Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So within the last month I've noticed a strange growth on Danzig's chin.  I had the vet check it out when he went for an exam and shots and she thought it was a skin tag.  I've been watching it every day and it seems to be getting larger.  It's not growing width wise but length wise.  It kinda sounds like what I read in the CPV thread but he's 6 years old and there's is only one.  I do keep his bowls extra clean and we only use metal bowls.

Any ideas?  Does this seems like a skin tag?

Well, it doesn't look like Dizzy's puppy warts did, they were round and pink, and he had them all over his lips. If it's not spreading and if Wyatt doesn't have any, I doubt its the warts. They are super contagious!

I checked Wyatt too in case it was bacterial and nope, nothing. I just didn't think skin tags grew.

I'm not sure. I remember growing up our golden had something like that on his chin. It would grow a bit, then inevitably he'd scratch it on something, it would bleed, heal up and eventually fall off. Then come back a while later. I always thought it was just an old man wart type thing with him. It never really seemed to bother him.

Yeah it's definitely not bothering him at all. It's just kind of odd to look at for us. And he is getting older...

That looks like the skin tags that Lulu gets. Cockers are really prone to them, they're harmless.

That's good to hear. I don't need another vet visit.
