Why does samoyed’s nose change color?

We may wonder that Samoyed‘s nose has been pale pink all winter, but now it’s black. Or is it always black? You can’t answer with confidence. Don’t worry, you won’t go mad. Your dog’s nose color does change, and it’s often seasonal. In winter, Samoyeds’ usual black nose turns pale pink. This is called Dudley’s nose. Once summer comes, this change will return to normal. That’s why black noses are called winter noses or snow noses.

Samoyed’s Aging

Your Samoans will experience many physical changes as they get closer to celebrating a double-digit birthday. One of them may be a new nose color. Their noses may change from black to brown or pink. When this happens as a result of aging, the nose usually does not return to its former glory.
This is because a pigment inducible enzyme called tyrosinase is consumed more and more as your dog ages. Tyrosinase exists in animals and plants, which makes the human body produce melanin. This pigment can affect the eye color of animals and humans, and even the tone of human skin and hair (animal fur).
Although your Samoyed is already white and the coat will not change, more brightly colored dogs may show white spots or their colorful fur may fade to lighter tones. This is except for the nose of different colors.
In fact, tyrosinase can also cause this phenomenon in winter. The enzyme does not respond well to temperature changes, especially the older ones. As a result, your dog loses his or her nose color for months.

Samoyed’s disease

Do you feel uncomfortable with Samoyed’s nose? In addition to changes in sleepiness and appetite, have you checked your Samoyed’s nose? You can see that the color is a little bit faded. Their noses may not be completely pink, but they are definitely not the usual dark black. In some cases, the color of a sick dog’s nose will fade as it experiences the disease. Once on the road to recovery, their noses turned black again.


Samoyeds get hurt

If your samoyed gets too rough with another pet or scratches their face on something, you can expect their nose color to change again. It turns pink, especially around the injured area. This time, pink appears because the nose is healing. When scabs fall off (naturally, don’t prick!) The injured area should be
