Abstract :

Canine Oral Papillomatosis (COP) is a common and contagious viral disease of dogs caused by canine papillomavirus. It is characterized by the presence of warts on the oral cavity of dogs. Autohemotherapy (AHT) is of prime importance in cutaneous diseases like COP. It is used with conventional medication. In AHT, the small amount of blood is collected from the cephalic vein of the infected dog and injected subcutaneously near the base of oral warts or in muscles of the neck or hind-limb which stimulates the innate and adaptative immune response for complete removal of oral warts. Several case studies show different treatment protocols with different doses of injected blood for autohemotherapy which results in getting rid of oral warts of different sizes in different time durations.
