An update on BJ.
I've been applying the Silver Gel to the warts and so far I can't tell it they are reducing in size.  Joseph did say to be patient, which I am.  I just want the warts to go away immediately.   Hopefully they will go away.  Although they are benign, BJ began to rub his paw on them which is irritating it, and that's why I decided to do something about them.  He's 12 1/2 and I don't want to put him under anesthesia unless I must.

Mostly though I'm working on BJ's immune system since the wart, called Papilloma, is a virus usually found puppies whose immune system may be weak or in older dogs whose immune system is weak simply because of old age.  The virus is contagious form dog to dog.  It is not contagious between dogs and humans or dogs and cats.

As I mentioned in my last post, I'm treating BJ holistically.  He's getting a holistic immune booster and I'm starting him on a raw food diet.  We're starting slowly - organic chopped meat and sweat potato.  We'll slowly add other meats and vegetables.  No chemicals.  No pesticides.  He loves it and cleans his bowl.

Here's hoping.


  1. We just found your blog via the blog hop. Hoping that the Silver Gel works for BJ. We've never heard of it before but will look it up. Good luck w/the raw diet. Mom's been considering it for me too, since I have ear "issues", which she's sure are diet related.

    1. Thanks for letting me know how you got to me.
      Your mom is probably right. Since I got the warts my mom has been reading up on skin problems. A lot of them are diet related. I love my new raw diet. It's still being mixed with a little dry food and when I'm being a cute (actually a brat), I eat the raw meat and leave the kibble. Eventually I eat the kibble because I'm hungry. So far I have had no reaction to the switch so I'm hoping I'll get all raw soon.

      I'll visit you today,

  2. Hi again... I thought BJ was also given pills for his warts. I've heard other pet owners using Thunja pills to rid of them... I recall that these kind of problems will first inflame before it vanishes eventually so I'm hoping that BJ will be fine.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  3. Warts take a long time to go away even with chemicals, so hang in there!
