Waipahu's Animal Care Specialists on How to Deal With Shedding, Ewa, Hawaii

Having a furry companion is a wonderful experience, but one of the major downsides is the fact that they shed. The veterinarians and animal care staff at Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital in Waipahu, HI, have been providing the very best in pet health care services to area residents since 1972. Here are their tips for how to deal with shedding:

  • Keep A Brush Handy: One of the easiest ways to deal with shedding is to brush your cat or dog daily. This will remove any loose hairs from their coats that would otherwise fall on your floor or furniture.
  • Choose The Best Food: Better pet food will increase the health of your pet's skin, thus reducing shedding. Talk with your veterinarian about which brands and ingredients are best for your pet.

  • Cover & Clean: If you have an especially furry indoor pet, you may want to consider covering your furniture and even your car seats when you're taking your pet for a ride. Also, try to vacuum as often as you can.
  • Bathe Your Pet: Just as brushing can greatly reduce the amount of hair that your pet sheds, baths will also keep shedding under control. Ask your veterinarian which type of shampoo is best. They'll be able to point you in the direction of the best animal care products on the market.
