My chow is a year old and she is itching her hind legs, hips, and tail. She big bald spots from pulling out her fur. My husband has had a few chows but they were males and never did this. The vet said it was allergies and gave her some steroids and apoquel. She was on that for a week but the bald spots have gotten bigger and her fur is starting to thin alot on her back and sides. Someone please help with some advice.
Your dog might have hot spots. Common skin issue in chows, drop the ingestion meds (until you figure out if this is a really extreme case) and talk with your vet about ointment! Might also want to invest in a cone if the puppy is licking/biting. Good luck, hopefully condition improves
