    Default Any ideas on what this is?

    For the last 2 months or so, Koozer has this raised spot on the top of his back foot. It has grown ever so slightly over time. It does not seem to bother Koozer...he doesn't lick it, bite it, or wince when you touch it. It has not responded to any wipes or medication. To me, it looks like a cyst. Anyone have any ideas? Going to make the trip to the vet soon to get it looked at.

    I'm sorry, I don't have any experience with this either. I'm not sure what it could be, a cyst? Or could it possibly be a tick? I agree that your best bet would be to ask the vet to know for sure. I hope it's nothing serious, please keep us posted on what the vet says.

    Looks to be a small hystiocytoma, they usually go away on their own after a couple of months and many times they seem to appear overnight.

    Interesting thought on the hystiocytoma...it did indeed show up overnight basically. Do you think we should get it looked at, or hold off a little longer?

    Get it looked at if it keeps getting bigger, usually they are no larger than a nickel.

    Let me know what your vet says cuz it definitely looks like the same thing. I'm debating on whether to wait or not. It is still fairly small, like the size of a large pea, but I'm afraid of it being more serious than a simple histiocytoma. But then again, do I want to go into the vet, just to hear him say "lets wait and watch it"? ughhh...so conflicted!
