Pink Nose


Recommended Posts

We just noticed this about a week ago, part of her nose is turning pink. It was small at first but we just returned from a 4 day trip and it has really spread.

It seem to be coming from her mouth but we can't find a sore. We are taking her to the vet on Wednesday but I was wondering if this has happened to anybody.

Thanks for any advice! I am a little worried. Lynn

I've heard (purely hearsay) that genuinely pink typically has a medical source, whereas a light grayish loss of pigment (that can look pinkish next to the black nose leather) is typically genetic in origin. (And generally harmless, except to a show dog's prospects.) So a trip to the vet is wise, if only to be reassured.

I heard pigmintation as well or when weather turns cold it can casue this condition as well. It can possably be

a contact allergy to his/her rubber or plastic bowls. Try changing them to ceramic or metal if possable. I'm sure it is nothing, but, a vet check is always wise.

We just found out that Lily has an ulcer on her lip. We are treating it with antibiotics. The vet said it should clear up fairly easily.

I am soooo relieved! I started to diagnose it myself on the internet and got into a frenzy! I always jump to the worse conclusions!
