My 15 yr old male Maine Coon is exhibiting a rough, red, itchy spot on both sides of the spine, right before the tail. He has flakes of dandruff on the tail. My vet is doing bloodwork-any ideas? Thanks

Dear Hillary,

In Chinese medicine dandruff is a sign of heat and inflammation. The endocrine system could be disrupted or worsening of internal organs such as kidneys, and sometimes there can be parasites that are gaining a foothold as the immune system weakens. If kidneys are becoming more compromised I would try Dia-IoX, Probiotics for Cats and Dogs, and Omega 3,6,9.

Please let us know what you find out.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
