Put an end to dog dandruff

No more dog dandruff

If you dog has dry and flaky skin dandruff often becomes a problem. The difference between dandruff in dogs and dandruff in humans is the fact that it doesn’t show up as much as it does on people.

Veterinarians refer to dry skin in canines as dry seborrhea. Itching of the skin is just as unpleasant to a dog as it is to humans – and it is practically impossible to teach a dog to stop itching when it gets really bad. The dry skinned canine will most often scratch himself raw leaving an open door for infections.

Causes of dry, flaky skin and dandruff in dogs:

  • Natural condition of your dog
  • Frequent bathing
  • Allergies
  • Parasites (such as walking dandruff)
  • Infections
  • Improper diet (lack of fatty acids)

Consult your veterinarian

If your dog is losing fur, shedding more, scratching a lot, has a rash you should consult your veterinarian. Also, if it is evident that your pet has flaky or greasy skin, and dandruff you should see your veterinarian. Other signs you should look out for are the development of a rash, skin sores, scales, hives, or bald patches. Unusual weight gain or lethargy are also warning signs. Does your pet prefer the indoors during winter? Is he having trouble breating? Does he have loose skin? A sunburn? Does the color of his skin appear to change or are there purple / red discolorations of the skin? Does he have swelling beneath the skin? A sore that does not seem to heal or yellow skin in the lip, abdomen or rectal area? If any of the above signs are present you should consult your veterinarian. Depending on the severity of the your veterinarian has a number of options that will put an end to the problem
