My cat has suddenly developed dandruff. What could be going on?

22 Mar

 

 

If kitties could talk, what would they say? “More pets on the belly, please!” Or maybe: “Bring on the catnip!”

 

All kidding aside, if felines did speak our language, it would certainly help us out when it comes to their health care. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t read their needs from physical cues.

 

Dandruff can be related to many things, including low humidity and not enough fatty acids in the feline’s diet. Older cats sometimes develop “dry skin” normally as they age. There’s also a contagious “walking dandruff” mite called Cheyletiella.
