Is this a tick?


Recommended Posts

It's tough to see close-up and I can't get the photo to blow up any larger.  You might want to try zooming in on that photo and see if you can post a larger view of it for a little more detail.

I was finally able to zoom in on it - not sure why my browser wouldn't let me zoom earlier.  It does have some similarities to a tick bite when comparing to some other images found online, but it could also just be a scab.  It it super hard to tell from a photo, so you may want to watch it for a bit and then have the vet look at it if it doesn't clear up in a reasonable time. if you see the red ring area getting larger then i would get her in sooner rather than wait.  Mark the outer edge of the red ring with a Sharpie by putting a dot in a few different places on the edge of the ring (it will come off eventualy) and watch to see if it grows larger. 

Sorry I can't be more definitive, but i can totally see why you think it could be a tick at first look.
