|Miss Kiya sheds - and recently she seems to be shedding a lot more, but that could simply be the stress of the holidays. She was at the vet and everything checked out fine, she is healthy and whatever her breeds may be, they seem to be in the shedding variety of dogs.
I was talking to my neighbor about the shedding and she recommended I get one of the anti-shedding supplements to give Kiya on a daily basis. She said that they worked great for their dogs, which are labs.
Of course I thought I would check here on Dogster first to see what the consensus is, if it is worth it, and if so what brand works the best.
Oh, BTW, Kiya gets a good "de-shedding" once a week. She gets rubbed down/massaged by the wonderful fingers of the Kong groomer which seems to loosen the dead fur and then I go over with the Furminator, which OMD I am amazed at how much I brush out on a weekly basis and if I forget to do it for a week or so the amount is astronomical!! She also goes in for a good scrub down, moisturize treatment, good blow-out grooming once a month at her favorite little Doggy Spa- she gets muddy and wet every day so by the end of the month she needs a good bath besides the quick rinse downs we do every day.
Thanks in advance for any advice, suggestions, and feedback!!
