I've noticed my older cat has started to experience signs of dandruff - especially near the base of her tail.
While this does raise some concern, my research has shown that cats generally do get dandruff as they get older. This combined with the dry winter air leads me to believe this is most likely not a health issue.
However, I don't notice the same dandruff buildup on our other cat (who admittedly has longer fur which may be the cause), so I am wondering if my other cat, being older, is simply more vulnerable to dandruff.
My older cat turned 9 in December - is this the age at which cats getting older may experience more dandruff? And if not, when do older cats tend to experience dandruff problems?
