Sore on Dog's Chest

Hi there I have a female pug beagle cross, she is 4 years old and about two weeks ago my husband and I noticed that she had a small lump on her upper chest slightly to the outside of her nipple line. The lump appeared to be an extra nipple. We decided to keep an eye on it and it has not changed size or consistency, black and the exact size of a nipple, however tonight when she rolled over we noticed that it had been bleeding and had separated from her skin so it is hanging on by about 1/4 of the edge. She is spayed and in good health. My vet is closed for the night so I am hoping to ease some worry until I can get her in tomorrow.

It could be a lot of things--maybe a small infection (staph can sometimes appear as black sores), for instance. Definitely something that needs to be looked at by a vet, though, so I hope you can get an appt for today.

Pls keep us posted!
