I like this - I wish I'd made it.


Dear Darcie, I read in one of your previous posts about a dog of yours that had a pink nose and when you chagend him to a raw food diet, his nose went back to black. I have a 5 year old Golden Retriever and her nose turned pink when she was around 2 years old. Right now she is being fed Wellness Core but prior to that she was on a veterinary diet due to digestive issues. Does diet have an effect on nose color? Is there anything else that affects nose color? Just curious if hers will ever go back to black and I don't know if I'm ready to try a raw diet at this time. Thanks, CheriDear Cheri, a nose turning pink could be natural. I'd say your dog is too young for that but I could be wrong. Do a search online for the words dog nose pink' to see a lot of ideas of why it happens. It could be one of those things that nobody knows for certain, sometimes it can be a medical condition, sometimes it's aging. With Bruno, it was a definite lack of nutrition. When he started eating right for his species and his body, his nose turned black again.We have several dehydrated raw foods that are easy to prepare. Take a look at the . I really like all of our foods. And is your girl getting any raw bones to eat and digest, like chicken and turkey? Dogs need bones. has the bones ground in, it's my recipe from 8 years ago. You can't go wrong with any of these. Addiction or any of the dehydrated raw foods would be a good way to add some raw food to her diet and see if it makes the change back to black for you. Let me know. Darcie
