Hi any advice would be appreciated. My 11mth old lab cross is moulting really badly, is it his diet do you think or is he lacking in anything?

Thank you

Sarah Xx

By the way he has bakers puppy food.

I don't know very much about Labs, but did find a Lab Forum based in the UK:
http://www.labradorforums.co.uk/index.php
Someone there would be able to give you advice. :flwr:

I'd guess this is a dog losing its puppy coat but lab people would be better in confirming what happens to a lab coat. I've seen some really raggedy looking labs at about that age; the softer coat comes out completely and is replaced by the adult coat which looks shinier and is coarser.
