    Default Skin tags?

    Hi everyone.

    Bowser has been getting what look just like skin tags on the back of his neck. After a trip to the vet he wasn't quite sure exactly what they were but gave us Omega 3 pills to add to his food in hopes that would make the tags go away.

    It hasn't worked and after a month the tags are still there.

    Again they look exactly like human skin tags, very small but noticeable to the touch.

    Any one have any idea what they could be?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi there.....how old is your dog? Skin tags usually occurs when the dog is older. They are not dangerous at all. Just like in humans. Also, did the vet suggest a diagnostic of the tag(s)? Very important to eliminate tumor or cancer. Iím NOT saying itís that but....heh I would definitely rule it out. But thatís me. Also I have NEVER heard giving omega for tags...that vet just took you for a ride there!!! My opinion, change vets as that vet should of advise you, you need a diagnosis and if itís tags only way to get rid of them is freeze them ( Nitrous oxide or liquid nitrogen). Basically itís done like in humans. So if he/she never bothered suggesting all of this, you have a vet that just sees $$$$$$ and not your babyís health.

    I will try to get some pictures later today. It's a little hard to get clear pictures of them but I will try. Again they are very small tags that are only really noticeable if you go digging for them in his fur.

    Bowser is a little over 2.5 now.

    As for the vet, he said the omega would help clear his skin up and if it doesn't work he would like to take a diagnostic.

    Problem with the vet is he is very down on bulldogs -- always remarking about how much problems they have -- So i'd rather not go back to him unless it's absolutely necessary.

    Thank you both for the responses and again I'll try to get a clear picture later tonight

    If it’s 100% sure they are tags again omega won’t do nothing.
