I have 13 yr old Akita, that had a tumor on his tail and was the size of a half of a golf ball. Kimo is absolutley been the greatest dog I could ask for and was worried about the tumor, he's to old to get the tumor removed and my vet Dr Dave is the best vet in the area. Kimo is like a 1 yr old health wise, but I did what earthclinic said to do to cure Kimo's tumor and I gave Kimo blackstrap molasses and tumeric and the tumor got bigger and pinkish and then it started to bleed and started breaking open about 2 weeks ago, Kimo is taking cephlaxine and is still taking blackstrap molasses and tumeric and his tumor is is now shrunk about half the size and is clearing up, I wouldn't believed it if I didn't see it and it was nasty to look at and thank god for your website.

I never could get any answer for my beautiful cat, Jordan, and the horrible tumor in his mouth, but am now dealing with a kitty with a large nodular mass on his neck & have been giving him bloodroot pills tho unclear about dosage & don't think I have seen any change. In ordering another product for one of my cats on the site Plant Cures, I notice there is what I believe is more common sense use & application of bloodroot.
This is a quote from the web doc, who I personally have had wonderful help for cats with bladder issues re bloodroot- "Everyone now thinks that Bloodroot is caustic and can "burn off healthy skin" just because of the association of bloodroot with the highly caustic chloride of zinc that is in these salves! Chloride of zinc is, in fact, what is in dry cell batteries and it is simply hydrochloric acid soaked zinc powder. Please wake up people!"
I believe the man has something there! I am thinking of trying his drops on my baby's tumor and still giving him bloodroot capsules.

My horse was diagnosed with a Sarcoid on his front right leg and I called the vet out. She immediately handed me a bottle of xxterra ( one of the basic ingredients is bloodroot ) and I began to apply it. Within 24 hrs the Sarcoid tumor on his leg was 1/4 the size and not ooooozy like it was... It has scabbed over and according to other who have used it the tumor falls off on its own! what an amazing product.

It's been six months since our kitty Penelope was diagnosed with adeno carcinoma in her nasal passage, above her nose and under her eye. I have used a variety of alternative remedies, no chemo or radiation or surgery and Penelope is still in pretty good shape. She still cleans herself, comes over for petting and enjoys playing with a string...and eats very well.
I started with something from a vet clinic, lipids and green powder etc., that didn't seem to amount to much so I started giving her HP. That may have slowed the progression somewhat, but she hated it, even though it was only a drop or two in water given by syringe twice a day. She would hide all day after I gave it to her so eventually I switched to putting DMSO, HP and baking soda directly over the tumor (the tumor is under the skin). This seemed to cause the tumor to grow and there was more bleeding from her eye and nose. Eventually, I added Essiac Tea and then backed away from putting things on the tumor. When I stopped the DMSO, etc., the tumor shrank like crazy but is still there. I am giving her some antibiotic because of likely infection and am now starting the Budwig protocol. The bleeding has almost stopped altogether. So, it's been quite a journey, and, of course, I can't say where she would be if I'd done nothing. I can say that when I checked with the vet school about what to expect with this cancer I was told that the average life span of a cat given radiation for it is one year.
As for the Budwig formula, there is much information on line as to how to prepare it, but nothing concrete about how much to give a ten pound cat and how many times per day. If anyone can help with that I'd be grateful.
I've read that one should not do any oxygen therapies if they are doing Budwig, so I guess I can't do the DMSO and baking soda, but will continue with mushrooms, green powder and beta glucan, transfer factor, Essiac and turmeric and report back as soon as I see a change for the worse or for the better. Please let me know what amount I should be giving and how often if you happen to know.
Thank you, Adrienne

