Question Dandruff

Hi, just looking for a little advice, my cat Frank seems to have a good amount of dandruff going on. He is a black cat and it looks like someone has sprinkled salt on him, is there anything that I can do to get this under control and possibly get rid of it??? Thanks in advance.............Paulette

paulette you can add omega fish oils to his diet to help with coat and skin. They usually come in soft capsules, you can pierce it and squeeze the contents onto his food.

Or switch his diet to a food that contains omega fish oils.

When switching diets, be sure to do so gradually, and use of a probiotic during the switch is a good idea.

Also, if you don't already, daily grooming with a brush or comb will help, by removing loose fur and distributing oils.

Hi Paulette, good to hear from you again !

Yes, I also give mine the Omega fish oil in soft capsules, they all love it, for the wet food, I try to buy those with special ingredients that are good for skin and fur to their skin's condition has been maintained quite good so far..

The daily grooming will absolutely help, I started this daily ritual just recently, and it was Acer who gave me this nice suggestion...

Wishing Frank bright, healthy and shiny coat without that shiny flakes !
