Anyone know what causes a black spot on Tongue? Fritz had one, about the size of a 5p quite far back in his mouth. Am 99% sure he wasn’t born with it ???
Was checking cause he’s been coughing for the past 5 mins…. Please don’t let him be coming down with kc :order:October 17, 2010 at 8:00 am #88076Foxisle_crazyMember
Never heard of KC producing black spots! I would think its just pigment that you haven’t noticed, like a birthmark ;DOctober 17, 2010 at 10:45 am #88077
Didn’t mean I thought kc has caused it :-[ meant I discovered it when checking his mouth when he was coughing last night…. No sign of cough or sniffles today though :-*October 17, 2010 at 11:51 am #88078
It’s rare for a purebred apart from Chows,and Shar-peis to have marks on their tongue’s is it just a round spot or has it an irregular border?

Not perfectly rounded tried for another look but he soon caught on and clamped his jaws shut little >:D
Was worried cause he’s also developed a lump / cyst on his head that we need to check outOctober 17, 2010 at 1:12 pm #88080

MMmm can’t make out which bit I am suppose to be looking at hope it’s not the big black bit on the left with hair in it think the bit at the top is his nose and the teeth are his bottom incisors
Is that right?
ValOctober 17, 2010 at 3:47 pm #88083
it’s on the right.. is a shot of inside his mouth, so no nose there.. only a bit of hair, tongue, black spot on the right at the back and his teethOctober 17, 2010 at 6:25 pm #88084Foxisle_crazyMember
Hmm, yeah that does look strange, almost looks hairy? Might it be a fungal thing? ???October 17, 2010 at 8:04 pm #88085
If you are sure he has not always had it then I think a vet should have a look

I don’t think he’s always had it… Will book him in one night this week :ok:October 18, 2010 at 11:03 am #88087Lisa33Member
Looks very strange! ??? Almost like it’s a stain. I’d get it checked christine. Hope you get to the bottom of it. xOctober 18, 2010 at 11:24 am #88088SweetypyeMember
I have seen many breeds of dogs with coloured markings on their tongues, some are congenital and some develop later. If however you are sure the dog has never had it before then I would always check it out with the vet, better safe than sorry!October 19, 2010 at 4:51 pm #88089*Nat*Member
Missed this ::) Strange looking :-\ Have you seen a vet yet ??? Fritz I mean, not you 😉
