My Japanese chin sheds so much in the month of August she is almost bald and looks sick she is healthy though and has been checked out by the vet I just want to know if its normal. It takes most of the winter to grow back and then she has a full coat for the summer when she doesn't need it HELP hair all over

If your chin has had puppies, sometimes the mom will "blow" their coat and look sort of bad. If your chin has not given birth this is not normal, seek another opinion. My chin never lost hair like that but her skin was very sensitive. It helped her tremendously when we switched her to grain free food such as "Blue Buffalo Co. You might try that. She had a few episodes with breakouts we tried steroid shots and creams, but what finally cleared her up was the antibiotic Simplecef. Remember, skin is the bodys largest organ don't let her get infected she could become very ill. Hope this helps.
