Almost summer and our furry children start to shed. Even if you don't have allergies, you probably have a houseful of hair that gets into everything. Lucky are those of you who have non-shedding breeds. But many of us grin and bear it, while pulling hair out of our mouths.
What to do? Besides endless vacuum, sweep, furminate, brush or go camping for a month.
First of all, groom the pet outside. If you have a friend who knits maybe they’ll want to make yarn out of the fur - but the best thing is to bag it and put it in the trash. Don’t furminate too often as it can irritate pet skin. Every two or three days is sufficient. Brushing everyday is good.
You can cover pillows and mattresses with dustmite covers, which resist hairs getting stuck to them.Use a HEPA filter in your living areas and use a vacuum with HEPA filter. Unfortunately cheap vacuums won’t do the job. Use a slightly damp cloth when you dust to more effectively remove the hairs.
For pets with short hair that shed a lot, try duct tape on upholstery and rugs that are flat. It works really better than anything. If your pet will tolerate it you can use a pet hair removal roller directly on them, or even the vacuum, but most don’t appreciate that kind of grooming.
The best thing to do, make a large pitcher of margaritas, or whatever it is you love, relax, cuddle up with your pet and remember the shedding will stop in a month or so.
