What Can I Do to Stop a Male Shih Tzu From Shedding?

My male shih tzu hair is shedding in ball but there aren’t any bald patches. What is the shampoo to use to stop it.

It is the time of year for shedding and the double coat on the shih tzu makes clumps when it sheds. You can try a conditioning shampoo but unless it is A LOT of hair I really wouldn’t worry. It would probably helps to brush through and remove any loose hairs.

    Brush him… constantly- atleast everyday. Shedding happens when seasons change so expect it. Or go and get him professionally groomed and shave his hair short so if he does shed then it is minimal and can be controlled.

    Its spring, he’s going to shed, but if he has a runny nose, it could be allergies. If he is itching or has red, rashy places, then he will need to go to a vet for allergy treatments. Its very common for shih tzus to have allergy problems.

    The shedding this time of year is normal though. Just brush him every day or several times a day. And try using oatmeal shampoo as it is for sensitive skin (which shih tzus have)

    shave his hair off, this is the only way to stop shedding… AND he’ll stilll shed!

    Brush your dog daily to remove all dead hair.

    Brushing your dog will help prevent shedding the best. Make sure that you are feeding a quality dog food. There isn’t a shampoo or pill to prevent it. If someone invents one that actually works they would be a millionaire overnight. Many people with drop coated dogs will have them groomed short which makes the upkeep easier. However that doesn’t prevent shedding. The hairs are just shorter and harder to see.

    first have him given a puppy cut. then most pets stores (pet smart etc) can show you a liquid that you add to the food to help stop shedding.
