    Default Shedding

    Hi everyone~

    Lola is coming up to be about 6 months now and her shedding is driving me nuts!!! She has been on Fromm for about a month now and from what I heard this dog food is suppose to be amazing for her coat. I don't really know what is going on. Is this normal for a bully?

    I have bragged and bragged that we use a prescription shampoo from the vet that cut Vegas's shedding my 90%. It is an anti-fungal/yeast shampoo and I was amazed at the difference it made in him and it smelled good and made him soft. The last 3 weeks due to seasonal allergies and having fruit trees blooming in my back yard...and I just think the time of year, it has been in the 80's and higher for the last month, he is shedding BAD!!! I think it is the time of year.

    I haven't met a bully yet that doesn't shed. They shed all year, some seasons more then others. I sweep or vacuum daily and it never ends. I have a LOT of love for my fur babies and have learned to live with it. I bet I eat tons of dog hair a year. LOL

    Are you kidding? Got to blow out the inside of the computer often. My slippers seem to be a magnet for it. Instead of dust bunnies I have bulldog fur bunnies!

    Weeeeeeeeeell, a few things to control it a little........first in the spring (now) all animals will start loosing their winter coats.........sooooooo.......go to your rural Tractor Farm & Fleet Store.......spend about three to four bucks...........and buy a horses curry comb........(see picture) this really takes off all shedding hair and helps your dogs coat thin out for spring and summer. Second take your bulldogs for walks....some shedding is due to a lack of vitaminD which is found in sunlight. Thirdly......go to your grocery store and buy a bottle of Kayo Corn Syrup and add a couple of tablespoons to his dry dog food. This will cut down on allergies (which also causes shedding) because it cuts down the dust from the dog food......it also adds shine and strengh to hair of their coats by it's ingredients. The theory being....... stronger hair.......less shedding.
    -curry-comb-jpg Duke loves being curry combed by this soft inexpensive all plastic comb. It really collects the hair........and since it's flexible plastic.......it's easy to clean the brush of it's collected hair.......and have at it again and again until you get no more hair off of your bulldog.
    It's not hard to make people love you.......all you got to do is become a bulldog!

    @LisaMarie, The shampoo really does not have a name on it, it is a white label saying it is a prescription from our vet, I just know when I need more I go in to our vet and tell them I need the anti-fungal/yeast shampoo, I swear it cut his shedding in more than half all winter long, now that it is spring he is shedding more but still not as much as before I started using the shampoo. He was really bad last week and I bathed him, I have noticed a big change and less shedding, but he is still shedding more than normal. The shampoo cost $12 for a big bottle, it does not lather hardly at all, you just wet him down, massage it in all over and I do mean massage it in, let it sit for 10 min. Then rinse real good. (again with the extra shedding.....I think it is just the time of year). I use this also to wash his face wrinkles in a diluted form daily and rinse and dry well.
