Re: keeping a gsd's hair shiny
It can take 6 weeks before you see a change! Don't switch just yet.
This is a very bad time of year for coats! Everyone is trying to get the winter parkas on! Here in the NE, My kids are actually blowing for the second time!
A bit young for thyroid problems, and allergies too.(Generally we see these problems over 1 1/2 years of age.
My girls at their one year mark get very slow at eating! Their growth has slowed down, and they don't feel the need to consume food as much as I would like them too!!! My dogs run on the light side(bred that way) so I catch myself trying to feed them too much.
On that note, Ilan, the foster that stayed home, is coming 3, and now eats so well I have to stop myself from giving her more when she asks. (She was the worst of all my pups for the picky eating contest!)
Hang in there and see if the food makes a difference!
