EXTREME SHEDDING

Recommended Posts

MY CHESSY WAS SHEDDING ALOT. THE VET SAID IT IS SOME KIND OF SKIN IRRATATION. SHE PROBABLY LOST 1/3 HER COAT & NOW HAS TO STAY INSIDE.THEY SAID IT MIGHT BE THE STRAW IN HER HOUSE, BUT SHE THROWS EVERY THING ELSE OUT. ANYONE ELSE EVER HAVE THIS PROBLEM?

My brother has this problem with one of his Muensterlanders[they look like spanials], but his only gets it in the summer. He loses almost all the hair on his belly. They haven't found a cure, but cortisone shots seem to help.

How old if the dog? I have had an occasional problem with some dogs when their hormones get out of whack or they have on onset of a thyroid deficiency. Hairloss and sluggishness along with other things are signs. Have you changed foods lately? Is the dog sick otherwise?

THE VET SAID HER FOOD WAS GOOD. I USE NATIONAL DOG FOOD. THEY PUT HER ON PREDNISONE, WHICH IS SOME KIND OF STEROID.

I knew a guy that had a chessie and she had an allergy to the yeast in her food they would switch food all the time trying to find a better one, This dog looked awful I would say that she lost over 90 percent of her hair!

Was your female recently in heat? Our oldest female would blow her coat (almost bald) after a litter of pups. After a heat cycle she would get thin spots in her coat. Especially her belly and up the sides. This dog was a puppy machine. Didn't have to worry about keeping stray males out of the yard as much as keeping her in the yard so she didn't go searching for a male. She advertised also. Lay in her kennel and moan. Could hear it for 2-3 blocks away. Real spooky sound.

    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
    • Mike Foster A-1 Archery in Hudson WI March 19th at 6:30
    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
    • Heres a pic of those relays. People out riding the trail out here and my sled is in the shop.
