Q. HI. Have an eight year old lab that has a wart on her head. Will this work on it ? How to use?

Answered By

A. Unfortunately we can't see what product you are attempting to use on your dog, however it is best to not use over the counter products normally designed for humans unless told to do so by your vet. Many of these products can be toxic or harmful if used. If your dog has a wart growing, it is a good idea to keep an eye on it, and alert your vet if it becomes bothersome or grows in size. Your vet can then remove the wart, or may want to take a sample of it to send to a lab if it looks like something more serious.
