Hello:

 

There are a few things you can try to help decrease shedding:

 

1. Omega 365 is a product our clients like. It decreases shedding by 77% and it is an omega fatty acid that you add to the food. It looks like a big botle of syrup and you squirt a certain amount on the food daily. It takes 30 days to see improvement, but we sell a lot of it and clients get refills on it - says that it works well.

 

2. Decrease bathing to 2 times monthly. Sometimes alot of bathing will dry the skin and increase shedding.

 

3. Brushing, as you are doing, is helpful.

 

4. Decrease stress. Stress induces shedding - for pets this is change in the environment or illness.

 

Let me know if you have more questions,
