Our question this week was:

Dr. Jon - Our young female beagle is constantly shedding. She is brushed daily. Any suggestions?

Jim Hoblitzell


Answer

Hi Jim – thanks for your email. Shedding is a problem and some dogs shed more than others. There is not much you can do other than bathe periodically, brush daily and make sure you are feeding a good quality diet.

We recently did a survey of beagle owners asking 45 questions about what is was like to own a beagle. One question was – "Can you describe how much shedding your beagle does?".

Approximately 75% said their beagle did a substantial amount of shedding (and 25% of that grop said their beagle she A LOT of shedding). So you are not alone.

An article that might be helpful to you is Shedding in Dogs.

Best of luck!


Dr. Jon
