Hello! So earlier this afternoon I had noticed this black spot on Zoey's hind leg that hadn't been there the day before. There's hair loss around the area.. I had noticed this past Thursday that she had licked her entire hind leg, however at that time I hadn't notice the spot. Other than that, she hasn't licked the area nor does she limp. She's still just as playful and doesn't act any different. Whenever we touch the area, she doesn't seem bothered by it either.
Could this possibly just be a bruise and nothing more serious? We plan on monitoring the "spot" for the next couple of days...

It would be better to let the vet make the decision whether or not something is wrong, at least from my perspective.

I would go to the vet, i doesnt look like a bruise to me. But Bruises can be very very serious in dogs. Dogs dont bruise like people do, so when they do its usually not a good sign.
