Is this a tick?! Help!

Postby jsxtreme » Tue Dec 27, 2011 12:06 am

First off, yes I know a vet visit is in order tomorrow. Hoping to get some ideas of what I'm dealing with before then.

I was giving the dog a look over tonight, and I found a spot that kind looked like it was a hole, possible from a tick or a might. so I gave it a little squeeze and this came out. What the hell is it?

Looks like a blood blister to me. Lady has them all over in random places. It does need to be looked at to determine the type and if it needs to be removed. Doesn't look like a tick to me...

don't squeeze it anymore, it is NOT a tick but a growth. I would ask your vet to look at it.

Did a little digging around and it's a cyst. Taking him to the vet today to have it looked at. I regret ever poking around at it now, but at the same time it could have gone undetected.

Well great news. As I suspected it's just a cyst, and no abnormal cells in it. So just some cream and keep an eye on it until it heals. Mac was very happy with the news.

Yay!!! Lady also gets cyst every few months, but look different from the one you posted. Keep an eye out for more of them to pop up.
