Zinc deficiency can be seen in our companion animals as two distinct syndromes.

Alaskan malamute zinc deficiency. I have a 4 year old alaskan malamute loki who has dandruff like flakes on some areas of his skin. Zinc deficiency mostly occurs in these breeds because the breed has difficulties when it comes to absorbing zinc. These individuals typically consume a diet with an adequate zinc content so their skin disease appears to be due to inadequate intestinal absorption.

In the end infections develop on the dog s skin. Chronic digestive issues often mistaken for food allergies often accompanied by bouts of diarrhoea and lack of appetite often mistaken for being a picky eater. This zinc responsive dermatosis occurs most often in the alaskan breeds like the siberian husky and the alaskan malamute although it has also been reported in the doberman pinscher and great dane.

Zinc deficiency causes the condition called zinc responsive dermatosis. It is estimated that only 5 to 40 of ingested zinc is absorbed in normal dogs. Zinc deficiency can well be a cause of low appetite.

However while the minimum required zinc is higher than for other breeds the maximum dosage is actually less which is why it is important to obtain professional advice. Zinc is an important mineral that helps in the production of skin cells. Zinc is one of the most important trace minerals in the body and it s responsible for the normal functioning of many bodily processes.

The more common syndrome is zinc responsive dermatosis of alaskan malamutes and siberian huskies and appears to be associated with decreased intestinal absorption of zinc. In huskies and malamutes the progression of illnesses due to chronic zinc deficiency may present as follows. Alaskan malamutes may suffer from zinc deficiency and sometimes need more zinc than is provided in a balanced dog food.

Malamutes in particular suffer from zinc deficiency. But it s not limited to zinc issues. The absence of zinc in the diet can cause various abnormalities affecting the skin metabolic function and immune function.
