    Ginger has recently had two brown spots, one on each ear, appear, they are pretty symmetrical, and are about the size of a big freckle. They just appeared, and I was wondering if I should be concerned.

    HI Zach. Most likely it’s nothing but I would make a vet appointment just to make sure. I’m sorry I’ve forgotten how old Ginger is, I know you posted the info on a different thread but couldn’t find it. Anyway, if it were one of my dogs I would take her to the vet just to be stress free. If it is anything you would want to know sooner rather than later.

    Good Zach. I think a vet visit would be in order. As I said, it’s probably nothing but it’s always nice to be told that by the dr and then you don’t have to worry about it anymore. The one thing that concerned me a bit is that they just appeared the way the did.

    Dogs can get spots that are like age spots from shaking their head and causing damage where the skin creases. It’s harmless, if that is what it is, but I would rather be safe than sorry and have it checked.

    Ginger does have ears that fold in her daily life. She has red spots where they fold, but the brown spots are under that. They look pretty gnarly.

    Hi Zach. Just wondering if you ever got Ginger’s ears checked out regarding the brown spots. You may have written about it on another thread and I’ve maybe missed it. Anyway, for some reason I just thought of your Ginger and wondered how that went. Hope you both are doing well.

    That’s so thoughtful Dori! Thanks! I can’t recall what the doctor said, but it turned out to be nothing. Thanks for thinking of us, and we are doing fabulous, especially with Ginger’s birthday this Tuesday.

    Oh, I’m so glad it turned out to be nothing. Always scary when they can’t something and we can’t figure out what it is. How old will Ginger be on Tuesday? Be sure to wish her a happy birthday from me and my girls. : )

    I just changed the picture on my avatar. The picture is now of my 15 year old Maltese, Hannah.
