Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

How big is this blister?

Is it hard or soft?

Could he have touched something hot?

Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

As long as it's not painful and isn't bothering him, then if this were me, I'd just monitor it and see if it changes.

Dogs, just like people, can get little skin tags or other blemishes. Unless they're painful, hard to the touch, or if it gets bigger in a short amount of time, we usually just have people monitor the area.

That being said...if it looks like he becomes painful, or if it gets bigger then you should have your vet take a peek at it, but odds are it's nothing serious.

I hope this helps.
