Greasy coat?

by Tisha
(Ann Arbor, MI)

Do GPs tend to have greasy skin? When I pet mine I end up with greasy, slightly black fingertips. She is all white and appears clean. I have only had my 9 year old rescue 2 weeks and will be taking her for a "spa day" next week. Just wondering if a good bath will help or if the grease is typical for GPs?

Greasy Coat

It could be the pup's diet. Make sure you are feeding a high end diet and try raw. http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/starting-puppy-on-raw-diet/

If from a reputable breeder, they will certainly be more than happy to help with this issue.

coat

A Pyrenees coat is covered with a waxy substance which is natural. It repels dirt , if they get muddy when it dries the dirt virtually falls off with a brushing.

Your issue sounds like it is diet related Pyrs require a high quality food. I also feed raw which is the best way to go, but that freaks some people out.

Misti has been raw fed since she was a pup her coat is white as snow , soft and luxurious. Her ears are sparkling clean , so clean our vet said she has never seen a dog's ears so clean in all her years of practice. There are many benefits to raw feeding.

I am sure your Pyr will love a spa day :-D
