How to protect your dog from excessive moulting

Dog hair. Typically your dog will shed their hair as most dogs do and it is a part of life. You find it on your clothes, your carpet, your furniture and sometimes your plate. If you notice excessive moulting, it becomes a problem not just for you but it could be a sign your dog has health problems.

Toxins in dog foods

Extreme moulting is very likely to be diet related, originating from low quality dog foods. Your dog may not be getting all the nutrients they need from a healthy balanced diet, especially if the food contains cheap filler ingredients and low meat content.

Surprisingly, many commercial dog foods also include hidden ingredients that are classed as toxins for dogs. These toxins are naturally expelled through a dogs liver and kidneys, and when these become overloaded the toxins are released through the skin, causing extreme hair shedding. So if you’re using a low quality dog food like supermarket brands, you are likely to see excessive moulting and several other health issues.

High quality ingredients

A change in diet could be the answer to many health issues. If your dog has no special dietary requirements, you need a dog food with high quality ingredients and high meat content.

Trying a grain-free dog food with no hidden ingredients could be the way to go to ensure your dog is getting the nutrients they need. Without cheap grain fillers, there’s higher meat content as standard. With a complete, balanced diet and high quality ingredients, your dogs symptoms could reduce or stop within 4-6 weeks.
