Lawrenceville Skunk Control Information: Do skunks shed their fur?

Skunks may experience the seasonal loss of their hair all over the body and the hair will be thinning. There are other skunks that will lose the air in the tails. However, the shedding will also depend on the areas where the skunk lives. Shedding of the hair of a skunk should not be of a concern if it is in its first year but the hair should start to grow back in few weeks. Poor diet may also contribute to the shedding of the hair. It the skin looks broken during the shedding, then a skunk pet should be taken to a see a vet. If the skunk eats a good diet of vegetables, fats and protein and it looks healthy, it should be given zinc on a low dosage so that the fur can grow back faster. However, since this is a seasonal shedding, there is no need to do anything.

The shedding is important and natural process to the animals and the process will allow the animals to mature and to grow in a healthier manner. However, there are sometime when the shedding may not be good. It is important to be aware of healthy and unhealthy shedding. The skunk will shade on annual or on biannual basis while the young will shed often compared to the adults.

The mammals shed the fur for many reasons. The common reason for the mammals is discarding the damaged and old hair strands in order to make a place to the new fur. According to the types and health of the skunks, the skunk may lose just a small amount of the hair or sometime large amount. Other reasons why a skunk can lose hair are health, malnutrition and stress issues. Presence of the fleas and lice will produce bald patched in the fur coat of the mammals.

In spring time, the skunk can shed the winter coat so that a shorter and lightweight hair can take a place of the heavier winter coat. As the months of autumn ends, the skunk can then shed lighter coat to grow a thicker and denser hair in order to grow a better hair that will protect the body against cold winter condition.

When the skunk shed too much, this may be the sign of the health condition. There is excessive shedding which is associated with the medical condition like fungal infection, protein deficiencies, metabolic disease, allergic dermatitis and inhalant allergies or food allergies
