Dandruff on cats

by Coreen Kerr
(B.C. Canada)

My friend has 3 black cats who now have dandruff. She has just moved from a gas heated house to an electric heated house could this be the problem? If so what can she do to treat them?

I tried to join for your news letter but you don't have Canada down as a Country is there another way I can join.

Thank you I really enjoy this forum.

Take care Coreen Kerr

Hi Coreen
thank you for nice comments about my site, i try to work very hard to make it an enjoyable place for cat lovers to visit.
If you go to the ezine sign up page if you look at the very top of the choices for country you will find Canada there.
Regarding the dandruff problem, it is worth checking that it is just drandruff and not

Scaly, flaky or crusty skin, sometimes with white skin flakes in the coat. - This can be from fungal infections or fur mites.

In which case you might have to get them checked for this via a vet first.

If it only dandruff then the vet will be able to recommend a shampoo as i do not have any personal experience of this myself with my cat. A pet groomers may also know of a shampoo you can buy.

Thank you for being a part of my website and i hope you will continue to visit.
Best wishes
