Hello, my name is***** and I will help you.

You are right it is most likely a wart. These usually fall off with time. Check the insides of the cheeks and the gums because you may find more.

While these are more common in young dogs they can occur at any age.

There is really nothing to do unless it really bothers her. If it does, it can be surgically removed or cauterized.

If you have any more questions we can continue this dialog - even after the rating.

It seems that you forgot to rate the service.

I hope that you had a chance to have that papilloma checked out.

Best to you and your dog.
