Skin of dog turning purple/grey
I have an Italian greyhound since 1 month 1/2.
The back of his legs near his testicles started to turn grey/purple with spots about a month ago.
Before, it was "pink". Now the color seems to be equable at this place (see picture march), but I also noticed other new areas with spots on the elbow and forearms.
I didn't see fur loss, except on a little area on the tail. The skin and the fur are soft, and the skin seems to have a good texture when I touch it.
His behavior is normal, he is playful and loving, and his weight is normal. He has eaten barf and raw food since I adopted him (various meats with bones, cereals, vegetables).
He has been treated since 6 February with imidaclopride and moxidecline (sorry, french names) (advocate) for parasites (I don't remember the names of the parasites). He is not scratching too much anymore, and not on those areas.
He also had a cortisone cream because of skin circled damages (on the "January picture", which also shows the skin that was normal-pink).
I added 2 pictures of his entire body (march)
Thank you for the help.
