In this article, we will be taking a look at what we feel are the best greyhound dandruff treatments currently available on the market right now. With dandruff being a relatively common issue with dogs, it is no surprise we see so many people reaching out for assistance with their dogs.
We have researched the various anti-dandruff products on the market for dogs and settled on five that we feel are the best. We have tried to choose a wide range of products to give you options starting to chewable suppliments and moving through to various sprays or shampoos. Our hope is that one of these products will suit your needs and help to treat your greyhound’s dandruff problem.
Amazing Nutritionals Chew-ables
Rather than being some type of external topical treatment like the other treatments on this list, this is a fully ingestible treatment that helps treat your dog’s dandruff by improving your dog’s diet. It ensures that your greyhound is getting the essential fatty acids required for a healthy skin and coat and stops dandruff quickly.
Although Amazing Nutritionals Chew-ables are able to treat your dog’s dandruff without any additional treatments, some dog owners do choose to supplement the treatment with one of the other external treatments on the list. Although this may help to get your dog quicker and better results, we were able to find any reputable studies to prove that this is definitely the case and worth your time and money.
The image below shows the full nutritional breakdown of Amazing Nutritionals Chew-ables to show exactly what your dog is getting when you choose to supplement its diet. As you can see, there is plenty of omegas three, six, and nine to help improve the health of your dog’s skin and thus prevent dandruff.
One thing that we would like to mention though is if you choose to use Amazing Nutritionals Chew-ables to treat the dandruff in your greyhound and your dog has been itching its skin you can use a product like Bodhi Dog Anti Itch Oatmeal Spray to help with the itching. As this also helps with dandruff you can end up getting the bed of both worlds while also easing your dogs urge to itch as well as helping to heal and scabs or scratches from your greyhound itching its skin.
At the time of writing, Amazing Nutritionals Chew-ables offer you an additional sixty free tablets when ordering a bottle of one hundred and twenty tablets giving you one hundred and eighty tablets total. As this offer has been running for years now, we don’t see it ending any time soon but it could be something to take advantage of.
In addition to helping to deal with any dandruff problems in your greyhound, Amazing Nutritionals Chew-ables also help to keep your greyhound’s bones, joints, and brain health healthy and optimal. Finally, we would just like to confirm that a portion of each batch of Amazing Nutritionals Chew-ables are tested by a third-party company to ensure purity prior to shipping to ensure that you and your greyhound are getting the highest possible quality supplement.
Bodhi Dog Anti Itch Oatmeal Spray
Rather than being an ingestive supplement like the Amazing Nutritionals Chew-ables above, Bodhi Dog Anti Itch Oatmeal Spray is a topical spray that you apply directly to your greyhound’s skin and coat. The oatmeal and various plan extracts help to moisturize your dog’s skin minimizing any dandruff breakouts.
As we mentioned above, this will pair well with Amazing Nutritionals Chew-ables if your greyhound keeps Itching or has broken its skin and now has scabs. The oatmeal and essential vitamins help to ease any pain or itching sensations on your dog’s skin helping it to heal quicker.
The image below shows the various ingredients in Bodhi Dog Anti Itch Oatmeal Spray so you can see exactly what you are applying to your dog’s skin and your coat.

The slight apple scent of the spray can help neutralize this scent making your greyhound smell pleasant again.
If your greyhound is also suffering from any hot spots, grass or pollen allergies, flea bits or scratches then Bodhi Dog Anti Itch Oatmeal Spray can help to ease any pain or itching sensations helping them heal quicker.
SynergyLabs Veterinary Formula
It is one of the most popular doggy shampoos on the market right now and is both fully Antiparasitic and Antiseborrheic helping to deal with any issues with scratches or scabs on your greyhound that it may have caused to itself while scratching.
Although you could combo this with the Amazing Nutritionals Chew-able suppliments covered first in the article, we feel that combining the Bodhi Dog Anti Itch Oatmeal Spray with it covered above would be more effective but neither are essential as any product can work fine solo.
We like to show our readers the content of any product that we recommend as we know how much people love their dogs. The image below shows the full ingredients list for SynergyLabs Veterinary Formula Clinical Care.

Although this can help your dogs coat, the main thing that we are looking to leverage to our advantage when treating dandruff in a dog is its moisturizing properties. These help your dog’s skin stay moist and let your dogs natural oils deal with dandruff.
All you have to do is put a small amount onto your hands, rub them together and then run your hands through your dog’s coat ensuring that you massage your dog’s skin to get the conditioner on to it too.

As this is a leave-in conditioner there is no need to rinse or wash your greyhound after application, just leave it to go about its business as it sees fit.
