    Hi

    I have a tuxedo male named Tux, he is usually white on his chest but then sometimes he gets really pink. It looks like he is blushing, even on his face. Then a few hours will pass and he is white again. Is this normal or something I need to have looked at?

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    Tess, what you're likely seeing is an increase in blood pressure. The better the circulation to the area, the more pink it's going to look on a pale animal.

    I find this to be true across the board with fair animals. I own three dogs with alot of white on their faces...and almost every time they get worked up, their muzzle goes red, their eyes become more pink, etc. Same applies to my red/cream sphynx.

    Kreacher does the same thing, especially after he comes out of a really warm spot, or after being bundled up like a burrito! I figure it just means they are healthy and warm :) Just the way a Sphynx should be!
