|I actually can help you!
Without going into the gory details, my dog had a totally abscessed tail right after I adopted him; his tail was one large scab and, in fact, the vet thought it might fall off. He was SURE hair would never grow back. BUT when I asked if there was any possible treatment, he said, "There are several scientific studies that show MELATONIN can enhance hair growth in animals." (He then added, "It doesn't work on people, so don't start taking it." LOL) Well, my dog took melatonin daily and not only did his tail not fall off, he now has a fluffy tail again!
Meanwhile, I went to visit the home of the head of Sheltie rescue on Christmas. She has 8 Shelties in her house, and they are all the dogs no one wanted, ie most are very old, came in as strays, etc. WELL THEY ALL HAVE THE MOST GLORIOUS COATS YOU HAVE EVER SEEN! I was amazed, especially as she feeds a NON-premium food, so I asked her what she was giving them. "MISSING LINK SUPPLEMENT" was her answer. I added that to my dog's diet in January and his coat is now so thick that it made the vet LAUGH yesterday. She actually said, "I have never seen a dog with undercoat on his PAWS before!"
So, while I cannot promise these will work, I am very confident that you will be giving your dog the best possible chance of hair re-growth if you start on MELATONIN (available at any drugstore, for humans) and MISSING LINK (widely available at pet stores, including Petco).