After two weeks on Budwig Flax oil and cottage cheese... I can feel that the lump that was the largest and hardest over the left rib of my jack russell has gotten flatter, still hard. My husband, who didn't know I was doing anything special, was playing with him and said, Hey, I think Micks lump is smaller. I have been mixing 1T flax oil with 3T 1% fat cottage cheese with an immersion blender and feeding half in am and half in pm. He is on a special diet for urate stones. I will continue to give updates.
My pit terrier mix has a soft pliable, black tumor on leg. Was told I could use castor oil . I got grocery sore brand. Used it along with warm water compresses. The next morning it was bleeding some. I put tumeric in food and cleaned it with Apple Cider Vinegar and then put coconut oil.on it. Should I continue with this? Trying to shrink before removal.Thank you.
Hi all, cant believe it actually worked. After reading nearly all the reviews on this I was expecting the castor oil to work in a few days, it took 5 nearly 6 weeks.
We brought the cat to the vet and to get the tumor removed - it would have cost nearly 500 euro and because of my cats age of 15. It was risky to put him under, I found this site and decided to try it. at first the tumor (or cyst or large skin tag, not sure which) turned black and after about 2/3 weeks the black fell off and there was a pinky red lump still left, again we applied the castor oil and again the black scab appeared over it while it continued to grow, only a week later and this fell off revealing another smaller redish pink lump. We continued to apply castor oil this time soaking the growth in it, the growth was just under the cats eye, connected to the bottom lid and the cat is quite fiesty so it was hard to apply at times. 2 weeks went by and I was starting to lose hope as it just continued to grow and the cat started scratching it until it bled. But two days later and it all fell off completely and you wouldnt ever know anything was there.
Since applying castor oil for a week to my cats fatty tumor it has opened and looks painful. It is under her arm and is causing the leg to swell hugely. Is this normal? should I continue applying castor oil since it is open? She has a cluster of smaller ones too. I tried adding turmeric to her food and she refused it. Please help.

My dog has a possible sarcoma lump on her armpit. I have mixed castor oil and turmeric and have been applying it topically. Also giving turmeric capsules in food. After a month, the lump is the same size, but oddly the skin around it is red and bloody today. I heard that lumps seem to get worse before getting better, but the lump is the same color, the skin around it is red. I am wondering if the friction of the paste is causing a skin irritation since its in the armpit area. Anybody seen this?
My elder Schnauzer/maltese mix has developed a bulbous growth on the edge of his gum right next to his incisor tooth. My friend recommended trying castor oil on it. Would it be safe and could it help since it's in his mouth? Any suggestions?
I've applied castor oil to my dogs tumor on the side of her body. My question is, The tumor is now looking VERY scary, ugly, deformed, bleeding, and oozy. What does this mean? Is it breaking down? I try to keep it clean and bandage it, but she usually ends up ripping them off and licking the site. I have stopped the castor oil and try putting neosporin. Sometimes it looks like pus is forming but then it goes away. Any suggestions thanks.

I have a goffin cockatoo that has a small tumor on the inside of his leg. I don't have any avian vets in my area. None within 2000 miles, so I do my best to care for my babies. I love them with all my heart. Two of them mutilate (both males). The one with the tumor, I have been heating the castor oil and putting it on his leg, then wrapping with gauze and leaving overnight.
I read about how it helps dogs, but will it help shrink the tumor in my parrot's leg? I know it bothers him and I give him natural pain killers. He mutilates that same leg. The tumor showed up about two weeks ago and I started the castor oil about 1 week ago. I sure could use some help with any suggestions.

