Hair loss or shedding results from a number of causes. Unlike human beings, hair growth cycle is different in dogs. Photoperiod (light intensity) is main factor besides nutrition, genetics, health that can cause dog to shed hair excessively during some seasons and therefore, can be physiological. Dogs may also shed excessive hair because of stress, worms, harsh climate and general illness. Almost 30 percent of dietary protein as well nutrients like zinc and omega fatty acids are required for maintenance of skin and hair coat. Therefore feed your pet complete and balanced pet food.
