Dog Cancer? Should I be worried?

Since my Bouvier was a small puppy I noticed this small pink discoloration on her lip. Today she is 10 months old and now she has 3 large bumps: 2 on her lips and one that on her nose.


The vet said that 2 of them were warts (I just noticed the 3rd on the inside of her lip while trying to take pictures!) The vet said they would remove it when she gets her dental cleaning in July but I'm getting nervous and want to know should I go ahead and get it removed now or is it really just harmless warts.

My Online Vet Response for Dog Cancer? Should I be worried?
by: Dr. Carol Jean Tillman

Hi Aundria,
From the 'close' up photos you sent of your Bouvier's nose/lip area, they look like benign warts. See our page on dog warts for more information.

I would not have them removed since they will probably go away spontaneously. I would be concerned about the cause, though, which is sometimes associated with vaccinations.

Holistic treatment would include decreasing the frequency of dog vaccinations, improving the diet by considering a raw diet (see our page on 10 Best Dog Food Options). And possibly homeopathic treatment for overall health for your dog.
