A pet owner of mine has a 13 month Std. Poodle, male that has had issues with ear and eye and scratches therefore losing hair. Vet says seasonal allergies. She also said that the black pigment on his nose, gums and feet are turning pink. Vet says with no other problems not an issue. but she is concerned. I have never seen that in any of my dogs.I have had one puppy with food allergy to chicken.
