The problem of shedding

Saturday, February 25, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Your furry friend who sheds a lot is a source of frustration. Daily or even twice daily brushing is often the best solution.  You choose where the fur goes and while brushing, helpful, moisturizing oils are distributed through the coat. Keeping your pets skin moist is also important.  Use a humidifier, give regular baths with a gentle shampoo and make sure that your pets diet has enough omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids from fish.  Keep in mind that shedding is a normal and necessary process but there are also numerous medical conditions with excessive shedding as a symptom. Be sure to consult your veterinarian if you suspect an underlying health problem.

Remember, your pets count.
