Have you ever seen a skin tag on your dog? Skin tags on dogs are fairly common. Skin tags are soft, fleshy growths of extra skin that can appear on your dog. They’re not more than a few mm in length and can be circular or flat.
When you first see a skin tag on your dog, you might panic. But calm down! You can actually treat these skin tags at home, and you can even prevent them. Some skin tags won’t even bother your dog, so you don’t need to remove them!
If, however, the tags are getting caught on things, you may want to remove them so that they don’t rip or become infected.
The following instructions teach you how to remove a skin tag at home. You should only use this method for small skin tags that are already hanging on loosely and that are not on sensitive areas such as the eyelid. In any other cases, you should visit the vet instead.Continue reading
