Dog warts multiplying and growing in size
growth just inside rt. ear
My dog Gracie has warts that are multiplying and growing in size on her eyelid, snout and inside part of her right ear flap. I've also felt a growth (cyst?) under the skin in her chest area.
A few years back she had a growth on one of her nipples that turned out to be benign, and I've read that older dogs often get warts that are usually harmless.
Gracie is a 9.5-year-old beagle who I adopted from the pound when she was approximately 1.5 yrs old. She's been quite healthy and gets regular check-ups, shots and dental cleanings. She has a healthy appetite and I feed her Iams weight-control dry food (1/4 cup twice daily) with a few Milkbones and rawhide sticks in between. Her weight has always been between 29-32 pounds and is about 30 lbs now.
I took a few pictures and wonder if you could tell me what to do about the flesh-colored warts, the eyelid growth, and especially the one in the ear, and if there's anything I can do for them holistically to treat them and prevent additional ones from appearing. Should the cyst in the chest be biopsied?
