My 10 year old female calico named Tabby has these like black things on her head. They are under her fur. She has one big one of her face that was bleeding but now looks like it's scabbed over. She has a flea collar on. I think that they might be ticks? I feel around her head w/ my fingernails and pick them off her fur. Gross I know but she means the world to me. They aren't big at all, like 1/3 the size of a grain of rice. There are only a few like 4-5 each time I look. The 1 on on her face is noticable though. I think it hurts her when I touch it. I just want to make sure that it's not something bad and I don't want to pay a fortune to see a vet if I don't have to. Please help with comments!
