My little guy that is 7 months has developed a skin tag on his head. Has anyone dealt with this before? Tthans guys.

Yes, Chester has had a bunch of these...

starting when he was a puppy.  Our vet removed about 12 of them from his neck area.  He recently had a large one removed from his foot and another from his elbow.  Some dogs just develop them.  He always took them off with a mild sedative (NOT ACE ) and a local anesthetic.  If they don't bother him, you can just leave them alone.
