red undercoat

Hi to everyone!

I purchased my 3. black giant schnauzer who is a female, now at 8 months of age & for a first time I have experienced problem of red undercoat.
I don't know is it normal, maybe a genetic heritage,
does anyone knows something about that topic, please help me?!!

I really don't know what to do, I trimmed a bit of that, but on the sun light is very obvious.
I fed her with Belcando, but now for a week I put her on Royal Canin Maxi Junior.
She was in her first heat untill a week ago, but the red undercoat has apeared 2 months ago.

P.S. excuse my bad english

Re: [alma311] red undercoat

hi there !!

You mean your furkid's fur urderneath the body is in red colour ?? not really that red but like light red. Every bit of the fur there will change colour.. my furkid's fur underneath the body is clear colour until he was around 1 yr old...it started to change colour and i was really surprised....but i dunno izzit normal or not like that...but i do need to cut the fur as it can easily entangled. Anyway, nothing happened and now already 5 month by now that his fur changed colour...
