Q. My 10 year old maltiase has several (look like white warts) on his body, when groomed they are being aggravated. What are they and how to cure them.
A. In older dogs warts are not at all unusual. Have them checked by your vet to make sure they are just warts, but, short of surgical removal, there's not much to be done about them. If your dog needs an anesthetic procedure done, such as a dental cleaning, your vet can remove the warts at the same time. The warts alone generally aren't worth risking anesthesia on your dog.
