    DefaultDoggie Dander

    I thought I already posted this but here is another try...

    Charlie has a lot of dander. We live in Southeastern PA, it is winter, the gas heat is on all the time. I saw him shake and a cloud of dander came off of him. Is this normal or should I be concerned about dry skin?

    Thanks in advance!

    he likely has dry skin. You can try and have a humidifier going to help...and some people will tell you to add sardines, or oil, and all of that jazz...and you can if you want...but it really only adds extra fat/calories to your dog's diet. The skin is always an issue in the winter around here too.
