Purple Blister on Dog Prepuce

I have a 4yr old neutered Chihuahua that I found has a purple/blood like blister on the top of his prepuce just on the outside of the opening to his penis in the hair area. I very gently squeezed it and maybe a tiny bit of puss came out just below the purple area, but no blood. It looks like a blood blister we get when we’ve injured our finger. I’ve just left it alone after I did that. It doesn’t appear to cause him pain. I called my vet, but he can’t see him until next week. Should I be concerned about this? I took a photo of it, if you would like to see it.

There are a few possibilities for a lesion like this on your dog. It may be an infection of a hair follicle, a benign skin growth, or a malignancy like hemangiosarcoma. It definitely needs to be seen by your veterinarian. Until your appointment keep the lesion clean twice daily with a skin antiseptic such as chlorhexidine or betadine
