Q. what kind of hand cream can I put on my dog for dandruff?
DR. ANDREA M. BRODIE, DVM
A. Dandruff can be caused by greasy skin as well as dry skin. Hand creams for humans are made for the skin of humans, not dog. A dog has a different pH from a human's skin and also cannot handle certain chemicals in hand creams. You should take her to a vet for a skin exam which determines which type of dandruff your dog has and why and then your vet will recommend certain shampoos, or possibly also types of food and supplements to battle the dandruff.
