Do you have a bushy dog? Or a pack of fuzzy cats? Are you one of those people who love animals but hates all that pet hair? Well I’m like that; I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked around with a sweatshirt that seems to have its own shirt added to it thanks to my animals. Luckily I’ve found some really great ways to deal with such a problem.
Brush Your Animals Outside Every Day: For dogs and cats, especially those with thick coats, take them outside and brush loose fur off them. You might want to look into certain high quality brushes made just for this problem. One way to properly take out any shedding hair is by brushing against the way of the hair to loosen them, then to brush the way of the fur.
Groom: Along with brushing, make sure to keep your pets groomed. A dog should be bathed about once a month, and make sure to use shampoos with oatmeal as an ingredient to help the skin and coat.
Vacuum: Make sure to vacuum as needed. Some people with a lot of furry friends have to vacuum every day.
Healthy Diet For Your Pets: It all starts with a healthy diet. Normally, I’m one of those bargain shoppers who defends the generic brands. This case, however, is an exception. Purchasing cheap brands of pet food can greatly decrease your pet’s life expectancy as well as their quality of life. To get healthy skin and a shiny coat that isn’t falling out everywhere, make sure that you’re buying the best for your furry friends. You can also add raw eggs to a dog’s food if need be, and fish oil is always a great thing to give to a dog or cat. Just make sure to consult a vet to figure out how much fish oil to give your pet.
Tape and Other Sticky Items: You can also purchase items that are made specifically for pet hair problems. In fact, one item I’ve been meaning to try is a new product from Pledge, called the Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair. But then again, sometimes using something as convenient as masking tape can work to get hair off your clothes and furniture.
