You know, I took my cat Echo to the vet a few months ago b/c he was having problems with dry skin and flaking. He was so dry and flaky he was losing hair! The vet couldn't find anything wrong with him and suggested giving him a drop of fish oil every day. He said if that didn't work, then we'll have to do bloodwork, which would cost me $200 (so much for having a free cat).
Well, it definitely helped with his skin. And for some reason, I had a major Polish moment and never even considered trying it myself!
If the grass looks greener on the other side, maybe it's time to start watering your lawn!
