My Pet is Shedding Everywhere!

canine healthy coats Dogs and cats shed, this is a fact of life. As the summer weather draws nearer, your pet will shed even more than usual so they can get rid of their heavy winter coat. While shedding can be a major pain in the you know what, it is important for pets so they don’t overheat in the summer. Nevertheless, there are some preventative steps a pet owner can take to reduce the inconvenience associated with shedding.

First of all, there are some commercial shedding products that reduce the amount your dog or cat sheds. Shedding supplements keep your pet comfortable while also preventing hair from building up around your house. Moreover, these commercial shedding supplements improve the quality and condition of your pet’s skin and coat without interrupting natural seasonal shedding.

Hairy DogIn addition to shedding supplements, grooming is an important aspect of controlling shedding. Especially for cats and dogs with long hair, you need to brush them at least once a week. During the late spring you may even want to brush more to remove hair as it sheds rather than letting the hair disperse over your carpets, furniture, and upholstery. Certain shedding tools were designed specifically to collect your pet’s hair when you brush but there are also shedding tools that are designed to remove hair from furniture and carpets.

Finally, regular maintenance around the house can help you to keep shedding under control. Vacuum and sweep more regularly during shedding season so the problem doesn’t get out of control. Also, upholstery covers can protect your furniture and they make it easier to clean up after a pet that is shedding.

Remember, shedding is a natural part of your pet’s life. When the weather becomes colder they actually grow a fuller coat to protect them from harsh winters but as summer comes around this coat is no longer needed and shedding results!
