How to Reduce Pet Shedding

The love that we have for our pets is undeniably unconditional. However, if there is one thing that's not to love, it is the shedding. While there are breeds of dogs that are non shedding and/ or hypoallergenic, there are ways to manage the amount of shedding in dogs and cats that are not non shedding breeds. 

Frequent Brushing to Reduce Pet Shedding

Brushing your pets every day can help to prevent broken and loose hair from falling later. It also prepares the coat for healthy growth which reduces the chance of developing mats and future skin issues. There are many benefits to frequent brushing, these benefits include; stimulation of oxygen-rich blood to feed and nourish the skin's surface, detoxification, and helping to remove toxins along with other unhealthy debris. By regularly brushing your pet, you are helping them rid of dead skin cells and excess hair which in time will help to reduce your pet’s overall shedding, leaving your pet’s coat healthy and shining! 

Reduce Shedding Through Nutrition

Try to avoid pet foods high in filler ingredients, such as corn and grains. Instead consider pet foods that list meat as one of the top ingredients. While high quality pet foods may cost more, they may be easier for pets to digest as corn and grain can be difficult. The nutrients in meat-rich dog foods are more easily digested and absorbed, which can promote better overall health and helps control shedding and dry skin! Dogs and cats who suffer from food allergies are particularly prone to diet-related shedding. You may need to experiment with different foods before you find one that's right for your pet. Consider consulting your veterinarian for advice and recommendations.

     Use Hydrating Pet Shampoos to Reduce Shedding

    Pet shampoos with harsh ingredients can cause dry skin and fur- dry fur breaks more easily which can leave you finding more pet hair around the house! Using soothing and hydrating pet shampoos can help your pet's coat look and feel healthy!
