My mini foxy has...

My mini foxy has developed a cauliflower wart wherever she was bitten by a tick? Can I use L-lysine to cure them. They are getting rather big

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Is the dog bleeding a lot?

NO, but the warts get full of dirt and become crusty, it maybe dried blood

Veterinarian's Assistant: Phew. What is the dog's name and age?

Bunny and she is 10

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bunny?

Her faeces has become sticky and very dark

Greetings, I’m Dr. Peck, a small animal veterinarian in general practice. Hopefully I might be of some help. One moment while I reply…

Disclaimer: This communication is for discussion purposes only. Without seeing an animal in person, a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship does not exist, and therefore I am unable to diagnose, prognose, or treat. Any comments made during discussion here are based on the information provided and are simply my thoughts regarding what I’d be considering were this type of case presented to me in person. The BEST recommendation for ANY veterinary-related concern is to seek veterinary assessment in person with your local veterinarian.

Regarding the "cauliflower wart", given the description, I'd presume this to likely be a sebaceous adenoma, a very common skin growth of dogs, especially older dogs. But, other types of lumps are definitely possible - you'd have to have it removed and sent to a pathologist for a definitive diagnosis, and that is what I typically recommend if they appear at all concerning, others we simply monitor, especially when they aren't bothering the dog or bleeding etc. I would not anticipate lysine to resolve it.

Regarding the change in her feces, I'd suggest a routine physical examination and a fecal parasite check at a minimum, potentially some routine labwork (bloodwork and urinalysis) if that hasn't been assessed recently. This could be something simple and benign like related to her diet or an indication of disease such as parasites.

14th months ago my little dog had some beef bones, they had the honeycomb bone in them and she had a major bleeding from the bowel. The vet put her on a drip and sent her home 4 hours later with antibiotics. I feel she has an infection that wasn't fully treated. Could I be right?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peck, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

At this point I'd strongly doubt a correlation between an episode of traumatic gastroenteritis and soft/dark stools 14 months later, especially if stools were normal between these periods. But that doesn't mean infectious cause of abnormal stools isn't possible. A fecal pathogen profile could be assessed in this regard.
