Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • My dog is shedding a lot of hair, is that normal? How long will she be shedding? Can I do something to slow her shedding?

    Shedding can be normal this time of year. Dogs will shed their summer coat so that their winter coat can come in. However, if you see any bald spots, redness, or a rash I recommend that you take her in to see a veterinarian. These can be signs of an underlying skin issue that needs treatment. 

    You can read about some of the medical causes for shedding in the following article:
