Ways to help improve your dog’s dry skin
Vitamin E is good for your dogs with dry skin. Applying vitamin E oil directly to the skin, or soaking bath with vitamin E added to the water. Or vitamin E pill.
Yogurt and Acidophilus Plain yogurt is a healthy treat for your dog. The live acidophilus in the yogurt keeps the good bacteria in your dog's intestines in balance so that bad bacteria is swiftly knocked out. If your dog is on antibiotics, a little yogurt will also help keep yeast infections at bay. This also applies to puppies.
Add ½ teaspoon of olive oil to the dog food a couple of times each week. This will improve your dog’s dry skin from the inside out. Brushing your dog’s coat could help to control and eliminate itchy and irritated skin.
Maybe you've noticed some hair loss on your dog in addition to the scratching. Most common diagnosis is usually allergies.
It is always best to ask your vet.
