Re: Black skin & hair loss

Nancy,
I posted as soon as I saw the improvement. I agree with you...we should all share our information on our chows. I will post more as she grows more hair. Her chest was almost completely bald. It now has hair growing back.

She had a cracked tooth, so vet pulled it and cleaned her teeth while she was out. Ling Ling is eating good and as playful as ever. She will be 10 in December. Wi...
