What would cause a white spot on my dog's nose?


Answer by  LLove (33)

The spot could be a histiocytoma tumor which is a round tumor commonly found in animals. It could also be hypothyroidism which is an underactive thyroid gland. It could also be ringworm or a fungus. The vet would need to run tests to determine the actual cause of the spot.


Answer by  Jules28 (196)

It is more than likely one of three things: Either an underactive thyroid, ringworm, or an histiocytoma tumor. If your dog is over 7, it's probably hypothyroidism. If the dog digs in the dirt a lot, suspect ringworm. Best to get it looked at by a veterinarian, just in case.


Answer by  Wichita (84)

The cause could be a benign abrasion, scar or pigment loss or something more serious (autoimmune disease, ringworm, or a raised tumor). Consult with a veterinarian when uncertainty exists.

If the spot has always been there it is just part of your dog's coloring. If it is new it could be a new pigmentation on the skin, but it could something more serious. If it is a raised bump at all you should take the dog to the vet to make sure everything is ok.

it might be a disease, try to ask some of your friends or a pet doctor, they will know what to do...

some dogs just get them and can't become show dogs. old dogs get white spots. dogs eating or drinking out of plastic bowls get them. in winter some dogs get them. if it could be worms then worm your dog! these are all more likely than a tumour or hypothyroidism.
