Seabuckthorn Oil   0  0   

Posted by Beanie (Newhall, Ca) on 07/14/2012

I searched this site many times looking for a remedy for a large tumor that appeared on my dog's head above her eye. She is a bichon and is 13yrs old. I tried the castor oil faithfully about 6 or more times a day for weeks but it did not work for me. The lump was getting larger and harder. I stumbled on seabuckthorn berry oil and started giving her half a dropper every day. It's been a little over one month and the tumor which had been there for about 9 months is completely flat!! It just amounts to raised skin now. I wanted to share this because I thought it was amazing and I always come here looking for help so I hope this helps someone. There is also a seabuckthorn seed oil available but I bought the berry oil not the seed oil. It tastes better and has slightly different make up. It is for human consumption - they both are - so it is safe for your pet. I guessed at the amount and it seems fine for my dog who is about 19 pounds. If your dog has lumps please try this. It also gives her more energy. I don't know if I can say where I got this but it is available on the internet. It comes in a small bottle with a dropper. It is easy to administer as she just licks it from her bowl. I sometimes rub some on her gums and it helps to keep them healthy and reduce bad breath odor. Please post here if your dog was helped by this. We need to keep our dogs healthy without drugs.

Hello, my best friend Freddy is a 19year old Shepard chow mix that I rescued 15 years ago. He is my world. He developed a fatty tumor on his side that started out about 4 years ago. The vet said don't worry about it, he is not suffering from it. Well, about 3 weeks ago he started licking it and it started out the size of a walnut. Now it's the size of a baseball. Every time the vet declined surgery cause they claimed it was not bothering him. Well now it is a problem. I have it bandaged and the vet now won't do surgery cause he is too old now and they said he won't do surgery cause of his age and they say the anesthsia can kill him. So I have been in the last day thinking about a vitamin called nuVet. The reviews are amazing, saying it shrinks the tumor but when something sounds to good to be true it usually is. So I came across your story. My dog is 71 lbs. What dosage do you suggest for his body weight and where can I get this sea buckthorn berry oil??? Please help.

Get some turmeric (real cheap, in bulk, at the Indian store... That's India). Add 1/2 tablespoon to his food, and mix it all up, each time you feed him. I did this with my golden retriever who had a cyst which was the size of a pea when it first started, but grew to the size of a quarter and got all red and oozing when her immune system was compromized. Within 2 weeks the cyst disappeared!

I'm not guaranteeing that this will work for your dog's tumor, but it might.

Hi, I just read this. Sorry to hear about your dog. Please do a search online at Amazon or iherb.com for the seabuckthorn berry oil. It is not that hard to find. Since your dog is 71 pounds I think you could give him 2 to three droppers per day. Maybe one dropper in the morning and one in the evening. You can always adjust it. It sounds like a lot but it is a fruit oil so it really is like food. However, this is not professional advice. I know it sounds good to be true but it really shrunk the tumors on my dog. She is still with me. Please try it. And, best of luck to you. Please post here to let us all know if it helped so others will know too.

p.s. As I posted, my dog is 19 pounds and one dropper full (not drop) was a good dose for her.

Shark Cartilage   1  0

[YEA]  Tumors in pets; Several years ago my cat developed a mass which my vet said was a tumor. I was taking shark cartilage for osteoarthritis (which did relieve the pain) and added some to my cats food. After a few weeks I took her back to the vet for an exam. He found that the tumor had liquified. If you read the book "SHARKS DON'T GET CANCER" it claims the shark cartilage cuts off the blood supply to the growth.

Can I use the Ted's above alkalinity formula for an oral tumor my cat has? It really fills much of the space in the back of his throat. I have been doing hydrogen peroxide therapy alternately with Mesosilver 2x day on each one. I understand adding silver to h2o2 makes it much more powerful but am searching for how much of one to the other to mix together. Have been using slightly less than. 5 solution of hydrogen peroxide orally and I also spray in his mouth on the tumor.

