    My two are shedding now, Loulou is just about done and Sarge is full blown. Ya just gotta deal with it. Its hard to keep up with it but it will stop for awhile till it starts again. If their healthy and happy thats all that matters.

    I find brushing Moey outside first thing in the morning and then again in the evening prevents a lot of the hair getting into the house. Salmon oil has also made a big difference with her skin which has prevented further shedding when her skin is irritated. I also bought one of those combs (rather expensive abt $100 in India) but they do remove the lose hair a lot better than the normal brushes and as I said the regular brushing is good for the poochies but helps with the hair dropping in the house as well.

    My baby Frank of 15 weeks is also shedding a lot. If you see him against the light, he has tiny bald spots along the line from his neck all through the rim of the back. I though it was because we have been combing him 3 times a day and maybe its too much and now we only comb him once a day but the shedding is still going on. Any ideas? Would Salmon Oil be ok for him at this stage?

    Yes we have been giving Bacon salmon oil and ACV since he was a pup.

    Sorry for the delayed response, we put two cap-fulls on a piece of rice cake, he doesn't like the taste of it in his food and he primarily eats ice cubes vs drinking water so that is why we do it that way. You can give it to them however they will take it.

    @sunnyrn36 that is the same salmon oil we used originally, the one @frankthetank posted, and it has the amount of pumps per pound on the bottle. We use generic salmon oil pills now and he gets two a day.

    Brie has been off the salmon oil for almost a week and wow there is a lot more hair everywhere then before. Strange how quickly the effects of stopping it and starting occur. She is def going back on it this week!

    Sherman was like a hair machine. I was very unhappy. I mentioned it to my new vet who specializes and shows his own EB and he recommended Show Stopper. I got a small container on Amazon and I put 1/2 the recommended dose in Sherman's food and I swear it has cut dwn the shedding by 80 percent.

    Frank is shedding too much! Today I gave him a bath ( I give him one every two weeks with Earthbath Oatmeal shampoo ) and he lost too much hair. It is all in the same line, in the back and it seems the hair texture is changing to a more coarse one. Could it be the blower? I can't remember my Angus shedding like this. Frank's skin looks healthy, I don't see any red spots or itching, but take a look at him in this picture I just took today (he is 16 weeks old), anybody has any suggestion? I am worried
