My dog is extremely hairy: Which food is right now??
Is the hair on my dog normal or already extreme??
The dog hairs lie on the sofa, they stick on your sweater, they hang in the carpet and are somehow everywhere – even on your sandwich? If your dog is extremely hairy, this is extremely unpleasant for everyone. The skin of your dog is, as with humans also, the largest organ. It will quickly show you if your dog is healthy or sick, or if you have made mistakes when feeding it. If the coat is dull and lackluster or if your dog is shedding extremely, besides the regular coat change in spring and autumn, this is a sure sign that something is wrong. Extreme hairiness is often accompanied by symptoms like itching, reddening of the skin, dandruff and frequent licking. If the hair loss is due to disease, come "nibble at the fur" and "bite add. If you notice these symptoms or if your dog also sheds outside the shedding period, this is definitely not normal and a sign to be more vigilant than usual and to visit a veterinarian to be on the safe side. Because if your dog nibbles too much and hard, it can lead to secondary infections.

On the picture you can see my Holly in the trunk of my car. As you can see there very well, she belongs to the dogs that tend to hair more than other breeds. Holly is a little living flokatite carpet If I would not do anything about it, she would shed continuously. For some time now she has been getting Biotin Aktiv and LupoDerm in her food. This will alleviate the hair loss in any case. Additionally she is brushed 2 – 3 times a week and bathed every 2 weeks. If this sounds familiar, you should definitely read on.
What to do if your dog is shedding heavily?
In order to reduce the extreme hair loss of your furry nose, there are two possibilities. The first method is about the food, the other about a consistent fur care. A healthy diet with as few hard-to-digest fillers as possible, is the basis for a healthy coat. Easier digestible is dog food with a high meat content. Omega-3 fatty acids, such as those found in fish or high-quality oils, are important for soothing the skin. Clean, fresh water must always be available for your dog, in order to provide for elastic healthy skin and to prevent dehydration. Also remember to comb your dog's coat regularly. The even brushing distributes the skin fat in the coat and makes it more resistant. Brushing at the same time provides a massage, which stimulates the metabolism and thus provides more well-being.

Hi I am Alex! Since I can remember, there has always been a dog by my side. Life without it is simply unthinkable for me. Currently I am the proud owner of an Old-English Bulldog bitch named Holly. As "true Westerwalders" it is a matter of course for us to spend our free time as much as possible in the beautiful surrounding nature, in order to have a contrast program to the daily work routine. Holly is my right hand in the office of the feed store and her area of responsibility extends over many subranges (observing, examining, sniffing out, inspiring, cheering up, etc.). ). Their favorite occupation, however, is the permanent quality control of our products – through continuous tasting. Until now, fortunately, there have been no complaints
