Royal Jelly/ Kelp powder for Shedding
 
I was told that Royal Jelly and or Kelp powder would help to stop the excessive shedding. Has anyone had any experiences with either one of these products?

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.

royal jelly is very expensive , and should be kept frozen . We have apiarists at our weekly organic market .

I have royal jelly in the freezer , and propolis in the fridge to use in those moments when a bit of an immune boost is needed . Knock on wood so far so good in spite of this endless miserable winter !

My daughter and I supported apiarists in a movement against importation of adulterated , anti biotic trace carrying Chinese honey -- which is much more available than you think , one product with the initials B B .

a good source of usuable protein and a good source of trace and micro minerals builds a luxurious coat .

royal jelly would be a source of biotin , so would seeds , so would eggs with the egg white .

We use coconut and salmon oil to add to the food and everyone asks me how I got my pup to have such a beautiful coat. The shedding is not bad at all.

Great, I am currently using the coconut oil. Thanks
