How do I get new blooms when deer bite off the tops?

By Anonymous

Zinnias are supposed to be unpalatable to deer, but those in my yard haven't gotten the memo. After the tops of my zinnias have been cleanly bitten off and I just have a stalk there, can I cut down past the leaves or something to re-bloom? Thanks to anyone who can help! (Also, I'm used to dead-heading petunias, but not zinnias - do I deadhead the entire bloom?)
