    Default GREEN patch of fur on face. What is this?????

    Hi All,

    I noticed today that my 20month bully, Saber, has a green patch of fur on his face. Has anyone come across this and any ideas if i need to be worried about it and what i can do? I have tried wiping it with wet wipes and cleans pads but it seems it is not dirt and is actually the colour of the fur. Saber's natural coat is a brindle and white and the green colour is only appearing on the brindle colour patch between his eye wrinkle on the right side of his face. Here are some pics it took of the green patch and also a pic of Saber.

    Any help would be very much appreciated

    Tags can cause a color change in the fur from the oxidizing of the metal. Like can it be he was lying on metal sleeping for a while? Just6st a thought.

    Thanks! I didn't know that. But we only put a chain on him when we take out for walks otherwise at home he is 'all natural' At night he does sleep in his crate which is stainless steel but it is weird how it is only on the patch under his right eye.
    Regards,

    Could it possibly be grass stain? Perhaps he has a spot that he likes to roll,or rub,while he is outside?A toy?First thought was metal, but his crate is stainless-so it's not that. As long as fur is not coming out,or skin is not broken,I wouldn't worry. A green dog could be worth a lot of green!!

    It is a stain from either allergies, or from sleeping on the metal crate.

    Hi, i don't think it is grass stain because it is in the actual fold of where there is usually the tear stains so you will not see it unless you spread fold apart. It does not seem to be irritating him and look sore but I'm just concerned if it will lead to something more serious or starts spreading. If he does turn green i will have to change his name to HULK!!!
    Regards,

    If it is from sleeping in metal crate, why would it appear only in his fold and not on his under side or anywhere else??? However, the allergies seems to be more likely but i cannot think of anything that has changed in terms of food or environment over last few months. I guess i will just keep monitoring this and hope it goes away or at least not get any worse.

    Eeeeeeee crate... does your dog sleep on the same side of green stain in the crate? If your dog tears alot a it drips to the fold I would check that out.

    With the change of temperatures at night.. it can be something in the air. Are you experiencing that where you are living?

    His eyes do tear but we do clean the folds several times each day so there are not bad. In regards to the sleeping position, he does not seem to have a set position - sometimes he sleeps on his back, on his side or flat on his stomach. There is no sign of discomfort but will keep an eye on it. Thanks!
    Regards,

    The temperature where we are gets very hot in the summer (30-40) and very cold in the winter (freezing). Currently it is pretty warm but we usually have the air conditioning on or open the doors/windows and have an electric fan.
