I'm going to call the vet this week and make an appt to get it removed but I was just asking around to see if anyone else has had this issue and did it some back? I'm hoping it's not a big deal.
Butler had one removed several years ago. It started out very little, and I watched it, had my vet aspirate it, etc., to be sure it was cancerous. Finally it got really big and I was worried that he would snag it on something, so I had it removed. He's been fine, and it didn't return. If Rocky's is small, I wouldn't worry about it as long I was certain it was only a skin tag.
