Usually no treatment is needed for canine papilloma virus as the CPV-1 papillomas will fall off within 2 months. However, if there are many of them, if they are large, or if they otherwise interfere with a dog`s normal activity they can be removed by a veterinarian.
Cryotherapy: Involves extremely cold substances, such as liquid nitrogen, to freeze and kill warts. Electrosurgery: Uses a high-frequency electric current to burn off any warts. Surgical removal: In some cases, healthcare providers may surgically remove warts from the body.
Papillomas most commonly occur on the face, lips, extremities, and within the oral cavity. These warts are generally small in appearance and pale to pink in color. They tend to be cauliflower-like and may enlarge and become darker over time.

You can measure your dog’s water intake the following way: in the morning, measure a specific amount, a little bit more than you think he/she will drink. 24 hours later, measure the remaining amount. If the amount of water your dog drank is significantly greater than it should be, then you should take your dog to a veterinarian.
Causes for mildly increased water consumption include: food changes, increased ambient and body temperature, increased activity, urinary tract infection, and general illness.
Common causes for greatly increased water consumption include: diabetes, urinary tract infection, kidney disease, steroid use, and other systemic diseases. With large increases in water consumption, you will also usually see increased urination. Please take note of urinary patterns to discuss with your vet. Greatly increased drinking and urination is ALWAYS a reason to see a vet.

It is recommended to do an ultrasound every 6-8 weeks to determine the disease status and thoracic radiographs every 2-3 months to monitor for spread of the disease.
Start by showing your dog a tasty treat and placing it over his or her nose. When they begin to sniff at the treat, gently move the treat backward. Most dogs will follow the treat with their head, and the backward motion will cause their back ends to sit down! Once your dog sits, reward with the treat and some praise. If your dog tends to walk backwards instead of sit, doing this technique against a wall will prevent your dog from walking backward and encourage sitting.
Once your dog has done this a few times, begin to add the word “sit” every time you put the treat above your dog’s head. Only say the word once, and then continue with the luring motion. Your dog will begin to associate the word with the action after several tries! After this, you can begin to attempt to offer the word “sit” once, and if your dog does so, reward with a treat and praise! If your dog forgets, or appears bored, stop training and try again at a later time- most puppies only have an attention span of a few minutes at most!
