Question: 
I have an 8 month old boxer which has starter shedding extremely bad over the last 4 months. He has a very sensitive stomach but seems to do well on Purina One Puppy Formula Food. We tried adding salmon oil to his food to reduce shedding and it really helped but it started giving him diarrhea. Is there something else I can give him to help with the shedding that won't upset his stomach?
Answer: 

There are a variety of products that can help with shedding. Since your dog has a sensitive stomach, I recommend consulting with your veterinarian before trying any supplements.
