Allergies and skin problems are common and problematic. Antigens such as flea and mite bites, pollens, fungi and chemicals & toxins from processed food, medication or in the environment can cause your dog to itch, bite, scratch and have rashes or excessively dry or inflamed skin. In addition, most types of dog foods contain very little essential fatty acids (omega-3 & 6) which can cause dry skin and a dull coat.
Allergies are a result of your dogs immune system overreacting to the antigen, 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 allergen. 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.
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.
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.

Proflax Skin and Coat
An excellent nutritional supplement to keep a dogs skin and coat in healthy condition, especially for those dogs prone to itchy skin. We have Border Terriers and they love it. Also we find Proflax does not soften the harsh wiry Border coat as some oil supplements can do..important with our breed.
Seems to work well keeping my dog nice and shiny. Plus he really likes it! Win, win!
