I noticed Zoey has a "wart" right at the back of her head were it meets the neck. I isn't cauliflowery but smooth like a skin colored mole. I will have the vet check it out when she goes in for her annual in a next week. I only found the one and its not red or bleeding. It is just gross in my opinion. I hear conflicting reports on why the appear and what treatment if any should be. I hear if they do surgicaly remove them they grow back elsewhere and its a sign of diminished immune system? and others who won't remove them unless they bother the dog in some way.
Zoey hasn't had any shots since one year old other than rabies. Just titered. She is 6 now. Can I expect more to appear? I hate to fine one with the clippers and hurt her. I felt her all over and I did not find anymore.

Removal does (should had said doesn't) cause them to grow else where. They just grow. Some fall off some don't. Sure if you remove the one another might replace it not the cause.

If you catch it as a youthful growth one can add OACV to it an it will fall off. I have done it on my Oliver.

Try Head and Shoulders it has a acid in it, salicylic acid and other things.


By the way if you want inexpensive curved shears go for the horse fetlock shears no sharp pointy ends. Should be under 15 dollars even shipped.

Zoey has her appointment today. I'm pretty sure it's not a cyst. Will let you know what vet says.

I have been treating Oliver's growth with Food Grade DE Earth by rubbing it in with using latex gloves to keep my hands safe and wet. They are drying up but I have Oliver 50% of the time. Last night I cut some of the dead stuff off. Vets here don't have lasers.

Vet never said an thing about his growths willing to operate and what they are, but a pharmacist said they are fat growths in hair follicle. So silica should dry them up, looks like it's working.

Becky:
I recently read that if you soak a bandage with apple cider vinegar and tape it over the wart, it will fall off. I don't know if it takes a day or week or what, but it might be worth a try. I would not put it anywhere there is exposed tissue (eyes, mouth, nose, genitals, etc.). This is a remedy that was for humans. Warts are a virus in the system so won't necessarily come back in the same spot. My cocker had them all over and it seemed to be more of an autoimmune issue as she got older that was causing them.

Only band aid that sticks on the dog is a Johnson&Johnson flexible fabric. Only sometime the organic apple cider works at times dries them up. Maybe if you catch it as a small pimple or bump.

After 11 removed surgically and more on there way, as they trimmed him for removal of the worst ones back in April.

Today he has one on the left rear leg that is huge, was tested as clear not cancer.
