Hello everyone, I hope someone can help me please.
My 13 year old Newfoundland cross Dalmation has a very large lump on her front leg. I have been giving her Turmeric/coconut oil/black pepper for last year for her Arthritis but when she was at vets a few months back for suspected stroke/vestibular they took some cells to see what the lump was but it came back unsure. So just before Christmas they took some more and it came back with 'moderate Mesenchymal cells', 'moderate Cytoplasm', 'minimal Pleomorphism', Haemangiotericytoma considered'. Spoke to vet last night and she said it was a carpal tumor and due to her age and her possible stroke she wouldn't be able to operate to remove. She went on to say they need her in for an x ray to see if it has spread to her bone and if it continues to grow (which it is) and splits open there is nothing more that could be done.
I am going out of my mind with worry and just want to help her the best I can and reduce the lump or better still eliminate it. She has the turmeric mix once a day (two heaped teaspoons turmeric, four coconut oil, 12 grinds of black pepper). Should I increase the amount or apply it topically? I was worried about applying it topically due to it possibly spitting open after vets said if it opens or abcess then that's it for her. Please please can someone help me?
