Preventing and Controlling Pet Hair Loss

Hair loss in pets is most often caused by itching and skin diseases, but it may also be attributed to your pet's nutrition, organ function, blood flow, hormones, and behavior. To reduce your pet's hair loss:

Add an omega 3 supplement

Feed your pet a multivitamin with Omega 3 fatty acids, which may help restore your pet's skin health and reduce hair loss.

Apply a monthly flea preventative

If your pet is constantly itching, this can cause hot spots and other skin diseases which may trigger hair loss. Give your pet a monthly flea preventative to kill fleas and other pesky insects.

Groom your pet regularly

Wash and groom your pet frequently to remove bacteria from the skin and hair follicles.

Establish a healthy diet

Feed your pet food that is lean, nutritious, and fortified with vitamins and minerals.

Tip

Supplement your pet's diet with a fatty acid supplement like Brite Coat Chews, which contains fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6 to help restore a soft and shiny coat.
