In this blog post, I will go through everything you should know as a cat owner about dandruff in kitties. 

Let's start. 

Is it common? 

Cat dandruff is quite common and can be found on the back in the area that's closer to the tail tan to the back. Sometimes, dandruff is accompanied by greasy fur as well. 

It is important to note that most of the time, even if your cat has severe dandruff, it doesn't indicate that your cat has a disease. 

What can you do to combat cat dandruff? 

Just to be sure that there isn't anything funky going on with your furry friend, it is a good idea to take her to the vet so that they can do the appropriate tests to rule out serious problems.

Dandruff in cats is hard to treat.

While dietary supplements such as Omega-3 fatty acid does help, special spot treatments and shampoos seem to do the trick as well.

Dandruff in cats is just an annoying problem that's hard to treat. That being said, it's often harmless and you can try various treatments to get it under control.
