Default Pink on lower lip

Hi gang,

I've noticed Poppy's lower lip on one side is swollen and has some pink in it (almost like a tye-dye) and the other side is black. A friend suggested allergies, so maybe switching up her food is the best choice. What do you guys think?


The pink lips


The black lips (other side)

Thanks for any GSD insight!

Most likely lip fold pyoderma, dry it well and apply a little Penaten cream a few times a day and it should clear right up. Penaten is a diaper cream so look for it in the baby section and get the tin with zinc in it, it should only be a few dollars and the tin will last you a long time.

Allergies won't tend to only show up on one side, especially if the food is coming in contact with the whole mouth. I wonder if maybe the dog likes to chew on things predominantly on that side of the mouth, she could be occasionally nibbling on those lips.

It may be worth a trip to the vet, if Shade's advice doesn't work.
