Please help! I think I brushed too much of my golden retriever's undercoat/hair
Ok - so I just got a golden retriever puppy back in December, and he is about 7 months now. Well, I noticed he's been shedding a lot (started about a month ago) and did not realize that most golden retriever's "blow their coat" once warmer weather starts (in SC, warmer weather starts early).
So I purchased a furminator and have been using it on him once to twice a week. At first, a TON of hair came off, so I continued to use it and notice less and less would come off.
I then noticed that his hair has become REALLY thin on top, and his tail is also very thin. I had NO IDEA that it could make him bald underneath/so thin. He never complained or acted like it hurt. His skin was never red. But I will definitely stop using the furminator ASAP.
What I really want to know is, is this permanent?! Will his poor hair grow back? And if it does, how long will it take?? I feel terrible!!!
Ok sorry for the long post and hope I hear some replies! Thank you!
