    DefaultNail discolouration/growth

    Jenica has been licking her feet quite a bit and we have noticed that the base of her nails is showing a dark colour. It seems not to be quite a discolouration, but more like a growth that can be scratched off (see dark colour at the base of the nail).



    Any ideas what could be causing this and what to do about it? Thank you!

    Looks normal to me.

    I wonder if the darker color is caused by her licking. A yellow dog's fur will turn brown in between the toes if the dog licks it constantly.

    Looks normal to me also. Keep an eye on it, and any potential nail growth issues. But, from the picture, there are no growth issues associated with the difference in nail color.
