Yes, it will take a couple of months. Other than adding a few things to straighten the immune system, I think there is not much you can do but wait. Ike is going through something similar with puppy mange. The body just needs to time to right itself, I think.

happyboogie the biggest one on his tongue (1st one that appeared) fell off and it looks like the rest of the warts are smaller now or maybe some fell off I couldn't get a good look. His tongue almost looks normal smile

Should I keep him on the Ester C after they clear up as a regular supplement?

That's fantastic news! I'm so happy to hear this smile

I would maintain the vit C long term, it's good in general, and I suspect that Sage in particular could use the added support.

Great news!

Thats what I thought too but didn't know if 2000mg of Ester C a day was safe for long term use. Also, I wonder if he does have an issue with his immune system how will I know if I'm always giving a supplement?

Oh, I wasn't even thinking about dosage.

I wouldn't drop below 1,000 mg per day for maintenance, and I would stay at 2,000 for quite a bit longer if you do decide to decrease it. I'm not sure there is a "right" answer. I'll be interested to hear what others think on this!

I was thinking of keeping him on 2000mg for 1-2 months after all the warts are gone and then doing 1000mg a day. If its safe to stay at 2000mg though I may do that but I don't want to over supplement if thats possible.

Can Ester-C cause constipation?

Last night Sage's poop was tiny little balls still firm but not his normal poop

This afternoon before I left for work it was the same thing only he seemed to have a difficult time going and even whined once.

I didn't give him any Ester-C today. Should I cut back on the doseage or wait it out? Give him something to soften him up?

I've only heard of it doing the opposite, but you never know. Significant increases in calcium, w/o an increase of magnesium might do that, but I don't see Ester C as a significant source of calcium.

You could always either stop or cut back and see if it resolves, then start and work up to a lower dose and see if that works??
