|All dogs and cats shed, just like humans.
The shedding can be made worse by overvaccination. A dog or cat only needs one vaccine per cause as they protect for a lifetime. Vets want to overvaccinate for profit not for protection. Some pets shed more when overvaccinated because the immune system is overloaded with too many vaccines so another reaction can be a lot of shedding. Your vet will not tell you that.
Shedding can be caused by not enough natural meat oil in the diet. Add a few squirts of Natural Alaskan Salmon Oil to the food. Best place to get it from is http://www.USBones.com
What kind of dog food? Look for a natural holistic dog food, again I have been buying from USBones.com a great selection of natural holistic pet foods, treats, chews, bones.
Lastly, see a Holistic Vet for any other preventative care that may be helpful.
Most of us have to vacuum once a week or every other week anyway, so we just vacuum up the hair. Hard floors are preferred as much easier to vacuum up all hair, better than carpet that produces dust and dust mites and hard floors do not.
Get rid of fabric curtains, use verticals or blinds, as hair doesn't stick to them.
A non fabric sofa can be helpful. I have a rustic thick leather sofa and chair for the cats, dogs and kids. Hair doesn't stick to smooth rustic thick leather.
Use smaller non slip carpets where you need them. And easy to wash or rinse off hair with a hose or in the washer or tub.
I saw many of these less shedding tips on the Forums at http://www.DogSTARspace.com since dogster and catster are closing.
Hope this helps and remember the love of a dog is way more important than a little hair.
