    Our 10 month old black lab has falling hair everywhere she walks and lies. I've tried brushing her with the Ferminator once a week, plus another brush but my floors are just covered. Other than this she is healthy, her coat is super shiny and she gets a high protein diet and salmon oil daily.

    I wondered if she was losing her puppy coat, its mid season in UK so she should have lost her winter coat by now. I'd be grateful for advice from your experience? Is there something else I could try? Thanks.

    Labradors only moult twice a year; for 6 months in spring, and for 6 months in autumn :D
    Sorry, not helpful, but labs do moult a lot. Good quality food and daily brushing will reduce it somewhat.

    I've also found swimming helps deal with the fallout. But I still vacuum twice a day

    Our first dog was a lab and oh my gosh I was so shocked by the amount of the pet hair around our house. The funniest thing about it is that I mostly wear black clothes and my lab has white hair. Actually, everyday brushing and quality and proper meals can help you reduce the hair falling out, I totally agree with that. Maybe some vitamins could help too. Anyway, it’s always better to ask a vet for advice on that. Best wishes to you all!
