Shedding Problems and Resolutions
This subject must be approached with proper assessment practices. This being because there can be many different forms, degrees, and causes - from the very basic to the most complex issues involved. This page speaks only to the basic issue of general shedding, in otherwise healthy dogs or cats.
Shedding in dogs or cats can have many factors, but is highly related to the condition of the hair follicle; the weaker the health of the hair follicles, the greater the shedding problem. Some dogs, or cats, are more prone to shedding by the nature of the breed; however, it has been our experience that all can achieve improvement - up to the optimum of virtually no shedding.
The most probable cause of typical shedding problems will be due to the body's critical metabolic and antioxidant mechanisms not functioning anywhere near optimum capability due to inadequate or improper nutrition. The build-up of toxins and free-radical damage in cell structures of the body is a major contributor. However, a more direct element involved would be the lack of, or poor condition of Synovial Fluid within the body - a highly important factor in the health and condition of the hair follicles.
THE MAJOR POINT:
Nutrition factors are a HUGE part of the problem, and therefore a huge part of the fix - from two different directions.
- First, your pets body needs and craves 'live nutrition' as found in the NZYMES Antioxidant supplements you see to your left. This kind of resource provides powerful Antioxidant support to help the body not only clear the toxins and free radicals, but to build and manage the highly important Synovial Fluid - needed for healthy Lanolin levels in the hair follicles (as well as properly lubricated and functioning joints).
Second, a proper type and quality of the main nutrition source - dog or cat foods - is needed to help the body get daily amounts of proper basic nutrition as needed by your dog or cat. These pets are carnivores, and as such REQUIRE a normal diet made up of a considerable amount of actual MEAT! Premium quality pet foods, as recommended by Nzymes, contain (as a first ingredient) 22 to 30 percent Meat, in the form of a Meat-Meal. Most popular-brand foods found on the shelves of your larger stores use meat substitutes - such as corn gluten meal, wheat gluten meal, or just simply ground up corn. These grains cannot give your pet the kind of proper nutrition to sustain anything that resembles optimum health. Remember - "you are what you eat".
So, if looking for answers to your pet-shedding problems, we expect you will be surprised and pleased by the results you will see by adding a simple supplement to the diet, such as NZYMES Antioxidant Treats or Granules. The nutritional resource provided by these products, greatly enhances the body's ability to maintain vital metabolic functions. As we state over and over, the power of the BODY to repair, restore, or just function remarkably better - once it receives the resources it requires - is an amazing thing to see! In dogs, cats and even other pets, we see significant improvements in shedding as a result of the right nutritional boost.
If you heed our advice, and switch to a recommended quality food, the results you see will likely be enhanced to a greater degree. As mentioned, it's all about the health of the hair follicle; strengthen this, and you can seriously affect the shedding situation with animals.

Natural help for Shedding
NZYMES® Granules or Treats are products which work by providing the body with a nutrient rich, 'live food' source, which are missing from all processed pet foods and even raw-fed diets. This resource helps to support and enable many critical bodily processes, primarily the increased production of vital metabolic enzymes used to maintain various cellular functions. These primary enzymes include Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD) and its counterpart - Catalase, Glutathione Peroxidase, and Methionine Reductase. These four compose the body's primary antioxidant enzyme defense system,which perform a complex series of cleansing processes. In addition, the ‘live food' properties of NZYMES® Granules or Treats,assist in the natural production of Digestive enzymes, enabling the body to maximize nutritional benefit from other food sources.
Combined, all these factors help the body to restore and repair, cleanse toxins and dangerous free radicals, strengthen and support the immune system and aid with digestion.These primary antioxidant enzymes are directly involved in proper metabolic management and restoration of SYNOVIAL FLUID. Synovial Fluid is widely recognized as the substance critical to proper joint spacing and lubrication, it is also an essential factor in hair follicle health.
