Dog Wart or Not?

by Adria Gloude
(Watertown, NY)



My dog has this red bump on her ear. Is it a wart? Before it had a scab as if she scratched it and made it bleed, but now it is just big, red and out there.

My Online Vet Response for: Dog Wart or Not?
by: Dr. Carol Jean Tillman

Hi Adria,
From the photo and very little history, it looks more like a histiocytoma, or possibly a mast cell tumor.

Histiocytomas are growths found in dogs between the ages of 6 months to 2 years.

Mast cell tumors are found in older dogs, over 2 years of age.

A benign wart does NOT start off with a scab and grow that rapidly.

I would suggest you seek the help of a holistic veterinarian for differentiating what it could be, also your dog needs some good support for the immune system, and NO MORE VACCINATIONS!

Following are a few good immune supplementation options:

1. Missing Link Canine Formula
2. Immuplex from Standard Process
3. OrthoMolecular Specialties, Mega C Powder
