    DefaultLoss of color on lips????

    I just noticed tonight that Guthrie seems to be losing pigment on his lips...particularly on one side. It is funny that I just noticed it tonight...it is rather obvious. Is there any chance that this color change could have anything to do with doses of peroxide i gave him yesterday(he had eaten two cigarette butts). He was just to the vet last week. Received Bordatella, Lepto, and Lyme(by mistake...he was supposed to get Rabies) He got titered for everything else. Is it possible it is from vaccines?

    Here are some pictures.

    Also, any comments on these dirty teeth? What's up with that? He has had those stains since his adult teeth came in. I mentioned at his vets visit last fall but was told it was nothing to worry about. isnt' this unusual for such a young dog?

    Are you talking about the black blending into pinkish-black near the front?
    Looks pretty normal to me.

    Hmmmm. I think it was the peroxide. The color was coming back in tonight when I looked. Weird. Peroxide never discolored Huckles lips....but then again Huckle never held it in his mouth till it foamed out alll over his lips! Guthrie is such a little stinker!

    What is it you're doing with the peroxide and your dog? What do you mean you gave him two "doses"?

    Peroxide induces vomitting - her dog had eaten cigarette butts and nicotine is dangerous.
