How to Reduce Moulting with Yumega Plus
1 CommentWednesday, 7 January 2015 | Kate
Your dog's hair requires a constant supply of nutrients to remain anchored in the skin and reduce moulting. Nutrients that support healthy hair are the same as those that support healthy skin: vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids.
Hair that doesn't receive a balanced supply of nutrients becomes dull, loosens, and falls out, so its important to feed your dog a high quality diet to reduce moulting. One of the key things is to ensure they have sufficient omega oils in their skin and coat to cope with the drying effects of winter.
Omega 6 LA is the key component of the skin's moisture barrier and helps to stop the skin from drying out, enabling it to hold on to the hairs and reduce moulting.
Omega 6 GLAhelps to nourish and replenish the skin. By nourishing the skin, it ensures the skin stays healthy and maintains active coat growth rather slipping into a resting phase and losing the hair.
Omega 3 ALA helps to keep the coat in good condition. These oils help to coat the outer coat hairs, providing waterproofing and protection from the outside elements.
