Why dogs and cats shed excessively

There are many reasons why dogs and cats shed. The most obvious being the race of course. However, other factors matter as well. If your pet is not well and it is under stress, please read this article. Poor nutrition, supplements (not all of them are bad) and allergies can also be a problem. If your pet is (potentially) experiencing one of the following problems, please consult a vet:

  • Parasites (fleas, lice or mites)
  • Fungal or bacterial infections
  • Inhalant or food-related allergies
  • Kidney, liver, thyroid or adrenal disease (including Cushing’s)
  • Pregnancy or lactation
  • Certain medications
  • Self-induced trauma due to licking
  • Cancer
  • Immune disease
  • Sunburn
  • Contact with irritating or caustic substances


How to stop a dog shedding?

Supplements are always a good idea if you choose the right ones. Like in people, a bad omega 6 omega 3 ratio could be bad for your pet. Vitamins A, E and D are also a solid bet. A good supplement against dog shedding with a comprehensive list of ingredients can be found here.

Tried everything? Pet hair on the couch, in the car your bed or even on your clothes don’t have to be a problem. If you still think: “My dog sheds like crazy”. Well, we have something for you. With our pet hair remover, loose hair, fur and shedding are not a problem. It doesn’t matter where it is.

We did a video on how it works. Check it out.



If you are looking for a dog and dog shedding is a major concern, don’t worry. Choose a dog race that doesn’t shed a lot. Already have a dog or love a dog that sheds a lot? Don’t worry at all. With the right supplements and it won’t be a problem at all.
