Cane Corso shedding

The Cane Corso coat consists of two layers that make this breed suitable for outside living conditions. In summer months, Corso starts to release the excessive amount of hair to get ready for growing new ones. Cane Corso shedding requirements may not be as high-maintenance as in other long-haired breeds. However, since it sheds throughout the year, it does require regular brushing.

Tips to keep under control your Cane Corso shedding

For a dog owner, there’s no better compliment than hearing how shiny and healthy his dog’s coat looks. In case you’ve just brought a Cane Corso puppy home, then you’re probably wondering what would be the best brush for grooming its fur. Shedding in your dog not only presents a problem for your living place but also for your dog. If dead hair doesn’t fall out on their own or you don’t brush your canine, it can be stuck deep in the coat and cause tangles ad mats.

Cane Corso shedding requires using hard brushes, and it’s essential to perform it once a week. For reaching all the spots on a dog’s body, grooming gloves present a better option. They contain soft silicone pins that will not damage a dog’s hair follicles. Therefore, you can use them daily.

To improve your dog’s quality of coat and prevent its skin from yeast overgrowth, you can use a 50/50 solution made of water and apple cider vinegar.

Apple cider vinegar is famous for its antibacterial effect and one of the best natural remedies in fighting yeast. Cane Corso shedding can be minimized if you spray this solution right before grooming. In that way, you’ll not only stop his hair from flying all around but will also prevent it from twitching during grooming.

What is a normal Cane Corso shedding?

As we all know, dogs shed throughout the year. On the other hand, seasonal shedding in Cane Corso usually occurs in the summer (or late spring), and may also happen in the fall. To save your home from finding a dog’s hair everywhere, hoovering its fur might present the best option. Of course, it can be performed only in case your pooch normally reacts to the noise of the vacuum cleaner.

Cane Corso excessive shedding- What to do?

It’s a fact that you can’t stop your Cane Corso shedding. However, excessive hair fall might be a reason to become worried. Therefore, every dog owner needs to know how to make a difference between standard and extreme hair loss symptoms.

The signs of excessive Cane Corso shedding

Unusual hair loss in dogs may point out to many underlying issues. Here is the list of symptoms that every dog needs to recognize:

-dry and brittle hair

- itchiness

- bald patches

- fragile hair

The list of potential causes:

  1. Inappropriate shampoo

Using an unsuitable dog shampoo can be one of the reasons for your dog’s hair loss issues. You shouldn’t use human shampoo for bathing your Cane Corso because dog posses different pH of the skin. Even a baby shampoo can cause their skin to become itchy. Therefore, I advise every CC owner to use a hypoallergenic dog shampoo to escape any potential skin issues.

  1. Food allergy

Food allergy is another issue that may trigger your Cane Corso’s shedding. In most cases, dogs develop food allergies if they eat food rich in by-products and artificial ingredients. Therefore, my advice is to switch to a raw food diet that can improve your dog’s overall being. In that way, you’ll be the only one who will tailor your dog’s nutrition. Adding ingredients rich in Omega 3 and Omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants can leave many benefits on your dog’s coat appearance.

  1. Environmental allergens                                                                                                                         Environmental allergens come to third place. Your Cane Corso can start to excessively shedding due to a household cleaner or other chemicals you use in your living place.
  2. Hormonal imbalance

             In case you’ve determined that none of the previously mentioned causes affect your Cane Corso shedding, then you might check its hormones. Hormonal imbalance in your dog’s thyroid can cause its hair to fall out and become fragile. In CC females, during the period of lactation or pregnancy, you may expect excessive shedding. However, if your Corso started to lose hair in patches, my advice is to ask your vet to prescribe you supplements.
