Assuming that your GSD is just undergoing coat changes because of shedding (without any other issue) -there are a host of supplements which tb are good for the skin & coat ...
The usual skin & coat supplements will be things like ... Brewers Yeast, evening primrose oil, balanced omega 3 & 6, linoleic acid, sunflower oil, flaxseed oil, lecithin, kelp etc ...
I'm not really familiar with the ready mix skin & coat supplements ... so cannot comment ...
The only skin supplement we like & use is Keepers Mix and that is available from the forum or Riccaval ... we find this quite effective & helpful ... A dash of Brewers Yeast is also good.
Along with supplements ... we find reducing intake of wheat & soya (using rice & oats as alternatives), minimising intake of chemical preservatives, and adding fresh olive oil ... to be helpful.
