Default Blood-filled bump/blister on lip?

Hi all,

My dog's 20 months old, generally healthy, no issues lately.
Yesterday I noticed a bright red (blood filled?) bump on her lip, and it's still there today and seems to be larger. I've also noticed blood on the ball I was throwing around in the park half an hour ago. The bump seems to be bleeding. I don't think this is a spot she could have easily bit herself on.

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

That's the current plan

My initial guess would be a papilloma... however, I don't think I've seen one quite like that (doesn't mean it's not one). If it is a papilloma, by time you see it, it's no longer contagious... and it should resolve all on its own!

It really doesn't look anything like papillomavirus in my opinion.

Papilloma/puppy warts is something we've gone through about a year ago - this doesn't look similar at all. Although coincidentally my friend's puppy (that my dog plays with once or twice per day) does currently have papilloma... perhaps something got transmitted?
