6 Quick Cures For Doggy Dandruff

All dogs will get dandruff at some point throughout their lives. In the majority of situations, there is no severe health issue to be worried about; it is only a matter of how the dog seems. You may not be able to completely avoid dandruff, but there are techniques to regulate the condition and make it less noticeable.

Dandruff is most often caused by the dog’s skin cells spontaneously forming, dying, and flaking off at an extremely rapid pace.

Having a bad hair day, eating a bad diet, and being elderly are all variables that may make it worse and accelerate the pace of cell regeneration.

6 ways to control dandruff

Regular Grooming

A dog that does not get regular grooming will develop a buildup of dander and will seem filthy and suffocating due to the dandruff. Wash your dog on a regular basis and be sure to properly rinse out any items to avoid chemical burns or skin allergies on your dog’s skin.

Using a brush to brush your pet can help to remove loose particles. It will also stimulate the oil glands in the skin, causing them to secrete their own natural oils in response to the stimulation. Not to mention that it is quite calming for your pet and will assist in the reduction of tension in your household. Stress, as we all know, may play a significant role in the development of any illness.

Oatmeal Or Pet Dandruff Shampoo

In the same manner as “head and shoulders” would work miracles on humans, these shampoos and versions of them do wonders for dandruff as well. Make a thorough lather with it and let it on for approximately 10 minutes before washing it all off.

However, do not use human head and shoulders on your pet’s skin since it is very abrasive for his or her skin. Purchase a high-quality dog conditioner and use it after you’ve shampooed your dog. This will result in a coat that is very soft and smooth.

A Change Of Food To Improve The Diet

A diet that is compatible with your dog’s needs may reduce dandruff and promote a beautiful coat. Some diets are deficient in the essential oils and nutritional qualities that are required to maintain a healthy, lustrous coat. Over the period of two months, experiment with different foods and note any differences.

Added Oils To The Diet

Special dietary oils are available to add over food. They can be bought from any reputable pet provider, pet shop or veterinary clinic.


Add a little bit of fish like sardines as part of your dog’s diet. Fish can be given roughly once or twice a week on top of the already existing diet.

An environment with too low a humidity will not only dry out human skin, but also pets.  If your pet loves to live in rooms like the laundry room for example, install a humidifier to add moisture to the air.

A cause for concern…

In severe cases dandruff can be caused by a form of seborrhoea in which case you will need veterinary help.

If you have tried all the above ways to control dandruff and do not get any improvement, it is time to visit your vet.
