Drs. Foster & Smith Furniture Throw In the first segment of our two-part series on shedding, we presented ways to improve your pet's skin health - because healthy skin sheds less. In this segment, we'll help you deal with shedding from a housekeeping standpoint.

Go ahead, admit it. On at least one occasion, you've found yourself in an embarrassing situation in which an unexpected guest stops by, but you were reluctant to offer a seat because your furniture was covered with evidence of your pet's shedding problem.

  1. Protect your furniture. You don't have to worry about removing pet hair from furniture if it never makes it there in the first place. Sofa and chair throws attract and intercept pet hair. When you're expecting company, easily remove them to reveal a clean, hair-free sofa underneath. Our Furniture Throws keep securely in place on most sofas, and machine washing gets them looking like new again.

  2. Catch loose pet hair before bathing and grooming. Use a Grooming Love Glove to massage out and rinse away loose hair at bath time so it never reaches your floors or furniture. After bathing, brush your pet out with a self-cleaning brush. In between brushings, pre-moistened Perfect Coat Bath Wipes are an excellent way to "pet" loose hair away while conditioning your pet's coat at the same time. Simply dispose of the wipe when you're finished.

  3. Remove shedding hair. Evercare® Pet Hair Roller picks up hair from clothing, bedding, drapes, and more with the simple swipe of a tape roll.
With the proper tools, pet hair problems virtually vanish, making your home a more inviting place to you - and your guests.
