Description

Allergies and skin problems are common and problematic. Flea & mite bites, pollens, fungi etc can cause your dog to itch, scratch, have rashes and dry or inflamed skin. In addition, most types of commercial dog foods lack essential fatty acids (polyunsaturated fats omega-3 & 6) which can cause excessively dry skin and a dull coat.

Allergies are a result of your dogs immune system overreacting to the allergen, causing inflammation and itching. It is critical to get to the root of the problem. Check for bacterial & fungal (yeast) infections, parasites or sensitivities to different pollens or other environmental allergens. Some skin problems can be the result of digestive dysfunction so ensure that your dog's diet is species appropriate and that their gut is healthy and strong. For yeast infections we recommend a combination of our Liver Love to detox and Tummy Tastic to rebuild gut health.

As with any allergy, it is important to find the trigger and avoid or eliminate it where possible, whether environmental or food. In some cases, such as house dust mites, this avoidance may be impossible. Medication is sometimes necessary for immediate relief but for some is not a long term solution due to possible side effects and toxic build up.

Aside of allergies, it may be that your dog moults excessively, struggles to regain their coat after shedding or has lost their colour pigment over time. Certain breeds are more prone to these problems.

Skin & Coat is a premium 100% natural holistic superfood supplement. It contains omega rich cold pressed flaxseed oil and 7 of the best high strength active herbs; Nettle, Sarsaparilla, Camomile, Skullcap, Milk Thistle, Ginkgo and Liquorice. This blend will help to keep your dogs skin itch free and has a relaxing, calming effect.

This amazing formula contains herbs that have anti-histamine and steroidal properties, assist with detoxification, soothe the stomach, aid digestion, reduce moulting and restore colour pigment in breeds prone to pigment loss. It is a powerful antioxidant. Flaxseed oil helps to maintain overall good health of the heart, immune and reproductive systems, support mobility & circulation and balancemetabolism. As the herbal ingredients are in their active state they provide nutritional support.

Using holistic principles, Skin & Coat contains 4 adaptogens which are a unique class of healing herbs that help to balance, restore and protect the body both physically and emotionally. (for more information see the 'adaptogenic herbs' section of this website). The herbs in this formula have been selected by a holistic vet for maximum efficacy. Visible relief and health benefits can be seen in as little as 7 days in some dogs.

Feed once daily or every other day depending on the level of support required. Shake well before every use and store in the fridge to maintain freshness.

Available in 250ml, 500ml and 1 litre.

Ideal for dogs that have seasonal sensitivities, hot spots, rashes or redness, dry flaky skin, dull coats, moult excessively or have lost their colour pigment. Fantastic for getting coats in pristine condition pre-showing. Suitable for all breed types.

If your dog has additional symptoms together with skin & coat problems i.e. bad breath/lethargy/diarrhea, gas, bloating/joint pain/candida the underlying issue may be digestive dysfunction.

Not recommended for pregnant/nursing dogs and puppies under the age of 8 weeks old. Not to be used if your dog is known to be allergic/reactive to any of the ingredients listed or if your dog is taking blood thinning medication (anticoagulants)/blood modulators. Proflax Skin & Coat can be taken as an integrative approach alongside most medication, however, we suggest that you check with your own vet first as herbs can sometimes affect the absorption of certain medication.

Feeding guide

Use our food calculator for a guide on how much to feed your dog.

Feed as part of a balanced diet. Adult dogs should consume 2-3% of their ideal body weight per day and Just Tripe can form a portion of this. Every working dog is different. Adjust portions accordingly. Wash your hands, utensils and surfaces after handling any raw meat.

To give you an idea of portion size, Dexter is an adult male Boxer, weighing 26kgs. We feed him 500gr per day which is a tiny bit under 2% but it works for him as he does have some treats during the day as well. On the other hand, Maisie is a 2 year old female Boxer, weighing 22 kgs and we feed her the same as Dexter. This is because she is a high energy girl who never walks if she can run, so she needs a bit more food every day. So, use the above percentages as a guide and adjust for your dog, afterall, no-one knows them like you do.

Delivery options

Will my order arrive in one go?

Dogs About Town seeks out smaller, niche suppliers to bring you a collection of doggy goodies that's a little bit different from the norm. Because of this, when you order, you might choose goods from several different suppliers and that will mean that your order won't arrive in one package. For example, if you buy a lounge bed, nose-it toy and a chill pad, you'll be supporting 3 different small manufacturers and you'll receive 3 packages. Now, we know, this might seem a bit odd at first, but we hope you'll agree that it's worth it to find something just that little bit different and be able to support some of the smaller but beautifully formed suppliers and manufacturers.

A Quick Word About Packaging:

The world's resources are precious, so whenever we can, we like to reuse packaging that we get sent. Things like those polystyrene chips, shredded paper or bubble wrap. We also try to choose the most environmentally cardboard boxes we can and this means that sometimes, you'll get a box that looks too big for it's contents. But rest assured, we've done our homework and picked the best option we can, plus any packing that we use to fill the box is likely to be on its second use. Phew.

Your dog’s yummy raw food will arrive frozen and will be sent straight to your door by courier – no more lugging heavy sacks or tins back from the shops, yey!

Between Monday – Thursday, if you order before 1pm, your food will arrive the next day. Orders placed after 1pm on Thursday and before 1pm on Monday will arrive on the Tuesday.

If you are not going to be in when your order arrives, please let us know where we can leave it. It is packed so that it will stay frozen for some time after delivery so just make sure you pop it straight in the freezer when you get home.

The minimum order is 6kgs which is about 1 freezer basket full in an average freezer and approximately 2 weeks worth of food for a 20kgs dog. If you’re not sure how much to order, call us free on 0800 644 4662, or use our Portions Calculator.
