I have noticed that the skin on my 9 year old male Shuh Tzu has been darkening. Should I be concerned? He's beam is normal. He has one small bump on his skin that is growing slowly. I've been gradually moving him to a raw diet with organ meat. He is otherwise healthy.

Hi Teresa!

No, the darkening skin is not usually a cause for concern since his BEAM is normal.

Most commonly it is the response by the skin to chronic allergic skin stuff.

Does he have allergies?

He must. I noticed that the skin around his left eye is very red today. He's not itchy or anything.
