Essential fatty acids are nutrients which cannot be made in the body and have to be provided in the diet. They are essential for the formation of new cells and to keep the skin in good condition.
Viacutan uses the GLA (gamma linolenic acid) essential fatty acid and is a balanced combination of plant and fish oils providing very high levels of biologically active GLA to be used as a dietary supplement to help condition the skin in dogs and cats.
He was on it last year and his coat and skin were fabulous...it's very expensive though
If it doesn't help, then we will have some blood tests done and possibly go and see this skin specialist...fortunately he doesn't seem to be showing any other symptoms, ruling out thyroid/Cushings etc...
I'm so pleased Charlie is better...how long will he be on Atopica for?
