We had a chat with a couple of veterinarians, who told us all the reasons why your dog sheds so much fur. You won’t guess the reasons!  

It’s normal for any dog to leave some fur here and there, especially if it’s a breed that’s super fluffy. Your dog loses the dead or damaged hair during this entirely natural process to create a place for new, healthy fur. While your dog may shed sometimes throughout the year as it prepares for warmer weather, the majority of dogs shed more in the spring.

But when the fur becomes a problem, what can we do? In this article, we will find out the main reasons why your dog sheds so much fur and if it’s time to make an appointment with the veterinarian.

  1. Your articles are very interesting, helpful, and I relate to all of them. I am 81, have a 5 year old Chihuahua mix that wants to go with me every time I leave the house. Can’t take her to doctor appointments, shopping, etc. Do take her whenever possible. We do snuggle for hours in the afternoons.
    Took her to my sisters two years ago. Got her out of the car, had her on a leash that had some slack in it. She took off running, tried to attack a man and I went down on blacktop face first. Broke my nose, left wrist, and three teeth.
    Rescued her, wanted a younger dog because I didn’t want to get attached and her pass before me.
    After the incident two years ago, I am not comfortable walking her on a leash. Any suggestions?
