Dogs lose hair with the changing of the seasons, because of allergies and sometimes for no apparent reason. Regardless of why your dog is going bald, you can help him grow his coat back by pampering him inside and out.

Step 1

Feed your four-legged friend a well-balanced diet. Find a premium food that is high in omega fats. To be healthy on the outside, you need to start with the inside.

Step 2

Brush your furry friend’s coat every other day. Brushing from the skin up helps remove the dead hair and stimulates new skin cell production, promoting hair growth.

Step 3

Talk to your vet about adding omega-3 and omega-6 supplements to your dog’s diet. They reduce skin inflammation and help your dog grow a shiny, healthy coat.

Step 4

Bathe your dog at least once a week with an oatmeal shampoo specifically created for dog coat growth. This removes dirt and bacteria hindering coat growth.

Step 5

Mix 1 cup white vinegar and 1/2 gallon water in a spray bottle. Spray your dog after each bath to kill bacteria on his skin.
