Blanketback Are you positive that it isn't a ruptured nipple? That's what I thought, seeing the picture. My pup did that to one of his, either by scratching it or getting it hurt running through brush. My vet said it was nothing to worry about - not that you'll take that as an "all's well" or anything. Please let us know what your vet says. Good luck, I hope it's nothing!

ayoitzrimz Thanks everyone for the replies so far. Sorry to ask the same question again but wondering if someone has seen something like this in the past? I checked all the sites that list the different types of growths/tumors in dogs and while most are benign I couldn't find anything that looks like this.

Any advice will be much appreciated!

Thanks

trcy When my dog had sores on his stomach and under his arms I went to a vet. You can also get the Merck veterinary book if you and to try and self diagnose.

RiverDan Obviously you're going to a vet, and I'm no pro. But it looks like a standard wound. Maybe he got caught on a stick or something.

You are right. hopefully one of these vet people can help you out. One good thing though, is with us answering you in here. It wont get buried and not seen. As I said before I hope all is good with einstien, and I want to know what it is too. Stuff like this can be scary. I know I would be freaking.
