Default Canine Papillomas - Help!

I noticed a white lump on Pandas tongue on Monday evening so I took him to the vet the next day, they said it was most likely a papilloma (wart caused by a virus) but that it could be a tumor and they should biopsy to check but he would need to go under anesthetic to check. I didn't want to put him under anesthetic just because of a wart!

So I took him to another vet the next day and he was much better! Checked Panda over properly and said it was definitly a papilloma. This sucks though as since we do flyball with Panda he now can't compete until he is better as it is contagious to other young dogs under 2 as thier immune system isn't as mature. I am convinced he caught it from flyball in the first place as he doesn't socialize with any other dogs. We were supposed to be competing this weekend but obviously cant now :( And it can take up to 5 months to go away!!!

I did some reasearch and their is an antibiotic which can help cure them in 10-15 days but as it is not licensed for use in dogs my vet had to give me a similar one first to try as it is illegal to use an unlicensed drug without trying something else first. In the mean time he is going to call the manufacturer and do some research about the drug which has had studies on it.

Has anyone else had problems with papillomas? Panda only has 1 at the moment at the back of his tongue but I am worried about how long it will take to go away as he cant socialise with other dogs at all while he still has it :(

I have ordered some L-Lysine as this is supposed to help boost the immune system and help them fight the virus quicker but he LOVES his flyball (as do I) so he will really miss it if he has to wait 5 months!

Anyone else had experience of this?

Jasper had one on his foot a few months back. He had an infected pad and this was on the same foot, but completely unrelated. I had the vet test a sample of it and it was for sure a papilloma. It went away on its own in like a week.

He will have had it a week tomorrow, still no improvement, it is still about 1cm and still in there! :( At least he still only has 1 but it hasn't shrunk or anything yet :(

I've never even heard of these so while I have no advice to offer, I wanted to thank you for bringing it to my attention. It sounds like they're quite common!

(Panda is so pretty!)

Apparently it is very contagious among young dogs so if they were to pick up a toy he had help or lick his wart they could catch it. Sucks as it can take so long to go away too. Doesn't seem to bother him at all, I don't even think he knows anything is wrong, he probably just will miss his flyball and playing with other dogs (he LOVES other dogs).

I will get some new pictures of Panda up here soon I gave him a cute haircut recently so need to get some new shots of my handsome boy.

That's very common in dogs before 2 years old. I know Fozzie had some and then Nickel got 2 white/pinkish ones, one on each side of his lips. My vet didn't give any medication and said let Nickel's immune system do the work. It took 4 weeks for them to disappear. He wasn't in pain or anything. I could still brush his teeth and he could eat without any problem.

In people they cut them off the tongue and that's that, but dogs usually can get rid of them themselves. I am so sorry you have to miss flyball, what a drag. At the dog park there is a rotating volunteer who takes all the tennis balls home at night and washes them. What do they do with the flyball balls?

PS I'd love to see Panda in his new 'do. I remember watching him fly around in his video and thinking how cute he was.

I am not sure what they do with the tennis balls at flyball to be honest, they always look pretty cleanish so I guess they get washed, there are dogs there who slobber an UNBELIEVABLE amount and i really do mean unbelievable so they must have to wash them at least some times. They have a massive crate of them so would be several washing machine loads.

Did the warts get smaller before disappearing schnauzerpoodle? Or did they just fall off?

Panda doesnt seem bothered by it, he is still tucking into his raw tripe and just chowed down on a turkey neck so cant be that bothered by it. I just really dont want to wait months on end for it to dissapear. He has until Friday afternoon left of this current antibiotic and if no change then I will call my vet and see if we can get the other one.

Panda has been a little ball mad the last few days so I think he has missed his flyball, he has been throwing his tennis ball at me all the time to get me to play ball with him.

I cut Pandas ears quite short this time and I think it looks really cute! I wanted to thin them down as they kept getting matted but that didnt work as they still matt just as easily, I think he is still changing his coat though.

Oh I do hope his wart goes away soon! His immune boosting tablets have still not arrived yet but they should help him fight the virus off too.
