Shaved Pom's Coat Isn't Growing Back Well

When I adopted my two Poms in June, I had to have them shaved completely because they were terribly matted and there was no way around it. My female is starting to get her wonderful coat again, but the male is just getting hair on his back ; his legs and part of his rump have hair. Is this the way it sometimes grows back? Can someone help me ease my mind? I am terribly worried that my "Rusty" will not have all his lovely coat as before. Thanks.

I knew a woman 2-3 years ago who had a pom with a ratty looking coat; the dog was old, had been checked by a vet, nothing wrong. She looked at skin closely, thought she saw slight inflamation around hair follicles, started to use emu oil shampoo, and then emu oil. I came by to visit after some months and thought she had bought a new pup (figuring old dog had passed). Not only was it the same dog, but she had done same for husband (bald, nearing 80) and he had fuzz all over his head. They showed me....

I know you can find it on Amazon, but you might want to try a few other places first. I would start with the local farmer's market and the local natural foods store. They would be the most likely places. After that, try a beauty supply store. They might also have it.

Good luck!

Is your male pom neutered? If not, then this could be the cause. Look up either a typical cushings disease, or alopecia x. Usually neutering, along with certain supplements takes care of the problem. You can obtain more information by looking up Dr. Jack Oliver at the University of Tennessee.
