I've recently noticed that my dog is shedding a lot more than ususal. I can actually pull his hair out by lightly tugging on them. I could understand if the hair was dead, but it looks healthy. I decided to run a slicker brush through it, and it picked up a lot of hair with just a single brush. Usually my slicker brush would pick no hair. Jack isn't scratching himself more than usual, so I assume it's not a parasite. I was wondering if it could be shampoo residue sitting on the skin, as it has only been five days since I washed him. I've taken some pictures: The red marks look like bites; most likely from ticks. I always make sure to check him over and remove them. http://imgur.com/8xj4i&vJR7T&6DJ6Il&PnVLF Some of the hair I pulled out of him. This was from lightly pulling on his coat. In the past, this never happened. http://imgur.com/8xj4i&vJR7T&6DJ6I&PnVLFl What his coat looks like. He looks a bit solemn in this picture, but he was jumping around and playing with me. I can't notice any difference in his coat from a distance, but he is shedding quite a lot. http://imgur.com/8xj4i&vJR7Tl&6DJ6I&PnVLF Forgive me if you think I'm overreacting, but my dog means a lot to me.
