Fur hasn't grown back yet!

Looking for advice. My two 9 month old female, DSH kitties were spayed on the 6th of December but their fur has not grown back yet. It has grown back a bit but seems to have stopped and not growing any further. You can see it on the photo of Lola attached. Their wounds healed fine. Does it normally take this long to grow back? Should I call the vet? It there anything I can do?

Ashamed to admit that I have never really recorded how long it took hair to grow back after spaying. It will probably come in time.

My friends cat had her shaved patch for a good few months I believe. I wouldn't worry

Get her some Rogaine

Seriously, it takes quite a while to come in fully. At least 4-6 months.

I had my 2 female kittens both spayed on Dec 10th and their hair has not fully grown back either. I know for German Shepherds certain shaved portions of hair may *never* grow back correctly (which is why I cringe when people shave their dogs for the summer!), so I'm glad to hear my kittens aren't going to look silly forever.

It takes awhile. Missy had eye surgery and they shaved a large spot on her side for the pain patch to adhere to. If I remember right it took quite awhile for that spot to grow out - like 5 months or so maybe longer. Be patient.
