Good questions and there's no obvious answers. I spent HOURS researching online, everything from articles specific to thuja for dogs to understanding how homeopathic treatments work in general (not at all like human ones....for ex. - giving more pellets does not equal a higher dosage). Based on that, I just did some trial and error because for many things, I found contracting strategies.

What I did:
-Put some topic thuja essential oil on one of the warts (the other was right next to the eye, so it seemed like a bad idea). Used a qtip and applied it twice per day (warning: at this time, my dog developed reverse sneezing for several days. I have no idea whether it was related, but it was quite the coincidence, and made me think he might be allergic to the very strong smell of the essential oil). I stopped this after 3 days because of the sneezing.
-Gave the pellets. I gave him 2 pellets at a time, twice a day (4 in total per day). I dissolved them in a bit of chicken broth (you're supposed to do it with water, but he didn't like the flavor) and had him drink it. I made sure it was not close to meal times, though there was conflicting info on this. Some said to give it on an empty stomach and others said to give it with food.

I did this for about a week, and then the warts fell off. Hope this helps!
