hair not growing back?

Well once again I have another question about Duke...Most of you probably think I dont even need a dog lol, but i assure you he is very well blessed to be in this home!!

Anyway, most of you know that he had sarcoptic mange about a month and a half ago. well all of that is gone now since he got the shots and took his cephelexin, anyway the only problem is now is its taking forever to get his hair back on his front legs half way up in the middle where that bone is. I cant remember what you call it.

Anyway if anyone knows anything i can put on his legs to make it start growing back i would greatl y appriciate it!! Thanks alot

Re: hair not growing back?

If I recall from the last IV that the dogs had -- it took forever for their hair to grow back.

Re: hair not growing back?

Oh, dont put anything on it!! There is no Rogain for dogs!! Unfortunately, its seems like the legs and neck are the slowest places to regrow hair.
I shaved my Ilan over her jug vein because she was a donor during an emergency transfusion, and it took her all winter to grow it back!

Re: hair not growing back?

ok good deal, i was honestly beggining to think it would never grow back. and it looks awful even though its just a medium spot on one leg and a small spot on the other leg. it makes the skin really black and it looks dead, even though its soft and not really dead it just looks that way.

Yep when Lakota had his ACL sugery in the middle of winter no less, the poor got had turkey leg for a long time.

The skin needs time to rejuvinate after the mange but the hair will grow back.

Re: hair not growing back?

The fastest Dante's ever came back was when I put coconut oil on it
I did have to stay with him for a bit after I put it on though because he'd lick it off
