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.

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.

Pretty sure perineal Hernia's require surgery.

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.

I have been giving my dog who has mast cell tumor.. ( already removed surgically & returned with a vengeance just weeks later) TURMERIC .. along with a cancer diet and many other herbs and supplements .. I have been using turmeric powder and also curcumin capsules ( concentrated turmeric extract) twice a day .. she was given 8 weeks to live and the vet said he could only make her comfortable.. that was 4 weeks ago and she was in poor state.. barely moving barely eating... she is now looking normal.

I know I am not out of the woods yet BUT..she has put on weight is eating like a horse and back to her usual self. I also have been using castor oil topically on the tumor and it has just started to open up and weep and bleed .. so using colloidal silver to prevent infection and continue with the oil and see what happens.. but she is happy and shows no sign of pain...so Turmeric has helped her tremendously.

My 17 year old black lab has a tumor growing out of his elbow. In the past few days it seems like it is growing. Other than this, he is in good health for his age. Does the tumeric sound appropriate? The tumor is almost the size of a large bing cherry. Any advice is appreciated. The vet suggests "he has lived a good life".

I give my ( cat sized) dog turmeric.. she wouldn't eat it if I mixed with food ... so I bought empty capsules and fill the small part with turmeric powder plug the end with steak I minced in the blender and rolled a tiny ( small as possible) ball of meat with the half capsule inside . If I make the meat balls small she gulps them down capsule and all -IF I make them bigger she has to chew and she discovers the capsule and spits it out .. so keep them small .. even if you have to do it twice to get the dose into her. I do this for all the supplements she is on for cancer .. so far tumor shrinking and she is doing well .. vet said she was dying but she's looking good in the last 2 weeks.

Essiac Tea! Yes I bought some but that is the one thing I am not sure HOW to administer? she hates the tea flavour wont drink it... I could syringe it but am already doing that with other natural treatments ( so didnt want to attack her with the syringe again) The tea is Powdered form so can you just use the powder in foo ( like if I hide in in a capsule)??

I was so hopeful reading all the great successes here for our sweet "children". Thanks for the info.

I've been giving my beloved 15yo, 25 lb Puggle Turmeric for months and nothing. I first was giving 1/4-1/2 tsp Organic turmeric from the store for 6 weeks until I found out that was the wrong turmeric! I was to use the 95% kind. So have been giving him 2 (500mg) caps a day sprinkled in his food (along with Milk Thistle, and Superfood probiotic powder) and no change at all.

It hasn't grown but it is the size of an orange on his side for over 6 months. :( Everything is as good as before this benign fatty tumor (had vet test him). His appetite, water consumption, etc are all good, and he walks/jogs a couple miles/day with me.

I just can't understand why nothing is changing or shrinking. It's so sad.

Treating a beagle for tumors. Used Turmeric salve for a week. Then started feeding her turmeric in her food. She weighs 30 pounds and was giving her 700 mg once per day. Also 1/2 t apple cider vinegar. did this for about a week. Tumor split open and started to leak, and got bigger.

Now for the last two days the tumor seems to hurt her when we try to clean it up. Can not squeeze it because it hurts her to bad. Is a very large lump now. She has diarrhea is not eating, drinks a little water. Have tried rice water. All kinds of goodies, treats, chicken, turkey, beef. She normally eats everything in sight. She seems sick. I am not sure how to take care of the tumor now that it is leaking. HELP!

I got no feedback at all concerning my Beagle. With further research we found that we were giving her too much turmeric. A quarter spoonful is too much. You have to do it by milligrams. She is better now. We will start over with a greatly reduced amount of turmeric.

About 5 years ago I had just taken in a stray dog (Black mouth Cur) and within a few months she got a tiny bump (Tumor) on top of her front toe.

It got bigger and bigger and I tried soaking it in Epsom salt as a friend advised but it didn't work to get rid of it.

It grew a little more and looked like a beautiful gum ball with a swirl of nice colors! I remember a product I used on a real bad wound a neighbors dog had, a product called BLU KOTE by Dr. Naylor! It sprays on purple. It worked on my neighbors dog's wound so I figured I would try it on the tumor. And it worked! I would soap up and rinse the foot and tumor then spray the Blu Kote spray on the tumor.

The tumor eventually dried up and fell off leaving no scar. But I don't know what type tumor it was.

Diane,

Thanks for posting the info about your dog's tumor. My cat has a growth of some sort on her chest and nothing has worked. It is in a spot inside her left front leg where a bandage doesn't work.

