Background: went camping a few days back, dog came home with some weird black spots on belly. He is on FrontLine Plus, so we thought they were dead ticks. Extreme pain when we tried to remove them, as they seemed part of his skin, or deeply embedded. No excess tick parts to grab onto.
Some of them have recessed and are smooth now, two days later. Definitely nothing to pull off. However, two are embedded and raised. Of those two, one is still black in color and slightly raised. No inflammation, or redness, but the OTHER is bright red, perfectly circular with a small black dot in the middle. Very weird. Our dog is paying a lot of attention to the red one, licking away. This is the one that we tried pulling out the day I posted the original message. It seems we agitated it. See attached photo.
The larger question here: Does anyone recognize these marks on his skin? They look like moles or pimples...
Thanks so much in advance.
