Spring not only brings showers and flowers, but also the joy of a shedding pet! This is normal in the Spring and called “blowing their coat”. Common breeds that experience this are german shepherds, huskies, collies…the list can go on and on. To help make it more manageable, try brushing them for a few minutes every day to help prevent painful mats. This is usually normal for all pets, but if you start to notice bald spots or any irritation, call your Veterinarian to get it checked out to make sure there is nothing else going on medically.
