Dog Wart on Leg Not Changing in Size, Color or Shape

Wart on front left leg - see arrow

I first noticed this ‘wart’ on my dog's front left leg about three weeks ago but didn’t do anything about it until now. It has not changed in size, color or shape since I’ve noticed it.


I thought that to be safe, I should check with a vet.

Cooper is a Bluetick Coonhound, German Shorthair Pointer rescue that I’ve had since he was a puppy and he’s 10 years old.

Hi Mike,

After looking at the photos of the wart, it's clear that this is a benign growth, See our page on dog warts to learn more, Dog Warts- types and Treatments

If this is Cooper's only problem at 10 years of age, then he is doing VERY well!! I suggest giving him FEW or NO more vaccinations, you can contact a holistic veterinarian for an exemption form.

Click here to find a holistic veterinarian in your area. Another resource for vets knowledgeable in homeopathy is AVH.org.

Feed him a nutritious diet, see our page on 10 Best Dog Food Options, 10 Best Dog Food Options, and consider feeding him a RAW diet.

As for the wart itself, use this. The ointment should be applied 1 time daily for 3-6 weeks. In some cases, with a strong vital force, the wart should shrink and/or fall off.

In other cases, you may need to prescribe an oral homeopathic remedy for the constitution of the patient.

Dear Alecia,
The previous post was from 2 years ago, and the subscriber has not sent an update. Regarding warts in dogs, you wrote,

"It happens mostly in the case of german breed dogs. It might be due the climate conditions in your place. I made an full time research on it and wrote best thesis writing services on wart and its remedies in my personal blog"

German Breed dogs are no more susceptible to warts than any other breed. And the dog in question, is a mix Bluetick Coonhound and German Shorthair Pointer. Nor is it due to climate conditions.
