    If I cut off Zaras' whiskers would they grow back?
    I would obviously never do such a thing but was curious as her hair gets everywhere yet I have never come accross a whisker. :confused:
    Anyone know?

    Zara, complete with whiskers. ;) 19.03.09.

    I pick up my cat's shedded whiskers all the time. Once a whisker some how snapped in two and kept on growing. Just cut off one or two if you're still curious.

    I am pretty sure they will. I have my golden retriever groomed and they cut off a few of her whiskers and they have grown back!

    Yeah they should.

    My doggie not being the brightest spark often comes in with a bent whisker I just pull them out. They seem to grow back within a month or so.

    What is Zara? Looks like a staffieXcollie in the photo. Looks gorgeous anyhow! .....and yeah black&white dogs never good for the old moulting, you can spot the hairs on every surface, nothing is safe.

    Thanks for your replies.
    I wonder why I've never found any, after having dogs all my life?
    Must be because I'm so untidy. :p

    They will grow back for sure. I have had many dogs that get clippered right down 3 or 4 times a year. Their whiskers always grow back. In the case of my dogs though, the whiskers don't grow all the way back before they get clipped off again. I would estimate that it would take at least 6 months or more for the whiskers to get to their natural length.
