Espree Pet Health Advisor

Shedding

Causes: Shedding is just a natural part of owning a dog. Light is the biggest contributor of the shedding cycle. Artificial light in a house can cause indoor dogs to shed more than outdoor dogs. Other factors which can affect shedding are illness, disease, hormonal changes, pregnancy, skin problems, bacterial infections and stress. Double coated dogs shed at least once a year. Short coated dogs shed in a mosaic pattern and can shed year round. When a dog is in a shedding cycle it is good to bathe, dry and brush the dog to remove the dead coat. This helps the skin to breathe. Removing the dead coat will help uncover hidden matting, hot spots and many other skin problems. See your veterinarian if you see excessive shedding, bald spots or symmetric hair loss.
