Dandruff

I have a 10 wk old black puppy and I've noticed he has flakes like dandruff. I have him a bath with puppy shampoo and still has flakes. What can I do? Should I change food or what? Thanks

How often do you bathe? Cain had those when he was younger but he had to stay with our groomer for a while ad she over bathed him. Now he gets one once a month and I haven't had the dandruff come up.

I noticed with Odin when he was on the crappy food before I switched him to Acana his skin was really dry and flaky and if I waited too long to give him a bath then his fur would get super oily. Now that he's on better food I don't have either problem. What are u feeding? Perhaps switching to a grain free or better quality food would be helpful.

I used to be a groomer and if you don't throughly rinse the shampoo, the flakes will happen. And like the others said, he probably needs to be on a better food.

**the bully breeds are not large breed dogs, regular puppy food is what they need, definitely not large breed

Yeah I would add fish oil to kibbles and maybe bath him in oatmeal not a shampoo. Def not large breed and maybe think about swapping to a grain free food. IF there is an allergy it might be the start.

yeah what Coach said! these breeds are not considered large breed. and science diet is prolly one of the worst foods out there. they just got a permit to put plastic in their kibble! dogs dont need plastic for their nutrition, hell they dont need corn either and thats the main ingredient in science diet.

id bet money thats whats dryin out ur pups skin. heres a thread to get u started Pet Food Rating + Comparison Chart

oh yeah for sure! large breed is like mastiff, dane, rott, maybe even lab. pit bulls should average between 40-65 pounds and dont have the bone structure of the large breeds. and dont get confused with the 100+ "pit bull" wanna bes that usually have some mastiff blood in them.

Vets are typically not animal nutritionists. We like to believe that they know everything about our pet's well being but really it's like general practice for dogs - few are actual specialists. Plus they make their money by treating ailments and sad to say, the better the food, the healthier the dog which means the less money vets will make. In addition, Science Diet pays vets to promote their feed which is why you always see the Science Diet swag covering most surfaces in a vet's office.
