Brownie just turned 5 months today.
We were brushing his coat when we realised that he was shedding significantly more than before. Heaps and heaps of soft hair was coming off his coat.
He doesn't appear to have any other skin problems, and everything appears normal.
Is this normal?
Sounds like Brownie is losing his puppy coat! Wish I could tell you that after it's out that he wouldn't shed any more; but, this is just the beginning. ;D ;D
Labradors take shedding to perfection. If I'm not mistaken there is a small period of time where they don't shed. If you blink you will miss it! ;D
The Constitution is suppose to guarantee everyone the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but the Constitution does not guarantee everyone equal outcomes.
Some people are more talented, educated, thieving and dishonest than others.
haha. thanks for the encouragement guy!
We've had him for 2 months now, and hes always been shedding. But never this much. Each time I brush him, so much fur comes out!
I was almost afraid of brushing him for fear he might become bald! ;D
Well that's the most amazing part ... I can brush out a bagful of fur and Shelby never looks any different. And just to encourage you further ;D, I can never tell that it makes any difference in the amount of shedding either. It's just one of the many magical qualities of labs! ;DOriginally Posted by EllySW
Oh, and just wait until your baby has a spring blow. WOWZA ... that's all I can say.
Today we got the furminator. The best thing I have ever bought for a dog.
So much dead hair came out. He now looks cleaner and neater!
Its bloody expensive (USD50), but worth every cent!
I can get bags of hair and still more to come.
Ernie and Sam are in their Spring blow. My poor vaccuum cleaner is on strike.
I even had a bit of fur stuck in my teeth. Was the day I was going to the dentist too.
No I do not kiss the dogs.
All I can suggest is to buy one of those brushes designed to remove dead fur from the under coat, us this and brush him a couple times a week is about all you can do. On the bright side, remember whatever you can brush out doesn't end up in the house or on your clothes!
