Default warts...

Has anyones dog ever had a wart?

Chloe has what appears to be a small wart on her face... from the pictures I see online that is what it looks like anyway.

It is pretty small and from what I read online they usually fall off on their own, so I dont really want to take her to the vet, she has been to the vet so much in her little life, if there isnt a reason to poke her I would rather not do it.

Is there anything I could put on it that would encourage it to fall off faster?

I don't really suggest this , but my Dad would tie thread around a tag wort and it would fall off from lack of blood .

This is one of the 5 million things I asked Bailey's vet about today. B has a little red bump under his chin. Vet said that it was common in juvenile dogs and was benign and would fall off on its own. He also said that if it appeared to be bothering Bailey (e.g., if he starts scratching at it -- I haven't noticed anything), I could put Neosporin on it.

I did some Googling because I forgot what he called it, and apparently it's a histiocytoma (there are lots of images if you want to compare it to what you see on Chloe).

I've both removed and waited... they will fall off...but god are they ugly...

removal (for two large ones) was $300 so I think in the future I'll just leave 'em.

right now it is very small and since it is near her mouth and I have her coat growing into the full yorkie coat, you cant see it without really looking for it, thankfully because I get grossed out pretty easily, lol... I am more worried about her passing it on to Armani, since I read they are contagious... they kiss each other all the time and there is no way I can prevent them from sharing a water bowl unless I separate them in different rooms, or crate and rotate, and thats not really something I am willing to do.

I guess we will see what happens, in about a month or so she is going to be spayed, so if it is still there then I will just have it removed, I just feel bad making her undergo a separate procedure.

I vote leave them!

I know one cocker that has loads of warts. The cocker's mom used to take him to the vet to get them removed but they always quickly grew back!
they fall off, grow back somewhere else!

You may want to google plastic or ceramic food/water bowls/canine virus' causing warts, if you don't use stainless steel bowls. That could also be the problem.

Years ago, one of my dogs got a wart on the face, had it removed and it came back, then the vet asked if I used plastic bowls..................switched problem solved lol.
