I am sorry to hear you are worried about Kia. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
Was a biopsy done when some of these were removed? How long have they been there?
I can't say for sure without seeing them, but these may be viral warts. Viral warts appear suddenly, often many of them in a cluster, and eventually go away on their own. If these are viral warts, they will get better. There is a homeopathic remedy called Thuja that can help with warts.
However, these may not be warts. If they are another type of growth, they won't go away with any remedy or ointment. I hope a biopsy was done when the first ones were removed because that would tell us what they are, and if we know what they are, we know the best treatment.
Can you possibly post a picture here? Or get the biopsy report for me to read?

Hi Kim,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Kia. How is everything going?
