@angustia:  Oh my gosh, really? That’s awesome! Do you know if that works on cats too?

@angustia:  Hmm, that’s really interesting! I’ll do some research on it, but that sounds like a great tip! 🙂 My cat has pretty bad dandruff and I’d love to get rid of it!

Olive oil in a pet’s food will often clear up dry flaky skin, but it’s not going to clear up true dandruff.   True dandruff is caused by a fungal infection or rather an imbalance of the fungus that lives on each of us normally, and needs to be treated with a fungicide.  If your pet has dry flaky skin that isn’t diagnosed as dandruff, a little olive oil or a raw egg can definitely help, but if your pet has been diagnosed with actual dandruff, stick to the dandruff medication/shampoos.
