    Lily is shedding so bad... her fur is flying off of her like crazy! Is it possible she's losing her summer fur and getting fall fur???

    I notice the white hair on my bullies sheds first. Or maybe just, worse.

    I think the white just Shows up more. I do agree it's getting to the time of year that they just shed more. I've noticed an increase in shedding for HRH and she does get a fish oil capsule every day.

    Wilson's also been shedding a bunch the last few weeks. I finally bite the bullet and got the Furminator to brush him with and it works wonderful. Never thought I pay that much to brush my dog with though and wish I would have gotten it long ago for my other short hair dogs. Wilson's coat is also thick.

    On a side note, he's been off the Salmon Oil for about 6 weeks now and I've noticed a big difference in his shedding. I have more on order now and got a smaller bottle so it doesn't go rancid.

    I also have noticed a change in the shedding the last few weeks. It is nuts! But, they are on the fish oil too and it sure has helped.

    Both mine are shedders too. You can brush and brush and brush... You would think they would be bald, but no... it's still coming off.
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    So glad it's not just us! My husband tells me to stop brushing before Lola's skin comes off!

    For those that use fish oil, how many capsules do you give them per day?
