Doggy Dandruff ):
My dog, Sirius, has a serious dandruff problem! lol It was just his back at first, but now it's his whole body. He's very itchy and smelly. If you pet him your hands have a white/grey dust on them.
He's a rescue that I got 3 years ago. He was only 5 months at that time, very malnourished and had a similar dandruff problem.
I really think it's his food, he's being fed Alpo dry food. He loves it, he always eats it. I've been giving him vitamin E, with no avail.
I'll be switching him to Taste of the Wild shortly.
Is there anything I can do to make him more comfortable until I buy him his new food? (My mother just bought him a bag of Alpo, since I'd like to change his food it's up to me to buy the new one, but she'd like to finish this bag first)
Also, do you think that this could be something else? Yes, he's my dog and he comes to the barn with me every time I go. He's exposed to lots of animals, but no changes in the past 3 years. He's not very dirty either, he does get brushed after our barn trips if he rolls in the mud though.
