Warts are common in pets and may appear on their skin, eyes mouth and nose. A widespread type of wart on dogs and cats is called the viral papilloma. Some warts show up as a small benign bump, which disappears on its own, while other types may need specific medical attention due to a related health condition. Getting rid of warts on your pets begins with boosting your dog's immune system.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Visit your veterinarian for an examination and diagnostic testing of your pet's wart. The doctor can determine if it is viral in nature or a more serious condition needing medical intervention.

  2. 2

    Boost your pet's immune system with a supplement of Vitamin C. A wart is due to a weak or undeveloped immune system and often disappears quicker when the immune system is working properly. Add Vitamin C to the food or use as a topical treatment.

  3. 3

    Provide your pet with an oral supplement of Vitamin A. This antioxidant supplement is effective in warding off the virus responsible for the onset of the viral papilloma wart.

  4. 4

    Massage Vitamin E and castor oil onto your pet's wart to soften it, reduce irritation and help it slowly diminish. Apply the oils two to three times daily.
