Sinatra's Dander- Is it the time of year?

851 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Sinatra-Butters
I have been brushing Sinatra almost daily and it seems he still has awful dander around the base of his tail. Anyone know what I can do about this? Is he not cleaning there? Or is it just because he is shedding his winter coat? He eats good grain free food, so I don't think it is the food.

Nutmeg's coat seems fine. She needs to be brushed more (she hates it so it is hard) but other than that she is silky smooth and dander free.

Sounds like stud tail. Its caused by an overproduction of oil in the glands in that area (base of the tail).
I looked that up and he doesn't have any of the symptoms listed except for dander.
