|My Westie, Sachi, had a lot of warts in her old age and the vet mentioned that it was because her immune system was weak. So when I noticed that my mom's 7 year old toy poodle was getting warts on her back it worried me and I mentioned to her that it might be a weakened immune system. NOW my own little Leela, only 2 years old, has two tiny warts starting to sprout. One is on her neck and the other is on her shoulder blade.
Today, I read online that there are two types of dog warts. One is the kind that puppies get near their nose, mouth, or other membranes. The other, that my mom's poodle and Leela seem to have, is the kind that old dogs or dogs with weakened immune systems get.
Why would Leela have a weakened immune system at 2 years old? What could have caused it? If it is weakened, what can I do to get it back to normal and how do I know when it is fixed? Should I be giving her probiotics, antioxidants, and/or a multivitamin? And for how long?
