Roki never liked fish based foods. In October, because of his skin problems, vet recomneded salmon oil capsules and biotin/zinc/methionin pills. Last summer his coat was sort of dull and matting a lot because of that skin condition, but now it is soft, silky, shiny and without any mats. He is eating homecooked duck meat for dinner and gets ZiwiPeak Dog Cuisine Venison (derhydrated adequate to raw diet) for breakfast. I may switch to ZiwiPeak completely because I think he is doing so great on it!
During last year I learned a lot about shampoo ingredients and how the affect dog coat. One important advice that I can give you is to read ingredients section on the label and never buy a shampoo that has sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate (SLS) in it because it takes natural oils from skin and coat and that can lead to dull, dry coat and skin, and in the end cause really bad problems. SLS is harsh detergent that can cause so many problems and even for me I never buy products that contain it. US market is full of wonderfull natural dog cosmetics. Research a little. I use Isle of Dogs Veterinary Grade Evening Primrose oil shampoo. it is grat for skin and coat.
