Question to Rob About Turpentine for Large Mass on Dog

Posted By Deirdre (CT) on 08/01/2021

"Hi Rob,

Thank you so much for your always interesting and detailed remedies and amazing stories on Earth Clinic!

I just finished reading your suggestion to a reader about pure gum spirits turpentine for a tumor in a cat's ear. Would you also suggest topical turpentine for a large tumor on a dog too? My 15 1/2 year old golden retriever has a mass pushing into her right shoulder blade that the vet thinks may be going into the bone based on xrays. The biopsy results came back inconclusive. I'm doing a few hydrogen peroxide 12% food grade drops in her food twice a day for the past 3 days and there's a significant increase in her energy, but not sure if it's shrinking this mass.

Appreciate any suggestions. Thank you so much!"

"Yes, Turpentine is safe for all animals that I know of. It's the liquid blood of the pine tree. I remember hearing a story of a hunter in eastern KY and his dog got bitten by a copperhead or rattlesnake to the face. Poor dog head was swollen to the size of a basketball. Some people told him to put the dog down. But, he decided to rub turpentine with a cottonball all over the dog's head. He repeated this several times during the day. The swelling came down and the dog lived into his old years.

If the dog has a large mass, I would also give them turmeric powder in their food. Adjust dosage to weight.

Turpentine and Kerosene are universal healers.

My grandmother was my babysitter til I was 10 years old. Anytime one of us kids got a cut, sting or scrap, she would put kerosene on a nasty rag and wipe the area. It was the only medicine I knew of til I got older. lol"

"Thank you so much for your reply, Rob! I got the Diamond G turp today and started applying it to the mass where the vet had shaved the area to do a biopsy. Would applying the turpentine with DMSO be better?

I can tell you that the turpentine is causing the muscles around her shoulder blades to twitch A LOT starting about 10 minutes after each application, so something is going on. Will keep you updated. Thanks again!"
