Puppy's paws, ears, gums lose color when she sleeps


  • She is a very pretty pup, hopefully she doesn't have anything major going on. If you are in the Tampa area, join us at dog Park some Sunday, we usually have 12 to 18 basenjis and would love to meet Miss Cinnabon.


  • She is a very pretty little girl. Hope all is well good luck.

  • @innociv:

    Now she's getting dead skin on her ears and paws. šŸ˜ž I'll have to take her in again.

    Did you call Midge?


  • Tanza, I didn't call Midge since it didn't seem urgent then, I sent her an email last week and haven't gotten a response yet.

    Mac, thanks! I'm not usually around Tampa though. I live at south Orlando.

    @Nemo:

    Hi Innociv, your puppy and my girl, Zoni are pretty closely related through your puppy's dam. It is just some little flakes or is it something more significant? Zoni had some flakey skin on her ear once when she got a yeast infection but it went away with a little treatment. Hopefully it is nothing serious.

    The dead skin on her ear I scraped off and there was blood on some parts afterwards. On her paws it is light flaking, it doesn't look serious like frostbite looks or anything, but seems odd for a puppy. She also bites at her paws.


  • Maybe she is having an allergic reaction to something? Has there been a change in food or anything recently?

    Almost sounds like a food allergy? Have you changed the food? And chance she could have been bitten by a spider or some other critter? Red Ants?


  • Or maybe some new cleaning products, something new in/on the carpet/floors?


  • She's alright. The dead skin was just from some infection.

    And Midge says the losing color when they sleep happens with some of them, especially puppies.


  • Glad everything is ok with your little Cinnabun.


  • Whew! Good to hear that all is okay now.
