The Health Committee provides education to club members about health issues in the Chow Chow. It acts as a liaison to the AKC Canine Health Foundation and raises funds for research into Chow Chow health problems.

Health Committee Chair: Layla Loveless

Consider making a tax deductible donation to Chow Chow Breed Advised Fund of the AKC Canine Health Foundation. This fund provides grants for research into health problems affecting the Chow Chow. AKC-CHF matches all donations to the fund which means your donation does double duty! Contact Health Committee Chair Layla Loveless for information on how to donate to this fund.

The Chow Health Website
