    Welcome to the forum!!!

    I assume you mean the anus?
    What is the pigment color on the rest of the body?
    Like lips and paw pads?

    If the dog is young and just attaining adulthood it can be normal pigment maturation.
    Actually pigment can change any time with no cause for alarm. Is he licking or giving it any extra attention?

    she is not young she is 5 years old. her paws are grey and her lips are black. also she is not licking or giving it extra attention either. idk it was just weird to notice such a drastic change in color. she also hasnt been eating as much as she use to. thats the only change in her. her energy and demeanor is the same. thank you for the response. any other opinions?
