Sunday, shampooed my hair while massaging hair saw numerous strands on my palm. Terrifying, isn’t it? We tend to lose more hair thinking that we are losing hair. Analogously hair fall exists in dogs too, the same way as with us. Hair loss in the course of shedding is usual for dogs. Also, all the dogs will shed more during the longer days beginning in the summer than they will during the shorter days starting in the winter. This is due to the seasonal shedding rotations related to variations in light. Many pups have heavy shedding seasons in the spring and fall. The spring shed removes thick winter fur and prepares the pups for summer; fall shedding removes light hair so the thicker winter coat can grow in. These seasonal sheds prepare pups for summer and winter, although they do not occur in those particular seasons. For dogs who shed seasonally, the spring shed is generally heavier as it removes all of that thick winter insulation.
Hair loss in dogs is mainly not only accompanied by common symptoms like itching and skin irritation but also dog’s hair loss indication can be the effect of numerous medical problems including mange, mites, ticks or dermatitis. Home remedies for treating dog hair loss are safe to try to control economic expenses, but a definite opinion of the reasons should be taken from a vet.
Treatment is always specific to the cause of the problem. For example, if your pet has fleas, which is the number one cause of skin problems and hair fall in pets, your veterinarian will recommend immediate relief and long-term relief. For immediate relief, comb your pet with a flea comb or bathe your pet with a pet shampoo formulated to kill fleas. But certain basics like a homemade hygienic diet, regular grooming, adding quality supplements and timely foods (Royal Canin, etc) which contain ingredients like Omega 3 and Omega 6 which are necessary. Using the right shampoos and bathing after a good interval also caters good fur. Over bathing can contract skin infections and fur loss.
