How To Get Rid Of Dandruff On Cats
Cats have some of the most sensitive skin out of the entire animal kingdom. There is a reason why felines have so many different problems with dandruff. It is almost as difficult to get rid of dandruff on dogs as it is on cats. There is a very special treatment that you need to use in order to remove the dandruff. It all starts with a little bit of lifestyle changes and a couple of easy to use home remedies. Before we get started I suggest a visit to your local vet to get a proper diagnosis.It is very possible that your feline could possibly not have dandruff and just dry skin. Knowing the difference is difficult which is why you need a diagnosis from a vet or doctor.
Three Steps To Removing Dandruff On Cat’s
A vet might tell you to make a drastic change in shampoo and bathing habits. As much as cats hate water and taking baths. If you want to remove the dandruff properly you are going to need to start bathing them more often. It is also a great idea to change the shampoo that you are using on your cats and dogs. In recent studies almost 90 percent of causes of cat dandruff are caused by shampoo. Sometimes the companies do not care that this happens and they still continue to sell the shampoo which is disgusting if you ask me. Once you do this, you should wait a week and if you see no improvement you should think about more home remedies for dandruff.
The next step is trying out a couple of different home remedies. There are quite a few of them so be sure to have your pen and paper out ready to learn. I like to start out by saying that oregano oil and tea tree oil are amazing. I found them at a herbal shop near my house and I just adore them both. Both tea tree oil and oregano oil work well for cat and dog dandruff. About 10 drops on the skin and hair should do the trick. If you do not like these remedies you can also try coconut oil for dandruff. We all love coconut oil as a substitute for vegetable oil or even olive oil. But at the end of the day, coconut oil is an excellent natural remedy. When using it on cats it can be difficult because cats are quite squirmy while taking baths. All you need to do is rub it on their skin along with the shampoo. However, this is much easier said than done.
After all of this is over and you still have not gotten rid of the dandruff. You might want to talk to a vet about getting a special medication for your cats. Its the same as when dogs have dandruff, it can always be treated with medication. If none of this works and you still have no idea what to do. Just message me and I will try and help you out as best as I can. I have no guarantees that I will fix your problem.
