Default Dog hair on the carpets

When we brought Deia home on August this year, it was clear to me that she will live in the yard, outside, in a nicely built dog cage, as my family didn't approve her living inside. It was ok during the autumn, but once the winter started, nobody had the heart to let her outside and now she is a full house member (and she will remain so) . One problem here: there is A LOT of her hair on every carpet in the house and we can't remove it with the vacuum cleaner (the brush doesn't work that well either on thick carpets). The vet says that dogs who live inside will always have this problem and there's nothing I can do about her hair loss. For those of you who had this problem, is there any way (a food suplement or something) to make her lose less hair? Or a better trick to clean the carpets?
If important, Deia only eats cooked meat and she is 9 months old.
Thank you and happy holidays!

Deia sounds like she has a deficiency in her diet. Cooking meat destroys the vitamins and minerals that are in the meat. Also all dogs need calcium which is usually obtained from feeding bones. This is very important in a growing puppy. Why not feed her meat Raw?

Feeding a variety of raw meats, bones and organs is a much better balanced diet. You can read about Raw Feeding in our Raw Feeding section of the forum. There are several threads discussing how to change your dog over and what needs to be fed to keep your dog nice and healthy.

You can also supplement fish oils, coconut oil and vitamin E.

I'm glad she's inside. I don't know maybe you need a new vacuum. My dog's hair comes up. I just got a new vacuum and the difference was awesome. Would have bought a new bag less yrs ago if I has known it would make suck a difference. I also run the roomba robot frequently.

We only have carpets upstairs & our vacuum cleans up the dog hair just fine. Now my 2 don't shed as much as our Maggie did.
