Our amazing husky, Reuger apparently has a zinc deficiency. It makes his hair fall out in strange places like around his mouth, eyes and paws. Our choices to fix the problem are expensive tablets from the vet, cheaper tablets from PetSmart, or cheaper yet, a can of sardines once a week from Wal-Mart. Reuger got his first can last night and LOVED them! Good thing Chris is around...I would have opted for the more expensive options! Those things S.T.I.N.K!
On a side note, we made it home, safe and sound and on time. Round trip with no issues. I don't think that's ever happened to me before. It was really nice!
