Get some salmon oil in a pump and squirt a pump or so on the food. Grizzly Salmon Oil is a good one and dogs and cats LOVE it (and it is really good for them for omega 3 fat acids). Also, you can get fish oil capsules (they are like $10 for a really big bottle at Sam's Club or Costco) and empty the capsules over the food. Chicken Soup, Merrick, Innova, and Felidae are also good foods to try. I don't have cats, but my ferret does well on Chicken Soup's kitten (it's actually better than the majority of ferret foods).

Dry skin.... you should prob use an oatmeal kitty soap.. Changing their food will not have much of an effect...If your cats are finicky eaters you should NOT keep changing their food.. They'll become even more finicky if you keep changing it on them... You should try one natural ones at pet smart or pet co. Eventually they will eat...They are just testing you..(From a vets advice and from my experience)Hope that helps!!

I usually just let my kitties lick the oil out of the inside of the tuna can after I make tuna salad. They love it and it keeps their coat shiny and flake free!
