Adding a tbsp. of olive oil can decrease your dog’s dry, itchy skin, as well as add an extra kick of flavor to their meal. Often, dogs suffer from dry, itchy skin due to a lack of fat in their diet, and adding one tbsp. of olive oil to each meal can help cure this problem. Also, giving your dog this extra bit of fat will improve their health, as the fat provides them with energy and promotes normal development and function of body cells, nerves, muscles, and body tissues. The olive oil trick seems to cover all bases—relieves your dog of dry, itchy skin, promotes good health, and makes them believe them believe they’re eating a gourmet meal.
