    Laura please remind us. Did she recently change food? Are things stressful? Does she have a rash? Change in behavior?

    @pinkbully Sorry but my work has been crazy these last three weeks so I haven't been around here too much. What was she on, and what are you switching her to??

    Lots of things happening this week at your house. It could be the food change. Some Bully's just have a massive shed once or twice a year. Could be stress. May just have to wait this one out to see what it is. As long as there are no sores or changes in the skin waiting should be fine. Salmon oil in her food will decrease shedding and a Zoom Groom will remove an amazing amount of loose hair and help keep your house clean. Sunscreen if she goes outside for a long period of time.

    Others will be by lets see what they have to say. Take care.

    It could just be her blowing her winter coat, which last about a month. Try using a Zoom Groom on her, it takes a lot of hair off.
