While it’s healthy for a dog to lose damaged hair by shedding his coat, it can be frustrating for pet owners who feel as though all they do is vacuum up piles of fluff! The frequency and amount of hair that is shed depends on several factors, but dog owners who choose to groom their dog at home can often keep shedding under control.
Here are our Vet's suggestions on how to get rid of pet hair and odour from our homes.
1.Regular Baths with Captain Zack Shampoo once every 7 to 10 Days
Bathing your dog not only cleans his coat, but also helps to remove dead hair. Deshedding shampoos and conditioners contain moisturisers and omega fatty acids to hydrate your dog’s skin and fur to create healthier, stronger follicles. These shampoos and conditioners can also help to loosen and remove your dog’s excess undercoat. Bathing your dog regularly and
grooming him using brushes or a deshedding tool once he’s dry can significantly combat shedding.
2.Brush your dog's coat twice a day daily
Depending on your dog’s coat type, you may need to brush your dog every day or only once a month! There are several types of brushes:
- Bristle Brush – This brush is good for all coat types, but a brush with more widely spaced and longer bristles should be used on dogs with a longer coat.Coarser hair may require stiffer bristles.
- Wire-Pin Brush – This type of brush is good for curly, woolly coats that range in length from medium to long.
- Slicker Brush - Made with fine wire bristles, a slicker brush is useful for removing mats and tangles.
- Combs - Rubber curry combs massage your dog’s skin and help to remove dead hair from short-haired dogs.
