Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Does the lump have a black crescent plate where it meets the skin?

Any sign of legs?

Can you take a photo of this? If you can do so and post them online, it will let me see what you are seeing. To post them, you can either use the paperclip on the tool bar. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web address here for me to have a peek

Thank you,

If you can do so and post it, I will review it for you (since this isn't sounding like a tick).
