my basset, Dinky, has resently recovered from a phantom pregnancy. She's moulting big time and her coat looks terrible. I've used a slicker brush and doesn't seem to move any of the dead hair! also the shime of her coat has gone. She looks a right old mess!
Anything else i can do for a quick fix?

Not sure about a quick fix, but does she have any supplements like cod liver oil? There is also one called barage oil i think it is, sure it is supposed to help with their coat.

i've resently added olive oil to her dinner to make her coat look a bit oily, but to be truthful i haven't seen a difference.

i was tempted to drizzle it over her coat lol

Hehe, you never know!

I know I have used Evening Primrose oil capsules straight onto my skin if its very dry, works a treat.

There must be a good conditioner for dogs, maybe a leave in one

People who show their dogs may know

My collie would have a tin of sardines in oil bi weekly added to her food and i swear by it. not only did she get the oil from the tin but also the omega3 oils from the fish ... and she LOVED it.

Was only ever bi weekly and to be honest i cant remember if i ever used tuna or not but i defo used sardines :)
