Your dog’s coat makes him look magnificent and feel great too. And his skin and coat play a vital role in protecting him from injury and germs, keeping him warm and acting as a first line of defense. All great reasons to give him nutrition focused on protecting him.
Extraordinary Dog Facts
A dog’s ability to shake himself clean after the muddiest puddle is nothing less than extraordinary. And the condition of the coat can reflect his overall health, vitality, and nutritional status.
Why it Works
Eukanuba is packed with important ingredients for a shiny coat like high quality animal protein from chicken, lamb, fish, and egg. These proteins are especially helpful because 30-35% of a dog’s daily protein intake is needed just to keep his skin and coat in good condition. Essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals and special nutrients also support skin health.
