My dog's gums are pale and she has lumps under her skin, what could this be from
She started with just a couple of lumps under her skin now she's getting more and more in the last week. Her gums are very pale her nose is dry. I know it's very important to take her to the vet and I'm going to as soon as possible. Could this be from a parasite or cancer?
Those Lumps look like bug bites. Some dogs naturally have paler gums than others. What is the difference in color from before. My bid dog has darker gums than my small dog. If there are other symptoms that concern you go to the vet. You should post a pic of the dogs mouth.
If your dog's gums are usually pink, and they're pale, you should take her to the vet right away. This is a sign that her blood isn't circulating properly, or that she's losing blood somewhere. She might be experiencing internal bleeding.
What breed is she? In my opinion, this is the result of allergies.
My dog breaks out in bumpy lumps just like this but they are not cause for alarm! I have a purebred american staffordshire and our vet informed us that this is common in staffy's and other big dogs. They are itchy!
Allergies can be prevented if you know what she is having an allergic reaction to (a certain food or grass etc). However in the case of not knowing what's triggering the reaction, treatment with antihistamine's are ideal. However speak to a vet before giving antihistamine's as the correct dosage is important!
A dry nose and pale gums however are a bigger concern. These symptoms indicate your dog may be in poor health or have an underlying problem. You should, as you suggested, see your vet as soon as possible. I wish you good luck and hope your pooch gets better soon.
She got back from the vet and it is an allergic reaction to her new dog food. thank goodness
