Hello, I noticed and pulled a tick off my doxie two days ago. It couldn't have been on there more then a day either. There was no bump yesterday but today there's a rather large red one with lots of small mini bumps on top of the bump it self.

I got pictures so I could get opinions based on what is seen. Idk if I should take him to the vet tomorrow?

Do you know if the tick was there for less or more then 24 hours? Most tick borne illnesses take 24 hours to transmit from tick to dog so if was less then 24 hours he's safe from those.

What that looks like to me is a reaction to the tick bite itself. I had a dog whose skin looked like that every time I pulled a tick off of him, and it'd take a week or two for the reaction to completely subside.

Yeah I would have noticed if it was on him the day before I found it. It either got on him the night before the day the I found it or earlier that morning.

It's probably just a reaction to the bite then. It wouldn't hurt to have your vet check it out just to be sure, and for peace of mind, but I wouldn't be overly worried.
