    Default strange scabby growth

    My male pug is almost 11 years old. A few weeks ago I noticed what looked like a scab near his genitals. I assumed maybe he had gotten a small cut and that it was healing, however now it seems to be growing outwards. Instead of growing in width, it is pushing out and getting longer. It is black and hard about the size of a pen. Has anyone ever seen anything like this or have any suggestions??

    I would get to the vet. It does not sound like anything normal. Hope it is easily fixed.

    I'm glad that you found us....

    You need to get him to the vet. It might be a skin tag...which is nothing but you might want it off.

    Please let us know what the vet says!
