Hoki has a couple of these in a similar area. I kept thinking they were ticks at first!

I probably wouldn't rush him to the vets but I would ask the vet to have a look next time I was there for something else. I'd also keep an eye on it and if it changes at all in size/colour etc, I'd then definitely see the vet.

Difficult to tell for sure, but your dog's looks a bit longer than Hoki's. Hoki's are almost exactly the same size as an attached tick.

If you are in any doubt at all, get the vet to have a look to give you peace of mind.

I don't with Hoki's because they are more compact that your dog's and her coat is mega thick. But from the photo, it does look like there might be a risk of you catching that one. I guess if you think it might cause problems, the vet may be able to freeze it off like they do with human warts?

Reah has one attached to the topside of her leg, although her's is black and tick like looking, she has hers checked though as it has grown luckily its just an old age thing with her but is just a wart

Re: Growth (wart) on my dogs neck


dukes is a cream colour. Do you think it would be best to get it checked to make sure it is a wart? or i am worrying over nothing
