How to Achieve a Soft & Shiny Fur Coat for Cats & Dogs?

Your pet’s skin and coat reflect what’s going on inside its body. When the fur becomes dull, the first thing we need to look at is its diet.

Cats and dogs need protein, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats to maintain a healthy body and shiny fur coat. If your pet is on a low-fat diet or eating poor-quality foods, a dull fur coat is one of the first indicators of a poorly balanced diet. So not only does a soft & shiny fur coat highlight your pet's attractiveness, it is one of the best indications of whether your pet is in its pink of health! So how do you achieve a soft & shiny fur coat?

Serve them fatty acids

Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are very important in your pet’s diet. They both help to regulate the skin’s oil production and improve balanced hydration. This leaves the skin and fur hydrated, plumper and youthful. Omega-3 & Omega-6 also help in the inflammatory response of the skin. 

Add protein to their diet

Protein is an indispensable component in hair durability. Ensure that you are feeding your pet high-quality foods that are high in proteins and amino acids, and low in grains such as grains and wheat. 

Selecting the right shampoo

Just like humans, our pets may or may not react to different products. What you apply/use on your pet’s coat has a huge impact on how it looks. Commercial brand shampoos will take a toll on the quality and feel of the fur over time. Long-haired cats and dogs need regular conditioner application, while pets with dry skin or other conditions require shampoos with natural topic oils to keep them nourished and silky.

Regular grooming regime

Some pet owners may feel that it is unnecessary to brush their cats as felines are known to be fastidious groomers. But did you know that regular brushing helps to spread naturally occurring oils on your pet’s fur coat while massaging and enhancing blood circulation? By removing loose fur and dirt from the fur coat regularly, pet owners will also notice a drop in loose fur flying around the house and less "glitter" sticking to dark coloured clothes.
