I have a JRT and a Black Lab, both dogs shed like crazy. I've taken them both to the vet and there is no issues and have even tried putting veggie oil in there food. Nothing works!
I've heard that you can get something (not exactly sure what it is) that cost between $150-$300 that actually stops your dog from shedding for I think it's 6 months. Has anyone ever heard of this? If not any other tricks to try to stop shedding would be very helpful!
I've never heard of anything to prevent a dog from shedding, but make sure you are brushign him out....if he sheds alot...than brush him out daily.
The Furminator is a GREAT thing to use to get out the undercoat...which is the part of the coat that sheds. It is NOT something you'll want to do for more than 20 minutes at a time though. Just 20 minutes a day for a month will make a HUGE difference!!!! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000FSFNVI/...l_4imqjmry9h_b
nothing will preent a dog from shedding..it's natural for them. FURminator will remove the hair that has to be shed, yes...but it won't stop the dog from shedding...there will always be a little bit that will come off, but not to the extent of what is happening now.
