Hi Everyone,
I have a lab named Lenard who is just under 2 years old. A few months ago I noticed a growth on his foot in between his paws. It was a small, grey cylinder shape. At first I thought it was a tick, but after looking closer I realized it was actually growing out of his foot. It grew and changed shapes. Now it is the size of a quarter and it is about 1/4 of an inch thick with hair like projections. I brought him to the vet and he said it was a wart and that it wasn't necessary to get it removed if it did not bother the dog. Since it didn't bother Lenard and was going to cost 400$ for removal, we decided to let it be.
That was about 3 months ago and the wart has gotten slightly bigger. i am concerned that it could be something else. I tried researching dog warts on the computer and have not found anythign that resembles what is on his foot. I am attaching a picture. Has anyone seen anythign similar to this? thank you in advance!

I don't know if it's simply a wart or something else. I tend to err on the side of caution though... It's growing so I think I'd just get it removed. The fact that it's growing freaks me out and it could, eventually, grow big enough to become an issue.

The only way to find out what it is would be to GO TO A VET. You will not be able to get a diagnosis on the internet!
