Finn's skin is different on his front leg compared to his back leg? On Thursday we had to go to the Pet ER (a long story). Anyway, he had to stay overnight for fluids. When we went to see him on Friday, his front leg was shaved and some of his back leg. I guess they couldn't get a good vein on his back leg so shaved the front one. His skin on his back leg is darker than his skin on his front leg. Is that something to worry about? They didn't mention anything to me about it so I assumed they weren't concerned about it. Any ideas?

Hmmm- could you post pics? With the exception of the Whippet, who of course is fawn and white so has black pigment under his fawn areas and pink under his white, my dogs have pretty uniform pigment.

I'll try to when I pick him up a little later from day care. Actually, I need to head there now.

Alright, I lied. I'm waiting for my husband before I go to pick Finn up. I'm pretty sure Finn would look funny to if we were to shave him.
