Sasha is my 3yr old Dobie.  In the last 3 months, she has been shedding like crazy.  I have had a cocker spaniel and sherpard/mix where shedding in large amounts is normal.  Sasha has never shed like this and I don't know if it's because of the summer and I am over reacting or what.?  I have not chaged her food in over 1.5 years.  I feed her Core Wellness Ocean topped with Alaska Salmon Oill  It has kept her coat jet black and shiney and she has never had any adverse reaction to it.  Has anyone here experienced this or know where I could look for more information?  Oh, she seems to be scratching all the time.   Thanks Sheryl

 

 

Have you ruled out fleas? I would think the next step would be to talk to your vet. It is always possible that she has developed an allergy.

Fleas were the first thing that came to mind and she does not have them.  I am going to make her an appt Saturday and he will most likely give her a shot.  I am going to ask him if I should add something to her diet along with the Salmon Oil.  Her coat is really beautiful and that is why I pretty much ruled out her food.  Thank you for the response.  Sheryl
