    Hi I noticed a spot on my Pomeranian puppies neck and it looks like it’s in her neck I don’t know if it’s a tick or something? It’s very small and she seems pretty normal but she does bite the fur in that area so I don’t know if it itches. And help would be appreciated xx

    It's quite hard to see in that picture, maybe 'google' images of ticks on dogs and compare to what you are seeing?

    I have and this seems really small compared and I can touch it and it doesn’t bother her so I don’t know was wondering if anyone had come across something like it x

    I find it hard to see too, with things like this I normally do what I'd do for myself - I don't rush to the doctor with every tummy upset or spot, so I wouldn't rush to the vet right now.

    But I would keep a close eye on it (use antiseptic if she can't lick there) and if it gets worse, or doesn't go away in a week, make an appointment then.

    Ticks can be tiny when they first attach - it may enlarge in a few hours.