I just contacted Dr. Naylor and asked if Blue Kote be injested as cats lick all the time. I told him about Dr. Simoncini?? from Italy and that he says cancer is a fungus (Blue Kote is a fungicide according to the company) and he uses baking soda to coat the tumors and they vanish. Perhaps the fungicide property of Blue Kote is why your dogs tumor dried up.

Does the purple stain? My cat's underbelly is white.

Do you know if this product is natural or chemicals?

Hi Patricia,

The Blu Kote stains but only for awhile.

I used to get some purple on my finger and the stain didn't last long. Sorry I don't know much else about this product. Only that it worked on the dog's tumor on her paw and you better ask if it can be used on a cat.

I notice that some products that are good for dogs and not good for cats. Blu Kote is great on wounds for dogs and other farm animals. My neighbor's males dogs got into a bad fight and one dog had a nasty wound on it's leg and my husband sprayed Blu Kote on the bad wound and it healed nicely.

Hey Diane,

Per the wiki page: Blu Kote contains "Acriflavine has been shown to have anti-cancer activity by inhibition of HIF-1 which prevents blood vessels growing to supply tumors with blood and interferes with glucose uptake and use."

FYI Blu Kote is commonly available at farm supply or fleet farm type stores, though you may find it in walmart and the like in rural areas. The Active Ingredients: Sodium Propionate, Gentian Violet, Acriflavine,

Inactive Ingredients:
Water, Isopropyl alcohol, Urea, Glycerine, Sodium hydroxide.

Hydrogen Peroxide is OK for cats on wounds.

Hi, so happy to read these success stories. I have one too. Doubted myself before now. My Rottie/shep/border collie cross had a horrible growth right at the tear duct on his eye and it was growing. I read about the castor oil and aloe combo to shrink tumours. But around the eye, I was terrified to do anything. Got brave and dabbed just a tiny bit plus started giving him tsp or so of turmeric with olive oil to eat. They like the taste of turmeric. The tumour shrunk to almost nothing. I have also noticed that my dog's tumour grows when he eats any food with wheat in it-so I read the labels on dog treats, only choosing ones made with rice. Makes a big difference.

Hi Linda! How long did it take for the cyst to shrink after giving your dog castor oil and turmeric? Mine also has one growing on his upper eyelid and it got infected so now he's on antibiotics but it seems to be getting bigger. I'm desperate for alternative options.

I have an older white lab that developed a tumor beside his genital area and he kept it inflamed by licking it. I started him on 1 teaspoon per feeding, twice a day, of turmeric on his food. He did not reject it at all, and the tumor has now shrunk and he no longer pays attention to it. It's not totally gone but it's definitely shrunk and no longer inflamed. Turmeric works. I did not add molasses.

I am at my wits end trying all sorts of potions and lotions to fix this problem.

I look forward to your reply.

I have a 10 pound Shih Tzu, she is 15 years old and our vet said he is very happy with how good her liver, heart, and blood pressure is.

She has a 3 inch wide tumor on her head above her ear, we started mixing a little bit of turmeric in with her food, and today is started bleeding. I don't know if it's because she has been trying to get the cone off from around her head or not. Has anyone else experienced this?

I think they are suppose to split open so they can drain. The hard part is keeping them from licking it. and scratching it open even more. It looks terrible, but how else is the fluid going to get out unless it is absorbed back into their system. Our dog has many cysts. The one on her neck is leaking. The rest are about the same. We were giving her to much Turmeric. She got sick from it. Its been two weeks. We are just starting her back on it again hoping it will make all of the cysts shrink. Including the one on her neck that is a open wound.

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.

Personally, I think shaving the area would be ideal just because it would end up being so messy to have the oil in the coat all the time. It would make it easier to make sure you have gotten the skin covered well with the oil, too.

My Australian Shepherd age 8 has a growth on her tummy. Vet said it was like diggie breast cancer and would cost 600. to remove it. It grew within a week though on abdomen from a tennis ball size to double which worried me beyond words..then she developed a growth on back of one leg size of a golf ball. We have had her since a baby and don't want to lose her. I have been giving her excess garlic daily and excess vitamin c as read so much on research saying both are great at killing cancer cells. Her growths seem to have stopped now. I go through a bottle of rexall dollar general type vit c chewables 500 mg each and rexall garlic 500 mg soft gel pills which she gobbles up them alone and vitamin c so I am thinking they are giving her releif as she will walk to table when wants some. Her spirits are great and no signs of distress. The turmeric and castor oil though has me curious if it would work on her since growth is on abdomen where vital organs are.. could I just give her turmeric pills? or is it a risk?

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.

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.

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
