OK, so no hair loss... but this is weird.. I felt it a while back and it was just against the skin, thought it was a scab, and then I forgot all about it. I pet Cullen a LOT, and brush him, bathe him, etc. but he is still kinda " on the go" all the time and doesn't hang out much long enough to be REALLY pet. So, a few minutes ago I was loving on him, and he actually just leaned against me and let me rub on him, and I felt this huge bump. it's shaped like a HUGE nipple!!!! Black and hard on the end, firm and pink/red everywhere else... no hair missing around it, but he won't let me take a good pic, and I can't find the camera, so this is the best I could do with the Blackberry. Due to a few issues, I just can't afford our vet until taxes come back to cushion our nest egg again.... but any ideas?
