skin tags

bmmaloneFebruary 12, 2011

I have a black lab and he has some skin tags on his hind leg. The vet said this wasn't a problem. The skin tags are black. Today when we were playing I noticed a larger skin tag that was pink and puffy. Is this how they start out or do I need to take him back to the vet?

Labs are notorious for getting skin tags and tumors, keep an eye on things and take your dog back to the vet if anything grows big fast or if your dog starts acting listless once a year vet visits if the vet has not said something contrary ....hope all is ok

You can apply tag away which i used on my lab which i've also used on myself. It's a natural remedy for skin tags and it worked. It's main ingrdient is thuja occidentalis. You can wikipedia to learn more about it.
