    DefaultChunks of dandruff on my labs back

    Hi,
    I seem to have this issue every winter, my old boy will get chunks of dandruff on his back, the chunks are big, and when I remove them some of the hair will come off leaving a red and bleeding bald spot. I groom him up to three times a week, but I think the brushing makes it worse, I will then give if a medicated bath, most of the time it will clear up right away, and sometimes not,

    I am looking for any suggestions on preventing this from happening in the first place.

    That does not sound like dandruff to me. Have you seen a vet, preferably a canine dermatologist?

    Agree that is not dandruff. You need to see a canine dermatologist if your regular vet can't help you get rid of this.

    No, it doesn't sound like dandruff. But if it was, a common problem in winter is overheated and too dry houses leading to dry skin. It wouldn't hurt to check out that angle with a hygrometer, if you are in a cold winter area.
