Default Purple skin?

Isn't her skin suppose to be pink? I noticed this after we were playing. Or is this normal and fine? It's not hot or anything, just purple!

It kinda looks like a bruise.

I wonder if it has something to do with her recent spaying? I'd give your vet a call.

That's what I was thinking. Didn't she have the staple problem, or was that someone else?

That was Gucci. Sophie was spayed a month and a half ago. She's acting fine, I touched the area on the inside of her legs and it didn't bug her, it isn't hot.

Has it always been purple or is this new?

Most probably it's just pigmentation but I'd see the vet just in case. I know many diseases can cause discoloration of skin in dogs, so it will be good for your vet to rule all that out.

I really don't see it being too dark from the picture but you are the best judge.

It's not really dark, maybe it's just the lighting? Because now her legs look fine

I think it has something to do with circulation... Grace gets blue/purple skin like that randomly. Maybe she kinked something while playing...who knows.

I do know it goes away

But if it worries you, take her in