Need Help Please: My sweet pup has a Nasal Tumor that has taken over her left eye, is protruding, but not broken through her skin yet and is also in the middle of her nose and the top of her head. I have been putting a Chinese Herb topically with vitamin E on it & it is now "suddenly" getting larger VERY QUICKLY. Last night I put Castor Oil on it & she seemed more uncomfortable.... Yet I realize that the tumor, as most write, gets larger before it goes away. She also is taking Herbs internally & just recently started on an NSAID.. Only giving her 1/2 dose prescribed. Question: Should I continue with both the Chinese Herb & vitamin E TOPICALLY during the day & alternate w/ CASTOR OIL.. Using it as well during the day & leaving it on all night? Or does that seem too much?
My goal is to get rid of the tumor asap w/out hurting my pup. Obviously Cancer hurts. Feedback from all dealing with a similar situation/Nasal Tumor or "who have had current success" using Castor Oil or? would be so very very greatly appreciated. Thank you to all who respond as I am scared. Also, please tell me how long it took to get the tumor to go away, did it bleed/ooze/get infected & if you gave anything natural to your pup for pain? Thank you again. My email: firstname.lastname@example.org
P. S. At her last Vet visit after being on the Herbs for only four weeks, the tumor shrunk! It did not grow or stay the same which was a true miracle. But as I wrote above, I can see I have very recently made it much larger from what I am putting on the eye & tumor topically. Is this the STORM BEFORE THE EXIT OF THE HORRIBLE TUMOR?
Our 10 year old dog..all of a sudden grew over night a hard lump on her left back leg right above her paw 3 weeks ago..
Since I'm a senior I could not lift my 85 pound dog into the car....I took a picture of my sweet Molly's back leg..and took it to the vet that had seen her for 5 years..( She is a farmers daughter country vet)
The look in the vets eyes was horrible..then she says that all she can do is surgically remove the tumored bone and attempt some chemo and radiation to the tune of $7000-$12000.00..but would not suggest it because doing that procedure would not prolong my dogs life any longer than not doing the surgery.. I almost passed out with fear..gained my composure and asked for any holistic methods out there since nobody in my town has $7000-$12000 laying around in their cookie jar....
Frantic I started searching for holistic ways to help my dog..I came across this site.. It is day 8 of putting castor oil on my dogs leg 5 times a day.. I am praying like the other people reports in here... that the egg shaped hard lump surrounding my dogs back leg will start to shrink.. So far no shrinking..
Question..If it in fact does start to shrink..and if it bursts..WHAT do you apply to the opening when it bursts??
Again this is only the beginning of the second week..No shrinkage as of yet..She is still eating like a champion morning and evening...going to the mail box down the drive way with me and going out to get the newspaper..on three legs and holding her back leg up.. she would walk/hop around the block on her leash if I let her.. (on three legs)
Her spirits are high for a 10 year old doggy..
One concern is last week after about 3 days of the caster oil...She started hopping on her good back leg and pulling her bad leg up..She is eating like a champ and still racing outside to the fence with my other dogs to inform the neighbors dogs in barking that she is STILL the big dog...
EVERYBODY PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR MOLLYBIRDIE (in Texas)!!!!

Castor Oil is working to shrink my dog's tumor. I have a 17 year old Shih Tzu. She has a benign malinoma tumor on the pad of her front foot. In 2008 she had a major operation to remove it. This included the amputation of one toe so that the skin could be used to build back the large walking pad. The tumor came back 2 more times and was removed using a local anethesia. The last time it came back it could not be removed because there wasn't enough skin left. Since she is 17 we thought that she would pass before the tumor got too large. WRONG. The tumor grew and grew. It was about the size of 3 pencil erasers. A second tumor started on the same pad just about the first tumor and a third one had developed just below the pad in the wrist area. It became infected 5 weeks ago and she is now taking an antibiotic.
I found this site and began applying castor oil 5 weeks ago. I started by simply putting some on my finger and spreading it on the open, bleeding large tumor and covering it with a little pink sock. I would apply the Oil 6 times a day. I did this for 3 weeks. The tumor started to grow, which I expected because I understood it had to grow before breaking down. At this point I cut up a cotton shirt and applied lots of castor oil to all of the tumors then I wrapped it in the cotton, followed by adhesive pet bandage, followed by a fake fur, homemade mitten. I do this 2 to 4 times a day. I have been doing this for 2 weeks now. The large tumor is gone and healed. I have continued the treatment to get rid of the other 2 tumors and today I noticed that the small tumor is starting to shrink and the large one in the wrist is softer and smaller. I have taken pictures so I actually have proof that this works. I wanted to share this because I am so grateful for finding this cure. I would like to thank all of you who sung the praises of Castor Oil and took the time to write down your stories. I hope that this can help to give someone the hope that I needed and received.
