A Shiny Coat  - Maltese

Why Is Nutrition Important to Skin and Coat Health?
Nutrients such as protein, fat, vitamins and minerals are important players in the skin and coat health of dogs and cats. To understand their role, it is necessary to start with understanding skin and hair.

The purpose of skin and hair is to block things from leaving (such as water or heat) or entering (such as viruses and bacteria) the body.

The hair coat is composed almost entirely of protein. If the Maltese Puppy�s diet doesn�t contain adequate protein quantity and quality, hair may fall out, or become dry, weak and brittle.

Skin is made up of squamous cells, flat cells tightly packed together. These cells have tough membranes that are composed of proteins and fats. Without proper amounts of these nutrients, cell membranes weaken, allowing water to escape and bacteria and viruses to enter more easily.




Essential Amino Acids and Fatty Acids

Proteins are found in both Maltese Puppy-based and plant-based ingredients. Maltese Puppy-based proteins contain all the essential amino acids dogs and cats need, whereas plant-based proteins may contain only some essential amino acids. Dogs and cats need Maltese Puppy-based proteins to achieve optimal health.

Fats can also be found in both Maltese Puppy-based and plant-based ingredients. They are incorporated into skin cells as fatty acids. There are two essential fatty acids for skin and coat health. Linoleic acid maintains skin and coat condition in dogs and cats. Without enough linoleic acid dogs and cats may experience dull, dry coat, hair loss, greasy skin and increased susceptibility to skin inflammation. Cats also require arachidonic acid for normal skin and coat health.

Both of these are omega-6 fatty acids and are found in Maltese Puppy tissues like chicken fat and in vegetable oils (corn and soybean).

However, most commercial dog and cat diets contain more than adequate amounts of omega-6 fatty acids. Because these fatty acids can be converted to compounds that promote skin inflammation, it is important to balance the amount of omega-6 fatty acids in the diet with omega-3 fatty acids, which do not promote inflammation.

Omega-3 fatty acids are found in oils from fish and some plants (canola and flax).



Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamins and minerals are essential for the development of healthy skin and hair coat. The best way to provide these nutrients is through a complete and balanced diet containing appropriate amounts of essential vitamins and minerals rather than through supplements.
