    My golden boy is getting dry itchy skin this time of year. He's itching to the point of hotspots and hair loss. I just switched him to a higher protein grain free food hoping that this will help. I was also wondering if I could add olive oil to his food a few times a week to help. If so how much should I add? He's about 85lbs. If you all have any other natural remedies for this it would be quite welcome.

    Thanks!!!

    A humidifer in your home may also help with your boy's dry skin. When I have the heat or ac on, the air is so dry in the house even for humans.

    I didn't even think of a humidifier. That will be something I will try also.

    Thank you!