[YEA]  Hi,

I have an adopted black lab, age 15, "Lady", with a large tumor that appeared on her right leg joint (started as elbow callus appearance). The Vet stated that I would probably have to "put her down" soon because she will stop walking due to leg discomfort. He did not recommend surgery or chemo; she does have an obstructed nasal passage since someone probably kicked and crushed her face at some point in her life. She often gets antibiotics for her nasal infections - we have to carefully feed her to keep food out of her nose.

I am writing to say thank you for your directions and the Castor Oil... it's been nothing less than amazing!

I began treatment a week ago as you directed and the large, mushy mass is now 1/3 the original size, no edema. She is walking around and even rolling in the grass. I will continue all phases of her treatment and wish to say thanks on our behalf, she feels very good, frisky and most importantly, she is able to truly enjoy her days more.

I have a few questions and I hope you can help. My Lab, Trev, is 13 1/2 years old. He has a non-cancerous tumor on his left leg. He has had surgery for removal but it keeps coming back. It is now bleeding constantly unless I keep it wrapped. Because of his age, the doctor does not want to perform surgery because it is so large it would mean removal of his leg. His back hips are bad and he has trouble getting up. Every time I change his wrap, it bleeds. I read your column about castor oil and bloodroot. I tried castor oil months ago and it did not help. I have never tried anything else. I don't know where to get bloodroot. If I can help him, I want to do what I can for him. According to the vet, he will have to be on antibiotics for the rest of his life and I have to change his bandage (it's a large wrap with an ace bandage around it), every two days. I am trying to avoid infection. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Marilyn

Marilyn,

How is your Trev? I have an Italian Greyhound that is 13 and she has the same thing that Trev has. I had it biopsied and the vet called it 'hemangiopericytoma'. He said there was really no cure. It is a malignancy. It will keep growing back until it ruptures with bloody tissue everywhere, then maybe take it off again. But given her age I won't do that again. I have been looking all over the internet for some type of cure. I have seen several sites where people have used flaxseed oil mixed with cottage cheese twice a day and say that it has worked. Look for this on the internet to get a correct dosage. I hope this answer is not too late and good luck. I started my Lilly on it yesterday.

Hi Diana, ive read about your dog with hemangiopericytoma tumor, my 13 yrs old siberian husky has the same thing, I was wondering if the budwig diet helped? I started my dog on it 2 wks ago.

I have successfully used Ted's Remedies and now I have a new problem. My dog just had puppies January 11, 2009. One of them was born with what I thought was a tumor but after using these remedies for 2 weeks with no results I have discovered that what I thought was a tumor is actually a perineal Hernia. There is not cure posted on this sight for hernias. I am trying a fully raw diet, castor oil, vitamin c and e. What else can I do to get rid of this hideous looking thing. It is like cottage cheese right by her vagina and when I squeeze it I can hear it ooze. I am thinking cayenne pepper, what can help my puppy. She is very happy and playful. She does not even know that it exists.

It sounds like an umbillica hernia and when the dog gets spayed or neutered the vet can close it then. Do NOT push on it as hernias are small openings in the muscle wall and the pups intestines are just poking out some. If you mess with it you can cause problems. Many dogs live they entire lives with them, but better to close if already undergoing anesthesia.

Turmeric   6  0

[YEA]  I would like to thank all the writers here for your advice on reducing fatty tissue tumours in dogs. I started treatment on my 13 yrs old dog two and half weeks ago. I put turmeric in his food every time he ate and rubbed the tumour with castor/tumeric combination. The "size of a golfball" type tumour ruptured after enlarging and shrinking last week. I have been treating with anti-biotic and the castor oil/turmeric pack and wrapping it (i sit with dog for an hour each time because as soon as my back is turned, the bandage is off and he is licking it). The size of the tumour has decreased by 70% at least and seems to be regenerating skin and closing slowly. It looked really nasty but I cleaned it 3-4 times a day and applied anti-biotics. I am happy with what has happened so far and am very thankful for the advice as a I am a pensioner and vets, etc are just too expensive. My biggest problem is keeping him from taking the bandage off. He looks happier and is moving around better. My fingers are crossed that it will be nearly all gone and healed within a few more weeks.

