A few days ago my dog have been licking her belly a lot and whimpering. It didn’t raise much concern for me until today she was cry so much I had to check what was wrong, I noticed there a a small black lump on her belly and I have no idea what it is. I’m planning to take her to the vet to get it checked but they are completely booked! I feel so helpless rn. Any leads and advice would be much help.

My puppy is 1 years old and her name is Toki.

Welcome to you and Toki, it's hard to tell from the photo, but I'm thinking it may be a tick. I have removed a couple from my dog over the years, and I just try to make sure I get it out completely without hurting the dog in the process. I never followed instructions, but they can be found online. Many pet stores will sell special tick removers. I may be wrong, it might be something completely different....good luck! Should get a vet's attention, if there are some low cost clinics in your area you may want to take her to anyone who can see her.
