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?

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.

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.
