Pets, just like their pet owners, can get warts that can be painful or just unsightly and which can spread across their skin if left untreated. Home remedies like apple cider vinegar and castor oil can help get rid of warts on your pet painlessly and at little expense.
A wart is a viral infection, so any dietary aids or natural topical agents that have antiviral properties can help. After that, sometimes time is enough. Most warts aren't dangerous and may not spread at all (though if you have any concern, your vet should take a look at your dog or cat's wart--you may be misidentifying a skin cancer on your pet).
Natural Cures: To get rid of a pet's wart at home, you can apply apple cider vinegar, castor oil, or vitamin E to the wart a few times during the day for a week or more until the wart fades away or falls off.
[YEA] My 12 year old dog started developing a large wart on the top of his head which kept getting larger and larger. The vet said older dogs develop them and that there was not much he could do about it. I started dipping a cotton swab into ACV and applying right on top of the wart twice a day; once in the morning and once at night. It totally disappeared within a couple of weeks!
