My pet’s moulting is driving me crazy!

Shedding is a natural process for our pets to rid themselves of old or damaged hair and replace it with new hair that is suitable for the environment they live in.

Why do pets shed or moult?

Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter…

Changes in temperature and day length “tell” your pet what season it is and determine what type of coat it needs. Many dogs and cats shed their old undercoat each spring to help them cope with the warmer summer weather and re-grow it again as colder temperatures set back in. Our brightly lit, central heated homes can confuse this somewhat, so some pets seemingly shed all year round.

How can I minimise the effects of shedding?

As much as we love our pets, finding their hair all over the carpet, furniture, clothes, car and bedding is not high up on many pet owners list of reasons for getting their pet in the first place. It’s a part of pet ownership that adds extra work to the normal day to day but with the right tools and routines can be minimised and managed effectively.

Brush daily using the right type of brush for your dogs coat type.

Bath monthly using a shampoo specially formulated to help with shedding. Massaging this through a wet coat using a rubber massage brush will help loosen dead hairs, sending them down the plug hole and helping the shedding process.

Your pet’s coat is often a reflection of what they eat, so feed them the best food you can find to suit your budget, with good digestible protein sources.

Cover up soft furnishings with covers or blankets. Shake these outside before washing regularly.

Hoover often! Frequent vacuuming is the best way to keep your home hair free. Our pet hair magnet is great for brushing hair off clothes and soft furnishings, as well as getting into tight areas such as corners and stair crevices.
