Natural Treatment for Pets with Cysts
Cysts are not uncommon on dogs and cats. Sebaceous cysts are especially common in dogs, with cystic acne, cysts in sweat glands, and other types of cysts occurring in cats and dogs as well. These cysts can be related to hygiene issues and can become infected, but more often the causes of a pet's cysts are uncertain and hard to prevent.
Your pet's cyst is a sac of fluid or semi-solid material contained within a membrane of cells. They are rarely painful and will often resolve themselves, but if drained or removed a cyst is likely to simply fill back up again or reappear. A dog cyst can cause a scare, as the growth can appear to be a skin disease in your dog, cancer, or look worse than it is. Cysts are more common among different breeds.
Find a Cure for Your Pet's Cysts
As with people, turmeric is thus far the most popular home remedy for cysts in pets, and with substantial positive feedback in turmeric's use for cysts in cats and dogs. It can be added to your pet's diet and/or applied as a paste to the cysts. Let us know what you try from Earth Clinic to get rid of your pet's cysts. Know of a remedy not listed here?

BTW I was also looking if anyone else had experience with using Tinactin to heal cysts and came across someone who saved a lot of money using it to heal dog inter-digital cysts. My family's dog suffers from this and the epsom salt baths and antibiotic ointment aren't helping anymore so will try this for the dog soon too. Here is the interesting website I came across on it http://voices.yahoo.com/how-save-hundreds-dollars-vet-bills-with-7118192.html
I just want to say thankyou for this site. Ive been looking for years for a site like this. My dog (Magnus) is the best friend anyone could ask for and I have found these wart like growths on him. Im so scared they might be cancerous. I lost my Bear (14 yrs. old) just a year ago to cancer and Im scared of losing Mag. Im gonna see a vet to find out if it is cancer. But as far as remedies and vet drugs and knowing what all they did to Bear before he died Ill try all the stuff mentioned in your site. Thanks Karen
