    Default White wart/scab like thing

    Rumble has a white scab like thing on the back of his hind leg. It doesn't seem like a scab in that you can pull it off. In fact, it is more like a wart in that aspect. Any ideas as to what this is and if I need to be worried? It doesn't seem to bother him and it is not warm to the touch. There is no fur growing in the area either. Here is the best picture I could get...I know it is blurry.

    Just the white thing is dry but not really flaky. By that I mean there is nothing that will come off of it. The rest of his hind leg is fine and not dry or flaky.

    wonder if it could be a staph infection. Any others like that on him anywhere? Stong dose of antibiotic for a 3 or 3 weeks time will clear it up. If it is a stph infection, it is usually due to a weaken immune system which most times if becasue of allergies.

    We looked him over last night and only found this one area. Do you think this is something the vet will need to look at? I want to take care of Rumble but I also do not want to always be running him to the vet!

    Is he due for a visit soon? I tagged Sherry, let's see if she agrees...

    Don't laugh ,,,,,,,,,,,, it looks like the area that rubs on the ground while he's sitting, I think the hair is just worn off. Sometimes that area will get a callous, like an elbow. Usually in older dogs though

    I had thought of a callous but just thought it was interesting since he is only 4 months old. I will keep an eye on it but hopefully that is all it is!