Update: I have been using the turmeric and castor oil paste for nearly four weeks now. In the last day or so, I have added aloe vera to the paste. The tumour is open but no infection and is clean, no smell or weepiness. It looks as if the skin is re-growing and closing the "wound". I use equal parts of turmeric, castor oil and aloe vera in paste (1 teaspoon each) aloe vera is straight from garden and I open leaves and scrape out gel to mix in with the turmeric and castor oil. I couldn't be more happier with the results. EARTH CLINIC: is there any way to put up before and after photos to show people how effective this has been for my dog. And thank you Earth Clinic for this site, it has been invaluable.

EC: Yes, please email the photos to staff(at)earthclinic.com and we'll post them in your thread.

I have a 9 yr shihtzu that has a fatty tumor on his side and it just hangs down and flops. I have been giving him dissolve formula from paw healer. About a week ago it has starting bleeding and is red does not look good at all. This tumor is about the size of a big grapefruit if not maybe little bigger. Surgery is not really an option here he has a heart murmur. It seems to have gotten litlle bigger since I gave him the dissolve formula. Have read alot of good reviews on here for remedies for dogs with fatty tumors. Could you please help me? I'm really desperate at this time to help him. Also am afraid this thing is going to burst and what can I do if this happens? what is the best thing I can do for him now. Am making little paste with tumeric and olive oil and apply that on there but he keeps licking it off. Please help me with your suggestions and what I have to order and what to do with it. Isn't tumeric a hot spice to be giving a dog? thank you very much.

Hi, This may help. You should google food grade hydrogen peroxide. And also hydrogen peroxide therapy. It is good for both humans and animals. I am currently taking it myself, for increased energy. And if you read through the research on line, you will see that there has been alot of success with tumors shrinking during a course of hydrogen peroxide therapy. It sounds like your pet's problem is farther along but it's worth a try. If you do give him the therapy be sure not to put the H2O2 with water in a metal bowl, but rather a ceramic or other non metal bowl. I hope this helps and I hope your pet gets better and out of pain if any. Good luck to you.

Hi there we have a golden retreiver who was recntly diagnosed with a cancerous tumor on her back leg. she is diabetic as well - also recent 1yr. We rescued her - prior to her living with us she was severly neglegted and abused. She has had a happy life with us and we would like to keep her has happy and healthy for as long as possible. Can tumeric help with canerous tumors - most of what I have read seems to be related to cysts. She is about 80lbs and we really dont know how old she is but we estimate her to be around 10yrs old.

Any feed back would certainly be appreciated.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]   I have a 10 year old, 20lb terrier. She has had a benign fatty tumor just above her chest bone and below the collar line for several years and about 1/2 a golf ball in size. I have been giving her about 1/2 tsp of turmeric in her food every day for about 3 weeks. It has shrunk considerably I may up the dosage for the next few weeks to see if we can completely dissolve the tumor.

[YEA]  Just wanted to pass on the great success I had with turmeric and our dog.

Our 7 year old shepard husky cross had about a 6" x 3" fatty lipoma on his right side, just under the shoulder blade (confirmed by vet by drawing fluid out of it). It was very noticable. Looked like he was fatter on one side. I had read about turmeric on this site and shortly after went to the health food store and bought a scoop of tumeric from the bulk herb section. Cheap... don't buy the capsules, way more expensive.

I simply sprinkled about 2 tsps of it on his dry food and mixed it up with a little olive oil, twice/day. Within 3 weeks I could not believe how much it had shrunk. Another 3 weeks later.... completely gone! Amazing! I have never before seen the benefits of a natural herb/spice work so well & so quickly.

