Yes in fact it’s true and easy to explain, firstly Vitilago is a disease that causes the loss of skin color in blotches.
.

Although Vitiligo is a skin disease it is not considered life threatening. Every dog is different and to this extent Vitilago affects dogs variably as some will experience full depigmentation while others will only have a depigmented nose.

There are no known treatments but some Veterinarians suggest exposing your dog to the sun as the UV rays are believed to help. #Homeopathic treatments may also be used according to your dogs health and conditions.

Here is a list of breeds that are more at risk to develop Vitilago:# GermanShepherds #BelgianTervuren #Rottweilers #OldEnglishSheepdogs #Dachshunds
