My dog goes in for a IV drip today and I nicely ask to not shave his leg.

So I pick up a dog with a massive clipped area :cry:

Any hints for creams, supplements, ANYTHING to get his hair to grown back as quick as possible :( (short haired, double coated breed)

Just make sure they are on and excellent diet. Their is some natural silica supplement for people that is supposed to improve hair and nails, but not sure if it makes any difference to the growth rate.

If I knew how to make hair grow I would make a cream sell it to bald guys and be a multi billion-aire

Exactly! Unfortunately there is no way to make hair grow quicker. The only thing I can suggest is that you find a vet who deals with show people, follows instructions and doesn't shave unnecessarily large areas of hair, my vet takes off the absolute minimum. There is a huge difference between a vet who deals with breeders and showies on a regular basis and a 'pet vet'.

lol, bald people have no follicles! there never will be any growth (except for plugs maybe :rofl::eek: )

I want to nourish the follicles as much as possible so they go into overdrive and pump out hair shaft like its an Olympic event :laugh:

I have him entered in 2 weeks, so I will play around with the chalk. I'm wondering, in theory, if rubbing Bio Oil might help. Off to the chemist I go.

In a fortnight you should be fine- it will be noticeable but you will have fur growth. I managed to show my boy two weeks after having blood taken from the jugular vein- so a nice clipped area on the neck. There was a noticeable dip in the fur but it wasn't nekkid!!

I have had some success with Eqyss Mega-Tek Coat Rebuilder

You can order it from Pets on the Park.

Has worked sometimes, sometimes not. But i keep it handy.

Another vote here for Eqyss Mega-Tek Coat Rebuilder & I order it from Pets on the Park as well.

I use this product a lot on my 2 Border Collies. They swim heaps in salt water which can dry their coat out if it's not in tip-top shape.

Also if the sea's are rough or there are a lot of boats out, I have them wear life jackets & sometimes they get rub mark's in their coats from them.

So I just apply this product to the coats when necessary to boost condition & growth. I find it work's really well for us & their coats have never looked

better. Diet plays a very important part in this too though. Good luck, hope I was of some help :)

I used to tell my vet, that if they shave the leg, they don't get paid!

I took a retired bitch in to be spayed last week and they didn't shave her leg at all and I didn't even mention not to shave her!

It really does pay off to train your vet and their nurses! :)

As others said, a bit of chalk to hide any skin colour showing, but otherwise I wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks guys :)

I'm surprised already at how the hair is already looking longer. Not that it's going to happen overnight.

The vet is a friend, and did what I needed done for free, so I couldn't really chuck a hissy fit at him :laugh: (but I felt like doing that!!)

Some great suggestions here, especially the Royal Jelly for the bitch between coats

I don't believe you can accelerate hair growth.

You can:

Improve the condition of the coat that is growing back with both nutritional and externally applied products

Use grooming products that make the coat appear thicker
