|Not really anything you can do. I emphasize - Ember had been shaved when I rescued her. She had about 3/4" inch of fur left. It took about 6 months to grow out to a point where the shave wasn't obvious, and about a year to loose the uniform length of the shave. Actually, you can see it on her profile - the main pic is the only one in full coat. Immediately under that is at the 6 month mark, where it's long, but doesn't have any natural variation in length. Under that is about 2 months post-rescue, and the 4th down is about a week after rescue.
Feed good food, and brush regularly. Since the undercoat will grow back faster than the guard coat, brushing helps keep the coat from matting up as it grows (which, worst case, could result in another shaving).
