|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!|

I had a wound simular to that on a dog years ago. The vet stated it was from a tick bite. It did get nasty and the dog needed to be tested for lymes and placed on antibiotics. The below picture is not my dog - I just goggled to try to get a picture for you. If anyone has a queasy stomach, I wouldn't try the same...blech!

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!

|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.|

|Loneforce||It could be a wound from scratching, it could be anything actually. It could be cancer. You will never know without going and having it checked out. I hope it is nothing, but like Doggiedad said; go to a vet for your own peace of mind.|
