Siberian Husky Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 4/4/2006
My husky is 1yr2mo and his skin around the snout and below the nose has gradually been turning from white to a pinkish color. I sometimes think that his hair is thinner in those areas but I'm not positive. Has anyone experienced or know what it is or what I should do/not do? thanks

4/5/06 It could simply be the change of seasons. Many Siberians have decreased pigmentation around the nose in the winter. Also, if you are using plastic bowls, it could be a plastic allergy, switch to stainless steel. If the hair is really thinning, could be a zinc problem and you may need to start using zinpro or some such proven zinc product for dogs. Try the bowl change if using plastic, or wait a couple of months for summer to kick in, if it hasn't improved or gets worse consult with your vet. Sheri
