I'm not really sure what this is on my Norwegian Elk Hound, she is almost 4 and has a very small mole on the side of her neck, and this one is opposite of that one on the other side. I know it wasn't there 2 months ago when we went to the vet for the annual checkup, and last month while bathing her I didn't notice it either. I thought at first it might be a tick, but since I've never had a tick on my dogs,I looked online, and all those seem to have a head or legs or something, this doesn't. It doesn't seem to be irritating her, only when i went to pull on it since I thought it might be a tick, but it was firmly attached to the skin. Any thoughts?
