Possible dog wart?
by Erin Cohrs
Wart on eyelid?
My dog has developed a bump on his eyelid just a couple weeks ago that at first was a pink/flesh color and has overnight turned a grey/black color. I was reading the description for warts on your page and I'm not sure that I would describe it as mushroom shaped, more like an oval pimple, but not quite as raised. He is a miniature dachshund who is going to be 12 this August.
I started giving him Newton Homeopathic Thuja pellets (30 C)
a week ago. I started giving him 3 a day but in the past 3 days I have been giving him 4-6 pellets.
I hide them in Greenies Pill Pockets
. I have noticed that the bump seems to have gone down in size since starting the Thuja, but it did change color overnight which worries me.
He doesn't seem at all bothered by it, he doesn't scratch at it or rub it. It doesn't seem as much as a raised shape anymore, more like a small swollen spot on his eyelid.
His name is Ludwig, he doesn't currently take any medications for anything, he lives with another miniature dachshund, a rabbit, a parakeet, and guinea pig. He eats Purina Senior Formula. He rarely gets table scraps.
I have him on ProPet Senior vitamins and he has hip and joint snacks every day in addition to teeth cleaning biscuits.
I have not noticed any change in eating or activity. He's not an overly active dog, but when he is in the backyard he likes to run a bit and he likes to explore and smell around. He goes on walks about once a week and I'm trying to increase his activity gradually as the weather gets warmer.
