Snow nose, or something else?

These two spots appeared on my dog's nose and have gotten more noticeable over the past month or so. At first I thought it was snow nose but I've never seen that look like this before. Does anyone know what it is?

I can't see any spots?


if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.

Oh yes I see now, I thought that was just shine.

Don't know, sorry. GSDs should have only black noses with no discolouring, if you are concerned I would mention this to your vet. I don't have any experience with the cold/snow so I'm not sure what you mean by snow nose, unless this is similar to freezer burn that you can get with foods in the freezer not packaged properly?

Sorry, not much help to you, I'm sure someone else will reply to you

Maybe your dog is a brown noser? Sorry, that's all I got.

Great looking dog.

Does your dog eat or drink out of plastic bowls?? A plastic water bowl can discolor a dogs nose.
