My Beagle has a skin tag on her leg that a vet previously

Hello, my Beagle has a skin tag on her leg that a vet previously wasn't concerned about. However a few days ago my beagle has started chewing on the skin tag and trying to bite it off and it is lightly bleeding from time to time. Because she's bitten some of it off it I can't tell if it has changed in appearance from before. My dog doesn't seem to be in pain at all. Can a skin tag become cancerous? I felt around it and it doesn't seem to extend bellow the skin, but it is protruding dramatically. Here are 2 images of what it looks like.http://imgur.com//ygxBoGghttp://imgur.com/xoqtDEO

My 5 year old male Mini Aussie got into a tussle with my 9

Hi my 5 year old male Mini Aussie got into a tussle with my 9 year old female Blue Heeler over a toy. It was very quick and they walked away from each other. Later I noticed the Mini was licking his side and saw the Heeler ripped a bunch of hair out. It looked like a brush burn I cleaned the wound and tried my best to get him to stop licking it. It has been 4 days and it looks a little infected, also it has this weird white stretching skin on top. I do have picture to send. Please let me know if home care will be enough or if I should worry.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?Customer: DogJA: OK. Welcome!

I have a two year old pitbull, she just went through her

I have a two year old pitbull, she just went through her menstrual cycle. She's been acting really depressed, not eating her dog food, or drinking water as she usually would. Lately she's been eating grass and very little dog food. Yesterday she went off on my neighbors son and bit his arm. What's going on with her? She's never bitten anybody or showed any type of aggression.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is pitbull bleeding a lot?Customer: No, she just finished her cycle. It wasn't that heavy this time aroundJA: Phew. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about pitbull?Customer: She's just been really sad lately. I'm not sure if it's because of our other dog we got back in November. The two play all day long, but not so much any more.

My dog stopped eating dry food 2 weeks back and started to

My dog stopped eating dry food 2 weeks back and started to eat dirt. I couldnt get him to eat dry food at all. In the process he lost a lot of weight. He lost his appetite and was not himself. I started to get worried and switched him to canned food to get him to eat. He ate this right up. A couple of days later his belly swelled up and he is constipated. I have tried milk and pumpkin, hes able to potty a little, but I cant seem to find much around the yard. My husband said its worms. Im not sure what to do. He is an outside farm dog that we inherited from a family member that passed. I am not sure how old he is and I believe he is chow/lab. Hes about 40-50lbs. He will not get in a car. If we try to put him in he disappears and acts out.

I have a 12 year old schnauzer mix that has been diagnosed

I have a 12 year old schnauzer mix that has been diagnosed with a tumor in his mouth, a sarcoma according to the vet. It has been growing up under the skin on his nose but otherwise he has been eating and drinking fine, taking tramadol for pain and doing pretty well. I have been trying a remedy I heard about with baking soda and maple syrup and following the amount given guideline. It seems to be helping him feel better but tonight he strted bleeding from his mouth. I am not sure if he just bit down on something or if it is just getting worse.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: other than that he seems to be feeling fine.
