Unfortunately, dog shedding is a common problem for virtually all breeds, whether they have short or long hair. Of course, breeds with finer, softer hair may shed even worse. Either way, when dog shedding happens, you could be putting yourself and your family at greater risk for allegories and other breathing problems. Also, when it comes to aesthetics, excessive dog fur doesn’t look right on your carpet or furniture.

    • Wash your dog. Before you can stop dog shedding, you must make sure that your animal is properly groomed. This process begins by thoroughly washing both their fur and skin. To do this, you need to first get a dog washing shower attachment. These attachments cost between $20 and $100, but they make bathing a lot easier. You won’t get water all over the place plus there won’t be any shampoo left behind in the dog’s skin.

      Make sure you only use dog shampoo and conditioner on your pet’s skin. Human shampoos may not contain the necessary ingredients to optimize the health of your dog’s skin and fur. And, if your dog has a dandruff problem, use dog shampoos that help treat dry skin.

    • Comb and brush your dog’s fur. Use dog shedding combs and brushes to remove the top layers of fur. You will want to make a habit of doing this every day, especially in the morning.

    • Use a vacuum dog brush. The techniques mentioned above do not help as much when it comes to removing a dog’s undercoat. That’s why you will want to consider an additional regime: sucking out some of the undercoat with a vacuum dog brush. These attachments are readily available at any pet store, and they’re easy to use. Just place them at the end of a vacuuming hose, and you’ll be ready for business.

    • Add a tablespoon of olive oil to your dog’s food. Olive oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are nutrients that are essential for your dog’s skin and fur. And, since olive oil is virtually tasteless, you won’t have to worry about the dog rejecting its food after it’s been added.

    • Give your pet dog vitamins. If a dog is malnourished, it is more likely to shed because it’s not receiving enough nutrients to maintain the health of its fur. And, due to the fact that many brands of dog food do not contain enough protein, you will want to give them vitamins regardless of how much they eat.

    • Schedule an appointment with your vet. Sometimes dog shedding is caused by a more serious health problem. So, if you plan on stopping the shedding, you will have to get a physical examination for your dog.
