A healthy skin and coat is less likely to shed excessive hair. Unlike human beings, dog’s hair growth cycle is different. For example, hair does not grow continuously in dogs. Skin and hair growth is influenced by genetics, breed, hormonal influence, stresses, nutrition, illness and numerous environmental factors. Daily brushing works best because it helps to get rid of all of your dog’s loose hair. If you can’t brush her every day, aim for at least two good brushings per week. A balanced diet that is rich in omega fatty acids, minerals like zinc and digestible proteins will keep your dog’s coat strong and healthy, and will help decrease excessive shedding.
