Has anyone tried the liquid form of Thuja on their own or their dog's warts ?

Declan has one (yes, a Vet has seen it) that is more of a nuisance than anything and I'm wondering if anyone has had any success with Thuja.

I remembered it as a treatment for vaccine-related diarrhea when Dipsey was looking for help with her GD.

An intro: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thuja_occidentalis

And a recent study of interest:

I know what a wart is but is Declan's like a pimple ? One of my cats use to have them under his chin and vet said to put alcohol on it and it worked. But if it's a real wart , I don't think this would work.

Nah, it's a real wart. It's not growing thank dawg but it's on his back so I'm always conscious of it during grooming. The alcohol would dry out the surface but not enough to cause the surface to peel away layer by layer.
