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 with regular food 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
Skin & Coat Suitability

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 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.

Unfortunately my dog doesn't like it, it's too greasy and has a citrus smell which she won't go near. I've tried mixing it on her food but she won't eat it. On saying that it was a good price and fast delivery
Lovely product, have only been using it for a week, my dog seems less itchy which is good. I love the label, the bottle it comes in could be a better design as it’s quite oily it seems to leak when you put the lid back on after pouring. I just keep it on top of some kitchen roll
No noticeable difference to skin or coat. Very expensive and I wouldn’t buy again.
Thanks for taking the time to review David. We have a 92% success rate with our Skin & Coat formula and sometimes tweaks are needed diet wise to really help eradicate the problem. I am happy to chat this through on the phone.
Really starting to notice a difference in my Frenchies skin so I’m very grateful this was recommended to me
Fantastic James, thanks for taking the time to review.
Great Help For My Itchy Dog
