Noticed this today on his nose. Hes almost 10 months old. The bump feels hard when I touch it. Im taking him to the vet this week to be sure but was wondering if anyone knew if it looked kike a wart? Thanks.

Looks like a wart. But the vet is the one to make the diagnosis. Stella had warts when she was younger.....ugh

Stella's were pinkish. Then they started looking like cauliflower and got kind of grayish. Fortunately she only had a few. I gave her an immune booster and put vitamin e on the 1 outside of her mouth. I think they lasted about a month. She picked them up at her doggie day care. I think she was about 8 or 9 months old at the time. I did take her to the vet to make sure that is what they were.

It was called OL IMMUNE. I think it is by animal apawthecary.

Is this the only "bump" your pup has?

Yes thats it that I can see. It didnt start off as a bump. It was just a pink spot for a while and then just the other day I noticed it turned to a lump or wart.

Agreed, about seeing the vet. The picture is kind of hard to see, but even with a clear view bumps, lumps, spots changing color IMO should be seen by a vet, they concern me. Doesn't mean it's not something easily treated. Keep us updated.

So the vet said he thought it was a button tumor. He said he didn't think it was cancer and thought it was viral so put him on antibiotics for 2 weeks. If that doesn't work he said we will have to get it surgically removed.

Remo had some in his mouth when he was just a youngster - they get big and ugly and then they go away. He got his from playing with other dogs at the dog park.
