Dog eye wart, cyst or growth near eye

by Thom Tipul
(Mansfield, Ohio)

We have a 1 1/2 year old lab mix male dog and over the last 2 weeks or so he has developed a growth or a wart near his eye.

Can you tell what it is?

Please advise whether there is a home remedy available or if he needs to be seen by a veterinarian.

If he needs to be seen, how would the vet go about removing it?

My Online Vet Response to Dog Eye Wart/cyst/growth near eye
by: Dr. Carol Jean Tillman

Hi Thom,
What a clear photo you sent, and a wonderful patient to let you get such a good picture of him! It is not a wart, it looks like a growth called a 'histiocytoma'. The best treatment would be by a holistic veterinarian using homeopathic remedies.

Surgery would not be a good solution, considering where this is located. And topical solutions would not be beneficial, and may even hurt his eye if they contacted the cornea.

A holistic veterinarian will discuss vaccinosis, improving the diet, and will then prescribe a homeopathic remedy based on his constitution. Other causes may be emotional, or environmental, such as adoption of another dog or cat, or introducing a new baby into the household triggering jealousy. Environmental causes could include the applications of flea or tick medicine.

Find a holistic veterinarian right away, since these growths can quickly become larger.
