Tegan and I moved and since we have been here her nose has started to get red on top between the fur and her black nose. It also looks like it is peeling. Is this something I need to worry about? Thanks.

bigg's nose has done that a couple times because he has scraped it on something. it didn't show up immediately, i only noticed it after it started peeling. i finally figured it out when he was sticking his nose under one of our doors and it made it bleed a little. after the scab peeled off it was red and pink for awhile but it returned to the normal black-gray color.

hope this helps!

Oscar's nose did that when he was a puppy. I took him to the vet and they gave me an ointment that cleared it up. Good Luck.
