Cat Dandruff: What that is, really?

Cat Dandruff is a problem for most of us cat lovers.

So what really is the problem, you ask? Sometimes, cats who are on a fat diet will develop very dry, flaky, skin. There are also some parasitic skin disorders, for example, Cheyletiella (a.k.a “walking dandruff”) , which might cause the coat to appear very dry and flaky. In addition, I’ve noticed an increase in these cases during the winter time. That is because the air gets drier than normal at that time.

So the solution to this annoying cat dandruff problem is:

  • If obesity is the issue, you'd have to put your cat on a weight-loss program - seriously, I am not kidding!
  • You may have your cat doctor evaluate the skin or coat. Make sure there isn’t a parasitic issue with your cat.
I’ve had great success treating cat dandruff. A fatty acid supplement will most of the time do the job. This supplement is very rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

Be patient in treating it. It might take about five weeks to see any changes, however, most of the time after that the coat looks good and there are minimal flakes you can find. How nice is that?

I hope those tips can bring you a little bit closer to a solution to get rid of cat dandruff.

I will talk about another issue with cat dandruff next time.

Most cases of dry flaky skin (seborrhea sica) are secondary to an underlying chronic condition. Underlying cases can be many:

1/parasitic: Cheyletiella mites(walking dandruff- large flakes), pediculosis (lice), Notoedres Cati (feline scabies)

2/ Dermatophytosis = ringworm (very common in cats esp. Microsporum canis)

3/hypersensitivity (food, contact allergy, atopy)and nutrition related (deficiency of nutrients, indigestion, malabsorption)

4/ Endocrine (diabetes mellitus, overdosage of glucocorticoids commonly used to treat itchy conditions and allergies)

5/Systemic: liver,kidney and intestinal disorders

So, it is advisable to have the cat checked over by a vet.
