Papilloma Virus (mouth warts)
I saw a small gray bump on Kiki's lip and thought it was a tick but found out it's a wart! Ewww. Anyway, was told it's a virus that she could have picked up from a common watering bowl at a dog park but that it will go away on it's own in a few weeks to a month. Was also told it could be squeezed so that her immune system will release antibodies to fight it and speed up the process.
I was surprised to find no mention of this on the forum because it could be a problem at kennels or doggie day care for puppies or young dogs. I'm wondering if anyone else has encountered this issue and if you tried any remedies such as L-Lysine. Thanks.
