|So Indy developed what appears to be a wart inside his left ear flap. It started small and got to a bigger size in a matter of a couple weeks. It seems to have halted in growth. It's hard to think of something comparable in size. Maybe half of a pencil eraser? It hurts him sometimes when his collar goes over it. And he has pawed at it a little. I keep Neosporin on it to help keep the redness/itching to a minimum. We had our other dog Kenya to the vet for her rabies shot last Thursday and I asked the vet what it was, and he thinks it's a wart. From what I have read, it looks benign. Indy also has a small mole on his lower right eye lid. My vet says it would cost around $150-200 to have it removed. I think they use a laser. I would have it done, but I am hesitant with putting him under anesthesia. I could have his teeth cleaned at the same time
I will probably wait a month or so and see if it changes in size or discomfort. Anyone else ever had something like a wart or mole removed from your dog? Is it a big deal?
