How Long Does It Take For Undercoat To Grow Back?
Before blowing coat
How long does it usually take for the undercoat to grow back out fluffy after first time being completely blown? My Chloe blew her coat during her first heat. It started during the first week of July and was totally blown mid August.
She still looks very scruffy and scraggly. Her "butt fluff" has grown to about 1/2 an inch (her butt was totally bare). She's now 13.5 months old and she was 9 months old when she blew her coat.
Side note: we think she may have a thyroid issue. She's only 16 inches tall and about 15-17 pounds. (She was the runt of the litter.) I did not tape or glue her ears. That's why she has prick ears.
I also plan on doing blood testing and DNA testing at yearly vet visit.
She is not a mini; I have seen her parents.
