• I find loose dandruff on top of my cat's fur sometimes. Is this normal, or is it unhealthy?

    Hi Sarah,
    I recommend that you take your cat into see a veterinarian. Dandruff is not normal in cats and this can be a sign of an underlying skin or metabolic issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the dandruff and the treatment needed after they have examined your pet.
