HealthyCoat is a company based out of Urbandale, Iowa, that has been in business since 1998. The founder of HealthyCoat, Scott Graham, grew up heavily involved in agriculture and livestock. HealthyCoat strives to give your pets the best of the best — a specially designed supplement for well-being and shiner, healthier coats. HealthyCoat isn’t just for dogs…there is also a formula available for horses, poultry, show animals, and goats!
What is the HealthyCoat Supplement, and what can it do for my pet?
HealthyCoat is a highly effective blend of liquid Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids, as well as vitamins and minerals. It is a minimally processed formula that is all-natural and has a flavor that your pet will actually enjoy! Through minimal processing, HealthyCoat retains all of the efficacious properties of the essential fatty acids and vitamins so that it can be the most potent. Essential fatty acids and vitamins are important for maintaining and improving your pet’s general health. If pets are deficient in these areas, they can suffer a number of problems ranging from a lack of energy, to an unhealthy coat. HealthyCoat can help prevent excessive shedding and can make your pet’s dry and flaky skin more moisturized. Does your pet have allergies, or problems with itching or hot spots? HealthyCoat’s formula can help ease these problems, as well as bald spots due to itching and skin problems due to flea bites. In the process of fixing these issues, HealthyCoat will give your pet a shinier and more full coat, as well as healthier skin. I didn’t realize this, but pets do not naturally produce essential fatty acids, so it is very easy for them to be deficient, and to start exhibiting these symptoms. HealthyCoat can also help ease the pain of arthritis and other forms of inflammation or joint issues, and support the immune system.
HealthyCoat contains the following ingredients:
Mechanically extracted soybean oil, flax seed oil, lecithin, niacin, biotin, vitamin B supplement, natural flavors and mixed tocopherols (Vitamin E as a preservative).
HealthyCoat is very easy to use — all you have to do is to put a pump or two into your dog’s dry or wet food each day. If your dog is under 25 pounds, you should use one pump (or .25 oz) per day. If your dog is 25-50 pounds, you should use two pumps (or .5 oz) per day. If your dog is 50-75 pounds, you should use three pumps (or .75 oz) per day. Finally, if your dog is over 75 pounds, you should use four pumps (or 1 oz) per day. Since HealthyCoat is so beneficial, there is no specific “period of use”…you should continue to use HealthyCoat as long as possible. Since HealthyCoat comes in a bacon flavor, most pets will love it, and will eat their food as normal, without noticing the added supplement.
I received one 16 oz. bottle of HealthyCoat for the purpose of this review. This couldn’t have come at a better time! As I have stated previously, we have a Dachshund mix that we adopted, named Lulu. She has had minor issues with itchy skin in the past, but it has never been as bad as it is now. We use paw balm and organic ear wash to combat some itching, but it has spread to other areas of her body. It almost seems that she is in a constant state of itchiness now, due to non-specific allergies; we can’t pinpoint exactly what makes her itch…whether it is food, or something environmental. It doesn’t seem to follow any regular pattern. Lulu has been itching so bad within the past month that she has actually been making herself bleed, and has been pulling out tufts of her short hair, creating small bald spots. She has hot spots and redness everywhere on her belly, legs, and paws. I have been using Benadryl, as directed by a local vet, but it can only help so much — it more makes her drowsy than anything, which only keeps her from itching while she is asleep, and it hasn’t been long enough to allow her injuries to heal.
Lulu really likes the taste of HealthyCoat’s supplement — probably because she loves bacon! I had no problem getting her to eat her food with HealthyCoat pumped over it. She is right on the line between 25 and 26 pounds, so I give her a pump and a half, because of her excessive itching. We started using HealthyCoat about three weeks ago, and we are already starting to see results, but will continue to use it. She is already itching less, and I think that HealthyCoat is helping her hot-spots, and for her to regain the hair missing from her bald spots. I have definitely noticed that it has been helping with her shedding..she was shedding constantly when she started to itch, so much that I couldn’t keep up with my supply of lint rollers. I haven’t had to pull hair off of my clothes and the furniture recently. I am very pleased with HealthyCoat.. if it continues to heal her, it will really be the only thing that ended up working. It makes me feel so bad to see her in pain, so I only have glowing things to say about this product! Lulu thanks HealthyCoat as well. 🙂
