Does Anyone Know What this White Bump could be?


Here is a Question from Stephanie asking other Boston Terrier owners about the bump on her dog.

She says : “Does anyone know what this could be? Starts out as that little yellow/white bump then turns those red spots. Only on his tummy! 😞  

Does anyone have any thoughts, experiences or recommendations?

Go to your vet to be sure.

Kant bites that are healing. My Bostons get them. I now go and spray with raid yard guard, wait 15 mns. Then they can go out. We get very few bites if any now

Not a tick. Puss blister that forms a sore when it is opened. My male gets it and it happens when he lifts his leg against plants/bushes.

And the reason I say this, my Boston had a mole on his butt from the day I got him at nine months old. The vet told me it was fine. It turned into a tumor at age 9. I had the walnut sized tumor removed and a puppy sized tumor replaced it in two months. This since last November to April when I put him down. Go see a vet!

Maybe from rubbing it’s belly on a rug ..?

A tick for sure.

The white bump looks like a swollen tick. After they finally fall off you will see the red areas where they had been attached sucking blood. Do you use flea/tick preventive?

Ringworm .. Take it to the vet and have him run a ringworm tex.

I would check in with your vet. Typically you can ask to speak to a vet tech and explain the symptoms, if they know right off the bat what it is, they will likely tell you and tell you what to do to treat it. However, if they don’t know they will suggest you bring your pup in to have her looked at.
