yup, I agree. There isn't much you can do about shedding, but a high quality food will make a HUGE difference.
My BIL had a golden who shed unbelievably, and he alwasy complained about it. I finally asked him what he was feeind (Beneful), and I gave him some food info, and he switched to a better qualty kibble, and he says the shedding has been reduced to almost nothing. (he used to sweep his floors every day during shedding season, now he sweeps once every two or three weeks!!)
here's a link to our food forum : http://www.pets.ca/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=53
