Why your dog moults and loses their fur
Your dog moults twice a year; before spring and in the autumn, shedding their fur to make way for a cooler coat or a warmer one. Dogs can also moult because of an allergy to pollen or grass; if they’re sick, or the immune system is compromised. A poor diet or taking long term medication can also mean your dog loses their fur.
What makes the hair fall out?
Your dog's hair requires a balanced supply of nutrients to remain anchored in the skin and reduce moulting. A dog who doesn’t get these from their diet means the hair becomes dull, loosens, and falls out.
Why do my dog’s allergies cause their fur to fall out?
Nutrients that support healthy hair are the same as those that support healthy skin. Essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants help combat atopic allergies (pollens and grass, air fresheners, anything breathed in which causes an allergic response), inflammation and circulation problems. All of which contribute to moulting in dogs and cats.
How can I stop my dog moulting and losing so much fur?
Two things; feed the most nutritious dog food you can, including treats; add a high quality oil supplement to your dog’s food every day.
Feed your dog Proflax Skin and Coat oil to help:
