    Default Doggy Dandruff!!!

    Hi i was just wondering if anybody else has a puppy with what can only be described as dandruff!! My puppy has it and at first i thought i was maybe bathing him too often and drying his skin a little. The vet said this is very normal and common in puppies. Maybe it just shows up more on Joey as he is a tri and the white dandruff shows up more on the black fur. Sometimes its worse than others.

    Is he scratching with it Angela?

    If so there is a condition commonly referred to as "walking dandruff", properly Cheyletiella mite and it could be this. Did the vet look at the dandruff under the microscope?

    I wouldn't bath a puppy too often, and only use special puppy shampoo. You could try adding a small amount of butter or margarine to his diet, about 3 times a week - this can help with dryness too.
