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.
