Here are a couple of pictures of what I'm seeing. It almost seems like he might of opened up one of his nipples but I'm not to sure because of where it is. We are just worried it may be a tick.

Daniel, the pics are a bit out of focus and difficult to assess. I can't tell what that black spot represents. Please try again. I don't see a tick, however. It's an "angry" skin lesion indicative of trauma or neoplasia (cancer) however and so I want Cooper's vet to take a look at this.
