Re: Cant stop the shedding! Need help!
Is there a particular reason you are concerned this might be a health issue? Has he not been a big shedder in the past? Could this be just a seasonal thing? I'm not sure where you live, but he might be blowing his coat if the seasons are starting to change. I was also told once that sometimes indoor dogs are not outside enough to register a change in seasons, so they'll shed year-round.
My dog is a shedder. He gets brushed at least every two days, and there's always plenty of it that brushes off. I try not to look at my car upholstery. Thankfully the furniture is leather, so it doesn't stick to that!
I'd say if your dog doesn't appear to be losing his hair faster than he can replace it (resulting in bald spots), you could try changing his food to one with plenty of Omega-3 and 6 oils in it (like a fish-based diet) or adding fish oil to his current food. His skin and hair could be dry, resulting in it breaking off and falling out more. I would stop shampooing him for now--between the shampoo and the water, it could be drying out his skin and hair even more. Daily brushing will help spread the oil from his skin along the hair shaft, keeping it healthier (and shinier!).
If you are concerned it's a health issue, I would talk to your vet. It could be related to some underlying skin issues, allergies, or stress, but I imagine you would see other symptoms, such as bald spots or excessive scratching/biting at the skin.
