Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. Thank you for your question about Snowy. Can you post a picture of this so I can see what you're seeing? That may help out quite a bit.
Darn. Can you try that again? All I can see is what is typed above.
I'm currently not set up to handle phone calls. If you want I can opt out for another expert to step in if they can? Sometimes positing a picture is hard. Seeing what you're seeing is going to be important.
There must again be some problems with the system. All I'm see is what is posted above. The paper clip icon can be used to attach photos here.
Very good job on the photos!! Snowy looks very intrigued by the camera. That is interesting! Is she somehow getting into some soot or dirt? If you take a damp white towel and rub that area does it come off or stain the towel? It looks like staining from things from the environment.
How long has it been there? Did it all appear at once? Did it slowly appear? Is she licking or rubbing at it?
I'm sorry for my delay. I had to get my son to soccer practice. That is good that she's not bothered by it. My suspicion is it ia something that she got into that caused this staining. As long as it isn't spreading and it isn't bothering her, I would hope it lessens / fades within a day or so. Could it be some oil or dirt or stain?
This doesn't look like an infectious situation. Flea problems don't typically show like this. My guess is something environmental that has gotten into the bridge of the nose.
You could give this a couple days to see if resolves. It doesn't seem like a critical situation. As far as the need for fish oil or prebiotics, most of the time these aren't needed. Cats can be a challenge to take any medications so adding these into the diet may throw them off and make them not eat as well. I would worry that the giving of them most likely won't provide much benefit and most likely stress them out.
