Wart or Growth on Puppy's Nose
by Colleen D.
(North Vancouver, BC, Canada)
I have a 6 month old lab cross who has developed some sort of growth on her nose. It started about 4 weeks ago as a tiny white dot that has gotten bigger and is now growing at an alarming rate.
I've been treating it with Vitamin E oil, 3-4 times a day. It's now a brownish color and I guess she's bumped it on something because it's sticking out and part of it is coming off.
By looking at the pictures, can you tell if this is just a wart or something more serious?
She's getting spayed in 2 days so will be asleep if this is something that needs to be removed by surgery.
I plan on giving her thuja remedy pellets, but not sure of the dosage.
Her immune system could be compromised by over-vaccination?
She was a rescue dog from an Indian reservation and we got her at 4 months old.
She has also developed ear mites or an ear infection, this I've been treating with organic apple cider vinegar mixed with distilled water and then olive oil? Only problem is she runs under the bed when she sees the cotton balls so have not been able to do it on a daily basis.
Thank you for any help and advice....Colleen and Hailey
