Do they make a dandruff shampoo for dogs?

During this cold weather my little guy gets dandruff. I don't over bathe him, only twice a month with an oatmeal shampoo. I also give him the omega 3 supplements daily. Any suggestions? BTW, he is a bichon shih tzu mix.

    twice a month during the winter seems a bit much...try cutting back to a monthly bath and add conditioner. Also, try adding flax seed oil to his diet. Brush him regulary to stimulate oil production in his skin. Make sure he is on a super premium brand of dog food, not the foods you find in the grocery.

    He probably gets in because of the dry air inside the house (if you keep your dog inside a lot) Maybe get a humidifier not only good for your dog's skin but yours as well.

    I'm sorry I don't know about pet dandruff shampoo but I'm sure there will be something on the market. Why not ask your vet or groomer.

    Try a deep hydrating conditioner when your dog. My dog has the same prob but I can only give her a bath once every two months cause of her skin. Try only giving your dog a bath once a month sometimes 2 times a month can be to much.
