I have a German Shepherd with extremely dry skin in the winter months. We've tried so many products including supplements and shampoos from the vet. Every night I melt coconut oil rub it into her skin and brush it through. She loves it. I also give her about 1 tsp. per day as a treat. If I do it every night it helps with her scratching. This tub is good quality and a large quantity which I need. Definitely worth purchasing from Amazon. As an added benefit her coat is shiny and wonderfully scented.
