Regular brushing and grooming

Nutrition and dietary supplements
Proper nutrition and dietary supplements can play an important role in maintaining the quality and health of your dog's coat. Choose a quality dog food that is rich in essential nutrients, such as omega-3 fatty acids, which promote coat health. Immunovet helps with fur and skin-related symptoms, such as hair loss and itching. It is recommended to use it as a cure in the spring.
Air conditioning and dehumidification
Overheating and high humidity can also increase shedding in dogs. In an uncomfortable environment, the dog is more prone to shedding, as this is a natural reaction of his body. It is important to ensure adequate air flow and temperature in the dog's area, and to use a dehumidifier or air purifier to dry out the humid environment.

If the dog's hair loss is extremely intense, asymmetrical or patchy, or if other symptoms appear in addition to the hair loss, such as redness, itching or peeling, it is worth contacting the veterinarian. A veterinarian can identify any underlying health problems or skin conditions and recommend treatment or further testing as needed.
