Default Pink Nose.

Hi,
My Maltese's nose is turning pink.
I herd that a Maltese's can turn in the winter,but its supposed to turn black again in the summer.
Its been summer for a while and his nose isn't blacker,he does go outside at least 30 minuets a day.
do you have any tips or suggestions for making his nose blacker or keeping it from getting pinker?
thanks

Some dogs lose their pigment as they age and it does not come back. Honestly, I wouldn't fuss about it so long as he is healthy otherwise. Some medications can cause the pigment to fade (like steroids).

If it is a crucial issue for you, you can try adding sea kelp---some people say it helps. I really have never tried it!

Mine get outside so much since I moved to my new place 4 mos ago, so the noses that were turning lighter are now pitch black. I thought it was sun related also cuz of the way my Malts reacted with regards to their pigmenting. Even their bodies have developed the large mottling melanin spots from their outdoor ventures...LOL! They're my little Holstein cows.... :P

Mine have all faded but they're all over the age of 7-11 now. I tell then they have "Rosey Nosey".

Try some sea kelp powder. Most like it without disguising it with anything else.

My 12 year old malts nose has turned pinkish with age. The Dr. says it is of no concern. Ive been told it could be related to sun exposure or very cold weather.

My malt is only 2 1/2 and her nose was jet black for the first year and now it is more pink as well. I do not think it has to do with age cause she is still quite young.
I'm wondering how much kelp powder to use and where do u buy it?
