Black spot on tongue.

Species: Dog
Breed: mixed
Age: 2-5 years
My dog, Bogey, has developed a black spot on his tongue about 3 months ago. It was a dot the size of a pencil eraser. It is now about 3 times that size and irregularly shaped. It is flat, not at all raised. No foul smell. He does not seemed to be bothered by it, does not act sick, has good energy and appitite. He's up on all his shots. His mix is,well, mixed. Looks like part Aussie, part Brittany, part Border and about 44 lbs.and 5 yrs old.
Ideas? Thanks for your time.

Dr. Marie replied:

If this spot is not raised at all, it's likely just a change in pigment on the tongue. This is nothing to worry about!
