Q. Hello doctor my 10 month old pommorian puppy got heavy shedding in this monsoon season it falling like dust. Which food and tonic is preferable.

Answered By

A. Dogs with certain types of hair coats will "blow their coats" seasonally. This means that they will shed their heavier (winter) fur for a lighter (summer) coat and vice versa as the seasons change. This is likely what your dog is experiencing. You can help by regular brushing to remove the excess fur, and by ensuring your dog is fed a good quality diet.
