Support for dogs with papilloma wart outbreaks
Here’s a neat little formula for supporting young dogs with papilloma virus outbreaks.
If you don’t know, papilloma virus in dogs can cause warts. Young dogs can easily pass on the virus to other young dogs. Sometimes there is just a wart or two that forms in the mouth or on the face and other times you can have dogs with many, many warts. With time they will go away but I have found this formula really speeds up the time to resolution, often times with warts starting to fall off within a week of starting it.
It is a simple formula of four herbs
- Echinacea purpurea which is a strong antiviral and immune stimulant
- St. John’s Wort helps with its antiviral effects
- Cat’s Claw also often used for pain and inflammation also is a strong immune stimulant
- Licorice root helps to balance this formula and helps the body to integrate and use it. It is also though to have more direct immune stimulant actions.
This formula is usually well tolerated by dogs. I love making it because of the wonderful textures and colors of the four herbs. It is now available as Wart Immune Support in my Kingdom of Basil store.
