Dog warts on head and front limb
Warts on my dog's head and front limb - should I be worried?
A few months ago I noticed a bump on my 9 year old chihuahua/terrier mix. At first I thought it was a bug bite (she loves to play outside in the backyard) so I didn't pay too much attention to it.
A few weeks later I noticed that the bump was still there (which is on her head) and then I noticed another one near her front limb. Of course I panicked and did a bit of research online. I read that warts can be common among older dogs. So is this what my dog has?
The demeanor of my dog hasn't changed... she is still hyper and loves to play and run around, her appetite hasn't changed (we feed her Royal Canin and BilJac dog food) and she gets plenty of water.
If it is at all possible I would like to treat whatever she may have with natural remedies. I once had a dog that had terrible reactions to medicines from the vets.
However, if you think she may have something more serious I will of course take her to the vet.
