We recently shaved our Chow Chow and we found a clear blister under her coat, on her left shoulder. As you can see, it is rather large. It doesn't appear to be a pimple or have any pus inside, and I think that cysts are usually skin colored. Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks for the advice. I did a bit of research online and also contacted a friend that works for a veterinarian. We think it is a apocrine sweat gland cyst.

"Single, round, smooth nodules with no hair; may appear bluish; usually filled with a watery liquid; most common on head, neck, and limbs."


It sounds like they are not a cause for concern unless they change size rapidly or cause the dog discomfort. It has gotten smaller and seems to be absorbing itself, but I'm still I am going to talk to the vet during our next appointment.

Here is a more recent picture.

Might be a bacterial infection or even a tick bite as it is that season

Pls tell the groomer about this. Our dog had such a cyst and the groomer nicked it, it got infected and she needed surgery
