Itchy chow chow

Postby Julie-1070 » Fri Jul 13, 2018 12:31 pm

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.

Hi ,

Just wondering if you got to the bottom of the itching issue? I’m having a similar problem with my young male chow. Any advice would be appreciated- thanks

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 :)
