Why do they appear?
As a rule, warts or papillomas on the udder are found in young cows. Neoplasms are of various sizes, and can also be both single and group. The main problem is that being on the nipples, they complicate the milking, and sometimes make it almost impossible.
It is also important to remember that even the most innocent-looking warts are a serious disease. It refers to viral diseases that fall on the udder of cows through wounds, fissures and abrasions. That is why it is so important to properly care for this delicate area of the animal. Very often, minor growths dry up and disappear themselves, others, especially on the nipples, spread rapidly and require immediate treatment.
As many owners of dairy cows say, if the warts do not interfere with the milking process itself, then they can be left untouched. However, veterinarians have a different opinion on this. Since papilloma is a viral infection, the virus penetrates the skin and without treatment at the first suitable case (weakened immunity, another disease) will definitely be felt. In this case, in this case, he already acquires some strength and it will be much more difficult to withdraw the papillomas.
