---"I want to add my praise for WiggleLegs Frog toy.  My cat loves to play with WiggleLegs No other toy will do.  When I ask her to find WiggleLegs she goes right to it!  I just ordered 3 more as I'm afraid you will stop making them and then I don't know what we will do!"

---"Once again, you have provided excellent service with an excellent product. Thanks for the extra - it was a hit! My cats are totally addicted to the WiggleLegs Frog, so please keep plenty in stock!"


---"I just wanted to let you know that my cat, Molly, is absolutely addicted to your FlyToys. I literally have to hide them from her so she will go to sleep at night, but as soon as morning arrives she is sitting right in front of their hiding place waiting for them to come out and play."

Each MetPet FlyToy is handmade by skilled artisans with great attention to detail.  They come in the form of bugs, amphibians, mammals and more in three very reasonable price points.

Warts in Dogs
Canine Viral Papillomatosis

Warts are unpleasant to look at but are usually not worrisome

 

MetPet.com Staff Writer

Dogs can get warts usually caused by one of the Papovaviridae family of viruses.  The most common occur in the mouths of young dogs.  They can appear in multiples or singly depending on the type.  Other warts can appear on the abdomen and occasionally on the footpads.  While multiple warts in younger dogs are likely caused by a virus, single warts in older dogs may not be.  

Warts can look like pieces of pinkish chewing gum in the corner of the mouth and can, when appearing in clusters, look like cauliflower.  Since they can grow quickly they have large amounts of blood flowing to them and can bleed easily which could lead to infection. 

Most warts will go away without treatment as your dog's immune system will combat them.  This could take 3 months or more and some warts may not disappear at all. 

If the warts appear to bother your dog (interfering with eating and swallowing) you should ask your vet about surgical removal.   Warts rarely become cancerous.

The virus is contagious to other dogs so infected dogs should have their own food and water bowls and avoid direct contact with other dogs.  Since the virus has a long incubation period, however, dogs that live together are likely to be infected before warts appear.
