    When skin is irritated, it looks irritated just like on humans. Red, blotchy, and if they are licking, probably signs of allergies

    Yes, the pink she has on her cheeks. I thought that coloring was normal, she has gotten much pinker n even warm there before so I'm guessing that is the difference between normal pink and allergy pink w her then. ?

    @Lisabear123 allergy stricken skin is red not pink. I wish I had pics of my guys when they had an allergy flare up but I don't. I googled a pic though of a dog with yeasty paws and it typically looks like this. Sometimes the fur will fall out or thin from scratching and licking

    Hmm..I noticed my ace had a pinker face these past few days. The vet said it was his natural pigment cause it's only on the white, and not on the brindle area. Just thought it was weird. Also, outside in natural lighting he doesn't look as pink as he does inside...no signs of hair loss, itchiness, etc. just being cautious

    Didn't want I start another thread, neither hijack this one, but I would also like some feedback on this very same topic. Do you guys think ace has signs of an allergy? Like stated on the previous post, I wanna say that I do seem him pinker around his face.

    This is an excellent topic as those with white bulldogs or white and brindle like my Ace will see some pink skin naturally. I have noticed when Ace's allergies flare up then even the skin on the top of his head between the wrinkles will take on a much redder pink than normal, the belly will be much pinker and around the eyes and mouth and in the ears as well. A little pink tint around the mouth area seems normal for Ace and a very light pink on the belly but hardly noticeable

    Ace's pink color looks totally normal to me. June has a white head and sometimes looks more pink than normal, especially when she's been running and playing a lot. She's never shown any signs of an allergy.
