|Hi Gracie! Kodi is not 'old' but he is middle aged as well. Recently over the past 3 months he has gotten what our vet calls 'sebaceous cysts'. He didn't say they were a wart but from what you described [a lump that is gray and hard], that is what Kodi gets. My vet said they aren't harmful but like you I don't like the idea of things growing on my pup. The first two removed were pretty small in size and a recent one he had was about the size of a quarter and kept growing. The vet said they could easily be removed. He numbed the area, sliced it with a needle, and squeezed it like a pimple. Out came a white sorta gray puss, very similar to popping a pimple. I put some antibiotic cream on it afterwards and Kodi was perfectly fine.
Maybe this is what Gracie has? Kodi's vet said it is common in 'older' dogs but nothing to worry about but can easily be removed like an annoying pimple. Hope that helped!
