While we call these lesions warts since they look so similar to the ones which develop on humans, they aren't exactly the same. Therefore, otc preparations such as Compound W aren't going to be terribly effective. In fact, these products can affect adjacent skin and cause burning if they aren't applied only to the wart itself.

I've had a variety of owners through the years who've tried various treatments (such as apple cider vinegar) but, unfortunately, they haven't been successful...although I wish this weren't the case since certain breeds do tend to develop quite a number of these skin lesions, certainly as they age. The only really effective treatment is to either freeze them off (which works quite well since most are quite small) or to surgically remove them.

I'm sorry that my answer can't be a more positive one but this is one of those situations where we don't have effective topical or oral options for these types of skin lesions.
