Worshondjie verloor nou baie hare oor 'n lang tydperk

Ek hoop iemand kan dalk vir my help. Candy (my worshond, 8mnde) verloor die afgelope 2mnde ongelooflik baie haretjies. Oral waar jy kyk lê hare. Op my banke, op die teel, matte, beddens ens. Maar ek sien nie haarlose kolle op haar nie. Al waar haarlose kolle is, is onder by haar "kieliebakke". Sy het ook skilfertjies. Is dit seisoens verandering was so maak, of is daar 'n probleem. Want 2mnde is nou te erg. Ek moet 2keer 'n week beddegoed was ens.
Kan iemand dalk vir my help asb.
Dankie
Sharon

Hi Sharon
Puppies often get puppy mange under their jaws and on their faces, which can be easily sorted out if you go to your vet. Otherwise this could just be normal moulting due to the change from puppy coat to adult coat and the change of season. Stress can also cause a dog to lose more hair than normal so make sure you are doing all you need to do for her - daily walks on a lead outside the property, socialising with other dogs, toys to play with, company most of the day, a view out of your home, etc. You need to brush your dog at least twice a week with a rubber or soft brush to get rid of all the loose hairs and to condition the coat. Regular brushing will also help with flaky skin and is much better than bathing, which can dry out the skin. You should not bath your dog more than once a month. You will have to continue washing or shaking out the bedding regularly too.

Ek het 'n puc en hy verloor net so baie hare. Jou beste is maar om hom gereeld te borsel. Ek het ook gehoor iemand se as jy vir 'n hond rou eier gee val hulle hare minder uit. Ek gee nou maar vir hom so eier/melk mengsel om te drink. Ek dink net jou hondjie is nog bietjie jonk vir melk. Gee net vir hom die eier geklits, en ook miskien net 'n halwe een en kyk hoe hy reageer.
My honde is mal oor dit en dit laat hulle pelse blink ook.

Sharon, ek dink is seisonaal. My min pin verloor net so hare, ek bad haar so half pad deur die lente om van die haartjies ontslae raak, kan seker meer bad, jou keuse. Ek borsel haar ook, wanneer sy my toelaat natuurlik. Dieselfde ding gebeur met my kat op die oomblik, sy geniet natuurlik haar gate uit met die borselry.
