What to do if the dog strongly fades?

Molt - natural process. If the dog fades in the fall or in the spring - it is normal. It is enough to comb out wool only daily carefully. If the dog fades all the year round and scratches then it is worth pricking up the ears.

  • avitaminosis;
  • violation of hormonal balance;
  • decrease in immunity;
  • diseases of internals of a dog;
  • severe stress.

Besides, some breeds of dog possess long wool with very dense underfur. At such dogs it is difficult to define at what moment the seasonal molt began therefore it seems to many owners that there is this all the year round. Such dogs need to help to get rid of excess down by means of special hairbrushes.

At the same time the dog can have an allergy and nonfood. For example, eating habitual food, the dog began to dump wool, to scratch, it observes reddenings and the increased salivation. It means that the source of an allergy or flies in air, or on surfaces to which it adjoins.

Parasites can be the reasons of nonseasonal molts also. Fleas and ticks provoke a dog to comb stings. Thus on skin there are damages, and wool begins to drop out. Besides, if the dog cannot grow wool, and its weight, then most likely is gradually lost, it is infected with helminthosis. It is in that case recommended to begin treatment as soon as possible.
