Lumps and warts

Warts usually occur on the ageing skin of older dogs — as if the loss of hair and muscle strength weren’t enough for them to deal with! They can also be more of a problem in breeds that need to be groomed (clippers may cut the wart and cause bleeding).

Dog warts can also trigger an ‘itch’ response, making the dog lick or scratch the area which also makes it bleed or get infected.

Please let your groomer know if your pet has any lumps or warts.
