Seven ways for dogs to remove dandruff easily.
Dandruff is not only caused by humans, but even more by dogs. Why is this? In fact, under normal metabolism, epidermal cells will continue to grow, age, die and fall off. It’s just that dogs have more hair than humans, and this situation is more likely to occur. In addition, infection with parasites, allergic reactions, or skin inflammation can also increase dander.
Take a shower: Take a good shower for your dog to get rid of the old dandruff that has accumulated on the skin. You don’t need to take a bath too aggressively. Basically, you wash it every two weeks in summer and once a month in winter. Be careful, bathing too frequently may damage the oily protective layer on your dog’s hair.
Use lukewarm water when bathing
Take care to avoid eyes
Finally, remember to blow dry the dog’s damp hair
Dedicated shampoo: If the general shampoo cannot effectively remove dandruff, then you should choose a special anti-dandruff shampoo containing a variety of special ingredients. Umi’s special shampoo for pet dandruff is good! Let the foam stay on the dog for a few minutes when bathing, so that the medicinal ingredients can be fully effective.
Never use human-use anti-dandruff shampoo to bathe your dog, so as not to cause greater irritation. When dogs have severe dandruff, it is best not to bathe them with lice-killing ingredients. The skin is drier.
Hair care spray: If the dog lives in a dry environment, it may also cause a lot of dandruff. You might as well buy some oily hair care spray at a pet store. After spraying on the hair, it can effectively avoid excessive evaporation of the water on the dog’s hair.
Moisturizing oil: Products generally used to maintain the skin of babies can also moisturize the fur of dogs.
Grooming: Grooming the dog regularly can brush off the old dandruff and dead hair that usually accumulates, and it can also help the dog distribute the natural oil secreted by the skin on every inch of skin. As long as the dog is combed frequently, a lot of skin will fall off. The problem of crumbs can be solved naturally.
When choosing a comb, pay attention to whether the comb teeth are too hard. You can try it with the back of your hand. If you feel pain, then the dog may feel the same. In fact, the tooth comb that people use to comb their hair is very suitable for dogs. Furthermore, you can also choose a special pet grooming comb.
Add some oil: One reason for the increase in dandruff may also be insufficient oil in the food. So it is a good idea to add an appropriate amount of pet-specific fish oil to things, which can help the skin restore normal metabolic functions. As long as you add half a spoon or a teaspoon of fish oil every day, you can clearly see the improvement effect.
Changing the feed: Some poor-quality feeds cannot meet the dog’s nutritional needs and will lead to poor hair health. After many dogs switch to another more professional feed, the dandruff problem will naturally heal.
