Kelp helped reduce tumors in my boxer years ago.
Hi all - thanks in advance for your help. My Lexi developed mammary tumors last December but only showed symptoms recently. I took her to the surgeon who quoted me $3000 to remove them but to be honest I just don't have it. What is happening is they swell up once a week and she is uncomfortable and lethargic. In a couple of days they start to drain through the nipple and she feels great again. What comes out is gross - a sticky white pus, no smell but gross - although I am happy to see it drain. I tried castor oil last night using warm compresses first, then soaking a cotton pad in the oil and putting the warm compress on top. I do want to be sure the castor oil is safe since the nipple drains. I don't want to clog it as I think that may be part of the problem (stick pus clogging it so now I use hydrogen peroxide tto was nightly). I read somewhere castor oil may not be safe so I want to be sure. It is her upper left nipple so she can not reach it to lick off.
Any and all suggestions are great. She is just under 11 and about 9lbs (a yorkie) - and she is an angel.
2 days ago I visited an herbalist in a holistic pet store who I trust - he has been there well over 20 years and is very respected. He is changing her diet - wants her off poultry and beef - and instead instructed me to get down 3 other proteins she will eat. Not appetizing yet but she will get over it. He wants bison, venison, salmon, rabbit, buffalo, lamb, pork or other fish. I am to get him 3 and he will come up w/recipes or a commercial option. He also wants her to fast once a week (which wont bother her at all).
In her food he gave us Gentle Digest Prebiotic and Probiotics, DMG immune strength support drops (N, N-Dimethylglycine (DMG)), Canine Immune System support (ingredients here: too many to post! https://www.standardprocess.com/Products/Veterinary-Formulas/Canine-Immune-System-Support ) and a Chinese herbs formula called Survival which is Frankincense, Zedoria, , Oldenlandia, Curcurma, Lindera, Licorice & Gynostemma which is out of the Connecticut Institute for Herbal Studies. The trick is getting them in her which is NOT going very well, but again she will have to get over it too. I have now realized she knows the word medicine and goes and hides. She is smart!
Thank you all so much!
I've been using molasses/baking soda for my 16 year old cat with oral squamous cell carcinoma which was discovered in Oct. 2013. Her veterinary treatment consisted of conventional methods using Clindamycin and Prednasone. After her last round of this in April 2014, the ulceration was still there. Out of desperation, I tried the molasses baking soda cancer cure. I've been treating her myself with this since the end of April 2014 and her level of stabilization has much improved. With conventional treatment, it was an "on" and "off" thing with rounds of medicine and in between rounds, the inflamed red ulceration in her mouth would come back big time. Although I've not cured my kitty, the massive ulceration hasn't returned since I've been using this treatment which has made a big improvement in maintaining her quality of life. In addition to the molasses/baking soda mixture, I also give her a standardized triple blend of Shiitake, Maitake, and Reishi mushrooms plus standardized Maitake d-fraction. I've also found that KMR milk replacement to be a good choice to use when the inflammation in her mouth would worsen. I add in some other supplements as well and they can vary. At age 16, I know we're on borrowed time at best, but I'm glad to have been able to keep her for as long as I have. Roughly ninety percent of these cats are dead within one year of diagnosis. Fortunately, I still have my kitty, Mandi, and next month it will be one year since we started this journey together.
My friend had two cats with high liver enzymes. They fought the medicine the vet prescribed. I gave them "full spectrum" milk thistle. They sprinkled one capsule on their food which they ate. (Big surprise) The levels went down and the vet said, "keep doing what you are doing. It is working". Liver problems respond to milk thistle. This brand was from an online vitamin catalog store and only cost 3.49 for 100 caps. I believe in full spectrum herbs.
Our 6 yr old lab has had elevated liver enzymes for a few years now, not exhibiting many symptoms yet, also the vet has already tried the "drugs" with no improvement. After we had her just yesterday to get her teeth cleaned and she still is not herself yet, this is the last time she's going under anesthesia, unless an emergency. I came back to my tried and true Earth Clinic for help. After reading all the stories about the milk thistle and the chloraphyll, I took myself down to the local health food store and bought both. We also have a 3 yr old lab mix so he's getting it too. Shoot, my liver enzymes are usually elevated so I'm going to use it too! They love it just straight out of the bowl! I got the chloraphyll in Apple flavor and both of them lapped it up! Neneh also has some fatty tumors showing up the last year and I'll be watching them too. Her sister is 18 months older and is overweight (they feed people food! ) and also has quite a few smaller fatty tumors. I'm going to tell them about this too, they never take her to the vet except to get shots. I'll come back and give an update in a month. Thanks to everyone that posted!

this is a very long post for our Buddy regarding his Squamous Cell Carcinoma inside his mouth which has formed a tumor seen outside also almost the size of a golf ball, so if you don't have time (I've gotten to the point first) or if you are going to say something negative (we are not interested, so take it to bed with you) my purpose is wanting to know if anyone is familiar with any type of homeopathic remedy topically put on a dogs tumor which is digestible being his tumor is inside his mouth (can be rubbed outside if that works too)..I've read about castor oil and turmeric applied with a cheesecloth also I've read about salve (scared to put this in his mouth) plus other remedies and I'm so confused. My result is we need to shrink or rot this tumor so it falls off...gross I know but it is possible.
