I gave her a bath in shampoo I had used before (she had had a rare "spa" shampoo a couple weeks before so I thought they might have used something that caused it) but it didn't go away. Now that we've been in the camper 3 weeks, with no exaggeration, it looks like she has snow on her. My other dog has some flakes too but I'm wondering if he's just picking up what is dropping off her. Her skin looks normal.
So I've heard some people are sensitive to stuff (is it formaldehyde?) in new campers and have to air it out a lot. I haven't smelled anything but I'm just wondering if anyone else has had something like this happen with a pet in a new unit?
I had sorta the same problem as our toilet doubled as the dogs water bowl, I figured he was getting dandruff from drinking the trailer water as every time he came in white stuff was all over him.. Then one day as I was dumping the neighbors bbq that I use when he goes in for the night I noticed him rolling in the white ashes... Long story short.. Watch him when he goes outside and don't dump your neighbors ashes close to your trailer.. Cheers.
