How do dogs get papillomavirus? Dogs catch papillomavirus through a weakness or break in the skin from other dogs who have the virus. Papillomavirus can live in the environment for weeks, so it’s possible for a dog with warts to leave the virus behind in a particular area and then for another dog to pick up the virus from that area at a later time.
Can papilloma virus in dogs be cured? In healthy animals, papillomas do not spread to other areas of the body and are usually cured by surgery. Rarely, a tumor will regrow after surgery. If the viral infection persists because of an impaired immune system, additional papillomas may develop.
