Shedding Tips

by Jean Hofve, DVM

For dogs and cats, shedding is a normal part of life. Their fur, like our hair, is always growing. Individual hairs do go through a dormant phase, but there's so many of them you'll never notice! As the hairs age and die, new hairs start to grow and push the old ones out. These either come off completely (usually on your opposite-colored carpet), or get tangled up and create mats.

There are four main factors that affect when and how much a dog or cat will shed:

1. Breed. While it may seem contrary, long-haired breeds (Afghans, Setters, Persians) tend to shed less than short-haired pets, because it takes so long to grow out that lush coat. Short-haired breeds constantly grow new hair, and push out old hairs that love to slip into furniture, food, you name it!

There are different types of coats, depending on breed. One is a single layer with little or no undercoat; these are the lowest-shedding types.
