My dog is now 16 yrs old and has been developing skin tags but now she has a lumpy one on her leg that she constantly likes until it is raw. Why is that ?

Dear Mrs. Brown,

As a dog ages the immune system becomes weaker and skin tags pop up. The latest skin tag is more sensitive and your dog has been working on it which causes more irritation. To soothe the skin you might try adding a half dose of DERMA-IONX twice daily on the breakfast and supper food. I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 to strengthen the immune system and reduce inflammation.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
