    Hi all new here my dogs a 11 year old springer spaniel and she's got this little thing next to her eye noticed it a few weeks ago while cleaning her eye and I made the end bleed a tiny bit but its healed up since then it looks like a little bit of skin but can have a proper look at it because the dog hates being prided and poked she has fatty lumps but the bets said not to worry because of her age but what do you think this is by her eye thanks

    Looks like a skin tag that's been caught by the brush or something.

    I would get it looked at the next time you are in the vets. Sooner if it starts to grow or look worse

    My old Goldie has just got one on his nose.

    Either a skin tag or a canine papilloma (warty growth) - I'd just keep an eye on it in case it becomes a problem for her.

    I'd leave alone. My older springer is getting more and more fatty lumps, horrible, but they're not bothering him and I can't put him under for vanity reasons! :p

    As it looks like its on a "stalk" it could be a skin tag or something called a papilloma. Papillomas are usually viral and often disappear on their own eventually. They can bleed if the get knocked or if the dog scratches them.

    Just keep a watch on it and try to avoid her scratching or knocking it when you groom her or clean her eyes.
