Warts in Dogs One Dog's Story

How an alarming case of oral warts came and went

 

MetPet.com Staff Writer

This is anecdotal information so please contact your veterinarian for specific care. 

One of our golden retrievers developed a huge case of warts on the right side of her mouth.  She was 13, in good health for her age and had no other illnesses. 

The wart attack started off as a chewing gum size, light pink bump that was usually hidden under her upper lip.  It became visible only when she ate or when she panted. 

Within a few weeks the wart blossomed into an alarming cluster that covered the entire right side of her mouth and drooped several inches below it.  A small cluster of two warts was also developing on the left corner of her mouth.  It looked as if she had been into the strawberry flavored cottage cheese and it was flowing out of both sides of her mouth. 

Since it was not bothering her, although it was alarming to look at, we agreed with our veterinarian to avoid surgery at her age and see what developed. 

We put her on the eating regimen below and thoroughly cleaned (with bleach spray cleanser) her food and water bowls after each meal.  Approximately 2 months from when we noticed the first wart, they began to disappear with amazing speed. 

Just when it appeared that the huge wart cluster would have to be surgically removed, it began to disappear.  In a few days, the huge, pink cluster shrank into pea-sized bumps and then into smaller red bumps that were barely visible along her gum line. Within two weeks they disappeared entirely.

Warts can return but it appears that the dog's own immune system, with help from a fresh food regimen and perhaps supplements can overcome them without having to resort to surgery.  Whether or not the following items helped, our 65 lb golden retriever has attained 14 years of age and happily walks a 2.5 mile course in the woods and fields without a hitch.
