Optimum Wellness Plans® are yearly packages of discounted services that make proactive pet health care easy and affordable.
There are a number of different things that this could be, but the two most likely things are either a sebaceous cyst – which is a blocked oil duct on this skin, and the other is something called a comedone – which is the fancy doctor word for a blackhead.
There are 2 things that I would watch out for though. One is that either one of these things can come back and especially in a young dog can be an earlier indicator of something more serious (especially the comedones). The other thing I would be at least a little worried about are some of the other things that this could be if it isn’t a cyst or a comedone. The bottom line is that giving your veterinarian a chance to look at it, and anything else going on with your pet, is the safest and best way to move forward.
