Shedding the Winter Coat

At this time of year, you may notice your pet shedding profusely. Spring and warm weather is on the way and your pet is slowly but surely releasing their winter coat. This can be an irritating time for you as it will feel like you can’t clean the hair up fast enough, but please remember it can also be a bit irritating for your pet too! 

The loss of your pet’s winter coat can cause them to scratch a lot as their hair comes out sometimes in chunks. To help ease the process and make them feel better (and look better!) we recommend brushing them daily to loosen the hairs.

Please remember that seeing bald patches is NOT normal and could be a sign of a more serious condition. If you notice this or any rashes or skin irritation, please schedule a visit with us right away.
