    Hey i just registered. how's it going? anywho, i just discovered a whisker lying on the ground belonging to my chihuahua, Halo. Is it bad when a dog loses a whisker or will it grow back okay or what? cuz I thought I'd heard stuff a long time ago about dogs and how their whiskers don't grow back and they need them or something....but I dunno. I just want to be sure my Halo will be alright...

    sorry if this is a dumb question or something. I'm just very paranoid right now because we lost our other puppy, Kiwi, a few months ago. And knowing she's gone hurts now just as much as it hurt when we first found out she was gone. I guess I just get really attached to my dogs. And I am ALWAYS worried about them....anyways...thnx in advance for any help

    Halo will be fine:)
    Many show dog's have their whiskers clipped off and many long coated dogs have lost their whiskers for a cleaner look on the face.:) They all survive just fine.

    don't worry, it happens all the time. :)

    it will grow back and even if it didn't it wouldn't be a life changing problem.

    most show dogs routinely have their whiskers removed for a "smoother" look and it doesn't hurt them either.
