How do i stop my dog from shedding hair everywhere?

how to stop animals from shedding hair

Report as

The simple answer is "don't let it go everywhere". Except for a few dog breeds (e.g. poodles), dogs shed. Their fur grows longer in the winter to help them stay warm with the cooler temperatures and sheds in the spring and summer as the temperatures warm up. I suppose you could try to fool the dog's fur response by keeping it in a constant temperature, but there may be some extenuating circumstances such as daylight differences. In other words, you can't stop the dog from shedding, you can only lessen the situation by grooming.

Wash your dog, comb and brush it's fur. Use a vacuum dog brush that is readily available at any pet store. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to your dog's food. Give your pet dog vitamins. Read more from http://www.ehow.com/how_4674614_stop-dog-shedding.html#ixzz1ssogdHMe.

there is no real way to prevent a dog from shedding. to control the hair, try brushing regularly and consider a hair cut

Your pet must be diligent in washing your hair every three days with a shampoo specially, http://hypoallergenicmakeup.us

Over washing will dry your dog's skin and make it shed more. Brush often and consider a hair cut. I found regular grooming to be the best solution

That's right. There is no reason a dog needs a bath every three days unless it has a serious skin condition for which your vet has prescribed medicated shampoo and a specific bath regimen.

I have a Lab Mix that sheds a lot of hair, we give him Fish oil capsules. He still sheds, when we brush him very little hair is in the brush. So, that's not an easy solution.

Guess what - you don't! If a dog has a shedding coat, that will not stop. But the mess can be decreased by keeping his coat clean and brushed. The breed will determine how often and how much. We have a Golden and we brush her every day. In the spring we get her groomed and cut short so that she looks like a Lab when she comes home. The hair that she sheds is shorter in spring/summer, but she still sheds. Also know several people who give their dog one fish oil tablet per day and have noticed a decrease in shedding. Doesn't seem to have any effect on our dog but it may on yours - worth a try.

Dogs shed. Simple as that. Don't wash it so often, that takes the natural oils out of it's fur. Once or twice a year is o.k. Give it an egg once in a while mixed in it's food and maybe some vegetable oil, like a tablespoon a week mixed in too, to keep the fur healthy. There is a product called the Furminater - you can get a knock-off at the drug store - that works really well. It looks like a flea comb and you won't think it will work, but it does! On cats and dogs. Comb your dog gently. like you would use a brush, and outside, because a lot of fur comes out. Leave the fur in a bowl or something for the birds to use in their nests. But, combing and/or brushing is the only thing that will work. Your dog puts up with a lot of your stuff, you can put up with this:) It's not a big thing if you keep brushing. Besides, it makes the dog love you more, if that's possible! And, you will love the dog too and it gives you together time. We all put up with someone or somethings oddities because we love them.

Excellent summary, and great advice, Wrex! Grooming time is together time, and if you are relaxed and gentle with your dog, your dog will come to enjoy the time with you, too.

I would not give my dog fish oil every day, as several people have said above. I have never heard a vet say to do this, and I would be concerned about upsetting my dog's stomach and giving her heartburn. Heartburn is a horrible thing to have to live with, and we should not do ANYTHING that could cause this in our dogs.

All dogs can 'change their metabolism by living with the human being in the house, sometimes their immune system is lowered and then strange phenomena occur , like the excessive loss of hair at any time of year.
There are dogs that are on the whole body bald. It is not recommended Crearms etc..
With a natural diet can 'riaquistare the hair and losing very little in 20-30 days
