Now that Zoey is on the mend, thank goodness, is there any way to conceal or improve the look of her shaved leg from the iv? her legs had grown in quite a bit so it looks pretty funny. or is it better to shave all and grown again?

Not sure if you are formthe look of long hair or short. Maybe let themhair grow over and then cut at the level of the growth. After what she been through Personally I will leave her the way she is until the scared :shock: is off my mind. Give kisses to her dont worry hair will grow. :hp

I'm with Holly, I would wait until she is fully recovered. Once she is recovered, depending on the length, I would just cut her all around within 1/4 inch of the shaved length, and then blend with thinning shears. Or something like that. About how long is she?

she is long for me maybe 4 or 5 inches. I don't plan on grooming too much, other than she is badly in need of a bath but trying to wait till she feels better. Just asking for future reference. :dk
