Hi.

Okay- pretty boring :) which is good as I have a lot of sick dogs and cats today!

That white area is hyperkeratosis and a bit of fluid retention in the keratin secondary to him licking.

Not worried at all.

He will wear that down once stops licking with regular exercise.

Okay?

How is the nail?

His nail is okay just sore. Also my other dog has a bump on her ear and was wondering if i should be worried about it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the same one on her neck
Expert:  DocPaul replied 1 year ago.

Those too are very boring.

Benign (good) lesions- most likely epithelioma or papilloma or maybe keratoacanthoma

Either way not to be worried

Worst case is she rubs one of them off/partially off and it bleeds.

Okay?
