good food works well to get rid of dandruff. gradually introduce substantial amount of meat in his diet and see the difference.

hi .. i have st bernard fmale too.. people and vets will tell you lots of different stuff ... first of all do not feed it only dry dog food. its very good that you are giving him chicken and rice mixed with dog food. that is ideal . when you give him breakfast these are the supplements you must add : calcium ( ven cal is the easiest to give) for the bones s its a big breed, megaflex ( make sure you give him this as it has glucoseamine and most dogs in india have weak rear hinds leading to hip dysplacia. and also add glossy coat .. this should give him healthy coat and skin. apart from that give him animal fat ( ie chicken skin etc) alongwith the chicken rice and dog food. if chicken skin is not available freely then you can add little ghee to his meal. make sure he is bathed well and gets pleanty of exercise. exercise should idealy be given before sunrise and after sunset as it is cool then and your dog will not be lathargic. plz do not disregard my advice and follow it to the fullest because it will only benefit your dog . do not listen to people who try telling you that a saint should only be kept indoors and all that silly stuff . a saint is a dog like any other . my vet gave me a lot of advice like - give your dog only royal canin , dont let ur dog out of the house etc. DONNOT LISTEN TO ALL THAT ...

1)do NOT mix dry food and homemade. Dry food takes 14 hr to digest while homemade is between 4-6 hrs.Give it separately.
2) Provical.Pet calcium is best as its with MCHC
3) give chicken feet as source of glucoseamine
4)never tried Ghee with my dogs as have no info on that.
5)Excersie is MUST as Maithili explained.

ghee in little quantity is fine . do not over do it and as long as it is follwed with good amount of exercise its fine.
never heard of chicken feet as source of glucoseamine but if anil says so ... however megaflex would be a more convinient option.
i suggested ven cal as it is easiest to get ur dog to eat it , as opposed to tablets.
i have been givinh home food and dry food to dogs all my life and its worked wonders. there are lots of saint breeders (not indian) who would suggest the same , its always a better option to take advice from ppl who know abt saints and have lived with saints. most indins would not be aware of these things as they have not been in touch with the breed . however its always ure decision.

kibble is not good for dogs. the so called good brands aren't good either. kibble has too much grain based fillers. dogs are meant to eat meat. feed it a primarily meat based diet.
i have raised dogs since childhood but it was only recently that i shifted to exclusively meat based diet and can see the difference.

chicken bone joints (the cetilage/ligment type matter) are a good source of glucoseamine. be careful of the thigh bone though.
