Resolved Question:

What can I do for my cats dry skin? I used to put peanut oil in my dogs dinner for his dry skin (he's long past) but didn't know if peanut oil was okay for cats. I logged on and asked befor but accidently clicked out! UGH! And it's Friday!

Hi there!

Sorry for the inconvenience!

The best thing for dry skin in cats is Omega 3 fatty acids which can be purchased at the pet store. The best product is Vitacoat. This has Omega 3 fatty acids and other nutrients for healthy skin and coat.

Good Luck!
