Permanent Moulting!!!

by Andrew Rolls
(Selby. Yorkshire.)

I rescued my 14 year old JR, Sally, just over a year ago, and she is brill, but.... she has never stopped shedding her hair(white)!

I've done the usual brushing and combing, but this actually seems to make her shed her hair even more!
I've read that JRs tend to be continual shedders, but is there anything I can do to reduce the amount??
HELP!!!?
Andrew.

Jack Russell shedding NEW
by: Dan

Most people don't realize how much these Jacks can shed and the white hairs are the worst. There are a few things you can try. A furminator, which you can get on Amazon has helped some folks cut down on hair since it removes more than typical brushes or a brush designed specifically for a dog's undercoat. Switching to a high quality organic diet can also help. Adding a fatty vitamin supplement like fish oil is something to try as well. Other than that, a good vacuum and lint brush!!!
