• I brushed my cat today and noticed that she has a considerable amount of dandruff. Is this something I need to be concerned about? Do I need to bathe her, or just keep up with regular brushing to maintain the natural oils?

    Hi Marissa,
    Increased dandruff can be common in winter with dry skin also brushing your pet or stress can cause dandruff. I recommend having your cat examined by your veterinarian to help determine the cause of the dandruff and that will determine the best treatment.
