My 10 year old chihuahua is having discoloration on the top

Customer Question

my 10 year old chihuahua is having discoloration on the top of her paws and on her face. She is a golden color and the spots appearing are white. should I be worried?
JA: It's hard to know for sure. The Veterinarian will figure it out.
Customer: Also I have an 8 week old puppy. Would it be safe for them to stay together or should I sepreate teh puppy from her until she gets checked?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: No just the white spots.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

In regards ***** ***** question, as long as there is no hair loss, itching, or skin changes, we'd not be worried about this at her age. Often dogs will develop lightening and whitening of the fur in these areas just as we can go grey with age. So, without those other signs we'd not be worried and there would be no reason to separate these two.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
