Will my dogs hair grow back?

I wasnt sure where to post this, but last weekend my dog was trying to squeez herself through some fencing and when she did that she scraped hair and skin off of a couple places on her face. I was just wondering if her hair will grow back or if she will stay hairless on those spots? i would appreciate any input from anyone that has had this happen to their doggie.

Re: Will my dogs hair grow back?

I would say yes it should grow back, from what I have experienced. But I guess it also depends on how deep the scrape is?

A few months back Kelso had a small abrasion near his eye, it healed fully, hair grew back, no scar in about 2 weeks.

Also Allie stuck her nose under a wooden fence and scraped the leather part of her nose. I put some bag balm on it everynight, but it did take a bit longer to heal...about a month. No scar for her either.

hope that helps, i was worried too

Re: Will my dogs hair grow back?

Thanks so much, it eases my worry some what, it's really not deep, it just got her enought to where is scraped a little skin and hair off, the scrapes are healed already, so im just waiting for her hair to grow bad and thats why i was wondering.

Re: Will my dogs hair grow back?

sounds like you should be good then! Thats what the scrapes we had were, healed quick and clean, superficial but just enough to take the fur off, but like I said it came back just like it was before. The worst part was watching the pink scrape to see if the hair was going to grow

Re: Will my dogs hair grow back?

My girls scrapes are white in color, she has a pretty long one on her forehead, and one right by her eye. Did your doggies scrapes turn white or did they stay that red color? If i knew how to add pics i would put one on so you can see exactly what im talking about. thanks

Re: Will my dogs hair grow back?

Calundula Gel works pretty good for getting scrapes to heal & hair to grow back. If the scrape is deep enough to injure a hair folical, the hair may grow back white.
