Well two days ago I noticed a black spot on Nellies tummy. We checked it, and it appears to be a mole. It's definately new cause everytime she sprawls out I look at her tummy and it wasn't there recently. It's black, raised some, about the size of a pencil eraser, and appears to be kinda red around the edges. So we are taking her to the vet this week. Hopefully its nothing, that can just be removed.
I am so scared by its appearance its Malignant Melanoma or something!
From my research labs are prone to melanoma, but typically in the eyes and/or mouth. Also most dogs are older 10 years+. Nellies only 4!

So if anyone has any info or experience with moles on their dogs, or melanoma... please let me know.
