I found a small skin tag on Bailey about a month ago, I checked it a few times and it seemed fine. Yesterday, I checked it again and it had grown about four times the size. It has me a little concerned. Any thoughts?

How old is Bailey? It looks like a histiocytoma, which is harmless and typically goes away on its own after a month or two. They're more common in younger dogs. The other histiocytomas I've seen have had the whole bottom edge flush with the skin, though.

If you take him to a vet to find out would you let us know? I would love to know what it is and I hope it is harmless. thank you, K

Bailey is 3 years old.

Thanks for the replies, I'll see if I can get him in to get it checked out. I'll let you know what they say.

My dog Barney has exactly the same thing as this - did you ever manage to find out what it was?? I am very worried and will take him to the vets, but I thought I'd ask you as Barney's 'tag' looks exactly the same.
