    With the cold weather and cranked-up heat—comes the dry and itchy skin—and with the dry and itchy skin—comes the moisturizers. But while you’re protecting your own skin—you might want to think about Fido’s. Dogs experience the same winter skin woes as us humans—and unfortunately you can't use Nivea or Clinique on them. Here are some other ways to protect your pooch from that pesky winter skin.

    Step1
    Brush your dog frequently to get rid of dead skin cells. Brushing stimulates circulation and the production of oil, which in turn provides moisture. This applies to both long and shorthaired dogs.
    Step2
    Use a moisturizing shampoo, with an ingredient such as lanolin, that is specifically formulated for dogs. People shampoos can upset a dog’s pH balance (which is different from ours), and thus be harsh on their skin.
    Step3
    Shampoo your dog less frequently during the cold months. Too much bathing can strip the coat of its natural oils. Every few months is normally a good schedule, unless you have a dog that spends more time outdoors.
    Step4
    Feed your dog a quality brand of food (or homemade diet) with omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols are a source of Vitamin E) for a healthy skin and coat. You might also want to check with your vet about giving your dog a fish oil (omega-3) supplement. You can break open a fish oil capsule and add it to your dog's food.
    Step5
    Use a room humidifier to moisten the air if your home is too dry from running the heat.
