About five weeks ago or so, my dog got on her front paw something like a bump. It was itching her and in fact she finally bit off the crusty part of the itchy spot with the hair.
The skin looked a little inflamed, however she stopped biting it and it seemed like the spot wasn't bothering her anymore.
I was hoping for the spot to go away but it never did, and it got darker instead. Now some hair are starting to grow back.
I attached here two photos, one is right after she bit off the hair (the day after she got the spot) when the spot was a lighter color, and the other one is how it looks now.
Her skin I believe should be a very pale color. I looked in fact around the area of the dark spot and it does look a light color under the hair.
What that can be? She looks overall okay... the only thing it could be her itching all over, but she've done that since we got her.
(My dog's name is Billie and she is a rescued dog. She looks like a rat terrier/pincher, she is about 8 months old).
