• How can I decrease the amount of pet dander on my dog? He does not scratch excessively.

    I recommend that you take your dog to see your veterinarian. There can be many different causes for excessive dander in dogs including allergies, food allergies, infection, mites, fleas, or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of his excessive dander after they have examined him. The treatment that will work best will depend on the underlying cause of his symptoms.
