Turmeric for Fluid-Filled Cyst on Dog

Posted By Sandy (CA) on 11/16/2021

"My 12yrs f shepherd I noticed a large looked like fluid filled sack between back legs. Having just had surgery myself & we have 2 rott pups, hard to see. I read up on site. Gave her yesterday turmeric. My granddaughter was at vet so I took pic to send to her. This a.m. looks like it has 2 holes & no longer filled with fluid. Looks like it burst open. Now what?? All 3 try to lick. Put warm castor oil compress on or get her antibiotics??"

"Oh my, my 14-year-old Shepdrd mix has had a softball-size cyst on his right shoulder for years. Something happened last Friday night. He hurt and could barely walk, so I came to see what I could do. I started putting turmeric in his food twice daily (1 tsp) each, then backed off to 1/2 tsp. It's been four days, and today, it exploded. Wow, but I think we are onto healing. He can already walk better."
