Hi, I’ve noticed a small sort of skin tag at the base of my dogs neck - it’s hanging off at one point rather than a small lump and it’s very small

(pictured - sorry it’s not great she was moving a lot) she’s a jack russell and 10 years old, she also has a similar one on her toe which seems to be a bit more dry? Just wondering if it’s something worth worrying about? Thanks

Have your Vet check to be sure, but ours has tag like warts, she started growing at about age 10, She is now 11.5. Vet doesn't want to do anything with them, unless they bother her, which they are not.

Skin tags are made of fibrous tissue and collagen protein. These fibrous tissues are a common component of the body, and contain the body's systems. The cells responsible for the production of the fibers that make up these connective tissues are called fibrillates. And if these cells are excessive, they may grow closer to the skin or to the skin gradually.

Recently I've found a skin tag on my dog's neck, that really preoccupied me, even tho he wasn't licking it. It looked not very good to me. In Australia to pay a visit to the vet, costs somewhere like $75, and since I was having a hard time, I decided to look on the internet for a safe way for dogs to remove it, I was really nervous about that, till I found this blog about pets' skin tags and prohibited actions, where was a described a skin tag remove, step by step, and the reasons of appearing at the dogs (it is something about the water, I don't really remember). In the final I risked removing it from my dog's neck, it was hard for me mentally, but it was easy actually, and my dog didn't feel much
