Chemicals and additives can be found in the air that we breathe and a large amount of the food that we eat. It’s hard to avoid environmental toxins from pesticides and traffic pollution and preservatives in food. These toxins can also have a negative affect on our dog which can cause sensitivities.
Some sensitivities in dogs can appear out of nowhere but may have built up over time. Common sensitivities most often result from an immune overreaction to environmental toxins but can include fleas, mites, seasonal pollens, fungi and numerous others which cause your dog to itch, bite and scratch. Most commercial dog foods contain additives and preservatives with very little levels of nutrients and balanced essential fatty acids. Symptoms of a food sensitivity are scratching and itching of the ears and paws and a poor digestive system.
As with any of the above sensitivities, it is important to find the trigger and avoid or eliminate it to offer relief. In some cases, such as house dust mites, this avoidance may be impossible. Medication is sometimes necessary to help but not a long term solution as it can cause other health problems.
Skin & Coat is a premium 100% natural holistic superfood supplement that will help your dog to manage their sensitivities. It contains omega rich cold pressed flaxseed oil and 7 of the best high strength active herbs; Wild Nettle, Sarsaparilla, Camomile, Skullcap, Milk Thistle, Ginkgo and Liquorice which helps to keep your dogs skin itch free and has a relaxing, calming effect.

It will also help to keep their coat shiny and reduce moulting so is ideal for breeds thats shed their coat and needs to get it back for showing purposes.

We have 2 patterdale terriers with skin which flares up in the summer due to dust. We live on a farm so hard to keep them away from these conditions but this oil has really calmed their skin and now feels lovely and soft rather than like dry leather. Our old terrier of the 2 is like a new dog on this oil suddenly got a new found energy so must have improved his slight arthritis too!
Thank you for giving us a 5-star review!
I rate all of the proflax range highly as they use the best ingredients & only one type of oil.
I was using another well known make of oil but that was a mix of different oils & my dog is very sensitive, once I changed to proflax the difference in her coat & scratching was almost immediate
Thanks for giving us such a great review!
Still not absolutely certain proflax skin and coat has made a huge difference but Ginny seems less itchy. It does seem to suit her better than the previous oil I was feeding her. Hopefully the improvement will continue. I'll report again after a few months.
Skin and coat
Thought this would help my dog to stop itching but as of yet he is just the same but it did work last year!
There has been some improvement to my dogs skin and he's not scratching as much, but it is very much 'early days' as to whether Proflax will be a cure.
Thank you for reviewing our products. We're happy to hear that there has been improvements to your dog's skin. However, we like to stress that Proflax is not a cure. It can help improve your dog's skin and coat, but will not cure any conditions they may have. We hope this clears any confusion.
