Hi!

**Edit** I just realized I posted this on the wrong fourm and I am not sure how to move it or delete it**

So my puppy has a couple weird white bumps on her mouth. She hasnt had trouble eating or anything and after looking at a couple other threads I think its oral pappillomavirus which ive heard go away on their own.

I took her to the vet today just to be sure and he said that it was probably viral too but he wanted to send a sample off to the lab. I really like the vet we use but sometimes I feel like he charges my husband and I extra for things we may not need. My husband doesn't get that feeling at all though so I may just be paranoid and that not be the case at all.

Anyways, to send a sample to the lab and have her warts removed its going to cost around $350-400. I am willing to pay for the laser treatment for sure which is around $175, but im a little iffy about sending the sample off to the lab if it is just the pappillomavirus that will resolve on its own. What would you all do? Should I get a second opinion? also does this price sound reasonable?

welcome to the forum, we are a bunch of dog lovers and are here to help in anyway we can. I think you should post this under the heading of "heath".

But $175 is just about normal for any lab work of this nature. Hoping for good results for you.
