How do you know if a tick bite is infected on a dog?

Is it normal for a dog to have a bump after a tick bite?
Ticks are one of the most common parasitic causes of lumps. On some occasions the lump that you see is actually the tick still attached to your pet's skin. It could also be the reaction to a tick bite, looking like a small lump on your dog's skin. Tick bite reactions are more likely to lead to a firm lump (granuloma).
