has anyone ever known of their pry to have problems with their front legs turning a orange/brown color...and the skin underneath appears pink...we thought she had just dug into something but after a week it didnt come clean on its own...so I put her in the tub and its not coming off..and her skin appears pink...wondering if its an alergy..she is one and its the first time its ever happened like this...plus she normally likes a bath and would always jump right in..this time she had to be made to get in the water and acted like she wasnt liking me scrubbing it..like maybe its tender. :(

orangey spots
by: Anonymous

Our Pyr has these also, on his elbows. The pinkish skin underneath is a pigment and so cannot be washed off. Do not worry, do not bathe, do not scrub these areas; if you do, you will cause a problem to develop that isn't there now. Our Labradors have all developed callus' on their elbows. It's normal. I think of the orangey spots as the Pyr version of this very common phenomena.
If you're really worried, and if your dog is licking or scratching or chewing on these areas it's always best to have your dog's spots checked by a vet. Final word.

I would advise you get your dog into a natural path veterinarian for a checkup.

Here are a couple of good resources:

you can lick that
by: Ed A from NJ

It may be she is licking herself a lot. When they get nervous or upset they can get ubsessed with licking. It can get so bad they create what is called a licking tumor. You may need to see a vet she may need doggies Zanex.you can't wrap then because they just rip it off. I think a trip to the vet may be in order.
