So Parker is shedding a ton, what I would consider blowing his coat. He is 14 weeks old. Is this normal for them to do at this age? Poppy my other longcoat did not do this so I wasn't sure if it was normal.
I don't think at that age he's actually blowing his coat, not the typical coat blowing that adults go through anyway. His coat is going to change over time, and his baby fur is slowly going to be replaced by his permanent adult coat, and I'm guessing that's starting. Even Jazz, though she's an SC, went through a period around 3 - 4 months when she started losing her soft, fuzzy puppy coat and for a short while I thought she might have a skin condition because there was hair everywhere! But she was just beginning the transition from puppy coat to adult coat.
i agree with tink id say hes losing his puppy coat and same thing with me i thought zac had a skin condition as they look baldy sometimes but im sure thats all it is making way for his lovely adult coat x
Yep, losing fuffy puppy coat--that was about the time my first furbaby went from black to red...LOL and all I did was brush... At the time, hubby wanted me to put it back--that was first long coated chihuahua we ever had and did alot of reading..
