• SPRING AND SHEDDING
Spring brings fresh air and flowers to busy birds and bees. It ALSO brings heaps and heaps of hair – EEK!
And even though seasonal shedding is beyond NORMAL, we as pet-parents really don’t have to suffer through clumps of fur for days on end.
So do follow our SUPER SIMPLE steps to reduce shedding; and to help ensure your pet’s coat is healthy, glowing and glorious to look at.
• NUTRITION AND SHEDDING
As the famous saying goes – we are what we eat. Therefore it’s vital that we provide our pets with QUALITY food that benefits their inner and outer health.
These premium diets contain high-quality proteins, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals; that are of course crucial to help aid against the shedding crises and to help keep your pets’ coat and fur in tip-top condition too.
• WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PREMIUM DIETS
Premium diets, at first glance, can blow our minds with their prices – JOH – truth.
However, pet-parents have actually noticed a difference in as little as 4 weeks after letting their pets feast on high-quality brands – for realsies.
In addition, because these five-star diets are highly digestible and nutrient dense – our pet-children actually eat less. Therefore one bag of premium pet food surprisingly lasts longer; and is thus MORE cost effective as well. KA POW – mind blown.
Need another bonus? These superior diets also spoil us as pet-parents with less poop to scoop! Now that IS indeed priceless!
• HYDRATION AND SHEDDING
Dehydration can lead to a stack of health problems, but it can also lead to a dry and itchy skin. Parched skin then leads to scratching, that then leads to excessive shedding. Jip.
• CONTROL TICKS AND FLEAS
Tick and fleas are atrocious. They can cause illness, discomfort and leave our pets in a very itchy state. Prevent the scratch and the hair detach epidemic with our vet-recommended DOG and CAT flea treatments
Continuing with tick and flea treatments throughout the year is defs the way to go.
Check for signs of fleas using a FLEA COMB. You might spot the guilty goggas themselves or come across small black flecks of flea dirt.
Fleas must be treated on both your pet and the environment. Try this this magical FLEA ENVIRONMENTAL SPRAY in your home together with your preferred pet treatment to help eradicate fleas entirely.
• WASHING AND SHEDDING
Regular grooming significantly reduces shedding and improves that special owner-pet bond. Bathing your dog at least once a month is key for coat care.
NEVER use human / baby shampoo as the pH of a pet’s skin drastically differs from our own.
• WASHING PETS WITH SKIN CONDITIONS
Some four-legged children suffer from sensitive skin, allergies and/or other skin related problems. This shouldn’t be a reason not to give them a bath though.
Combat dirt and skin irritations with MEDICATED SHAMPOO.
If you’re not sure about the best shampoo for your pet’s condition, always speak to your vet about a suitable recommendation.
• BRUSHING AND SHEDDING
Brushing is a magnificent way to remove dead, dull and loose hair from your pet’s body – and again – assist with shedding reduction.
The FURMINATOR is an excellent choice to remove lifeless fur and flaunts great customer reviews too.
Springtime shedding is normal, because our precious pets have to shed their woolly winter coats in order to welcome their stylish and sleek summer coats.
Some pets like German Shepherds, Siberian Huskies and Golden Retrievers of course shed throughout the year. BUT if shedding occurs during unexpected months for notable springtime shedding breeds – the problem might just be more serious than just a seasonal wardrobe change.
Speak to your vet and always do what’s best for your pet.
