I've had good results with Fromm LBP. I would switch at a year old to Fromm adult. If you want to use a grain free food, earthborn holistic is good.

Salmon and coconut oil are excellent. I have had good results with Olewo carrots and beets. A general vitamin can help also. Conditioning coat sprays also help keep the coat and skin moistureized
