When is the shiba inu shedding?
Dogs often shed their hair twice a year: in spring and autumn. In this way, they adapt to the different temperatures that are about to approach, adopting a lighter coat or a thicker and woolly coat..
The shiba inu, like its close relatives such as the akita inu, have an undercoat layer that isolates them even more from the cold winter. They also have a thin layer of fat in their dermis that protects them. In order not to eliminate this natural layer we must be prudent and wash our dog when it is really dirty.
We can see significant changes in already hairy breeds, although in the case of the shiba inu it may be somewhat more discreet. However, we will realize when it is the change of hair since the shiba usually loses hair leaving our home and our clothes well decorated..
If the molt it is not happening at the appropriate time The ideal would be to go to the vet to rule out a possible illness or stress situation of the animal.
