Dandruff

Squeakers is a tuxedo cat, and I've been noticing that she is having a bit of a dandruff problem. She eats Natural Choice Indoor formula dry food, with 2 spoons of Natural Choice wet food every day. Other than that, she seems to be a pretty healthy and happy kitty (although I think I may switch to weight management since she's getting a little chubby!)
What causes dandruff, should I be concerned?

Do a search on this forum there was a recent thread in one of the other catagories that suggested "Missing Link"(I think) treats and some other stuff.

For my cat, it was corn, lack of fat, and dry food that caused dandruff. It's also the dry skin season. I'd avoid the weight-loss foods (not enough fat, and may make dandruff worse) and try reducing the dry food and adding more canned to see if that helps first. I can't even tell you the difference in my cat's coat and skin after going to all-canned. I have a friend who has one cat that was a compulsive groomer (to the point of huge bald spots), and his problems completely went away after a diet switch to inexpensive canned and Wellness dry (his vet is completely amazed by the difference, they'd all assumed that he was a head case...as it turned out, he was just itchy, poor guy).
