There are lots of pets out there that need a loving home... find out how you can help!

Fall Shedding

Fall marks the beginning of many things...School, allergies, and animal shedding! Animals are shedding that summer coat and getting their heavy winter coat ready. Seasonal shedding is normal but it's a chance to take notice of your pet's skin and coat condition. Is it dull? Are there bald patches? Is there excessive hair loss? These could all be signs of illness or poor nutrition. All indicators that your pet needs to see the vet to make sure everything is okay.
