A hairy question Can't Post

Hi all, am curious to find out...just how much hair does a lab shed (esp 5 mth old ones)? Of late, my dog seems to be shedding just a tad too much, even with regular brushing and once a week or so shampoo. Even when I just pull on a patch of fur, some of it will easily come off. Is this normal? On the whole, he looks alright though, not like he's balding or anything like that.

would apprciate any advice

thanks

lab normally shed twice a yeah........so long as ur lab still look 'normal' not need to worry about......the shedding season will last for about 2 weeks or sometime slight over 2.5 weeks.

as for a pup, he may shed 3 times in a year.Smile
since u mentioned that he's not BALD, then u shall see some "new & short" hair growing....
Daily brushing is recommended.

Hi...

What about a GR... How much hair does a GR of about 3 month shed? My pup seem to shed a lot... He doesn't look as fluffy as I brought him home when he was 2 months old.... At 2 month old.. he look very fat.. but now wothout the hair he look extremely thin... Is this usual....

To add on, on master sifu X, Boon and Mack, if over shedding continues, it is dog food "mg ngam!"
