Hi,
My 16 month lab, Fudgy, got a skin infection from fleas. The vet shaved off parts of his coat to treat the infected area.
It's been over two months and hair is not growing back properly.
Infact (in the pictures you can see) the affected black area in the middle (which is now cured) has more hair growth than the non affected surrounding areas.
Does anyone know why is this happening and what can i do to promote hair growth
I live in Pakistan and the summer weather has been around 40C. My dog stays mostly indoors in an air condition environment around 24C.
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Definitely an odd case. Other than getting another skin scrape done to see if there are any dermatitis issues still ongoing, you could try rubbing some organic coconut oil on the area or adding a tablespoon into his food daily to promote a healthy coat.

My mother always recommends adding oatmeal and eggs to their diet for healthy hair. Not sure if it would promote hair growth, but it certainly makes the coat shine.

I wonder if the regrown portion is winter coat because of the air conditioning?
