They had to have all of their vaccinations up to date in Jan, 2019 when we moved to Costa Rica (plane and immigration). They have had none since and will not unless we have to take them back to the states for some unforeseen reason. They are too old for rabies shots since they only stay with us or a house sitter - no boarding so none of those other shots either and the groomers come to the house so no worries there.
I read that information about the vaccinations but Button's moles started a few years ago and this could likely be the culprit. I guess they bother me more than him until he won't stop licking the ones on his feet and scratched the one behind his ear so it had to go. That one had doubled in size in about 4 days so it had me worried.

Glad that you can stop the vaccines. I hope that helps. This would be very frustrating to me also if they were bothering my dog. Hope that things improve for Buttons!

Those look the growths Honey used to have... Vet called them 'old lady warts'.. they were benign growths called papilloma. I had two of the larger ones removed on two different occasions - mainly because she had a habit of rolling on her back and wiggling over stuff - they were on her back and got irritated - I was concerned about it opening up and infection. He did biopsy them for me because I requested it - and as he suspected - benign.

That's funny - we call them his "old man warts" too.
Other that the one that changed so suddenly we haven't had any issues with the others. The vet removed 15 2 weeks ago and we went back yesterday to have the stitches out. He had one that was removed on his front left paw that is a bit worrisome but I am doctoring it daily with ointment and Vit -E oil.

Yes my dog started getting these when he turned 12. There is also another havanese in my complex that is also older and has them. Lillies arenít very big but she has many. The vet said it was nothing to worry about and if they get bigger and bother her that she would surgically remove them.

My 17-year old Poodle developed warts. I had them removed and they would grow back. Eventually, they made her miserable scratching and often bleeding. I eventually had the poor thing put to sleep for other reasons but the warts gave me an extra push to do what was needed. The Time had come.

Boo had a warty growth on his rear paw. However, when I looked for it yesterday, it was gone. I guess he either managed to get it off or it just fell off. No sign of it at all, strange.

I don't know if warts on dogs are the same as warts on people but I've had an occasional wart in my life time. As a kid and once as a adult, a small one developed under by eye.

My son had one on the top of his index finger when he was 14 yrs old. It got kind of big and a dermatologist removed it. It grew back bigger and he removed a second time. It grew back BIGGER. By then I was terrified of removing it a third time. It didn't seem to bother our son so we let it go hoping it would go away on it's own. It kept Growing, Growing, Growing, until it covered his top of his finger between his knuckle and first finger joint. One day our son finally noticed the wart and wanted it removed.

We took him to a new dermatologist who said, this is the biggest wart I've ever seen and proceeded to take pictures. He was amazed and intrigued by this huge wart. He, also, said I can get rid of this wart within a week. I don't remember what he applied. I believe it was some type of chemotherapy medication and like Magic! that wart went away in about a week, leaving normal clear skin and never came back.

So, when I got that tiny wart on my face, under my eye and it started growing I was TERRIFIED!!!! and began applying tiny drops wart remover on it. It went away and never came back.
