Mango’s first major shedding

About a month after we got Mango, he started shedding. While he was shedding, Mango was scratching himself crazy. It took probably three weeks before he completely shed his inner coat.

Mango started shedding again about a month ago. Smelly and i started noticing it after we took him for a bath and found ourselves coated all over with a layer of Mango’s hair.

Initially, i thought he would be done shedding by the fourth week. I was so wrong. Mango is still shedding and excluding the hair he shed during the two baths we gave him and a “full-service” bath given by our breeder Leslie, i have vacuumed several bins full of his hair.

Just like before when he shed last year, Mango is scratching himself quite a bit more than usual. In fact, he has added head-shaking to his repertoire of hair shedding moves.
