Hi everyone! I’m new here. I have a giant female husky names Zoe who’s 7.5 years old. I stumbled across this site while looking for grooming recommendations and diet advice.

Zoe has had some skin issues. In the summer she gets a really yeasty smell and the fur behind her back legs  becomes more oily and it’s  almost  impossible to get the dead undercoat out. The vet just gave me a medicated shampoo ( phytovet CK).  It seemed to get a lot of the greasiness out and she smells better but I was wondering if anyone had advise on how to prevent this.  She does like to go swimming and I have a professional forced air dryer I use after she gets wet. I typically only use shampoo 2 a year bc I was told it’s Not good to over bathe huskies. I do give her water baths when she gets  really dirty. Any suggestions?

Welcome 

She is pretty.

 I have the opposite issue. Mine have really dry skin.

Thanks!   She’s world!  Zoe’s only oily on her rear parts and legs.  The rest of her skin is on the dry side as well
