Pink spot.

Food, Fitness and how to keep them healthy.

Eh, kind of an odd question I guess.

Umah has dark/black pigmented skin on her face. Over the last couple months I've noticed that the fur on her chin is turning gray, and tonight I noticed a very bright pink spot, on her chin just below her lip. It wasn't there a couple weeks ago and there hasn't been any wounds there, so I don't believe its fresh scar tissue.

I'm going to try to get her into the vet to have it checked out on Thursday, but I just wanted to see if there was anyone who might have a thought on what it is.


The spot isn't raised or anything, its just odd. I'll see if I can get a picture of it.
Love me, Love my dogs.

can you get a picture? It kind of sounds like damaged tissue - she could have a "rub mark" and you didn't notice it.

Whenever Oscar gets pink skin where he normally has pigment its from some kind of trauma, even if I didn't notice it (which has happened a few times :rolleyes2: ), often thats how I figure out that he hurt himself. I only notice it on his lips and nose area.
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.

Shorty and Tucker get those spots all the time, from diving for their toys. :shake: :lol3:

I'd like to see a pic, too.
