Annual Event

Need help. Last year around this time I wrote in regarding my Havi's shedding. I was told that he was blowing his coat and it would eventually stop. It did. Now it is happening again. So, just wanted to know if this is an annual event?

Also, his coat looks dry, lost his shine However, it is soft. Any ideas on this?

I am going to try to start him on raw food diet, as I heard it helps his coat, as well as other benefits.

Any and all input would be appreciated.

Augmenting his food with fish oil and/or coconut oil can also help his coat. -Jeanne-

He is 19 months. I have already started him on coconut oil, but he still shedding. I thought that Havanese dogs didn't shed. So I curious to know if this another blowing of the coat? And if so, does this happen frequently?

Thank you

They DO shed, even as adults… just a little bit at a time, and it gets caught in their coat so that it doesn't come out (much) until you groom them.

That said, at your guy's age, it could definitely still be part of his change over from puppy coat to adult coat. MANY blow coat at least 2-3 times, and their coat isn't considered fully mature until about 3 years old.
