Can anyone suggest what this might be? I'll be going in to the vet for the annual rabies vaccine next Friday (a week from now) - would you suggest going in earlier to have this looked at?

Any advice would be great. Thanks in advance!

I can't see what it is, I'd probably guess he has just bit his lip and drawn blood. If it is my dog, I would just wait it out until the rabies checkup, and just keep an eye out for any signs of infection, pus/changes in color other than back to normal.

Edit: she/her
