Symptoms & types

If your feline friend has cat dandruff, it's best to take them to the vet.

Understanding the diagnostics

Symptoms might include itching, bald spots, red or sore areas of skin, or excessive grooming.

Learning About The Causes

If your kitty doesn't groom themselves well or has long, matt-prone fur, they'll need regular brushing to prevent dandruff build-up.

Cat food that is low in fatty acids could make your cat prone to flaky, scurfy skin. Equally, if your cat has a food allergy or any other allergy, you might notice dandruff.

Best Treatment Options

To effectively treat or manage your cat’s dandruff, you first need an idea of what's causing it.
