Warts Under Chin - Papilloma Virus Caused By Vaccinosis
(Ottawa, ON, Canada)
Sasha - Chin warts
My 11 month old puppy Sasha, a purebred Hungarian Vizsla, has developed a cauliflower-like wart beneath her chin that appears to have grown in size.
I first noticed it almost two months ago and at the time it was slightly black in color but I chalked that up to scabbing because it had been bleeding.
It seemed to be going down in size but has recently come back even larger than before and is accompanied by what appears to be the beginnings of a new wart. They are nowhere else on her body, only these two under her chin.
It doesn't seem to bother her. Since it's under her chin, she can't really nip at it athough she does occasionally scratch it by accident with her hind paw.
Is there anything that I can do to treat it or will it go away on its own? Are there precautions that I should be taking myself when handling her?
I've read that these can be common in puppies and can go away within a couple of months. I've also read that I can apply vitamin E oil to it to soften it up. I have an all purpose natural gel, brand name Nature's Aid, that contains Tea tree oil, witch hazel, rosemary, aloe vera and vitamin E that I am considering applying.
I appreciate any advice that you can offer me.
