My Online Vet Response for Malignant dog wart or should we go to a vet?
by: Dr. Carol Jean Tillman

Hi Robert,
The warts that are appearing on your puppy are benign, viral papillomas. More may appear around the mouth and sometimes inside the mouth and on the tongue. It is fairly common in dogs 6 months to 2 years of age. Holistic veterinarians are concerned that this may be due to too many vaccines given to puppies that are too young.

They will usually disappear without treatment after 3-6 months. Or, faster, with homeopathic treatment using the remedy Thuya. It would be best to consult with a holistic veterinarian to have your pup treated with homeopathic remedies.

In the meantime, make sure your pup is eating a fresh wholesome diet (see our page on 10 Best Dog Food Options and consider a raw food diet. And please notify your 'regular' vet that your pup has developed these warts. It should be noted as a vaccine reaction.
