I was messing with my dogs paw and found this silver ball in her paw. It is her back left paw. There is a picture attached if you need any more pictures pleases let me know. This is the first I noticed it but could have been there for a long time. She is a English cream retriever (5 years)
So here are a few questions.
What is this?
Could it be a tick/ should I pull it off like a tick?
Is/could it be harmful?
it may be nothing. I would call your local vet and go in for a consult I could just be a kind of blister that will not go away. I have seen this before and come to find out there was nothing to be done. You are better off going to a vet and having it looked at
