Why is my dog shedding so much?!

Question: 

My Jack Russell mix shed a lot, all the time. He is groomed regularly. Is it true that the better the dog food the less the dog sheds?

 

Answer: 

All dogs will shed quite a bit of hair other than continuous hair growth breeds (poodles for example). Excessive shedding may be a sign of internal illness or poor diet and your veterinarian can help to determine if the shedding is appropriate for the breed or if further testing might be needed.
