HAS ANYONE GOT ANY TIPS ON REDUCING THE AMOUNT OF SHEDDING FOR WHIPPETS. MINE IS SHEDDING LIKE CRAZY. HE IS ON OMEGA 3 PILL FROM THE VET, BUT IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE HELPING. ANYBODY FOUND A GOOD BRUSH THEY LIKE FOR THEIR WHIPPETS?

An easy to find brush that we really like is the Kong Zoom Groom Rubber brush. It gets all of the dead hairs out and Ruby likes the massage. You should be able to find it at any big box pet store or even some of the independent ones. Ruby gets a premium diet and occasional salmon oil and hasn't had any shedding issues (If you pet her no hair comes off, but there is some in her fleece blankets in her crate, but I think that's normal)
