Cindy,

Check your local pet supply store for fatty acid supplements.  As I
understand it, corn/olive/vegetable oils are not balanced in terms of
the omega-3, -6, and -9 acids.

There are many brands to choose from, in liquids & capsules.  Among the
more well-known & readily available ones are DermCaps, Linatone, and
Lipiderm.  I use Veterinarian's Best liver-flavored liquid for my older
German Shorthairs, but I had to try a few before I found one that my
pickiest eater would tolerate, as I wanted to use a liquid formulation.

Corn oil is said to be high in the fatty acids you want.  Try the store-brand
of a corn oil.

As Ben Franklin allegedly used to say, "I may be wrong, but" it's my
understanding from my research that corn oil is *not* a balanced source
of fatty acids, i.e., cooking oils may be high in some fatty acids, but
not in balance with the others.  I believe you're better off buying any
of the fatty acid supplements found in pet supply stores.  (And no, I
don't own such a store!)

I use Veterinarian's Best liver-flavored (blech) liquid for my older
German Shorthairs, and it's made a significant difference in their coats
& skin.
