It’s clear you need to take care of white hair so it doesn’t turn yellow or brown. But have you ever wondered that it might be possible to help the white hair to shine with food and food supplements?
Pets start to change winter fur for summer fur. Hair is everywhere at home, there are balls of hair in the corners of rooms and under furniture and it starts to get out of our control even though we clean our homes every day, the consumption of pet hair removers increases and it is almost impossible to wear black clothes. All of you definitely know that. Let’s look at some tips how to mitigate shedding.
Of course, everything starts with quality and balanced diet. Without necessary nutrients, your pet neither its fur will do well. Food should be easily digestible, i.e. grain-free, with the largest proportion of meat in a perfect case. Skin health and fur quality and shine may be supported by food supplements. Salmon oil is great for this purpose, for example. A good choice is also zinc or biotin.
We also shouldn’t forget about regular and suitable care. Comb your companions regularly. It is particularly important for dogs living in flats that often shed during the whole year. Combing also helps with spreading sebum on the fur which partially reduces its falling out. At the time of shedding, combing might be necessary every day.
Always use quality products designed especially for dogs or cats and choose the right comb carefully on the basis of the type of fur. If you choose a wrong one, you might harm the undercoat or fur structure. A keeper or a pet shop worker might help you with the decision. Generally, it can be said that for coarse hair, hoof knives are suitable, and for soft hair, a brush glove is suitable. Rather use a deshedding comb for long-haired dogs and a pin brush for short-haired dogs. Soft brushes from natural fibres and combs are suitable for cats, some types of fur only need suede cloth.
You may bath the dog at the end of the period of shedding, the dead hair will stay in the bath and it will make combing easier. However, do not bath it too often, it might adversely influence the fur quality and its self-cleaning ability.
Sufficient drinking is also very important. Dried skin leads to increased shedding. An adult dog should drink about 45 ml of water for 1 kilogram of its weight. When under load, doing sports or in hot weather, it should be more, of course.
If you pay more attention to your pet’s fur in this period, you’ll often comb them and help it with food supplements besides quality dog food, it doesn’t only help your household and clothes, you can also shorten the whole process of coat renewal.
