Where to get thuja for dogs*

Dog Wart Removal Using Thuja

Adrienne is a former veterinary hospital assistant, certified dog trainer, behavior consultant, and author of "Brain Training for Dogs"

Herbal remedies are often made from branches and the tiny, leaves, known for containing the oil thujone In ancient times, the needles of Thuja occidentalis were used by native Canadians as a tea that prevented and treated scurvy, while in the 19th century, a tincture or ointment made of thuja was often used to treat skin problems such as warts, ringworm and thrush While many claim thuja to be effective, according to the American Cancer Society, scientific evidence doesn't support any claims about thuja or its extracts for being safe or effective The only study I was able to find on thuja use in animals with warts is one on cattle where thuja was used for 3 weeks and was found to be a good alternative to surgery For those interested, the study can be found here; effect of thuja occidentalis on cattle papillomas Caution should always be used when using any herbal supplements and it's always best to first consult with your veterinarian or holistic veterinarian As with all my articles tackling nutrition or health, they're not a substitute for professional veterinarian or nutritional advice, please read all disclaimers

What Exactly are Dog Warts?

At times, veterinarians may crush these growths so to stimulate the dog's immune system to kick in and fight them In young dogs, the warts often resolve on their own and eventually fall off after about 3 to 6 months, sometimes though they become infected and quite bothersome and may require a course of azithromycin, a common antibiotic

While warts may look like innocent growths, at times they can become quite bothersome They may itch, cause problems eating when in the mouth, and can get irritated and bleed in they are in a troublesome location that dogs repeatedly chew or scratch In these instances, where other options have failed, vets may suggest to have these growths surgically removed or undergo cryotherapy (freezing), which, according to the vet in the video below, can be painful However, these growth may still grow back if the immune system is still weak In some cases, supplements may help out

Thuja for dog warts

Naturasil for Dog Warts assists in eliminating all strains of dog warts common to dogs without the pain, scarring, or harsh treatments found in many traditional methods used by veterinarians

Treating Dog Warts with Thuja

If your dog has a wart, it's always best to see your vet Even though rare, some growths may look like warts, but may be something more serious For instance, mast cell tumors, often known as the "great imitators" may look like old dog warts In some very rare cases, a wart can also transform into a squamous cell carcinoma, adds veterinarian Karen Becker Both can be ruled out by doing a a fine needle aspirate of the growth Yet, in many cases, vets readily recognize the classic appearance of warts and will diagnose them on the spot

Treating Dog Warts from the Inside Out

At the same time, thuja can be helpful, especially for warts seen in puppies and young dogs Thuja occidentalis 30c, comes in drops or pellets Some products are meant to be applied topically directly on the warts, while others under the form of pellets or drops, are meant to be given by mouth Make sure you read the dog thuja dosage and directions on the labels carefully!

My 10 month Golden had one the size of a dime inside of his lip It seemed like it came out of nowhere and was pretty large The vet acted like she had never seen anything like it before and said it must be removed So he had it surgically removed but I'm afraid more will just grow back Even though it's gone would giving him the Thuja pills prevent it from coming back?

Emiz My German Shepherd has the same thing going on She has two good sized ones on her tongue Did you dissolve the little pills in water then have them drink it or how did you administer?

I just picked up my Thuja Occidentals 30C today and I am wondering how to administer it Can I simply mix it in with her food? Should I put the pills in peanut butter?

My vet told me that Demodex was caused by dogs being raised around cattle is this true?

Emily Z thanks for sharing your story about your puppy's warts Good to hear that thuja worked for your puppy's warts I love success stories as such Yay for thuja!

My pup got warts in his mouths which probably came from the dog park They were rapidly growing so I got him to the vetIn some cases, supplements may help out. She prescribed antibiotics ( I'm not a fan) so I thought I would give it a try to be sure to give my dog a good round of probiotics afterwards $160 dollars later the warts persisted

I read about thuja and within the first week the warts were diminishing and the 2nd week they were gone I love a $7 safe remedy! Too bad the vet charged me so much for nothing

Thanks, my dogs are getting older and if I ever notice a wart, I would see the vet first and then would rather try to treat it the natural way

Thanks for posting such an informative article! Although I don't have issues with warts on my animals currently, I know I will always have animals in my life and I know how important it is to be educated about my pet's health I found your article to be very interesting :)
