Skin tags on my dog    I have a Rottweiler and we have had him for about 6 years now. She is doing well and she is very healthy with no disease or sickness at all but a few months ago I saw that there was a huge skin tag on his tummy. It is huge and I think that it is about 1 to 2 inches big. I was really worried because I thought that he was sick so I asked the vet and she said that I have nothing to worry about for it is not harmful. She said that she will only take it out if she thinks that it is a threat. I asked another vet, who is a friend of mine, and she also said the same. Can we still have it removed because it bothers us to see it.

I think that if your vet that there is nothing for you to worry about, then just keep calm because all is well with him. I think that what your vet is trying to say to you is that they will remove it if it bother your dog and not you. I do not see that as a big problem and you should only worry when your vet tells you that there is something wrong. I searched about it in the net and I found out that skin tags will only be removed by a vet if it causes discomfort to the dog. If you think that this is the case, then go tell your vet about it so that they can do a remedy for it. They are like warts if you want to call it that way.

I think that you just have to trust your vet when she told me that you do not have to worry about it because it will not cause any harm or danger to your dog. Think about it, would you rather have a dog that is really sick like one who has an epilepsy or blind, or would you want a dog that has a skin tag on it? I think that having a skin tag is better than having a dog that is sick. I do not think that it will cause any harm so just let it be. If you think that your dog is irritated by it, I then think that maybe you can tell the vet about it so he or she can remove it.
