Hey guys- The other day I pulled a tick off of my dog. Tonite I noticed a raised bump (about the size of a pencil eraser) with a little dot in the middle. I think this is the same area I pulled the tick from. Is this normal or could it be an infection? Any information is greatly appreciated!!

First of all, I wish I was somewhere that had a climate that would allow a tick to live. It's coming though. When you pulled the tick off, how did you pull it? You could have left the head in the dog; so I would take her to the vet, just in case it was a deer tick (Lyme disease) and make sure it's just the residual irritation of the tick bite.
