4 Fall Shed Season Tips

Pet 4 Fall Shed Season Tips

Colorful leaves, the crackle of campfire, and pumpkin spiced lattes. As much as we look forward to fall, we sure don't look forward to the massive shedding happening right now!

Seasonal shedding comes twice a year, in the Spring and in the Fall. Grab the broom and vacuume, and see the tips below on how to get through this seasonal shed.

  1. Grooming
    During shedding season, you may notice your pet is itching more. Vet's Best Allergy Itch Relief Dog Shampoo washes away allergens, relieves itchy & irritated skin, and leaves your dog smelling spa-fresh.
    The more often you bathe and brush your pet, the less hair you will be vacuuming off your floors and furniture. Even if you have to take your pet to the groomer regularly, you'll thank yourself later.
  2. Hydrate
    Dehydration can lead to dry skin, in turn causing excess shedding. A hydrated dog is a healthy dog whose shedding should remain under control.

    Knowing the right amount of water needed for your dog is hard. The best course of action is to always provide access to clean, fresh water. Also keep this tip in mind, an adult dog needs approximately an ounce of water per pound of body weight every day.
  3. Supplements
    Omega Fatty Acids are essential nutrients that your pet needs for a healthy skin and coat. The healthier the skin and coat, the shorter the seasonal shed!

    Add a bit of LickOchops or SuprOmega Fish Oil to your pet's high quality food to provide the tools needed to get through this shed season.   
  4. Treatment
    Not only do we have to worry about the amount of fur on our floor, we have to worry about keeping our pet's protected during peak flea and tick season as well.

    Luckily, Zoguard Flea and Tick is effective against all life stages of the flea, effectively breaking the life cycle and controlling re-infestations.

    Zoguard is also comparable to Frontline Plus by containing the same active ingredients, and offering the same level of flea and tick protection at a better value.


Shedding sucks... But by regularly grooming your pet, ensuring they are hydrated, using the correct supplements, and keeping them treated, this shed season will be a breeze.
