Customer Question

My 9 year old black lab has a large skin tag the size of a golf ball on her front leg. It has started to become very red and I was wondering if it was safe to travel with her in a car for a few hours. She is constantly licking it as is our other dog. Vet wouldn't remove it before doing a lot of very expensive testing. Any thoughts?
