Tea tree oil is drying, I'm not sure that would be the best for dry skin.


When Ilsa had dandruff.... the only thing that worked was Lipiderm. I know... Lipiderm. KVVET has it pretty cheap, all things considered.

Lipiderm is basically Omega 3/Fish oil supplement. Do you think it's significantly better than the Wellactin? I'm going to try the Wellactin first since I'll be able to get it for free soon, but I'm curious. If nothing else I also get a discount at KV Vet Supply with my IAADP membership.

I'm not sure, I've never used Wellactin. Lipiderm just seemed to work for some reason.

I'm sure people wouldn't appreciate a month's worth of dirt, oil, and dandruff falling off next to their groceries
I love you so much for that sentence. This is exactly how I feel about not bathing your dog (any dog) once a month or so. Ick.

I would say exfoliate with a zoom groom. Get some conditioner that works for him (or use your own stuff if you have it - I have an aloe vera based one by kiss my face that worked great on Middie) and just massage his coat with the zoom groom, digging down deep so it gets his skin. When Middie is a little dandruffy that helps to get the loose stuff off of his skin. I sometimes do a few drops of vitamin e and rub it in while his fur is wet. It absorbs really well and he doesn't feel gross the next day.

I use a zoom groom (or a regular rubber curry comb when I'm at home) every time he gets bathed. I'd never get him properly sudsy without it lol. This last tim I used Head and Shoulders damage repar conditioner for 5 minutes, then Hylyte cream rinse for 5 minutes. And he's flakier than ever

Yeah, exactly. My parents bathe their dog maybe once a year. Twice if he's lucky. Gross. You should have seen this one GSD "service dog" that came into the clinic before. She reeked as soon as she came in the door, was nearly naked...and she was just in for vaccines! He turned down all other treatment, and continued taking her out in public like that. Blergh.

Ugh. That sucks. Maybe just aloe vera? It works for sunburn. . . Maybe worth a try.

And that's gross. Some dogs do well with being bathed infrequently and don't smell, but even if they don't. . . come on people, they lay on the floor. They need baths.
