Skin issue or bruise on leg?

My 17 week old baby just developed this mark on his leg. I can't tell if it is maybe a bruise or some other skin issue. At first I thought it was just dirt, but it did not budge, even when rubbed with coconut oil.

Of course I'm worried about it. Has anyone seen anything like this before? Any idea what it could be?

Probably a bruise if it developed out of nowhere. If it does not get smaller within a couple of days you can get it checked put by your vet. These guys get into everything and with no fur to hide the bumps and bruises it can be scary.

BTW welcome @Chellelady

Thank you! I'm a nervous new sphynx mamma! :nailbiting:

We will definitely keep an eye on it and get it checked if out by the vet if it doesn't get smaller.

Looking at it closer I'm wondering if it could be a brush burn from zooming around the carpet and up and down the steps...

Welcome to sphynxlair. It could be a bruise or burn as you say yourself. If so it should look better in a few days.

And we all now the feeling of being a nervous new sphynx mom! Hugs for you
