After reading these blog entries on Lysine and noticing some small growths on our Bernese (85 lbs) we decided to try it as many human doctors also recommend the same treatment for lip sores. We gave him 500 mg twice a day and within a week they were noticeably smaller and completely gone within two weeks. It may have been because we noticed them very early and started this treatment right away. We dind't notice any side effects at all.

just wanted to let you know that I recently tried this. it only took about 3 weeks for them to go away
here's what i did: my dog had large warts on his tongue and smaller ones forming around his lips and chin. i started giving him l-lysine 2x day. he's 85 lbs, so i started with 1 500mg 2x day. then after a week or so, i went to 2 500mg 2x day. within the following 2 weeks, the warts shrank and then "fell off". i noticed no side effects at all. over the next 2 weeks i went back down to 1 500mg 2x day. its a process, but far less expensive than the vet treatment and visits! good luck!!

JMZ3215 Months Later and the Warts are ALMOST GONE! Yeaaa! My 2 year old pup had a severe case of Papilloma Virus. I took her to the vet 5 months ago as soon as a little white bump appeared on her tongue. Vet confirmed is was Papilloma Virus and assured me it would go away on its own, no need for medicine or vitamins. Four months went by and 5 more growths appeared in her mouth (3 days after getting her annual vaccinations) . Went back to the vet, asked for solutions...They put her on Azithromycin for 12 days but that didn't help at all. The vet did not want to continue with Azithromycin so he just asked me to wait and keep an eye on the warts. No L-Lysine, Vitamin E etc. a couple weeks later I noticed 3 or 4 clusters of growths underneath my dogs tail. Some of the growths were bleeding so i totally freaked and took her to the vet....they said it was most likely the warts and that they had never seen anything like that before. The clusters had at least 10 or so warts. The next day the warts got 100 times worse...the anal area was completely covered. But still the Vet did not want to take any action...at this point i was more than frustrated so i started to take matters into my own hands and order Thuja pellets from an online site. My vet had no idea what Thuja was but after some research he said it may or may not help (genius, i know). After 10 days of Thuja pellets, 3 times a day my pup is finally getting back to normal. She only has one more oral wart and two under her tail....so much better than before. I am so happy that after 5 months we are finally seeing some improvement. This virus has definitely tested my patients...i never want to deal with it again!! If you are having this issue, i highly recommend using the Thuja Pellets...they were great!!
Wow, sorry this has been such an ordeal. In honesty, I would be first off, looking for another vet -- maybe not to leave this vet, but a holistic vet to give you some support! http://www.tcvm.com -- there's a locator on the left.
You don't want the one token holistic vet who does acupuncture in a large urban practice. I'd far rather deal with the small "on their own" TCVM vet who believes SO strongly in acupuncture, etc. that they are willing to put their whole practice on it.
But in your case -- I'd be thinking this dog needs some help immune-wise. There's something just not there if this animal's body couldn't throw off papilloma warts to this degree.
Feel free to email me if I can help.
