How to Reduce Shedding in Greyhound
Answered by: Kerry Hackett
Question from: Linda Tibbits
Posted on: October 30, 2006

What kind of herbal therapy can I use for my greyhound to decrease his shedding?

The first place to begin is to look at a homemade diet. Please look at the work of Richard Pitcairn, "Natural Health for Dogs and Cats", "The Complete Herbal Handbook for the Dog and Cat" by Juliette de Bairacli Levy and "The Barf Diet" by Ian Billinghurst for further details. Beyond that, there are a myriad of possibilities. Is your greyhound a rescue dog? If so, perhaps there is residual trauma form his former life. Is there stress in his present household? Does he get enough exercise and is he of a good weight? Does he receive lots of attention and love from the family? All of the above can contribute to his general health status and therefore the quality of his coat.
