hello and thank you for using this site to help you.

Sometimes shedding comes from an ailment such as a thyroid problem so I would keep health in mind and maybe do some blood tests.

To strengthen the skin and coat you can try adding some coconut oil to the daily diet and I will direct you to a link that goes over the dosing per pound of body weight. http://coconut oil dosinghttp://sitstay.com/blog/coconut-oil-for-dogs

As for anxiety, you can try over the counter melatonin as this helps with that, depending on the type of anxiety you are seeing.

http://Melatonin found in drug stores by vitamins http://www.petplace.com/drug-library/melatonin-melatonex/page1.aspx

There is also a DAP collar or diffuser for the home that is calming.

You can get some Zymox and treat accordingly.
