Skin tags

Q John asks:

Hello, my eight month old cocker spaniel appears to have what looks like bubbles near her eyes and on her face near her mouth. They are attached to her body and I suppose resemble skin tags. They do not irritate her at all. She has had them before on her head and back of her neck but they disappeared. They are tiny and just look like little bubbles. Have you any ideas please? Thank you.

Q Our vet says: Without seeing your dog it is impossible to say exactly what these could be, but I would suggest that it is worth finding out from your vet if these are ticks. Since ticks can carry disease it is always worth trying to prevent the problem by treating your dog for them regularly. Do not try to remove ticks yourself since this can cause problems if it is done incorrectly.
