Hi, I am new to the group. I have a yellow lab who is also my retired seeing eye dog. His name is Champ and he is almost 11 years old. About 7 months ago my boyfriend mentioned his once pink belly has turned completely black and almost looks and feels like leather. I often find champ licking his belly too. Is this normal?
No, I doubt it. Take him to see the vet. My first lab lived to 13 and he never had that happen.
Gracie's belly changes from pink to black. 3 years old perfect health.
i had a yellow boy who had a pink belly and it changed color. and he lived till nearly 13.
The leathery comment is what sounds concerning.
