Time It Takes For Coat To Grow Back
  • Hi. I used the search feature and scrolled through threads but couldn't really find an answer. I just got my girl 2 weeks ago and she had blown her coat a few weeks before I got her. I wanted to know how long it will take for her coat to grow back? Its just now getting hot here (high 70's-80's) and wasn't sure if she was or wasn't going to grow it back until after summer. I can't wait to see Roxy with a full coat of fur! lol.

    Thanks all

    Hello Michael! Since there are threads about coat blowing you should put your question in one of those threads.
    I don't know the climate where you live, but don't expect the summer coat to be very thick and fluffy. You can help the growth a bit with supplements like fish oils. She will shed the summer coat later too and then in the winter, depending on the individual, climate, nutrition etc will set a thicker coat.

    Hi, thank you for the information. I actually did a search and could not find anything. For some reason it doesn't appear that the search feature is working very efficient for me.

    I will read once again on how to use the search feature properly.

    Best regards

    Genes can also play a role in Quality and density of coat. Did you see the breeders other dogs while you were there, what was their coat like?
    Out of our 4 Shibas, our cream has the thickest and plushest coat- but besides being the obvious fault of a cream, his coat is also too soft.
    Our red bitch is only in full coat ( and she looks STUNNING) for a few months each year.
    Our Black and Tan has a lovely coat, but again I believe it's too soft and not dense enough.
    Our Sesame seems to have a perfect coat- she is in full coat most of the year, and even when she blows her coat she maintains a full face.

    Hi. I agree for sure, genetics play a large roll. That being said, here are pics of her mother and father. They are both fluffer nutters lol. I just gave Roxy a bath and so much hair came off; She's already pretty bare. She blew her coat about a month ago I believe. But it also just began to get hot hot so that may play a role as well. I put omega 3 oil in her food to help with the coat and to give her more calories. She really needs a couple pounds but she isn't eating a lot despite being very active thus far with me. She's a nervous nelly but its also still only been 2 weeks since I got her.

    @Michael_n_Roxy - Since there are multiple threads on coat blowing, I am going to close this thread. There is a link at the top of every page that explains how to use Google to search the forum. :)
