Default Help with greasy coat

Max has always had problems with his skin and coat, well my current problem is he currently has a very very greasey coat. So much so it horrible to stroke him, and as I show him I shore this is not what judge's want.

Is there anything I could use that would cut down the grease without having the bath him, as he has a big phobia of the bath.

An oily coat is often related to the diet. What is he being fed for food and treats?

what about one of those powders that you can use to "wash" your dog or cat?
I know for humans you can just use talcum powder to absorbe grease in hair...

You can get non-rinse foam shampoos from pet shops so you don't have to put him in the tub.

You could also try talcum powder, it does absorb grease and on a goldie it won't look too bad.

Simba's coat gets greasy at this time of year, because she keeps getting wet on walks, so that might be partly to do with it too

I have issues with my one with a greasy coat. I find rather than using shampoo to bath them I just rinse them in a baking soda/water solution and that seems to help a bit. Then sprinkle some baking soda on the fur once-twice a week and comb through seems to help too. I show my one Malinois and nothing is worse than having the judge run his fingers through to feel his coat and fur and its greasy. Not a show fault but its still gross..lol.

My border collie often has to make public appearances. She is very sensitive to what's in her diet and when I could no longer get a certain dog food I went through several trying to find one that worked for her. On some her hair fell out and on others she had the same greasy coat you describe. It was so bad that even fresh out of the tub she looked horrid. I put her on a super high quality human grade food (costs the earth ) but her coat is gorgeous again. No dandruff no thin hair and no grease!

Start by feeding him a better food. There are many that are better and cost no more or about the same as Science Diet. I use and recommend Blue Buffalo. Its about the same price as Science Diet and is much better food: no corn, no wheat, no soy, omega 3 for healthy coat.

is it only greasy fur or does your dog has odor too?

cause when your dog has dog odor plus greasy fur, it could be an indicative that he has low thyroid.
