Hi Maisie
Please re-post your query so the vet can also answer it. I know that warts are caused by a virus and so are very difficult to treat and usually go away on their own, eventually. I did some research on them and found all sorts of alternative type treatments for them, some of which sound practical. Boost your dog's immunity with vitamins and any other natural food supplements (e.g kelp). This may help her to fight off the virus. Try dabbing a bit of frankincense or eucalyptus oil on each wart daily. I know of a few people and dogs that have used this method successfully.
