Why does my dog have warts?

Canine viral papillomatosis sounds like a very concerning illness; however, it is the technical description of warts. 

What are warts?

Warts are a benign type of tumour of the skin. They can be singular or multiple and can occur anywhere on a dog’s body. Warts are generally caused by viruses. There are numerous types of virus which each cause a slightly different presentation of warts in different areas of the body. Warts are very common in dogs and for the most part are not serious or problematic.
