We love our four-legged best friends, and we never want them to feel uncomfortable. If you’ve noticed that your pup has started to scratch more than usual, you might wonder what’s going on.
While there are a variety of issues that can cause this condition, dry skin is one of the most common -- and treatable. Like humans, dogs have skin that’s sensitive to external conditions. When the air is dry and cold, or when their bath products contain drying ingredients, they’ll feel the effects.
Thankfully, there are products that can restore this much-needed moisture and help your pet feel his best. Oater Coater ™ is one of them. Our ultra-rich dog skin conditioner, it’s a must-have for pooch pampering, designed to nourish your dog’s coat from the inside out.
Today, we’re sharing a little more about how it works, what makes it so effective, and how you can order some today!
Why Do Dogs Need Skin Conditioner?
Think about it: When your skin is feeling particularly parched, you reach for a powerful, effective lotion, right? The best ones are those that are fortified with nourishing ingredients to repair your skin’s protective barrier and help it retain as much moisture as possible.
If we treat our own skin with such care, why should our pups enjoy any less? When the telltale signs begin to take hold, you need a dog conditioner for dry skin.
It all starts with understanding your dog’s condition and knowing the signs to expect. Here are the symptoms to look out for:
- Hair loss
Wondering what’s going on? Most of the time, dry skin occurs as a reaction to an external factor, such as cold air or aggravating bath products. Other times, it can be a result of food, seasonal, or environmental allergies.
If you’re unsure what’s causing your dog to suffer from dry skin, your veterinarian can conduct an examination to investigate and understand what’s behind it.
It can be disheartening to discover that your pooch is suffering from any issue that affects their skin health and overall well-being. However, when you know which products to choose, help is always within reach. Let’s take a look at what makes Oater Coater the best solution for their dry, flaky, and uncomfortable coat.
What Is Oater Coater?
Oater Coater is our gentle, pH-balanced conditioner for dogs with dry skin. Not only is it veterinarian-approved, but it’s also cruelty-free, sulfate-free, and paraben-free, so you can feel great about choosing it for your pet.
Harsh soaps and other chemicals can bother your dog’s sensitive skin, leading to painful inflammation and irritation. They can also cause hair loss and coat damage and work against your efforts to give your dog the healthiest, shiniest coat possible.
At Friday’s Dog, we take a more tender and health-conscious approach, and you can tell the difference in our formula. It includes all of the good stuff that their skin needs, without any of the extra additives that it doesn't.
Fortified with essential fatty acids, proteins, and vitamins, it’s specially crafted to restore the natural oils on your dog’s skin. Daily activity and regular washing can strip away these oils, leaving your dog uncomfortably dry, but you can reverse the effects. By using Oater Coater immediately after their shampoo, you'll restore those oils and rejuvenate their coat.
In each bottle of our conditioner, you’ll find an array of moisturizing ingredients that pack a powerful punch against dry, flaky, itchy skin. These include:
- Camelina Oil
- Moringa Oil
- Wheat Germ Oil
- Marshmallow Root
- Baking soda
With just one application, you’ll notice that your pup’s skin will appear less irritated and inflamed. With continued use over time, you can successfully soothe and heal their coat and skin, improving their overall comfort and quality of life.
As an extra benefit, in addition to calming dry, irritated skin, our conditioner also detangles their coat! This can help you cut down on unsightly and uncomfortable matting, which can be frustrating for your pet to deal with and challenging to remove.
Your pooch will love the comforting, cozy scent and you’ll love how easy and safe it is to apply and use. You don’t have to book an expensive day at the doggie spa to give them that gorgeous glow they deserve!
How Does It Work?
What makes our conditioner so effective? The secret is the combination of unique, soothing ingredients, including natural oils.
When you read the list of oils in the bottle, you might wonder if the product will make your dog’s coat unnecessarily oily and slick. However, the opposite is actually true. In scientific terms, we explain this process as “like dissolves like”.
Put simply, when the natural oils in our product interact with the natural oils on your dog’s skin, they don’t compound each other. Rather, they work together in a beautiful, beneficial way.
Adding our oil-rich conditioner to your dog’s bath time routine will actually reduce excess oiliness. Your pup will enjoy a soft, supple coat with more shine and less irritation. In addition, these oils are also excellent inflammation busters, which cuts down on itchiness and discomfort.
In addition to oils, our dog skin conditioner also includes another natural ingredient proven to tackle dry skin: oatmeal!
There’s a reason we make oatmeal baths to soothe a variety of human skin conditions, from chicken pox to poison ivy. A great natural moisturizer and protectant, oatmeal contains special carbohydrates called polysaccharides. When they react with water, those polysaccharides help seal the skin so it can retain moisture and doesn’t dry out as easily.
The same oatmeal plays a starring role in Oater Coater. It’s even in the product name! When oatmeal works together with Camelina, Moringa, and Wheat Germ Oil, the result is a soothing, enriching conditioner that quenches dry skin and keeps it soft and protected long after each application. The baking soda helps amplify these effects in a natural, gentle way.
How To Use Oater Coater
Many dog shampoos can leave your pup’s coat looking dull and feeling dry. This is because they contain harsh chemicals that can be hard on their skin.
Our Oater Coater Dog Shampoo is the exception. Formulated with the natural moisturizing power of oatmeal, it fortifies your dog’s coat and helps prevent irritation before it occurs.
We recommend using this shampoo as the first step in your dog’s bath time routine. Then, rinse and apply a small amount of Oater Coater Dog Conditioner.
Take your time and massage the product gently into your dog’s coat. Tell him how much you love him and what a good boy he is. Then, wait a few minutes and allow all of those calming ingredients to sink in and work their magic.
When the time is up, you can rinse your pup thoroughly using a spray nozzle, making sure to remove all of the excess conditioner. Use a soft towel or a low-heat, professional hair dryer to dry their coat, and you’re good to go!
Our dog conditioner is exceptionally powerful but gentle enough for regular use. It’s the quickest and most effective way to kiss parched skin goodbye and infuse their coat with the moisture-rich vitamins and nutrients it craves.
The “Friday Feeling” our brand celebrates is one of relaxation, serenity, and calm. You and your furry pal will be ready to kick back and celebrate now that you’ve found the answer to their frustrating skin woes!
