Are skin tags on dogs common? I'm a little disturbed to find one on my dog. Could this become something to worry about? What should my next steps be?

Skin tags may develop as the dog ages. However, all growths, lumps, bumps and tags deserve the vet's attention during regular physical exams, so make sure you mention them. Be observant and note the location, size, any changes and if abscess.
