How To Help With Your Pet’s Shedding

How To Help With Your Pet’s Shedding

Shedding is natural and a way for dogs and cats to renew their fur, but loose fur can be messy and not fun for pet owners. Pets need thicker coats for winter, here are a few tips for pet owners to help control their pet’s shedding.

Good Nutrition and Skin Care

A high quality balanced diet rich in protein and omegas will keep your pet’s fur shiny and healthy. Ultra Oil is full of omegas 3, 6, and 9. The hempseed, sardine and anchovies, grape-seed, and flaxseed will provide nourishment for their cells and improve skin and coat conditions. If pet’s are itching and scratching they will pull more fur out and cause more shedding. If your pet shows signs of irregular, excessive shedding, such as losing clumps of fur, developing bald patches, or showing skin rashes or sores, Ultra Oil can help even the most severe issues, but it is important to contact your vet. Maintaining healthy skin condition is essential for good skin care and less shedding.

Brushing and Regular Baths

Daily brushing removes loose, broken or damaged hair and distribute the oils in your pet’s coat. When shedding is worse brush more often, and use the proper type of brush for your pets coat length. It is recommended to bathe your dog at least once a month to remove dirt, debris, and damaged fur from extra shedding. Use pet friendly shampoos and conditioner. 

Hydration

If a pet is dehydrated their fur will be more brittle and be prone to break off. Always provide fresh drinking water for cats and dogs, and add wet food to their diet to increase hydration.  And obviously plenty of water in their bowl. 

Shedding is a natural part of a pets life, it can be minimized and maintained.
