Jack Russell dandruff

Jack Russell dandruff is an indication of flaky skin, and giving him regular baths will wash the flakes away before they accumulate on the body.

Give your dog two baths per month in the summer, and one bath per month in the winter.

Follow these steps when giving your Jack Russell a bath:

  • Use baby shampoo or a mild dog shampoo
  • Don't use shampoo that includes insecticides or anti-flea shampoo
  • Use warm water, but not too hot, or it'll dry out the dog's skin

Also, be sure to brush your dog regular, and make sure he has enough fat in his diet. Fat is essential in the diet for all mammals, including humans, and too little of it will make his skin dry out.
