Customer Question
I have a mutt...

I have a mutt since 2 years ago. he is super healthy but recently he is showing signs of discoloration on the tip of his black nose. Wasn't at all concerned until 1 neighbor alerted me that his dog had died of a cancer that started exactly like this. :(

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the mutt?

Nope. He is spayed, eating like always, full of energy, current with all his vaccines...

Can you upload a photo(s) of his nose to our conversation? You can upload photos by using the paperclip or add file icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see those icons on your particular device) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/

I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing. How old is he, please?

Not the best resolution. I am concerned as 3 days ago it was a tiny spot yet it keeps getting wider. Its really flat, and light pink in color.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 9 months ago

Yes, I regret that the pic is too out of focus for me to assess properly. Can you try again?

When enlarged all resolution is lost. I very much want to be of help but I'll need a properly focused close-up which can be difficult to do with a phone camera.

Right now, I need to step out of the house. May be able to try again in 30 minutes or so.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 9 months ago

Certainly. I have to leave my computer for an hour or so but I promise to reply as soon as I return.
