My 2 year old dog broke off a whisker while we were playing tonight. Do they grow back? If so, do they grow back quickly? What purpose do they serve? It was one of the thick, coarse ones around the mouth (she's a short-haired dog)
There ae no stupid questions. It will grow back, just any hair will row back. , so there's no need to worry qbout it. As to how it takes, I couldn't tell you, but I'm guessing it shouldn't take very long.
Hahahaa yeah they grow back. And they grow back fast too! I clip my poodles faces so their whiskers get shaved off too and not long after a haircut they start looking like a mouse with lots of little whiskers growing out.
It will grow back, I wouldn't worry. Besides one whisker isn't going to be a problem. Whiskers are more for in the dark to avoid banging into anything. Becasue if there whiskers hit anything they can move their head away to aviod banging into it. A blind dog for example, would need his whiskers all the time.
