I know the topic was going on about our beagles changing colors, but has anyone had there beagles nose change color?

I was looking at Jasmine's nose and its turning from black to either a grey or brown.

Is this normal?

Abby's nose seems to have done gone from black to brownish.

I know for a "true" red & white beagle they're suppose to be liver colored so I thought maybe that's what is happening. I have no idea though.

Lemons and Bricks have a "brick" nose, that is, a pink nose (and green eyes!)..
However, they are born with their pink nose.
All other beagles have a black nose, some darker than others.
3 things can make their nose pinkish:
1- an inheritate depigmentation. It usually affects the nose and the lips. Typically, the depigmentation occurs slowly anywhere after 2 years of age and never passed 4. It is believed to be linked to an innate vitamine B deficiency. However, vitamin supplement does not seem to help once the depigmentation is noticed. Certain insist that it is because it should have been given BEFORE the depigmentation occurs.
2- a fungus. There are certain form of fungus which makes the nose appear, greyish or pinkish. Given your description of greyish, you may want to check with your vet. This form of fungus can also affect the underpads. It is easily treated with a medicated cream, or with...Crest toothpast (yep, no kidding!)
3- Plastic bowls. Some types of plastic creates a chemical reaction and caused discoloration of the nose and mouth. If rectified quikely, the dog may recover his colour.

Caesars nose doesn't change colour but he does have a pink spot on his right nostril. Is this a birth mark? Someone told me that it would go away eventually.

Boeing's nose has remained black for over four years now. I never heard that their nose color would change. This is the first time /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

Jersey's nose has turned pink. Amber's did too. Jersey's wasn't too dark to begin with. My vet said it happens sometimes. I was told the other day that it happens to dogs in cold weather too. It seems that laying out in the sun makes it worse on Jersey. I figured it was some sort of sunburn. Amber and Jersey were/are both light colored (Amber all red & white), Jersey only has a bit of black on her back. So maybe it is from their coloring? I don't know...as long as she's healthy, her nose can be any color she wants it to be. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
