hmm.... id really have to think back... Mister's shedding while on kibble was due to allergies. maybe a month or more?? it was not a fast change. the ITCHING was a fast change but not the shedding. do you know why your dog sheds so much? is it abnormal?

well it's not shedding season and there is dog hair all over the I know the kibble isn't so great for her because the underneath and between her toes are stained me this is an allergy thing or and can I give a can of sardines once a week..would this help?:lightbulb:

i give sardines on occasion but mostly he gets a fish oil supplement because sardines are expensive. :) which helped a great deal too.... although i suspect i could probabyl quit that now that he is raw. i woudlnt feed a whole meal of sardines, stretch a can?? use other foods with omegas?? such as free range eggs, flax seed (ground up).
