DRY SKIN

 

  PIGGIES ARE PRONE TO DRY SKIN. IT NEEDS TO BE TREATED INTERNALLY AS WELL AS EXTERNALLY

1. BIOTIN. BIOTIN IS GREAT FOR THE SKIN, HAIR AND HOOVES! 

2. ADD 1-2 T OF GROUND FLAX SEED TO FOOD ONCE DAILY

     (FOUND IN MOST SUPER MARKETS AND HEALTH FOOD STORES) IT KEEPS BETTER IF REFRIDGERATED. WHOLE FLAX SEED IS NOT EASILY DIGESTED.

 

3. 1 FISH OIL CAPSULE DAILY – YOU DO HAVE TO CONSIDER HIGH MERCURY CONTENTS WITH FISH OIL

     (1000-1500 MG)

     BABIES MAY HAVE A HARDER TIME EATING THE GEL CAP, SO MAKE A SMALL CUT IN IT AND SQUEEZE ON FOOD

3. COCONUT OR OLIVE OIL AS OPPOSED TO FISH OIL. 1 T PER DAY

 

 4. FLINSTONE (OR GENERIC) CHILDRENS VITAMIN. 1/2 OF A VITAMIN TO BABIES UNDER 6 MONTHS OF AGE. 1 WHOLE VITAMIN OVER 6 MONTHS OF AGE.

 

 5. VITAMIN E - IS ALSO GOOD TO ADD. 1 CAPSULE

 

 YOU CAN USE ANY KIND OF DRY SKIN LOTION, BAG BALM, UDDER CREAM, BABY OIL, OLIVE OIL, COCONUT OIL (KIND OF MESSY)

 JUST BE SURE IT IS REALLY WARM, THEY HATE COLD LOTION.

 IF THEY HAVE A LOT OF DRY SKIN PATCHES, IT HELPS TO LOTION/OIL THEM UP GOOD AND THEN TAKE A SOFT BRUSH (RUBBER HORSE BRUSH WORKS BEST) AND RUB THEIR SKIN IN A CIRCULAR MOTION TO LOOSEN UP THE DRY SKIN.
