Pink Skin Around Nose and all over

Post by Tim L » Tue Sep 21, 2021 10:05 am

Hi, my 4 year old Boy Sheltie has had pink on his muzzle (around and touching his nose, but not on his nose) for a few months. Now on some days we notice his belly and groin area being much brighter pink than normal. Pink is also now showing through the fur of his front legs (not only paws). He does NOT have any itching and scratching. His mood and activity are normal and very good. We tried different foods with different protein sources, allowing time for him to get used to each, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. There is no sign of fleas or other bugs on or around him. Any idea what might be going on here? Thanks!

Hi, Tim ~
If that spreading inflammation of their skin appeared on either of my Sheltie sisters,
I would very definitely have their veterinarian examine them just as soon as she can!
~ Please give your darling Sheltie a kiss between his soft brown eyes for me.
Shelties are not my whole life
but they make my life whole.
