My dog picked up the canine pappiloma virus from a friend's dog (didn't know he had them) and has developed a pretty large wart in her mouth area. Right now, it's about the size of a small marshmallow.
The vet checked it out and said although it's ugly, it's not bugging her and should regress on it's own in a few months...thus recommended the "do nothing" approach.
Unfortunately it is contagious to other dogs which means no dog parks or dog play until it goes away...which could be 2-3 months if not longer.
Does anyone have any experience with some at home treatments we could try to make it regress faster? I've read that boosting their immune system could help, but don't really know how to.
Googling offers a variety of suggestions but just thought I'd get some "real" feedback as opposed to trusting random sites.
Any advice would be appreciated.

both mine had it
both ofMy Malinois' had it... took them to the vet and was told to just leave them alone. Some vets will laser them off or give them a course of antibiotics. my vet said that even if they laser them off the dog still carries the virus...it's just removing the visual part. my dogs are 6 months apart...the older one had them 1st and they went away within 6 weeks....they were long gone before we got the pup...but he got them too.. I'm guessing the virus was still live on chew toys etc...they've all been trashed and replaced. when the pup got it the older one didn't ...which was great.
sorry this doesn't answer your question regarding home treatment. good luck with the waiting game...please post if you find something that helps.
