My weimaraner getting dark spots on her chest?

Written by jemke1 on Tuesday, September 7, 2010 – 11:11 am -

My 3 year old weimaraner has never had any health problems. But I’ve noticed over the past couple of days that she has a large reddish-brownish spot on her chest (about 6 inches or so) and another on her inner thigh. It’s not swollen, it’s not bleeding, and it doesn’t seem to bother her at all. Should I be worried about this? She refuses to sleep on her bed, and often sleeps on the hard linoleum floor in the kitchen – could this be a callus of some sort? Any other ideas? I’m going to call the vet tomorrow, but it doesn’t seem like an emergency, and I was curious about whether anyone else had experienced this.

    This happened to one of my dogs many years ago when I changed to a different dog food. Lasted about a month. Never got a straight answer from the vet. I don’t think he had the slightest idea.

    If it is on the deepest part of the chest that sits on the floor when the dog is lying down but in a sphinx position, it is probably a staph infection. Is the one on the inner thing 100% the same type & color? If not, it could be ringworm. Either way, I do advise you see the vet.
