Rough hairs are generally an indication of worm infestation or mineral deficiency and dehydration. You can try giving your dog the below:
- Multivitamins and mineral formula
- Dewormer to eliminate any unknown parasites
Rough hairs are not shiny and are curly. For example, if a German Shepherd has curly hair and loses its shine, that would be known as rough hairs. A healthy dose of multivitamins will usually regain its shine.
We recommend multivitamins like “Zesty Paws multivitamins for dogs”.
