help! nose turning pink

Milo's nose suddenly started to turn pink! Is it a sign of illness? He had massive diarrhea today too. Will it go back to black? He looks really silly with patches of pink on his nose

Do your dogs drink out of a plastic bowl? That can make their noses turn pink...

Olivia gets this, too. It's called snow nose. Here's a small explanation of it: Snow nose causes the nose to fade to brown in winter; normal color returns as summer approaches. Snow nose occurs mainly in white-coated breeds; the color change can become permanent in older dogs. It is not associated with disease.

They drink out of ceramic bowls. It's not brown but really pink...

Cali has a pink nose. I think her pigment didn't come in or that she lost it after the first winter. She is extremely healthy. and we think she's cute!

Maybe he scraped it on something?

I think that's very unusual. I would take him to the vet just to be safe.

That is very odd. Time for a vet visit!

The top part looks like a scrape. I had a dog years ago that kept trying to get out of his crate and scraped his nose raw. Took the black right off. It looked just like when humans pick a big scab and you see the pink meaty unhealed stuff underneath.
