How often should I bathe my dog under these conditions (see below)?


My adult black Lab gets a bath about once a month, more often if she gets into something dirty or stinky. The problem is, she has very dry skin and sheds a lot. I use shampoo for dry skin and shedding (I've tried several brands), all with no luck. My vet just offerred a prescription shampoo that worked the same as the over-the-counter kind: no difference. I brush her every day or every other day with a Furminator which seems to catch a lot of hair, but yet she sheds and has visible dandruff on her beautiful black coat. Help?
