Hello,

My daughter dog's gums have gone from a pretty pink too a dull whitish/pink. Should we be concerned?

Thank you,
Donna

Yes, that indicates bad blood flow as well as a number of other conditions. I hope the dog is better by now but it could indicate internal bleeding, or a number of other conditions.

Thank you Rohvannyn for your post. I just talked to my daughter & told her to take Alana to the vets ASAP. I'll post when we find out what's going on.
