Papilloma Warts on Young Dog’s Tongue and Lips
Papilloma Warts are a common thing among young(ish) dogs. It’s a little virus (Papilloma) that gets into the skin and makes soft, little whitish-colored warts. They’re usually textured like you see, and sometimes can even look bushy, like “little pink porcupines”.
But they can become numerous. If they do become numerous, or if they get in the way of eating, we remove some or all of them. Occasionally they get in the way of the teeth, or they get crushed on toys and may bleed, but never in a life threatening way.
They are NOT contagious to humans.
They normally go away on their own, I’ve seen them stick around a couple months. They require no ‘special’ treatment, if any at all. I suppose a Vet could freeze them as they pop up, I’d save my money if I were you.
RUMOR has it, if you crush one or two of them in your fingers, (they’re nerveless, therefore painless unless tugged) it releases virus antigen into the tissues and the body kills the warts off faster. While that advice is anecdotal, it does make sense and I did deploy that when my dog Ajax had those warts.

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
