I have a one year old yorkie who just had his annual physical and everything was AOK! Yesterday I noticed a little pink spot on the top of Luther's nose about a week ago and it appears it has gotten a tiny bit bigger and now where his nose meets his hair line and there were some flakes. He has a vet appointment tomorrow but I wanted to see if anyone had any experience with some thing like this.

thanks! :D [/code]

Nothing directly like that, but my boy has always since he was a pup had a dry nose near the hair line. definatly bring it up with your vet.

Thank you. I had a vet appointment last night and the vet recommended a biopsy to rule out Discoid Lupus :cry: . After doing some research I have decided to have the biopsy, if it is DL the earlier it is caught the better. When it is caught early there is a possibility it can be treatment with ointment instead of drugs.

Ihanks again for the input! :D
