No doubt that pet shedding is a common problem that us pet owners have. Today we are sharing a few pet shedding tips to prevent shedding. But first, why pets shed? Dogs and cats naturally lose old or dead hair by shedding a normal thing that happens. Frequency of shedding depends upon health and breed type too. But there are other pet shedding factors, one of them is seasonal shedding. Some cats and dogs develop thick coats in the winter that are shed in the spring.

And Bella knows this well. She is a sheltie dog and has a double coat. Spring and summertime are when she sheds the most. And cats shed too. No matter if they have long hair or short hair. Tatiana, our tuxedo cat, loves to be brushed and feels happy after removing all that dead hair. But how we prevent pet shedding.

Brush your pet often!

We like to brush our pets with the Click & Brush de-shedding tool for dogs and cats. We like it because it is a safer, gentler and more stylish grooming alternative. Unlike ordinary metal de-shedding tools, the Eazee by Foolee Click & Brush features a composite plastic comb with smooth, rounded teeth. The head and contoured handle are precisely balanced, and you can adjust the de-shedding comb depth for either short or long hair by simply sliding a button. Plus, the handle on the Click & Brush system accommodates the company’s variety of accessories to fit any grooming need.

Watch how easy it is to brush Bella and remove all that shedding!

Bathe your pet occasionally during the summer. A clean pet will have a healthier coat. We like to use a de-shedding shampoo. Helps a lot to remove all the dead hair and leaves it ready for grooming.

Feed your appropriate pet food. Sometimes the food quality being fed contributes to having a healthy pet’s coat. Diet high in protein helps restoring the brilliance and healthy looking fur.

Control fleas as this can create skin problems and hair loss, not to mention health issues too.

Visit your vet regularly. Sometimes too much shedding is an alert that something is not going well with the overall health of your pet.

Do you have tips to prevent shedding that you want to share with us?

  1. Wow this is great! I don’t personally have pets but great to share with friends. Helps the issue of not wanting to wear black pants or other clothing. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Hahaha you bring a good point black dress not good with pet hair!If you have pet owners in your list this brush makes a nice gift!

  2. I think I’ll try this sometime. I have a long hair dog and i feel like the hair finds it way in the strangest of places!

  3. I’m a long-haired dog and shed from time to time despite being hypoallergenic. Thanks for the deshedding tool suggestion!

  4. I just had a conversation with my sister, this past weekend about her struggle to brush out her two, double-coated dogs. It definitely is a lot of work. I will let her know you’ve had success with the Foolee comb. I might have to get the one for cats!

  5. My Siberian Husky has been shedding like a maniac this month! It always freaks me out how much hair she has, it looks like it’s snowing indoors right now, LOL! I haven’t tried a shampoo specifically for shedding and most of our brushes are metal so this is interesting. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Looks like a great brush. When I had cats they all shed like crazy, so I used the Furminator which was all the rage at the time. I couldn’t believe how much hair didn’t end up on my furniture. At the moment I only have one dog and he doesn’t shed. Unfortunately due to his abusive past I can’t brush him, but I’m trying. Perhaps this one will be the answer.

  7. Shedding is a BIG issue in our house (5 felines). I appreciate any and all tips I can find to deal with this hairy situation!

  8. Thank goodness for such a useful product! I grew up with nonshedding dogs, but now ours leaves traces all over the house 🙂

  9. Great post and I am blessed that Layla does not shed BUT I do brush her daily it is part of our night ritual and she loves it.

  10. Even though Rotties don’t look like they have much of an undercoat, amazingly, they have about an inch-and-a-half of it. And yes, they can shed.

    We’ve been using FURminator for years now. It works very well. Though the “grooming” glove I ordered for my past birthday seems to work relatively well too and it is much more popular by Cookie.

  11. I groom our dogs once a week, and in the summer it is needed more, to get rid of the dead hair so air can flow through the fur better and cool the dogs better. Great tips, now to get our grooming done ;o)

  12. One of my dogs is an Eskie/Pomeranian mix, her coat looks a lot like a Sheltie’s. I’ve been thinking about getting a furminator, but I will check this out as well.

  13. I’m going to have to check that out, the fact that you can adjust it for long or short haired pets is appealing as I have lots of both. I like a steel comb for my Persian but I think the others might like this.

  14. Bella is such a beautiful dog! Our dog Misha goes through her shedding phase twice a year(she’s part Husky). This would be nice to have around for sure!

  15. We love a good grooming tool. Our Harvey loves his slicker which is great as senior pets don’t always groom as well as they should. Bella is such a lovely dog isn’t she, you must be proud of her.

  16. I use a carbon comb to keep Gusto, an American Eskimo, in show shape with his double coat.. I haven’t heard of this tool before and will recommend it to other pet owners. It looks like it’s very practical to use.

  17. This looks like a great tool! I have to de-shed my cocker, Buffy in the winter when I let her coat grow. In the summer she has a buzz cut and I don’t even see her shed. Bella is quite a beauty!

  18. Since Truffle and Brûlée are Persian cats and have thick double coats, you can imagine the shedding in my house. I may try this too. I’ve tried other deshedders and they pulled the girls for and hurt them.

  19. Grooming with this tool looks super easy. This one reminds me of the Furminator but even better because it doesn’t have the metal combs. My cat Dusty used to love grooming time. You know your pet loves to be groomed when they lean in to it. LOL

  20. This is a cool brush! I am constantly having to brush my Huskies and vacuum my house LOL. I give them salmon oil every day to help maintain a healthy coat. I also use deshedding shampoo and a blow drier whenever I bathe them. That gets a lot of fur out!

  21. Mr. N doesn’t really shed so no tips here! I’ve heard that a good dog dryer and the Furminator shampoo helps though.
