Default Does nose skin grow back?

Strange question the first time out but it looks like one of my furkids took a header and skinned off a strip of her nose. Its not bleeding or anything but it took a few layers of skin so her nose is a little lopsided looking now. It doesn't matter much one way or another to me but since she's daft as a dingbat and really needs her looks to get by on, she is feeling a little self-conscious about her nose job. So..does anyone know if nose skin grows back or is she scarred for life?

It should grow back okay, but I'd really suggest doctoring it with some vitamin E oil several times a day. It will heal better and help avoid scarring, plus it won't itch so much.

Vitamin E is a good idea. I've been putting Neosporin on it ( I make sure she can't lick it) but maybe I will pick up some Vit. E tomorrow.