I actually have a small fatty lipoma on my leg, and I'm trying it. You're supposed to mix it with black pepper so I just mix it up in a little water and down it quickly. Hope it works for me. All sorts of other benefit of it as well. In fact I can't believe how much more energy I have. vj

I have a 13 yr old lab mix that has some fatty tumors as well as something on her right flank and possibly the right one. I took her to a holistic vet for acupuncture as it helped a dog that we had years ago. She said that it could be a tumor but without X-rays she wouldn't know for sure. Maggie has had two bloat surgeries within the last 3 years and I don't wont to take the risk of putting her to sleep again. She is not limping and is still very active and eating well. I have decided to try the turmeric as well as the castor oil. I mixed the turmeric 1/2 tsp, with about a tablespoon of local honey and she licked it right down. I am not sure what to do with the castor oil. Do I make a poultice for her hip or does she ingest it? The vet ran blood work and everything looked pretty good except for her creatinine was a point over normal. The vist was close to 400$ and as with most of the folks here have other pets and limited income. So I am going to give this a try and will keep you posted. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. She eats taste of the wild salmon along with pork meat that I cook, about 2-1/2-3 cups daily. I have her blood test that I can send if it would help with suggestions. Thank you glsmith14

[YEA]  At the end of May, I discovered a small lump on my dogs neck just below the ear. I watched it and in July she was scratching it and it had grown quite a bit. I took her to the Vet and they wanted to remove it and biopsy it to the tune of $600. And they couldn't give me any idea of what it was. I decided to try the turmeric and started giving her 1/4 tsp 2 times a day in her food on July 20th.. She weighs 48 lbs. On Aug 5th it developed a dark hard scab which fell off by itself on Aug 8th. Now the lump is going down and I'm hoping it will be totally gone soon.. I will update on it soon.

[YEA]  My 13 y old dog, Jamie has had fatty tumors for several years, now. When he was eleven, the vet removed one at the "elbow" joint of his front leg but it has since grown back. He was dealing with it though, and the vet recommended doing nothing to the re-grown tumor, due to his advanced age and declining health.

Then about 6 weeks ago I noticed a different large, red, golf-ball growth in the same area. This was in addition to the re-grown tumor. The new growth looked like a water balloon.

That's when I started surfing the net looking for options. One night, I spent several hours reading about herbal medicine, and TCM/TCVM vs Western philosophies about cancer and tumors ... interesting stuff, but I just wanted to help my dog.

Also, as an aside, I noticed that Jamie's breath smelled a lot worse than usual ... (sort of sour.) He was in bad shape, and I was in the middle of a move.

There are "vets" out there selling their special blend of herbs and medicines ... but I wanted to "know" what I was giving my dog. So I was looking for something I could get from any herbal supply store.

Affter reading information here and elsewhere, I decided to try curcumin (which is a turmeric extract) It cost about $10/ bottle, over the internet and comes in capsule form. I take 1 capsule apart and sprinkle it over his food (I feed him twice a day).

After 3-4 days the big red tumor burst IT SMELLED AWFUL (sour like his breath) and it continued to leak for about a week. At first, the liquid that came out of the tumor was clear,and greasy. Later there was pus, but there was less and less each day.

By this time, we had moved, and Jamie was still moping around ... and I honestly did not know if he was in pain, or depressed about the move, or what. I decided to keep giving him 2 curcumin capsules a day (since it seemed to make the tumor go away), 1 with each meal, and I also cleaned the wound area with hydrogen peroxide, and kept the wound covered. Jamie did seem to be getting better, but I did not know if it was wishful thinking on my part ... so I took him to the vet a week later.

The vet said that the tumor had ulcerated, which was not good, and he had lots of tumors... but he did not recommend putting him down at this time. He said that this is just what happens to old dogs. He cleaned and shaved the area around the tumor, prescribed an antibiotic, wrapped the wound and sent us home (and charged $250).

