I have an Alaskan Malamute who is 9 years old. He has 2 ACL surgeries and has alot of artheritis so he take Deramax and tramadol just to give you some back ground on him..his name is Bo. My question though is in the last 2 months or so one side of his muzzle/cheek (his left) has turned a cocoa color, which of course has always been white. He lays alot with his face resting on his 2 front legs, so then his corresponding left leg has a brown band on it and he chews at his leg in that area. I try washing his face, and he gets groomed so I know it is not like a stain I just don't know what could cause something like this???
