1- How long has he had it?
Please give me 5-10 minutes to type your answer. Thank you.
Friend, thank you for the picture. The picture that is closest is very blurry and I can not see much. The more clear picture the small growth appears to be a skin tag; this is a benign non-cancerous growth. We usually recommend benign neglect unless it is bothering the patient or it is in an area where it has become irritated by physical damage; then we recommend surgical removal. In this case, if it has not changed in the last 6 months and it is not bothering him I would leave it alone if this was my dog.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
Not likely to go away unless it is surgically removed by your family veterinarian, I am sorry.
Please reply if you have additional questions.
Yes, it does have vessels and nerve endings. I would not snip this off besides that it will be very painful it will bleed a lot and you will end up in the ER veterinarian. You can discuss with your vet to have it cauterize off, he will need to be sedated to have this done.
The question will remain open after you rate me unless you choose to close it.
