    It has happened over the course of 4-5 weeks. His under arm and area around private parts is turning black. and now I can also see skin under his eyes has turned black. He used to have pink skin but suddenly it has gone black. He sits in the sun during the day for a couple of hours. But it doesnt look like a tan since his under eye skin is also black now. Im worried.

    We got his blood test done but nothing came up.

    What did the vet say when you took in him for a blood test?

    Has he been tested for thyroid function or possible Cushings disease?

    So I dont know if this will help but my labrador tends to itch his armpits alot which lead to his armpits having what seems like dirt under his armpits but weve tried for atleast a year to wash them out but it has stayed. not sure wether its due to itching and damaging the skin or not?