Also if anyone has experience with Chemotherapy in the form of Palladia orally at home or Carboplatin infusions please give me your experience with this, I may have waited too long though considering I was concerned it would cause organ damage or suppress his immune system.
if anyone recalls our cocker Spaniel Buddy was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma cancer tumor on the left side of his face inside of his mouth unfortunately. They gave him 2 months to live back in March 2017, next visit in August they gave him 4 months to live so now I don't pay much attention to that.
Everyday I do what I do to keep Buddy healthy. It seems like a lot but his morning ritual take about 30 minutes and making his food monthly about another 30 minutes. It's become part of my daily life. The most exhausting part is not daily but the research and reading I do weekly.
Buddy immediately after the diagnosis went on an
*all natural protein and vegetable diet which I make at home monthly and freeze (Dusty loves it too)
*he takes several vitamins for his immune system,
*the Budwig Protocol which includes emulsified cottage cheese and flaxseed 2 x daily,
*2 types of eye drops considering the tumor is pushing on his eye which can lead to infection. Thankfully Chris prescribes it!!
*CBD oil just in case he is in pain daily
*I found a pill from Japan that stops the bleeding in a day or 2 every once in awhile when the tumor bleeds which is normal
*groomer comes to him so he's not exposed to other dogs and I've stopped his immunizations for various reasons,
*he has comfortable beds and areas on the sofa with blankets all over the house so he can relax wherever.
I Just recently started giving him Essiac tea 2x daily to drink and I'll see if it makes a difference. I have experimented with other natural remedies and vitamins but don't continue if I don't see a change.
Buddy is doing great in every aspect as far as eating well, sleeping, energy level, looks pretty happy other then the tumor has and is still growing..
I'm looking for a miracle which is something to stop the growth and shrink or kill the tumor ðŸ˜Ÿ Buddy and I open minded and flexible and he is very cooperative and takes anything I give him.
I'll be taking him back to the oncologist to follow up. Last time we saw her blood test we are good as far as organs doing well.
7 months ago my dog was diagnosed with stage 2 sinus cancer and a fungal infection. His symptoms were a nose bleed 1-30-2015 then another in June of last year. Also for a few years he had clear nasal drip. But I noticed in September last year that there was no airflow in his right nostril. In September they diagnosed him and gave him 3-6 months and if we used radiation we would get a year, but he would go blind and have severe nasal mucus and pain. We opted out and went holistic.
Took him to a holistic vet which put him on max formula and turmeric, mushroom and curcumin. I also added to his therapy homemade liposomal c, hemp oil, krill oil, spirulina/chlorella/hemp dry powder mix, ip6, human grade DE, homemade dog food (chicken, mixed broccoli/cauliflower, carrots, pumpkin, black beans, quinoa) and half raw ground chicken backs with organ meat.
2 months ago he had massive nose bleeds from sneezing then a miracle, the tumor popped out at 2" the size of my baby finger. Had it tested and it was indeed the cancer tumor with the stem. Unbelievable but true.
Now I'm fighting his fungal infection which after the tumor flew out (btw it was an inoperable tumor) he had airflow from his right nostril but only lasted about a week. That is when I believe the fungus invaded and since then he has about 20% airflow.
I would like to know what i can give him specifically for nasal fungal infection. My dog (Chucky) is going on 8 years old in July and is a golden retriever. Otherwise healthy and happy, eats well at 110 lbs.., and stocky build so he may be about 10 lbs. Overweight..
Now you have a background. Do you have any suggestions on how to treat a sinus fungal infection. Thank you so much..
Hello - I have been reading all entries related to bone cancer and osteosarcoma but am reaching out to find out Ted's best and most up to date protocol. My 6.5 year old Dane (94 lbs) was taken to the Vet for a limp, and after misdiagnosing for a month as a fracture turned out to be osteosarcoma. We started seeking and treating with every seemingly effective treatment I could find.
It has been 6 weeks since dx:
1) 2 Tbsp Budwig Flax Oil + 2 Tbps organic cottage cheese + ground walnut/apricot-seed/pumpkin-seed/sunflower-seed. We would do this twice daily
2) diet change - zero kibble now, we simmer meat or foul and add supplements such as seaweed calcium and moringa powder For the past 2 weeks we have added:
3) 1/2 tsp blackseed oil + 1/2 tsp honey
4) Essiac tea twice a day 4 oz each ////
Although she seems healthy, the growth of her leg has not reduced and has slightly enlarged. She limps heavily. I've been told it grows rapidly, typically, so maybe only a small increase is good. BUT, Ted, I need help and know that time is not on my side. Please, I am looking for a protocol - even hope for a cure - and have nothing but negative information from doctors and limited solid information from self research.
