Dandruff?

Naruto is about 5-6 months old, he is a DLH kitty. He is solid black and you can see white things on his whole body.Kerbi, his sister is DSH tortoiseshell she doesn't have much white stuff on her fur more than Naruto. Some black schnauzers have dandruff too, is it because he is black? What is this white stuff? Dandruff or dust? Some look like dust and some look like flakes.

Its probably dry skin. My tuxy gets that. When I started putting
Missing Link in my cats food his coat became healthier
and the dandruff went away.

PetSmart has them on their website. You can find them on line if you google. Ive even seen it in a pet boutique in LaJolla! It has the essential Omega 3 oils in it which helps your cats coat.

I even heard the natural salmon oil spray with Omega 3 oils help your cats coat also.

The better the food, the less the dandruff. Bella is a living example. Make sure you are feeding your babies the best of the best when it comes to food.

Bella's dandruff does get a little worse in the winter. Probably dry skin due to the dry winter air and heat in the house. She clears up a little in the spring.

My boys always get dry skin this time of year. I give them each a halibut liver oil pill a day. It helps to clear up the flakes. But really, anything with Omega 3 fatty acids will help.

Oran loves to pop the capsules in his mouth when he takes his pill. Yuck !

It's really the cats' house, we just pay the rent.

One other point from a fellow black cat owner, the stuff definately shows up better on our kitties than cats other colors. Most cats have it to some extent, especially this time of year. But it really shows up on black cats.

I have noticed it more on Velvet this winter than ever before. She is going to be twelve years old in May, perhaps drier skin due to her age?
