Canine oral papillomas, also known as oral warts, are small, benign tumors of the mouth caused by the papillomavirus. They are found on the lips, gums, mouth, and rarely can also be located on other mucous membranes. Canine oral papillomas usually affect young dogs.

Traditional treatments include surgical removal or frozen off cryogenically. Imiquimod is being prescribed increasingly for dogs with viral papillomas. Burning and skin irritation are frequently noted as side effects.  Imiquimod is for external use only and should not be used for warts in the mouth lips or gums.
