Also, have you looked at the skin on her tail? Could she need a betadine bath? Maybe she has dry skin?
I think some investigative work is in order.
Yes, she has been recently wormed, and my friend (who is a vet) has checked her for them. Recently I have noticed that she had (and I guess this is the only way to put it haha) dandruff on her tail. Its not that she has a real dry skin there, she just had such thick hair. I've heard of it before, but what exactly would the betadine bath do for her? I know the circumstances in which to use one, but I'd like to know what exactly it does for the skin/tail?
And thanks for the advice!
