    If he has any allergies then could be related,just before we lost Annie she had a few of the same type of growths appearing ,the vet said it was allergy symptoms ,but they were not dangerous,karen

    Our vet is on vacation this week. We have an appointment for Monday. Fingers crossed it's nothing serious . I'll keep the post updated. For now he seems totally fine and I checked and he doesn't seem to feel any pain or anything. It looks o me like is getting a bit bigger though.

    please let everyone know what it turns out to be, Bacon had something similar on him that we noticed after vacation it is seemed like dried food that had gotten stuck to him, we did a warm compress and were able to get him to hold still long enough to peel it off (sorry it sounds gross) his skin was red and raw underneath it. We put some doggy safe neosporin on it and it has gotten better. I'm not really sure what it was we removed in the end but it looked very similar to your picture. Being that we were on vacation at the beach staying in a hotel who knows what sort of shenanigans he could have been up to when nobody was looking.

    Hmmm do you think it could be a scab?? Gio had a big cut on his forehead in May and at one point the scab became thick and black, at first I thought it was infected but it started to heal a few days later and got smaller. Keep us posted please!!

    The more I look at it the more weird it looks to me. It's definitely getting a bit bigger cause now you can clearly see that there's something there. But still the fatty seems fine and happy, which is what keeps me not too worried about it cause I usually tend to freak out, he has had so many issues in the last few months that I just run to the vet as soon as something comes up :S oh my bully!

    Hi-
    We just had Oliver to the vet for, from what I can tell by your pics, the same thing. Oliver's are on the back of his neck. His are simple skin tags that are fairly common. They are often the same color as the dog's skin in the spot where they develop. Our vet said there is no worry and no issue and no need to remove or biopsy them. I'm hoping your vet will say the same thing. Good luck and keep us posted!
    Life is always an Adventure with Oliver!
