Haven't heard of Royal Jelly for this but they do use it in dog shampoos.

Kelp has a lot of iodine in it and your dog food probably does too. So this could cause an imbalance.

I would try Krill oil or Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (no gmo's, no hexane).

Krill liquid: Krill Oil For Pets - Mercola.com

Krill gel caps: Krill Oil capsules (180 per bottle): 1 bottle - Mercola.com

Make sure you start out at a reduced rate and work up to recommended dose or the dog could get a gut upset.
