Pea sized lump on his back, kinda cyst like. I thought it was a tick but obviously not!

Visit to vet needed? Or will it go away?!

He's just back from France grin

We have had similar on of our dogs. I kept an eye on it as it didnt seem to bother him and a couple of months later he went to the vet for his jab and the vet said it was a harmless cyst and to leave it be. Still there 2 years later, but no bigger and no different.

If worried, get him checked though.

Just back from France!!! Wow!

Will check his passport, he has some flea/tick treatment yesterday morning prior to leaving france. I don't think he's had an injection though.

It's quite a big lump, not the sort of 'mound' from having an injection iukwim, I thought it was a tick because it was sticking out so much.

I took 2 ticks off him before I bathed/washed him down this evening. He's been living in the country/on a farm.
