It’s that time of year when we get customers calling in a panic to see if they can move their appointments up. The number one reason is their pet is shedding.
In the springtime, your dog or cat will lose his thick, winter coat. Come fall, the summer coat is shed in order to make room for heavy protective fur for winter. You’ll notice this mostly in “double-coated breeds like collies and shelties who have a long overcoat and soft, insulating undercoat.
The recent swings in temperatures have tricked the pets coats, so we are seeing more shedding in most dogs and cats (barring poodles who don’t shed, but need frequent grooms to prevent matting).
German shepherds and many double-coated dogs shed year-round. Even labs and golden retrievers shed a ton, despite their short fur. Cats shed year-round (indoor cats).
Shedding can be kept under control with frequent grooms. Call us now to book a groom to get shedding under control!
