Hi - new here and hoping for some help.

My Bengal, Charlie, has developed this small dark bump on the back of his neck - picture attached.

After a few google searches my results have been inconclusive.
It is not painful or leaky. I don't believe it came from a scratch - although it is a possibility.

I would send the pic to my vet office, but the veterinarian I have a history with just recently left and now they would simply say, "bring him in".
He needs to be given sedatives in order to go to the vet - so that is a last resort.

Thank you for any help.
Matt

I've had both dogs and cats pop up with similar bumps, I just keep an eye on them if they grow quickly or change shape I take them in. It's usually a blood blister from being pinched (our cats will pinch each other while play fighting) and it goes away on it's own after a couple of weeks.

Thanks for the help!

I have been keeping an eye on it and I am 99% sure it has not gotten any bigger, however it has been around for a couple weeks
with no sign of abating.

I will just monitor it for now as you suggested.

Has Charlie gotten any shots lately? One of my boys is allergic to his yearly shots and last time he got a lump on the back of his neck. It took several weeks to go away but was harmless.
