Q. If a brown recluse bite on a dog had maximum healing And skin And hair isn't regrowing. Now what to do
DESTINI R. HOLLOWAY, DVM
A. Typically with spider bites the toxin from the bite has a tendency to damage the hair follicles in that area. Unfortunately the hair may never grow back.
However you can try to gently brush the area daily with a soft brush to help stimulate the hair follicle. And also you can do a 3 month trial of Melatonin @ 3-6mg every 12 hrs. IT is recommended to give 3mg for small dogs, 4-6 mg for medium dogs and 6 mg for larger dogs. The Nature's Bounty brand is recommended because it has more actual Melatonin in the product.
