Do Pets Shed in the Summer?

We love our pets but removing shedding from clothes and furniture can be frustrating. With warm temperatures, our pets begin to shed their excess coat to keep cool during summer’s heat.

Shedding is a sign of a healthy pet but different factors affect just how much coating your pet will need to shed…

  • Outdoor lifestyle:  The amount of light pets are exposed to is the biggest trigger. As days get longer, pets begin to shed their winter coats
  • Indoor lifestyle: If your pets enjoy more time indoors, shedding habits are typically less but more consistent year-round
  • Dogs with thicker coats tend to shed more to better adjust to the weather

Seasonal shedding can trigger allergies and asthma symptoms. The severity of the symptoms will vary but may include, congestion, sneezing, runny nose, chest tightness, itching, watery eyes, rashes and more. Protect your loved ones with a few simple tips…

  • Change your filter frequently to maximize air quality.
  • Use a higher efficiency filter that can capture more micro particles. Typically a MERV 11 or higher is recommended for homes with pets.
  • Brush your pets regularly.
  • Keep pets out of bedrooms and furniture, especially upholstery.
  • Clean or wipe furniture and other surfaces thoroughly.
  • Vacuum regularly or avoid carpeting all together.
