Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Today I noticed this wart or pimple like thing on Kemba's mouth. Any idea what it is? Will it go away? Should I have the vet look at it?

The pic is a little blurry, but from what I can tell, it sure looks like canine pappiloma virus (dog warts). It can go away on it's own, but it would take weeks for your pup to clear it by himself. It may spread too, so don't be surprised if you find more in his mouth on his gums. If you notice more in his mouth, you should keep him away from dog parks and doggy daycare or anywhere he might get on contact with a young dog or a dog with compromised immune system.

Storm JUST got rid of most of his warts. He had them for about 2.5 weeks. We took him to the vet to get antibiotics, azithromycin, to help him get rid of it faster, and it really helped. When I asked my vet why anitbiotics for a virus, she said there have been studies in the past couple of years that helped, and it really helped Storm get rid of them faster.

You'll also hear people say you can give L-Lysine to your dog, and when I asked my vet about it, that is usually used to treat herpes or cold sores and some people have used it but I don't believe it's as effective as azithromycin.

Just a warning, if you go to your vet and she gives you an Rx for azithromycin, you do pay full price for it, unless you have some kind of pet insurance that will cover part or all of the cost of meds.
