we used to think it was a tick, until he played with other dogs and it got scratched off a few times. now it keeps getting bigger and it's about an inch from his eye. now his eye has a goopy discharge and a freckle has developed on his iris.
For a lot of skin growths, many veterinarians will tell you to just keep an eye on the growth and have something done with it if it starts to bother the dog or change its appearance. Well, you've seen both of those things occur with this growth...so, it's time to look into having it removed and analyzed by a pathologist for a diagnosis of what it is.
