Keeping a Dog's Coat Healthy

Martha Stewart Living Television

One of the best ways to keep your dog's coat silky and soft is to add flaxseed oil to his or her diet. You'll find it at most health food stores, but you can also make your own. Obtain some flaxseeds and a mortar and pestle (a food processor will also do the job). The amount of flaxseed you should give a dog depends on its weight; 1/2 teaspoon per 10 pounds body weight is a suitable ratio. Put the flaxseed into the mortar and grind thoroughly. Then, add it to your dog's food.
