The dog, who is four years old, constantly licks and chews on his two front legs and it has been going on for almost a month. The dog owner feared if the mouth or gums of the doggo are bleeding because the dog’s white fur seemed to be reddish or reddish brown.
Dr. Jong said that there is nothing to worry about as long as there is no loss of hair or no raw or irritated skin. He added that the possible causes are allergies, anxiety, or boredom. As for the darkened fur, the unusual reddish or reddish brown color is because of the substances in the dog’s saliva.
