Try using oatmeal shampoo on the dog. It's only about four dollars at places like walmart and seems to work great. Give the dog a bath about every 2 weeks or so, and make sure the soap is completely rinsed out. (if you leave any soap in, it irritates their skin, and they continue to scratch.)After the dog is mostly dry, get a plastic fine toothed comb (as you would use on a human) and brush them out with it. (combs get closer to the skin than pet brushes do.)and yes, it is normal. It seem it is especially common in Doberman breeds. If the dog doesn't have a good high quality dog food, you may want to switch to a better food. Also, if you put about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in the dry dog food, it makes their skin and coat appear healthier, and mimimizes the flakes. Give the results about a week to take effect. If these things do not work, please seek a vet for other suggestions.

If it's very bad, he might have a skin infection. You should take him to a vet, and get it checked out! :) - The Panda

Put some listerine mouthwash over the spot, then rinse it out.

If that doesn't work or if it's all over his body, take him to the vet.

Go to the pet store and buy the special shampoo. If that doesn't help, take the dog to the vet and he can give you a perscription. Hope I helped@

Try caling the groomer at petsmart or petco to ask them what kind of product is best for your god BREED. it all depends on the breed. It is normal for some big dogs, and a few small dogs, but again it depends on the dog.


sorry i cant help more

It's normal. It's winter, and you're dog just has dry skin. Try taking it to the vet, and they can get your dog a prescription.
Hope I helped!

Karen answered Tuesday March 1 2005, 12:00 pm:
Yes, it's normal for your dog to have winter. Since it's winter, it's normal for your dog to have dandruff because her or his skin is just dry. You can actually use shampoos/conditioners for people who have dandruff. I suggest that you should try using Head and Shoulders because it does work, my friend used it on her dog. If that doesn't work, try going to a vet and get a prescribed product.

You can actually use Head and Shoulders on your dog. The same thing happens with my two Shih-Tzus so we just Head and Shoulders on them. It's actually perfectly safe to use regular shampoo on dogs only you need to avoid getting it near their eyes because it will hurt their eyes like any other shampoo would. Try using that and even conditioner and massage it onto it's body. If you live in a cold area, ie: New Jersey, PA, New York, etc. it will dry out their skin. Try that and if doesn't work, I'd suggest taking him to the doctor. Hope this helped.
