Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone here has some advice they could give us, our sweet Dixie is shedding so badly, I take her outside and brush her and it just comes off of her, but it seems this has been going one for sometime now, everything we owen is covered in beagle fur, HELP, any advice would be greatly appreciated.:confused:

We had/have the same problem with Annie. My niece is a dog groomer and she gave us numerous different brushes and such, part of our problem is that Annie has sensitive skin and the slicker and pin brushes seemed to hurt her. Now we use a rubber curry comb its got little pointy triangle things we just brush and brush and brush her with it, usually a good 10 minutes every 3- 4 days. After we brush first one way then the other, you flip the comb over and it pulls off the loose hair though sometimes I just use my hand. This seems to have stopped the shedding a bit. Also have noticed if we do a bath a month and brush her out good right before and right after (sometimes during) she can go like two weeks afterwords with no shedding.

I have the same problem for two weeks now, brush him everyday but still sheding. What really used to help is the Flax Seed Oil, I buy it tomorrow.

Try feeding your beagle powdered kelp we are trying this at the moment and there seems to be an improvement.

Fish oil pills help a bunch.

My beagle was shedding heavily before showing signs of demodectic mange . Check his body for patches .

I used fish and flex, don't know why for me the flex seed worked wonders not the fish, I don't know maybe in fish oil there is mercury , anybody knows?

We give our beagle a shower each week. Once a month we will use a dog shampoo - but otherwise we just put her in the shower and use a hand held shower head to rinse her down. Works well. We do limit the areas and furniture she can be on. This really cuts down the cleaning up the hair.

My Dog is shedding so bad this year! I am constantly vacuuming my couch from all the hair!!! With the fish and flex do I just feed him the pills you get at a health store?

The kelp is just a powder you add to the food bowl

I give the 1000 mg flax seed capsule once a day, just put it in his food. He even eats it , he thinks it's a treat:)
I use the furminator three times a week and the bristle brush and the glove every day. Really improved a lot. When I finish the flex seed I give fish oil capsule 1200 mg once a day.

Brush the dog at least 4 times a week with a shedding brush (it pulls loose hairs out that would soon shed and get rid of the already shed, i use this brush all the time, because I had the same problem with my dog, and it doesn't hurt) Then theirs a spray that helps stop the shedding.

Hi, I had the same issue with Daisy. I bought a brush called the furminator. After I used it the first time for about 15 minutes her shedding has gone way way down. She has sensitive skin and she loves being brushed by this brush. It get the loose fur under the top coat. This brush is amazing!
