Strange belly??

5658 Views 17 Replies 15 Participants Last post by  LittleLuxie
Luxie has these strange dark markings on her belly... Her belly used to be pink and now there's dark marks. The photo doesn't translate the color well, it's not red at all but rather greyish like pigment. Is this normal?

I am obviously no vet, but I do know that at times when skin changes color it is
because of a pigment change in the dog. It may stay this way or turn back to
original pink. A yeast infection can also cause the skin to get darker in some
spots. Also dogs with hormonal imbalance may produce too much melanin,
causing the skin to get darker in some places. So really it can be from a variety
of factors.
