    my 10 month old dog has what i believe to be a growth due to a doggie papilloma virus under her lip...right above the dewlap thingie..
    (she is a mastiff breed)

    anyways...
    should i wait for her immune system to take care of it?
    ....or should i go ahead and remove it.

    ...or..do something else?

    thanks.
    :)

    First of all I would suggest that you have a vet check her out to make sure that it actually is papilloma. If you are sure that it is papilloma, the warts should disappear on their own in 4-12 weeks. I wouldn't worry about removing it unless it starts causing problems or if they are still present after 12 weeks.
     
  3. thanks for the reply.
    if she were human i'd be pretty sure it is squamous papilloma.
    pedunculated, soft, exophytic nodule with cauliflower appearance.
    ..grew very rapidly at first...with no change in size of late.

    i emailed one of our path instructors an image..
    we'll see.

    In a similar vein, my unicorn has a pimple on her rump. Can I pop it?

    There are rules about unicorn medicine.

    Unicorn pimples have glitter in them that cures cancer, so you have to do it very carefully and you have to collect all the unicorn pimple glitter in a sterile manner. If you don't do this, or if you contaminate the glitter, you will be prosecuted... the sentence is usually death via dragon farts.

    Hmm well I read a paper that seemed to indicate the efficacy of the pimple glitter in cancer cures was largely anecdotal and not proven by any actual scientific studies...I also don't think the fart method is employed any longer in cases of magical creature medial malfeasance, at least not in my extensive experience.

    Do NOT question my authority! I am currently the only person trained in unicorn medicine and dragon medicine. I know both of their behaviors, physiology and medical care better than anyone!

    If you want answers, I wrote a book about ALL of it! Which you can buy, for $250.99.

    These darn "traditional" unicorn/dragon "doctors"... using "evidence"... they wouldn't even know what a dragon looks like, they are all just in it for the money...

    WZ (and other unicorn owners), you can direct your questions to me if you don't want to pay for the book. I've spent years learning from Dr. Google and I'm an unofficial expert in unicorn and dragon medicine. My specialty is educating dragon owners on how to closely mimic the diet of a wild dragon without harming any villages or princesses.

    Who are you going to trust? The person with all the dragon oriented rotations in their signature and actually has exposure to dragons? Or the one who reads the internet?

    Don't underestimate the powers of the internet! I know all!! :prof: And I do too have dragon experience. I watched those two documentaries on dragon training. You know the ones, Part 2 came out last summer I think, and it was filmed in a historically accurate Viking village.

    How do I know that your dragon training is legitimate? I mean, at least I know that Google never lies...

    Have you ever touched a dragon?

    What should you do if a dragon is being overpowered by another dragon? Huh? How are you going to save it?

    Have you found a female night fury? I have.

    Unicorns are necessary for the dragons to live... without unicorns there would be no dragons. I am not surprised that you don't know this, because you have not read my book, which explains everything!

    Let me guess... you have a lot of "natural" remedies for the unicorns... that anyone who talks to you can buy....

    I think I'm going back to my unicorn witch doctor...she only asks me for the sacrifice of my first born child, none of this money grubbing nonsense.

    Isn't it true if i feed my dragon raw unicorn meat it will never have any seizures, or get cancer, or really ever be sick I believe?

    Hey! It is cruel to feed unicorns to dragons! Unicorn lives matter too, ya know. And your dragon can live perfectly well on a vegetarian diet.

    But the guy at the pet store taught me about evolution. My dragon has evolved to eat an over the counter vegan, grain free, dairy free, organic diet. It's primarily bean based and his fire really burnssssss
