The bright white fur turns into a red-brown-yellow over time.
Why does the fur, the pigments or the drawing change?
Color changes for puppies / kitten are normal, since the pigmentation and drawing is not completed till they are grown up.
A good example for this is are Dalmatians, whose spots develop after 2-3 weeks.
Brownish discoloration in adult animals on the eyelids, snout, ears, paws, is what most owners worry about.
There are many different reasons for this.
Discoloration can be caused by porphyrins.
Porphyrins are red blood cell degradation products that are found in all body fluids,
as in saliva and tears.
Such discolorations can thus arise by licking the rest of the fur.
Copper deficiency can be caused by malnutrition, as well as disturbed intestinal symbiosis or too much zinc, which can affect the absorption of nutrients.
In case of a copper deficiency, however, other symptoms, such as anemia and diminished efficiency occur.
Chronic digestive disorders
Skin metabolic disorders
Altered or slowed metabolic processes through age
It is important in all cases to rebalance and support the metabolism of the skin and thus the regeneration of the fur.
