Many owners of Husky are particularly prone to shedding, especially Husky puppies, which shed a lot in the summer. Every day a comb sheds a lot of hair, a small bag at a time, so that less than a month, Husky puppies have no hair at all, leaving only the outer coarse hair. What should I do about my beloved Husky? Don’t worry, shedding or waxing is a common problem for Husky. Let’s take a look at some of the common causes of Husky’s hair loss and what to do about it:


1. Physical and seasonal coat hair loss

But be sure to use your pet’s special comb to comb more of Husky’s hair, and use a glue or vacuum cleaner to clean up loose dog hair and keep the house clean.

Husky is a silly breed that tends to get dirty when playing outdoors, and some pet owners who aren’t careful may wash him too often, which can upset the acid-base balance of his skin, which caused it to lose its fur. In addition, we do not use human products to wash Husky, because the Ph of the skin will cause Dandruff and a large number of coat hair loss phenomenon, so pay attention to the use of pet-specific bath products.

4. Skin diseases and parasites

If Husky’s hair loss is severe, often accompanied by frequent itching and even partial depilation, the pet owner should consider whether there are parasites or skin problems. If it’s a fungal skin disease like dog ringworm, we’ll put a collar on Husky and medicate him. In the case of parasites, we should consult a veterinarian to use the appropriate deworming agent for deworming.
