Kahrg4 oh good! So glad it'll resolve itself. Thanks for the update!

Sp00ks Cool, thanks for the update. I've been curious.

Bequavious UPDATE: I had to take Roxy to the vet for some other stuff, so I asked the her about my girl's nose while we were there. She said it definitely looked like a histiocytoma and I can expect it to crust over and fall off in the next three weeks or so

Sp00ks Ours had one that looked very similar. One day we finally figured out she had stuck her nose in the oven when my wife was removing a casserole dish and hit it on the rack. Because she did it again.....

Sorry, I know that sounded like a ridiculous reply. She never cried or complained about it. It got better over time but did leave a small scar. I just wanted to open you up to infinite possibilities. A vet visit is the only way to confirm I suppose.

As I recall my reading, it's when a histiocyte (immune cell in the blood) get a little out of whack under the skin and goes crazy growing into a round, button-sized wart or lesion.

Do a search on google and I'm sure you'll find hundreds of pictures one of which may match your dog's "wart".

They go away in about 2 - 4 months. Zeus' histiocytoma faded away quickly within about 4 weeks.

If not, get the dog tot he vet for testing.

Yoko had one of these show up at just over a year old. Right on her nose. Had it removed and sent in. Was nothing.

All the photos I saw of dogs with demodex looked like they had it kind of all over. Is that typical? She just has the one bump.

Huh that's interesting. She's about a year old, so it's definitely possible. Most of the pictures online looked a lot more raised than her's, but some of them looked similar I guess it could have been a spider bite too for that matter. Unless it's something that needs treatment (doesn't demodex need treatment?) I'm not going to worry about it for a few more weeks then.

hunterisgreat Jäger has a similar mark right now from suitwork a few weeks ago. If it doesn't go away in a month, or is clearly infected/oozing/failing to heal, I'd get it checked out.

GSKnight Viktor's nose had a similar "bump" from trying to shove his nose into a big knuckle bone...
