I would use a good coal/tar shampoo and rinse,rinse,rinse. A lot of times its not getting out all the shampoo that can cause this. If that doesn't work have the vet check and be sure its just ordinary dandruff and not a type of mite or something else going on.
Dandruff is easy to get rid of if it's caused by dry skin, all you have to do is put a flax seed oil capsule or a teaspoon of flax seed oil in your dog's food every day. You will be amazed at the difference in your dog's coat.
yeah my dog is a lab mix and smells lol ive taken her to the vet she a had a severe skin allergy when she was about six months to a year and people wpuld shout at me in the street. It kind of resembeled mange but the vet tested her n said it was a bad allergic reaction n dandruff just seems to be the thing shes got after all her fur has come bak.
Shadow had dandruff too. She is a Lab pit mix. I use a specail soap bar shampoo. It smells really good sort of like fresh lemons. It is used for dry skin. I bought it at Jake's dog house if your interested. I use it twice a month. She nevers has dandruff anymore.
I buy the flaxseed oil capsules at Walmart in the vitamin aisle. I buy 100 for less than 10.00. They have been great for both Rusty and Bailey. Bailey has always had dry itchy skin and she would scratch until her fur fell out. I never have this problem anymore. I just throw a capsule in her bowl with her food in the morning and two for Rusty because of his size. He never had any skin problems but it makes his coat look healthier. This has been one the best things I learned on this forum. It was driving me nuts watching her scratch all her fur off, she would even scratch on the fireplace, the fence, any and everywhere she could, and she would howl while she was doing it. It was really kind of fuuny, but drove you crazy after a few. Since I have been giving her the flaxseed for several months now she has not done this once and she doesn't smell as bad either. She does still have a very dog smell to her, but because of her skin and allergies I don't use perfumed shampoo or anything like that. Give it a shot, it works great, and if it doesn't work for you then you haven't lost much.
i am a dog groomer. most dogs i see with what the owner calls "dandruff" it is really just product bluildup on the fur and skin..find a groomer who uses product with no wax, silcone,sls and oil in the shampoo and conditioner. this stuff builds on the coat and the skin and fur can't breath and repel like its suppost to do. the dog smells , dust and dirt stick to it and the undercoat can't fall out , the dog smell doggie because the skin sweats and begins to flaky bad cycle of yuk starts in. most dogs i do come and get a shampoo and 2 weeks later i do again and most of the yuk is gone by then...owners say their labs don't stink anymore [labs have a oil on their coats why add more to it]
