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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
