    Questionpink spot: Any ideas?

    Borrowed the attached image form Rangermom's thread to use as a reference.

    As in the image, Rambo has a pink spot on his lower lip... small in size though...
    It is not a swelling or hard or anything... vet says it is nothing to worry... would give a medicine if it grows...

    Anyone knows what is this about? should I be worried?


    Thanks,
    P.S. Rambo is 6 months young.

    If it's not a raised area, and just a loss of pigment, it could be an allergic reaction to plastic. Make sure you aren't using any plastic bowls or have any cheap plastic toys. Hudler got like that.

    Otherwise, who knows. Maddy lost pigment in much of her face and paw pads. The vet never figured it out. She's on a low dose hypothyroid medication and some pigment came back on her eye rims, but who knows if it's related.

    It could just be a pimple. You know how it gets when you start growing up. Boo had a few pimples and we just left them alone and watched them. They went away on their own.

    Aw, look at that handsome Dog and that very expensive Timex watch

    Anyway back to the subject at hand. Ajitesh, I pm'd you but basically the vet was unconcerned and it went away in a few weeks on its own. It was never raised or seemed irritated, just a pink spot.
