    Default Spots on Tongue, Should I be concerned?

    Just noticed this and am wondering if anyone has seen this before.

    First thing I thought of was an injury, broken capillaries under "skin" of tongue. Of course it is holiday weekend Are there any other symptoms of illness?

    Probably no vet 'til tues. unless some severe symptoms or unless it gets bigger. No real signs of illness at this point. I've had dogs all my life and just never remember seeing this before, so thought someone out there might be familiar with this particular condition.

    Never seen that before either. The article I posted has some good info... hopefully it is just viral and it will clear up on it's own, but I'd be seeing my Vet as soon as possible.

    If it is not raised did he get into a red marker or something with a red dye?

    They almost look like burns.

    My guess is burns too. One of my dogs got a frostbite burn a couple of winters ago and it looked similar.

    Since it's been about 80 at sunrise, I can't imagine frostbite, and we don't cook his food, so can't figure out how he could have been burned. If my vet is open tomorrow, will send the photos to him then. We are in for yearly shots on Saturday, so if he doesn't think it's serious, we'll wait 'til then but if we can get in earlier, will go ahead and get the shots and all early.

    Does your dog eat ice cubes? Could have stuck to his tongue.
