Both dogs and cats can have dandruff,also known as seborrhea.Although dandruff is not visually appealing, it alone is not often a serious condition. Essentially, dandruff is an indicator your dog or cat’s skin is dry. Your dog or cat may have flaky skin, where you may notice small pieces of dry skin when you groom your pet.
However, dandruff can be a sign of other skin or internal issues, so it is important to have your pet examined by a veterinarian to ensure it is only dry skin and not caused by another underlying condition.
Dandruff can also present itself in two different forms: oily and dry. Here is a list of dog breeds that are prone to oily or dry dandruff.
