Description

Essential fatty acids are nutrients which cannot be made in the body and have to be provided in the diet; they are essential for the formation of new cells and to keep the skin in good condition.

Viacutan uses the Borage oil GLA (gamma linolenic acid) essential fatty acid and is a balanced combination of plant and fish oils. This provides a very high level of biologically active GLA and is used as a dietary supplement to help skin conditions in dogs and cats.

My dog has very itchy lumpy skin, fed on raw.

8th Sep 2015
Jayne Burke

My dog is allergic to many foods I am finding out. He is especially allergic to fish or any fish oils make him vomit! Have been feeding raw diet for few months now, seems better but on feeding raw pure Turkey his skin has developed scabby lumps, can only believe also now allergic to Turkey as well as Chicken and Rabbit!! Is there any supplement I can give him?

This all sounds rather improbable. It is possible that your dog is allergic to lots of different foods, but it is unlikely that true allergies are involved here. It sounds more like his digestion is very unsettled and so is easily upset by many different things, but if that is all it is, he will end up being fine on most of those foods if and when it settles down. His skin might well be suffering because he is on a restricted and deficient diet, lacking in some basic nutrients. Ideally you should sort out a feeding plan with your vet, taking into account all the relevant history. Failing that I would put him on a good probiotic product and the best diet you think he can cope with. You could look at Pro-kolin Enterogenic and for the diet I might suggest a hydrolysed diet for a while, such as Purina HA. This diet contains no proteins which can cause an allergic response and so will make it very easy for the digestion even if you are correct about some dietary allergies. It also has all the necessary micro-nutrients in the correct proportions so he will not have any deficiencies. If this works you could keep him on these products, or gradually introduce change and see how things go.
