    Default pink face in bullies

    what causes pink faces in bullies? Is it a certain ingredient in food that does it?

    A little bit of pink is pretty normal as they use their muzzle all the time. They explore their world with it! Too much pink can be a sign of allergies but its usually accompanied by bumps too.

    They're more pronounced if the fur is white. But like Lisa said, it's very normal.

    My Otis' chin has been pink since we got him, but he also has no hair there so maybe that's why. I've asked the vet before and they just seem to say "Well it could be normal for Otis", but I've only had him since February, so I don't know what's normal for him! lol

    Hi. I have two EB siblings, my male Dozer is all brown in colour, and his sister Blossom is completely white. Blossom is allergic to chicken, salmon, grains and corn, and she used to always have a pink face, eyes, and chin, which mostly went away when we switched them to Fromms Beef Frittata. I think the all white bullies are a little more sensitive and have more sensitivities and skin problems than other coloured bullies, or it could be just that they are white and so these issues show up more on their skin than other coloured EB's. She still has a little pink showing on her skin through her fur, more so,on her head, and tummy. This shows more when she has played or run around with her brother, and then she seems to get pinker or flushed after, but as she settles down it disappears, she also gets this way if she is hot, but again disappears. I think if it's not caused by allergies or sensitivities, then it's normal. When we had the food allergy issues, we gave her a Benadryl and then the bumps, and redness would go away.

    some pink is normal. just watch and see usually some other allergy symptoms will show up also then you will know if its allergies. the air is bad right now to so it doesnt have to be the food can be environmental. just keep an eye on it

    Yea, Lou always turns pink when he's excited - his ears and belly. He usually doesn't get red other than that.
