How To Get Rid Of Cat Dandruff


Have you noticed white flakes on your cat’s fur? If the answer is yes, your cat could be suffering from Cat Dandruff.  You may think it is just cosmetic, but it could be a sign of a medical condition.  Your cat’s skin is a reflection of how your kitty feels on the inside so while topical lotions may provide some short-term relief, getting to the root cause is the only way to solve the problem.

Along with the white flakes, you may notice that your cat is scratching more (especially around the ears) and the skin in the affected area is inflamed.  Some of the most common causes of cat dandruff are allergies, poor diet lacking essential omega 3 fatty acids, diabetes, hormonal deficiencies, and poor grooming (often occurs in older cats).   It is important to see your veterinarian to determine the cause of your pet’s dandruff, as some conditions will require medical treatment.

Cats with dandruff and allergies can benefit from a hypoallergenic,  low carbohydrate diet.  Best options are to eliminate dry food (high in starchy carbohydrates) and choose a raw frozen or freeze dried raw novel protein diet in combination with some canned. Some proteins such as poultry are an allergen for many cats so avoiding common food allergens is very helpful.   Power Probiotic,  Proaller and Notatum Drops are very helpful for improving allergy symptoms, scratching and itching.   Amazing Omegas is a concentrated therapeutic fish oil providing a powerhouse of Omega 3s in just a few drops.  These omega 3s can give your cat a lustrous, beautiful coat and help eliminate dandruff.
