Poor Rover, he is subject to my experiments too! I switched him to an all raw diet :) meat that is. What a difference that made in him. Right now he's just getting a raw egg with dry food. I have to save up for a big expense coming up. His extremely dry coat cleared up and he is much happier getting all raw. I believe the dry skin was helped by the egg so he's still getting those. He'll definately get the coconut oil, I give him the flax seed oil in capsules, they are so big I can't stand to take them all the time. It's the first thing he digs out of the dog bowl! :)
Someday when I figure out how to put up a pic I'll use him. He's my big baby.
Back in 1995 is when I got heavy into the rotational diet thing. My kids were little and they say the are now scarred from having to eat oatmeal, buckwheat pancakes and salmon patties, hee hee.
