Our jack Russell is called Sam. He will be 17 in June. Recently we have noticed his paws, hind legs and underbelly are turning a light brown/orange colour. Any ideas what is causing this.?

Our JRT had an allergy to grass and that is what turned his belly, legs to a rusty color. We cut the grass low, treated the grass and gave our pup benedryl. But because of your dog's age, it couldn't hurt to double check with your Vet.

Let us know what it winds up being with Sam. Hope he's ok.
