Shedding Dog
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!

Omg, my dog is shedding sooo bad too! she's a little Shiba Inu (not even knee height) and we got like a whole kitchen sized garbage bag of fur off of her!

What we did was brushed her a lot and then used a ShedEnder (saw it on TV :wink: ) It worked really great and got her undercoat out. She doesn't shed any more and her coat is a lot lighter.

that's what it is

That looks awesome! But you can only get it in the states! That sucks! Does it work on short hair dogs as well? My JRT is short haired and my lab is med. haired.

I think it will work on short hairs. I used it on my cat and he has hair like that, lol

hmm, do any of these sell to Canada?

if not you can always check Ebay

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!!!!

I thought that the FURminator was the end-all dog shedding tool?

SonnyWimps 07-22-2008 11:03 PM

nothing will preent a dog from'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.

It usually stops the shedding by 75%-90%

yikes, that's expensive....

the 7th picture is a shiba like my baby!! that's what my living room looked like when i used the Shed Ender on her, lol

I kinda want to go do that again cus it's fun

FGRanch 07-22-2008 11:32 PM

Well the thing I'm thinking of is not a tool it's a drug I'm pretty sure. He used it on both his pugs and it cost him $300 for the both of them. I'll have to ask him what it is again.

hmm, weird haven't heard of that....
