  • I would call the vet. How does an egg help dry skin? When my cat had dandruff we put a little oil in his food. It helped.

  • You can try some salmon oil, or fish oil capsules as well. has all sorts of supplements for skin and coat, you can check there too!

  • If you are going to use raw eggs I would try to get them from a small farm and organic if possible. Raw eggs from large factory farms are likely to have salmonella.

  • call the vet. i give mine hard boiled eggs for a treat, but don't know that it helps dry skin. i occasionaly use oil but it makes them go #2 faster so make sure it has a litter box handy. lol call a groomer, they can get stuff for that and maybe they would sell you some.
