Learn about why Frenchies shed, what causes shedding, and simple steps you can do to stop your dog's pesky shedding.
You glance at your watch before you head out the door to work. For once, you have a few minutes to relax before today’s big speech.
You decide to kick back on the couch, flick on the news, and sip your coffee.
“Wow, I really have it together, don’t I?”, you think to yourself, proud at what a fantastic morning you are having.
Before you know it, it’s time to hit the road. As you pick up your belongings, you spot yourself in the mirror.
“Oh god, not again!”
To your surprise, you are completely covered in Frenchie hair with no time to spare! How in the world did this happen?! How do I make sure this never happens again?
Dogs shed. Some more, some less, but most dog breeds are known to shed.
Frenchies sure can shed quite a bit… but is your Frenchie shedding more than normal?
Excessive shedding in French Bulldogs can be caused by stress, poor nutrition, allergies, or serious medical issues.
Regardless the reason for your Frenchie’s shedding, there’s often an easy solution.
Shedding is a completely normal process for dogs in which they “shed” their old or damaged hair according to WebMD Veterinary Reference. Different dog breeds shed more or less than others, but Frenchies are notoriously for shedding quite a bit.
Some breeds also shed to control their body temperature throughout the year, producing a thin coat during summer, and a thicker one during cold months.
Just like us humans’ skin breaks out when we get stressed, the same thing kinda happens with our Frenchies too.
Believe it or not, it’s called stress shedding, and the best way to treat this type of shedding is to keep your Frenchie comfortable or let them wear a jacket.
Your Frenchie is what it eats. Cheap, unhealthy dog foods full of additives and low-quality protein are just one of the causes of excessive shedding.
If you want to keep your Frenchie as healthy as possible, keep their coat shiny and glistening, and keep shedding down to a minimum, you must feed your Frenchie a high-quality diet.
Abnormally excessive shedding can be caused by various medical issues that only your veterinarian can help you with. If you suspect your Frenchie’s shedding could be caused by any of the following, be sure to pay the vet a visit!
