Redness?
 
So I noticed Nuk has some redness on his lip. It doesn't seem to bother him but I don't know if I should give it time or get it checked out. He doesn't seem to be messing with it but it worries me. [IMG]http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/h...oads/image.jpg[/IMG]

How long has it been there? Is it a bump, or do you think he scraped it?

My dog gets demodex flare ups and lips are a common area for that to happen. It usually goes away after a little while

To me it does NOT look like a fungus. If it were, I would think it would have a raised black spot and I would recommend Tolnaftate cream, (Tinactin) from the drug store. Same stuff the vet charges $18.00 for...

It looks like a scrape.. I would not be too concerned. Give it a day or two, maybe three and keep a close eye on it.. :doggieplayball:



By the way, nice head lock on the dog for photo...

Possibly lip fold pyoderma? Delgado had it for the first time this winter. Penaten Cream which only cost me $5 at a local store cleared it up within two days :)

He jumps around so much I just had to keep him there. Lol. He hates when you try to look at anything on his face. There isn't a bump there or anything. It's just red. I'll just keep an eye on it.

Could be an injury or canine herpes.
