Dandruff

Herbal dandruff treatments for dry, itchy, scaly, white, flaky patches of skin on your cat or dog.

The immune system is a complex array of cells that are found throughout your pet’s body. Immune cells are designed to function in conjunction with one another to provide a fortified defense against unwanted invaders. It is an intricate system that keeps your pet healthy and protects them against all sorts of invaders including allergens, viruses, bacteria, microbes, parasites and toxins.

The immune system is also directed at facilitating normal function and is not intended to be suppressed or stimulated. In cases of dysfunction, an animal’s body requires whole body systemic support. If your pet’s immune system is weakened, all of its bodily systems are at risk.  

An animal’s coat is the most visible sign of health and wellness. Dandruff is loose, dead skin cells that flake off from the outer layer of the skin, catching in your pet’s fur. Dandruff can be caused by a variety of reasons, including fungal infection, sensitivity to fungus on the scalp and food or environment allergies. Itchy skin may lead to scratching and hair loss, producing a patchy coat.

Dandruff can also be related to systemic problems, such as overactive oil glands, which cause surrounding skin to become dry and produce flakes.

Cold weather, dryness, excessive bathing, ongoing stress or a weakened immune system can also all cause dandruff.

Conventional Remedies:

Diagnosis and treatment will depend on the cause of the dandruff. Most animals will experience dry skin at some point in their lives, and with the right care, most skin problems are easily corrected.

Depending on the cause, treatment may involve topical creams. Topical creams may have potential side effects. Your vet may also suggest supplementing your pet’s diet with omega-3 oils and a multi-vitamin.

Do not change diet suddenly as this may cause an imbalance of natural oils and consequently a dry, flaky skin.

Never use human cosmetic lotions on your animal’s skin. These products contain rich chemicals that can cause irritated skin.

A tablespoon or two of olive oil added to the food a few times a week can help improve skin and coat health by stimulating natural oils in the skin.

Dry your pet thoroughly after washing, as shampoo residue can dry on the skin and cause flaky skin, itching, rashes and chronic dandruff. 

Vitamin A helps to maintain healthy skin. Sources include carrots, squash and sweet potatoes that can be added to your pet’s diet.

Brush your pet regularly, but GENTLY, to loosen dry skin cells and dandruff flakes.
