Dog Wart Close to Eye - Could Be a Sign of Numerous Conditions
by Gaye Marshall
(Valla Beach, Australia)
The wart is black and quite scabby, about the size of an old one cent piece. It is very close to her eye. She has 2 other large warts on her chest and right front leg - these are smooth and pink.
Indiana is 11 years old and has had pancreatitus. She seems to be lethargic which is most unlike her.
I have checked thoroughly for ticks and fleas, but she is clean. I had her to the local vet last week for itching and she was given an injection which should last for 6 months. She is not itching at present and has had this treatment before.
I was not happy with the diagnosis as she had been vomiting and had had some diarrhea. This has stopped but I am still concerned as she does not want to go for walks and seems very sleepy - much more than she is normally.
