Help with getting rid of warts

My friend has a yearling that has had a case of mild warts for about 8 months. She is trying to get rid of them for showing. Any ideas (other than picking them off as this has not helped - they keep growing back.)?

Thanks :)

Has she talked to a vet about it? I'm sure they should be able to recommend something to get rid of them for good. Sorry can't be more help

My sister had a little Morab, she was about 8 months as well, she had terrile warts. She just left them and in about 4 months they just cleared up and went away. I'm not sure if this is typical.

Yearling
My 7yr haflinger has warts on his chin. The vet came over 3 times and scraped them off but they never went away. :(

It is common in young horses, because warts are viral and youngsters don't have fully-developed immune systems. They usually do clear up on their own as the horse matures. Unfortunately, that doesn't really help with your friend's problem...don't really know how to get rid of them, sorry:)

As stated before warts are viral, they go away by themselves. However when my filly was a baby she got a really bad case of milk warts, some were over 2cm long and her whole muzzle was covered, she wasn't a pretty pony!! . It was recomended by my herbalist to use Thuja ointment applied as many times as possible each day. In her case they cleared up within 2 weeks. If you have access to a homeopath a better option is Thuja given internally.

They go away with age. And for showing I don't think they can penalize you for having a horse with warts.
