My cat has White flakes of skin on her coat. It is near the base of her tail. She has lots of dandruff and I thought it might be due to dry skin. She isn't stressed (she loves it here and has had no changes at all) and isn't over weight. She weighs 11 pounds. She is 8 years old and eats science diet adult. She has ALWAYS been a year-around shedder. The dandruff is only on the base of her tail and middle back area. I do brush her to help with the shedding with a shedding blade. She can reach it, because I have seen her groom herself and she isn't that lazy. She likes being pet, but not to the point where she demands it. I was thinking about just giving her an oil supplement, but I wasn't sure which one. The cod liver was mentioned but will it help with dry skin? She isn't itchy and doesn't seem to notice it. I think I've answered all the questions. So, 8 yrs old, not overweight, eats science diet, isn't itchy, isn't stressed, is not a stray, gets brushed(blade), isn't lazy, I think that's it. If you have any ideas I'd like to know. Thanks!
