Q. My large dog has what appears to be a califlower wart on his lower eyelid; It is about the size of a BB and does not seem to bother him.

A. If the growth suddenly appeared, doesn't resolve on its own in a few days, or seems to be rapidly growing it may be best to have it looked at by your vet. Even if it isn't bothersome to your dog now, it could expand and cover the eye, causing frustration for him. Your vet may recommend taking a sample of the growth if its cause is not directly known, and have it sent to a lab for further testing. Be sure to monitor its size and note if there is any redness, pain, or discharge from the area.
