How long till hair grows back?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
A while back I asked how long it would take for the hair to grow back on my boy Sasha's neck. He had been shaved there for blood work.

It's been right at five months and you can still tell but wouldn't notice if you weren't looking for it. He's a domestic short hair.

It took months for the hair to grow back on my cat buddys back near his tail after a bite wound and subsequent shaving. It started coming in, but you could still tell months later.

It doesn't sound like anything out of the ordinary.

when flash had her tummy shaved for his instine op it didnt take to long for the hair to grow back after a few weeks it kinda looked normal then a couple weeks after that you just couldnt tell, but she is a DLH and very multi coloured so it all just blends in to each other

My boy Pete had surgery back in mid-December and it's just now starting to look "normal" - while the fur had grown back completely after 3 or so months, it came back a bit thin (if that makes sense), so I think it just needs to finish filling in.

Some cats take a long time! Cammy and my MIL's cat got spayed at the same time. Cammy is long haired and her fur grew back months before Maggie's did. And Maggie's a short hair.

My Meekos fur took 6 months grow back after she had surgery.
Sashas fur is thin were she was shaved when she got altered and it has been almost 1.5 years.

Mama was shaved around Christmas after a rectal prolapse and hers is still growing in and it is very obvious where she was shaved still(and since they did her entire rear end and left half her tail she looks like she got a bad hair cut back there.) Attitude who was spayed 1 day before Mama has had her hair grow back in and it isn't noticeable. Both are Maine Coon mixes, even though Mama could possibly be full Maine Coon(she is Attitude's grandma) so they both have the long dense Maine Coon coats.

It just depends on the cat. Mama is an outside only cat(she let herself outside a week after getting out of the hospital, she had had enough of the inside, she is miserable inside so I let her stay outside) and it was really cold outside after her surgery and it only really started coming back in noticeably after it got warm out ironically enough. Attitude is inside only, she got out about 7-10 days after her surgery when it was snowing and when she came back in she was shivering and as I said hers grew back a lot faster even though she was inside only and Mama was outside only.

Jack had surgery on April 30 to remove a tumor on his side. His side and neck were shaved. I'd say that his hair has grown about 1/3 back now. I can see his scar but it is covered with fur.
