My chihuahua's skin randomly darkens on his belly and with in a month it turns back to normal. I asked the vet and they said it was just pigment changes. It has changed back and forth about four times since I've gotten him four years ago and he hasn't had any health issues related to it.

When my chi pups got older their bellys turned darker skinned. As puppies they were sort of pinkish, then as they grew older, they darkened to a dark brown , grayish. But, my chi's are fawn fur. I suspect if they were black fur, their bellies would even be darker.

My Chihuahua's belly is black and irritated causing her to scratch until she bleeds. Does any one know about this skin problem?

I would associate that with a surface yeast problem, are the inside rims of her ears black too? The vet has meds for this, you can give to her...

My Cairn terrier had the blackish tummy and her hair was also falling out. Bloodwork revealed a vitamin deficiency.
