My Dog Is Losing Hair! How Can I Help It?

Date October 1, 2018 18:27

Dog’s hair can fall out for various reasons. This can happen to any dog, both old and young. Luckily, there are several ways out, and we can help your pets cope with it.

This symptom often accompanies aging in dogs. With age, their hair becomes thinner and they also start to give a specific dog smell. The main reason for hair loss, in this case, is that it is more difficult for a dog to take care of its coat on their own.

It is worth paying attention to other signs of dog’s aging:

  • gray hair;
  • teeth grinding;
  • significantly lower activity;
  • increased naughtiness;
  • poorer hearing and sight.

Even if your mature dog suffers from hair loss, it is possible to slow it down.

It is also necessary to revise the animal’s ration. Very often, hair falls out due to lack of vitamins and other nutrients. It is necessary to take the dog to the vet, to take a blood test and find out exactly what it lacks. You shouldn’t choose medicines by yourself not to harm the pet.
