Default Dry skin...

My 13 week old Female shepherd is on Acana Chicken and she recently started to get dry skin and i was wondering if anyone has a recommended food to switch to from Acana, or should i just switch the flavor and see how it goes?

It may be the coat change that is causing the skin issue...many pups go thru a dry skin stage around this age. I would start supplementing with 1000mg fish oil capsule(human grade) and see if it helps.
The dry air with running furnaces also adds to it.....I run a humidifier during the Winter, haven't started yet, but will before long.

No. I would still be on puppy food if I were you.
