Tips To Reduce Heavy Shedding In Dogs

Pet owners can easily be overwhelmed by lots of shed hairs especially during the shedding season. Dogs tend to shed off a lot of hair at least twice a year-- after winter and before winter. This is the body’s way of dealing with adverse weather. After winter, dogs shed off their heavy winter coat so a lighter coat can grow in for the hot summer months. Before winter sets in, as the weather starts to turn colder, they shed off their summer coat so a heavy winter coat can grown in. Some breeds of dogs are also heavy shedders, and if you own one you can do well with these tips:

Grooming tools

The right grooming tools can help reduce shed hairs around your home. But be sure you know how to use each type of grooming tool. You don’t need to buy all of them, just know what types of grooming tools work well for your pet’s hair coat. 

Supplements

One of the most popular supplements that is excellent in maintaining skin and hair health are essential fatty acids. These are rich in omega-3 and omega-6. 

Shedding can also be caused by an underlying health issue, thus if you notice your pet suddenly shedding a lot of hair outside the usual shedding season, you should talk to your veterinarian Metairie, LA about it.
