Dr Lyons Skin and Coat

We received Dr Lyons Skin and Coat supplement along with the Liver Support supplement from Chewy a couple of weeks ago to use and review.
We did our review on the Liver Support a couple of weeks ago.   Mom has not noticed anything earth shattering about my health or my skin or my poo.   I do not have liver issues so if I did, this could be a different story.  
 Awhile back, we told you about my less-than perfect paws aka hairy dog feets.   I did see my vet and he prescribed the Vetoquinol Care, which mom has been giving me until Chewy sent us the Dr Lyons Skin and Coat Support supplement.  
 As you can see, my feets pretty much still look the same.   Mom applies coconut oil daily.  We find that the coconut oil works best for me.   This condition will not get better.  It sounds like I will have the Hyperkeratosis for the rest of my life. 
So mom started me on Dr Lyons Skin and Coat supplement several days ago~

**Help support your dog’s skin and coat health with Dr. Lyon’s Skin & Coat Support Soft Chews. Guided by science and inspired by nature, they’re formulated with key nutrients chosen for their coat-enhancing properties including salmon oil, which is rich in omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids as well as EPA and DHA. This targeted blend of omegas helps maintain healthy skin and a lustrous coat, as well as promote normal shedding levels for dogs of all sizes and coat types. Plus, these soft chews are naturally flavored with cheese and liver so they’re a delicious treat you can give daily for skin and coat health maintenance.

  • Soft and chewy so they’re easy to give just like you would any treat, according to your dog’s age and weight.
  • Comes in a convenient container with an easy-to-open lid to preserve maximum freshness.**
Unfortunately, salmon oil and me do not get along well together.  My belly broke out in pink spots and I got itchy very quickly.    Mom stopped the supplement immediately and we are back to what my vet recommended.    My tummy is back to what it was before the flare-up and this is a good thing.    Mackie will be visiting us in a couple of weeks so we can see how the supplement works for him.
We want to thank Miss Natalie and Miss Kirsten and the Chewy team for letting us try out and review these supplements.    We wish that the Skin and Coat supplement would have worked out for me.  Salmon oil is a wonderful thing - just not for me.

Geez, mom.  You could have chosen a pic that didn't make my butt look so big!

Love ya lots♥


  1. oh how bad that the salmon oil caused itchies.... our brother Easy was allergic too and we made the same eggs-perience. But maybe your bro will like it and you can share some egg-citing news ;o)

  2. Thank you for the update. Our only problem with my coat is that I shed a lot. But I also get Salmon when Muzzer cooks it and some salmon from my foodables. Hope you feel better from the tummy upse.


  3. Great review Molly....we are glad you have found something to at least maintain your beautiful feets.
    MOLMOL Mom and I think your tush is purrfect!!
    Hugs madi your bfff

  4. Your butt does NOT look big!!! Really! We all know how the camera can lie!

  5. My late esteemed colleague Joey dog had hyperkeratosis on his nose. Ghostwriter put a little olive oil on it every day. When he wasn't eating well, she gave him a spoonful of olive oil or a pat of butter every day for his skin and coat and for the extra calories. He loved it.

  6. Dear Molly,

    That's lot of body stuff you have going on! We are glad that some of it is easy to fix (no more salmon oil). We are sorry to hear about your paws.

    I will have your salmon oil! Do you think it would help with the matted fur that suddenly happened on my butt? I am sure it would. Yes. Salmon oil. Cheese. Liver. I must get the salmon oil. With cheese and liver. *drool*


  7. That is too bad about the salmon oil bothering you, Molly. But at least you gave it a try. We hope the coconut oil continues to help your poor feeties.

  8. We will try all different things until we find something that will work for us. It was nice of Chewy to let you try it.

  9. Hairy feet it is a wonder I don't have hairy feet for Lee rubs lanolin oil on my pads to keep them soft. So sad you are allergic to salmon for I love the skin Lee gives me when she grills salmon for herself.

  10. That's too bad this supplement couldn't help you. We use sardine/anchovy oil; but I imagine you are maybe allergic to all fish? Coconut oil is wonderful too, and Luke just loves it. I can't use it on his skin though because he will just lick it all off! :)
