 Centipede hurt!!

Hey guys, I fed my giant centipede a mouse tonight, and it appears that his back "feelers" are divided into 4 sections each...on the right back feeler it appears the last segmet was accidentally bitten off, does this grow back in molt? or grow back at all? I am really curious because if this is the case of it not growing back, I will no longer feed him live mice but rather frozen thawed, much safer and the carnage of seeing a mouse die to an invertebrate is not needed and rather inhumane, an important lesson I learned today... so yeah if someone could help me as to if this part of him will grow back that would be helpful, nothing too dangerous, but I am just wondering, hope someone can help asap because it is really bothering me.

 Centipede hurt!!

i just looked online, looks like their appendages do grow back with each progressive shed, what if I add calcium to crickets before i feed them, think it will help the growth better?
