On one of the groomer forums, a poster mentioned adding spirulina to her dog's food to improve the quality of coat. Anybody ever heard of that? Any more information from those that have used it or are opposed to it?

it's a plant or algae or something I think. Green stuff anyway! haha. A supplement for people, but can't remember what it's touted as being good for...

Spirullina is fresh-water algae !!!

It is sold as supplement for human consumption and as any algae has many trace minerals and oils that are not abundant in other food sources.

If dog shows no allergy to that supplement - it should not be a problem for him to eat it - but I would stay on low dose - just in case :rolffleyes:

I would guess that fish oil and primrose oil would have better effect on coat though :rolffleyes:
