Not sure why Harley is shedding so much, I thought that was one of the benifits of raw? He has never shed this much before? Just thought it was kind of odd, (New to dogster, first post! hello everyone smilehappy dance

It's been a really HOT summer. I've heard many folks complaining about shedding problems.

Do you give an omega 3 supplement? Fish oil?

How much red meat do you feed? What does a basic week look like?

I'm triple- superior MAD- now!

All the hair has to be lost every year. It is how it happens that might change. Healthy skin holds on to the hair and loses it in a shorter time period while dry unhealthy skin drops hair constantly. Give your dog a bath and brush until completely dry, gets out gobs of hair at one time.

Sassy's best shed was during a camping trip in hot weather. By the time we were home all the old coat was gone and there were ZERO Sassy dust puppies in the house until the following year. The worst was when she was dehydrated and developing kidney issues, if you touched her a cloud of dandruff and hair swirled around her.

It's just the heat I would guess most animals are shedding raw fed or not. My terrier doesn't shed but I only have to touch my rabbit at the minute to come away with fur.
