snow nose?

i've noticed recently that Odita's nose is turning kind of grayish.

here is picture



someone experienced this?
does she need any supplements?

i've read that this can happen during cold months of the year.

FYI it's cold and lots of snow here.
and she eats from a plastic bowl.

thank you!

Snow nose. Had a foster who had it. Was told eating from a plastic bowl can be attributed to as a cause. Switched to a metal bowl and it darkened back up but never went fully to black again.

so the plastic bowl goes to trash.

i've read in local forums that kelp seaweed
(either dried or in form of supplements based on it)
is great for pigment.

i will try it.
