Jack Russell Loosing Hair

Hi

My Jack Russell is almost a year old to the day. He is health very playful and not sickly in any way. He does however loose a lot of hair, on the carpet, in the car ect.
Could he be lacking some sort of supplement in his diet???

Regards

Losing hair is normal for the Jack Russell breed. If no bald spots develop, and there is no excessive itchiness or dandruff, it is definitely normal. You need to get used to it. Regularly brush the body to remove as many of the loose hair as possible.
