I have read many of the posts on this subject, and would like to add another remedy that will shrink and help subaceous cysts disappear. CASTOR OIL!! If you apply it, do so topically, not internally. My precious GSD is prone to these cysts, and I have gotten rid of every one of them by applying castor oil once or twice a day. It's best if low heat can be applied, but not necessary. It does take time, but certainly saves a vet visit. Also, any vet that tells you a subaceous, benign cyst must be surgically removed for $600 is being dishonest. I am going to start my baby on turmeric as well, and hope it will help alleviate any future cysts and help her joints. Thanks for listening.