It has been a month now, and Jamie has continued to improve. The (red)tumor has "dried up, there is no pus. He still limps a little (but he limped before). Also, the regrown tumor has shrunk ... he still has other tumors, though. I do not know if this is a "cure" ... but I do think that it has bought us some time.

I wanted to share this because I remember how frantic I was 6 weeks, when I was looking for information that could help.

I wanted to give an update:

Jamie passed away on 9/26 (he was euthanized). During the summer, the tumor on his front leg, and the one between his toes had cleared up so he wasn't limping on the front legs anymore, but then his back legs started to drag more as he walked. Also, he gradually lost his appetite, and everything slowly worsened over the summer. The vet had said (in the spring)that the tumors had spread, and I think that this was the cancer just taking its course. Nevertheless, his last few weeks of life were full. As I said earlier, I thought that the tumeric was not going to be a "cure" but it would buy us time, and I think that is what happened. I honestly believe that the vet had written him off back in May. We got to spend the whole summer together and the past few weeks we got to visit many places "for the last time". I would like to thank the people who created this website and those who posted information to this board.

[YEA]   Hi Dogs that are fixed & 6 years old just get fat cysts or tumors, whatever U want to call them. Sometimes they pop up over nite. So Ur NOT necessarily doing anything wrong--Its just part of nature.

My ShihTzu had a fat cyst the size of a pea above his ear... it looked gross.

This sounds mean, but IT DID NOT HURT MY DOG.. OTHERWISE HE WOULD'VE YELPED & MOVED HIS HEAD AWAY FAST... He let's me know immediately if he's ever unhappy... He's Not shy... Anyway, I stuck a sewing pin in the cyst... To see if maybe it was sebacious... I then squeezed it... nothing came out, so I assumed it was a solid fat mass.

I put a Curcumin (Tumeric Root) capsule I got at the health food store in a pill pocket. He ate it & ate the 1 for his sister--she refused to eat it. I smelt the capsule & couldn't smell anything, but U know how sensitive dogs noses are.

Then 2 weeks later I gave him another...

1 week later I noticed a crust on the (cyst) bump, so I scraped it off with my finger nail & smelt it... Really Grose Smelling! I then squeezed the cyst from the base--VERY IMPORTANT.. I KNOW A MAN WHO LET THE BARBER SQUEEZE A ZIT ON HIS FOREHEAD... BUT HE DIDN'T GET ALL THE SEBUM OUT... SOME WENT BACK IN THE BLOOD STREAM & HE DIED OF AN ANURISM... SO HAVE UR VET DO THIS IF U THINK SOMETHING BAD MIGHT HAPPEN..

Anyway, it may have gotten slightly bigger after I started giving him the curcumin, but nothing really noticable & there was no oozing & grose open wound like the others said... When I squeezed it... 4... What looked like flat empty sebacious cysts came out... They stunk... There was about 1/4 of the bump/cyst left & no more would come out & he didn't want me to touch it anymore... He was Not in pain, but he was just getting annoyed with me messing with it, so I left it alone... The stretched skin eventually went back to normal & the cyst was totally gone in 2 weeks. Its been 1 month & I'm sure its not coming back.

This is a way more natural & cheaper solution... Than spending $400 like my friend just did to get a sebacious cyst cut off her cocker spaniel's back. From what I read here... they also come back after an operation, whereas, with the Tumeric/Curcumin they don't.

Thanks U Jesus for the Natural Cure! Thanks EarthClinic 4 Being here--Love this web-site!

just a comment regarding apparent cures using turmeric or any remedy that seems to cure a tumor, cyst, or any type ailment. If a remedy works, maybe it should be continued to possibly insure that the cause has been eliminated so it does not recur. If the animal or person is responding to a remedy or diet, as soon as you stop and go back to the environment that created the ailment, most likely it comes back. My Laddie is 14 and I just noticed a lump growing on his chest. I heard of turmeric for humans a few years back in a health magazine. Glad to know it is okay for pets. Need to pick up some for him. Thank you!
