Aspen has developed a pink spot on her nose.



You can see it in this photo. It's not skinned. It came a couple of months ago so I doubt it's sunburned.

I'm going to have my vet look at it during her annual check up in July but if it could be serious, I'll take her right away. Any thoughts?

You could take serial photographs weekly to check for change? If there is change within three months I'd take Aspen in before the annual check up.

Hm that is odd. I agree with Chas though. I would try to take weekly pictures to keep track of it's size to make sure it is not changing and then speak with the vet in July (if nothing drastically changes) or sooner if you do see changes.

Levi's nose is a little pink, but he started out pink and darkened over time, now he just has one little pink spot on his nostril.

I have heard of "snow nose", where a dog's nose colour changes from dark to brown or pink in the winter. Pretty common in Huskies, Goldens, and Labs if I remember right.
