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.

    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
