Hello, I've had Smokey for nearly 5 years with no problems whatsoever, when she first came home with me at 12 weeks old I had 2 dogs, a german shepherd and a labrador, who both have sadly died in the last year.  She was absolutely fine with them and them with her.  A month ago I got a 5 month old puppy, and since then she has been plucking, I have tried to keep everything as normal as I can, but the pup can be a bit boisterous at times (as with all puppies).  She is eating and talking/whistling as she normally does. Any ideas anyone? When she stops plucking how long will it take to grow back her feathers? :panic:

hi, sorry you never got a reply. how is smokey now? maybe the puppy has been a bit much for him, they can be boisterous and bouncy x

sometimes feathers can grow back quite quickly, i hope things have settled down for you all :)
