Our weather has been all over the place lately and I recently noticed a lot of dandruff. I have bathed her in an oatmeal shampoo, but after a week and the dandruff is back! I was thinking about adding some coconut oil to her food, once daily. Any other ideas?

One of the biggest factors in contributing to dry skin/dandruff is diet. Adding coconut oil is a great idea. You can also add fish oil or flaxseed oil. If your dog is being fed a low-quality, grocery store food, consider feeding something more natural. There's a supplement made by Solid Gold called SeaMeal Powder that I recently discovered - it's great for skin and coat. I give it to the dog and the cats every day.

You can also look for shampoos that have coal tar or aloe in them.

Sonja has allergies and her nose, coat and skin were horribly dry. I switched her to "Wellness - Whitefish and Sweet Potato" mixed with "Organix - Salmon - Grain Free"

It's like night and day...her coat is soft...no more dandruff AT ALL...her dry crusty nose is gone. I've been very impressed.

She used to be on Science Diet Z/D Ultra due to her allergies but it just wasn't helping. So, I got the list of her allergies from out vet and started researching dog food labels.

Good luck!

Thanks for the ideas! Chey is currently eating Taste of the Wild, Sierra Mountain. I first tried the salmon version, but it gave her diarrhea... She has been eating the lamb version for over a year now, without any issues. I'm not sure what is causing the dandruff other than the change in weather. So I thought I'd try the coconut oil and see how that goes. I even plan on taking some myself! Turns out it has a ton of benefits for people also smile

When I had my rotties I used to wash them in tea tree shampoo and let it sit on them for 8-10 minutes before I rinsed and it used to get rid of the dandruff and give them a real nice shiny coat.

Sarge...tea tree shampoo? I've heard of it, but never have seen it. Can you remember a brand name or can I get some at Petsmart? I just gave Chey another bath outside yesterday with the oatmeal shampoo....good thing she Loves Bathes! Out of my 3 dogs, she is the easiest to scrub!

Espree has a Tea Tree & Aloe shampoo that I use frequently on flaky dogs.
