I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please clarify Buster is "looking sick" yet he's "healthy (and) playful". The brown is likely to indicate simple fecal soilage accumulating in a skin fold or perhaps you're seeing anal gland secretion accumulating in that area. If the skin is normal after cleanse away the brown, the brown isn't likely contributory to his "looking sick".Please respond with clarification, additional information and further questions or concerns if you wish.
