Default Dandruff

Hi everyone. My 8 yr old chi, Emmie, has bad dandruff. She is a shorthair. I have usued coconut oil, though not regularly. Is there something that I should be doing for her? She does not itch or scratch. She is taking phenobarbital and potassium bromide for focal epilepsy. (she 'sees' things that aren't there) Other than that she is healthy.

Have you tried adding more fish oil to her diet? A good quality fish oil. Keep up with the coconut oil and maybe you can find a good moisturizing shampoo for her.

I've never had much success treating my dogs' skin conditions externally. I have however cleared up a variety of skin issues...flakiness, bald spots, scratching, hot spots...simply with dietary changes. Grainless kibble and Omega oils are highest on the list of those changes. I have a really good oil that I add to their kibble and it's done wonders for their coats and overall health. My vet said it's one of the best on the market...Ultra Oil Skin and Coat.

It's not cheap, but you don't need much for dogs as tiny as ours.

Thanks for your suggestions. Never heard of hempseed oil. Will try it.

I don't know about dandruff, but fish oil works amazingly fast on dry skin and coat. I can see a difference in a week. Need to wash everything with hot water constantly, though.
