Well, I don't really have an answer for that particular question. But I'm moving your thread for you to the health and nutrition section as the Support and Feedback section is for issues pertaining to the website or your personal account here on the site. I hope someone answers your question soon.

I will say that it sounds like Separation Anxiety though.

Because if inbreeding chows have developed skin allergies one of which is to grass,,
Chows are also prone to a type of skin cancer, whod a thunk it with all that hair.. Very well could be stress induced but if the hair is coming out to the skin so that its skin not just shedding hair then you might need to take the dog to the vet.

A couple of years ago I had a roommate, who moved in with me and she brought her cat. Welll the cat didn't take too well to the change and he lost nearly all of his hair. After about a month it started to grow back and now he's completely normal. She took him to the vet and all the vet said was that it probably was due to stress...
