Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I mentioned in other posts that we had to shave a small patch on the back of novas right hind leg because of a cut, it's fine now, but just wondering how long it usually takes for hair to fully grow back? It's growing but im curious to have a frame of reference as to what to expect.

Hi, well Arya had to get a couple of stitches for a small cut also a while back, she had coverage on the whole area after approx 2 weeks but almost 2 months later the under coat is not finished coming back just yet, but nearly there.

The majority of the the hair will be back after around 6 - 8 weeks, but the thick hair underneath can ale a little longer to completely fill in.

I can look up the exact dates and post pics of then and now if you like.

Nicky was shaved on her front leg and stomach on January 19th. The hair is growing in nicely so far. I've been giving her organic virgin coconut oil and also rub it directly on where she was shaved. I'm also giving her extra raw egg's as well.

Usually the younger the puppy- the quicker it grows back in. Probably within 2 months it should look nearly normal.

The only shave Saphire has gotten is from her spay. But it seemed like it took a good month and a half or more before her fur had grown back to normal. She had good coverage quickly but it still looked a little short/thin until about a month and a half.
