Hello, Kip

I have cured a dog with that complaint. If you study ESSIAC for pets on EC, you should get lots of info. It is Essiac four herb with all roots from Essiac West online, I think.

Start with real small dose, like a quarter tsp twice a day according to instructions. Diet organic raw, less meat, supplements and nutritional yeast. No dairy, wheat, canola. Use hemp seed oil.

It is very effective.

Namaste, Om

You should look up "Acanthosis Nigrans". If you do a Google search, it will try to correct the spelling for something else- I have given you the correct spelling. Your dog isn't going to die from it but you should get her to a vet.

Do you use dry or turmeric root. Isn't there a tumeric essential oil and would that work?

Hello Tish ----- externally you can indeed use castor oil and turmeric. But obtain ESSIAC tea herbs. The four herb with all the roots from ESSIAC WEST online.

In the included instruction booklet page 8, fourth para., to begin with, Use half a tsp. of the concoction twice a day always on empty stomach and do not feed for an hour. Throw away the useless chemicals. They would confuse the body intelligence and make healing more difficult. Increase the dosage to about a tablespoon, but slowly. If his behaviour is odd, do only once day and slightly less, to resume more when it seems o.k.

Blackstrap molasses is good daily diluted so his teeth are not affected. Do not throw away the sludge from the concoction, include small amounts in the food. Feed only organic if you can and raw processes veggies. Plus coconut oil with turmeric combined. Tumors often increase in size before they disappear, so do not panic. Turmeric dosage one half tsp. mixed in the coconut oil for good absorption.

Namaste, Om

 Remedies Needed for Tumor in Chocolate Lab

Hey Tish!

Sorry to hear about your lab and glad you are determined to prove the vets wrong! :-)

I have no direct advice other than to read the *entire* section on tumors and cysts in its entirety. Also read the cancer pages in their entirety. The information is not always in perfect order and gems of wisdom are tucked in here and there so the only way to get all the information is to read each applicable section in its entirety.

And, we do have some contributors with much experience using Essiac and turmeric, and I know they will be adding their advice when they can.

Remedies Needed for Tumor in Chocolate Lab

Sun, 28 Sep 14 04:03:34 +0000

Posted by Tish T. (Sonoma, CA) on 09/27/2014

I am fostering a 6 year old male Chocolate Lab. He came to me with a tumor hanging off his hind quarter the size of a grapefruit. I raised enough money to have the surgery for what the vet thought was a "fatty tumor" boy was he wrong. It was a mass cell tumor and he thought he got it all, but the surgery was 3 weeks ago and his leg keeps swelling up and he's been on 2 rounds of prednisone, benadryl every 8 hours and 3 rounds of antibiotics. Another vet thinks that the surgery stirred up another tumor that was unknowingly present. They are recommending amputation (with no guarantees), putting him down, or just letting him hang out until he's uncomfortable and then putting him down. I am determined to prove them wrong and to have him here for a very long time. Any ideas or information is welcomed. I understand tumeric, castor oil, black strap molasses. Do I do all 3? Do I give it to him orally or topically? He's roughly 75 lbs so what would an appropriate dosage be and how often and for how long? Forever?

Marshall ferrets are not the best at all! You obviously haven't done your home work. They overcage their ferrets which causes inbreeding and don't take very good care of them! I have had 3 of their ferrets, I know. The last ferret I bought was from up north and this ferret had way more energy and was better taken care of.

For the cysts, you may want to try cold pressed castor oil. It can also be put into the eyes as well. I would alternate this with honey on the lesions. This should work. Please give your dog probiotics after the antibiotics. Om

Posted by Matmt (Virginia, US) on 09/27/2014

Hello, I have a small 9 year old dachshund that has had two operations on two cysts that are both under each eye at the same time. He has also had two different antibiotics for a long time .They seem to heal up fine till they look like a fine white scars. Then they start to get puffy and red, then just bursts open again!! Clear liquid building up under the healed skin seems to be the problem. They just won't dry up. Has anyone a suggestion or know what it is, This has been going on for a year now. I Don't know what to do any more and the vets bills are so high the only thing drying up is my wallet.

Thank you Matmt

 Bladder Infection in Male Cat

Hey Twinkletoes!

Please do a google search and read up on DL Methionine. It would appear that ACV is contraindicated. It sounds like you need to follow up with your vet to rule out bladder stones. ACV may help you cat but it tends to have an alkalizing effect on the body and if your cat is prone to stones then you might wish to consider remedies that will replicate the acidifying qualities of the DL Methionine.

 Remedies Needed for Yeast Ear Infection in Dog

Hey Sandy!

I have no first hand experience with the monistat remedy, and the thread you replied to has been inactive for some time. Did you read the instructions on the box - what did the instructions on the box say to do? Maybe follow the instructions??

I personally find the human yeast creams to be too thick to use in the ears; I would consider using Ted's Anti-fungal/Anti-staph remedy:

Mix 1 tbsp of MOM with 1 tbsp epsom salt and 1 tbsp borax into 1 cup of water and 1/2 cups of 3% hydrogen peroxide - this is the brown bottle of hydrogen peroxide sold at the grocery store.

Mix it up in a small bottle with a nozzle for easy application. Set the bottle in sink of warm water to warm the solution inside. When nice and warm use this solution to flush your dog's ears. Do this 3x day for the first few days and then am and pm for the next 7 days. If it does not improve in the first 3 days I would see the vet to rule out a foreign body such as a foxtail in the ear canal.

Ear infections can be related to a grain or plant based diet, as well as allergies. To a void a repeat consider changing the diet to a higher quality chow.

Good luck!

Remedies Needed for Yeast Ear Infection in Dog

My shepherd has a bad yeast ear infection. What is the monistat remedy, as I have just put some into his ear this evening???

I am going to use the olive oil steeped with garlic to soothe his irritation; then I am going to try the ACV/water solution when his rawness subsides.

However, I would like to know the monistat remedy as I just did this because it works on women, but I have no idea how much; how long, etc. Any help will be appreciated. My HeyBoy is in much pain! Thanks.
