dandruff can be caused by many reasons which include Lack of Fluids in the body,too low humidity in the ambiance Lack of natural Oil components and Fat in the Skin which is one of the major cause lack of a Clean and Nourished Bath ,Lack of Hygiene ,lack of regular brushing and massaging of the skin/scalp, lack of natural Body Nutrients and even STRESS in dogs can cause dandruff, try adding a teaspoon of fish oil or one sea cod oil capsule in his diet that will give him omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids together with Vit A and Vit D dry food lacks these , u will see results in a few weeks , and also brush him every day if not atleast ones in 2 days , this should do.

Raj - Before giving anything to your pet please analyze the routine of the dog ,like place, climate, food etc. Generally this occurs when a food change or change in climate or the place he had played cause allergic. It is a big thing to talk. Unfortunately I am running out of time so call me in 9916988553 if you would like to know more about this. I faced the same issues to my Lab from her 5 months and we learnt lot from her and finally we were able to cure that.

Thanks,
Ganesan.J

Dog dandruff is very similar to the dandruff that people get and in most cases is easily treatable. It's always better to consult a vet for proper guidance and treatment. Visit http://petnvetfinder.com and talk to the online vets there. They will provide you with the best possible solution. Trust me they are the best. They helped cure Duke, my sweetie, who had the same problem.
