Lisa, MeMe's hair only looks different to people who have seen her everyweekend for the last four months!!

Trust me she still looks good. How fast does her hair grow back on its own?

The info you provided on flaxseed and the repro for females is interesting, I have never heard of that before. Without any scientific background/etc, I don't think putting your female on a product for a short period of time would adversly affect her. The study says exposure during development, which I dont think MeMe is in that stage anymore.

If you want to go the all natural route and avoid the 'might be bad' supplements you can always give her eggs, olive oil, fish skin (mine like rainbow trout dehydrated skins - yes it smells). The omega's will fatten her up and help her coat and you know what is in them! I give our poochies DermCaps Liquid - it has safflower oil, fish oil, Borage Seed Oil, vitamin E. The vet gave it too us to help with skin and coat.

Just be patient with her and baby her coat all you can here on out. Don't worry it will grow back. You may want to get a bunch of satin and start covering all the dog beds in it. Condition her hair a lot, and maybe refrain from blowdrying her hair too often. Heather referred me to a Vellus product called satin creme which I use to band up Tito's hair on his face and moustache. I also band his neck and shoulders to help keep the hair from breaking. The product helps prevent breakage and is used for wrapping coats.

For shows you could also try a voluminizing shampoo to beef up the areas that are bothering you. Keep me updated!!

I am so sorry she has lost so much coat, I know you are upset about it, but she still looks great!
I wish Heidi could give MeMe some of her coat.....she has plenty to spare!
I have a suppliment here called "Seacure" and I would't mind giving you some.
I used it a couple years ago when I had a male dog with a horrible broken coat. While he was on it, his coat really improved. I recently got some more, but It's very high in protein so I am nervous about using it with my bladder doggies.

Oh goodness everyone - thanks for being so supportive. I suppose I'm ultra sensitive because she's still got that last point to earn! Katie I will take you up on your offer of the "Seacure" - Miss MeMe wouldn't have a problem with the protein.

Lisa I will trade you some Seacure for a few nights of borrowing your fancy new comb!

Well Katie, I'm dying to know if you've fallen in love with that comb. I'm hoping Jester's mats just slide right out.

I do recommend to everyone that you move close to a bunch of other Havanese owners - talk about the savings by being able to swap and share. It's such fun to visit too.

How often would one use supplements?
Could I simply add a tablespoon every week to my dogs raw diet? Or could I make my own supplements by giving certain foods?

hi, please feel free to start a new thread., as this is old. Suppliments are based on your dogs diet and it is totally an individual case. It's not advised to add just for the sake of adding.

I agree with Dave completely. You need to know why you want/need to supplement, and do so with guidance of your veterinarian or a nutritionist.
