Equine Warts

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   October 19, 2011 20:11

Q: I had a 1 year old warmblood gelding come board in the spring and at that time he had warts on his nose. They have since gone away but now my 1yr old and 3 yr old warmbloods have warts all over their noses and spreading. Are the warts contagious? Is there anything I can do to help get rid of them. Will they go away?


A:  They will go away on their own. They may be somewhat contagious if they rub noses but only young horses are susceptible. You can speed up resolution by crushing one with pliers which may alert the immune system to clear them. Other home remedies like toothpaste and other concoctions have no active ingredient against the papilloma virus but the act of applying them likely disrupts some of the lesions and acts the same as crushing. ~Dr. Lisa Wayman~