Some days she turns her nose at all food except the honey+blackseed. Most days she has a good appetite though.
EC: Dear Dane Mom,
We're so sorry to hear about your Great Dane. Unfortunately our brilliant contributor Ted had a stroke 3 years ago and has been unable to correspond with Earth Clinic readers since then. Hopefully one of our other wonderful contributors will have some ideas for you.
My dog was diagnosed with mast cell tumors at 13 years of age. Here is what we did for him palliatively, since he was so old that surgery was out of the question.
When it presented, one of his fatty tumors ballooned to twice its normal size. The vet gave him a biopsy that confirmed mast cells. Within a week, it had perforated and left a huge, hamburgerish hole in his side that we were told to keep covered, and that it would probably not heal.
Bandages are expensive, so I ordered organic, reusable bamboo breast pads online (10 pack) to use in place of primary bandages. We asked around and received about 10 ace bandages that we used to secure the primary bandages, then bought a rigid back brace to wrap over the top of the primary and ace bandages to make it harder for Skipper to access the wound.
At first we were changing the breast pads several times a day, and each time we would slather one of the following:
- Cold pressed, hexane free castor oil
- Vitamin E oil
To these we would sometimes add turmeric, Lugols iodine. Definitely added Yunnan Baiyou to wound at first when it was bleeding so bad, and also included a pill or two internally the first week. After he healed, we put Dr. Schultze's drawing poultice (look at Curezone for recipe) overnight, and left all bandages off during the day.
After about 6 weeks, the wound closed up completely. We frequently put ice packs over the bandage system to keep him comfortable when the sore would flare up.
Onto the supplements we had him on:
- CannaCompanion cannabis (see their website for specifications)
- Vet prescribed anti-inflammatory
- Turmeric and pepper pills found at Costco
- Green Mush pills (you have to assemble capsules yourself, unless your dog will eat Green Mush mixed into food)
- 2 Benadryll
- 1 Tagamet
- Activated charcoal & Psyllium
- Indica just before bedtime towards the end
I attached his regimen. He was put to sleep about a week and a half ago, but I know he would have died sooner and been more uncomfortable had we not followed this protocol. Hope this helps someone out there!
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.
Here is a link:
Povodine Iodine you can get 1/2 gal for 20.00 & put it straight on the outside it kills so far down. My Dozzer has a tumor in his testicle that I use it o, & it won' hurt them if they do happen to lick some off for it penetrates the skin so fast if they do it's very little. Kills even MRSA & antibiotic immune Candida, along with almost all negative & positive bacteria. Type 2 Iodine has to be monitored by a Holistic vet but works great on that type of cancer including but not limited to prostrate & mammary glands, breast, etc.
I hope this helps you & your buddy.

I have a 12 year lab. He was suffering from 8 fatty tissues that were very large.
I learned that raspberry powder can help dogs with removing fatty tissues and tumors. My dog was draggy and slow with the many fatty tissues. I came across raspberry powder and gave it to him for a month. He only has two left.
I would put 2 tablespoons over his dog food in the morning and evening. This is a real story. The two fatty tissues left have been reduced in size.
My lab has more energy and is moving around better. Also, I give my dog 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in the morning and put it in his bowl and put his food over it. He does lick it up.
Our dog had a tumor on one of his ears. The vet said that if it continued to grow, it should be removed surgically. I'd had good results using raw food, and had heard of many cancer cures using raw food, so I did a search and found that the raw pet food I had once heard about, from Canada, called B.A.R.F. (which stands for Biologically Appropriate Raw Food), was now available within driving distance from a local distributor. The dog was put on this food immediately. In three weeks, the tumor had flattened and blackened into a hideous thick crust. At 6 weeks into the raw food experiment, it was just a small flat scab. At 7 weeks, the scab fell off and revealed perfect, pink skin, with only a trace that there was ever a problem. We have kept him on a largely raw diet since then. Today, almost 2 years later, I can't tell where the tumor was. And he always smells fresher and less "doggy" when he is on raw food. He also has a lot more energy. I love how the raw diet decreased the burden of digesting cooked food, and gave him more assimilable nutrition to help his body heal.
I have the Seabuckthorn oil but am not sure how much to give my 15 lb Patterdale (Jack Russell family), any suggestions?
I live in London, England and I have a 14 year old American Spaniel, Boppo. In the past year Boppo has lost his sight and his hearing but he still has mobility and he gets around just fine. However in late January 2015 Boppo developed a tumour on his mouth. It grew rapidly and went from the size of a marble to the size of a small tomato. The vet told me that Boppo could not be treated as he was too old to be anaesthesised. Looking around on the net I found this thread from 07/14/2012 describing how Beanie had treated her dog with Seabuckthorn Berry oil (which I'd never heard of) and the treatment had worked. I obtained some Seabuckthorn Berry oil and I've been giving Boppo a whole dropper full every day for 5 weeks. It's quite incredible and difficult to believe but there is now no trace of the tumour. I have now reduced the dose to a half a dropper every day and I'm eternally grateful for having come across Earthclinic and to Beanie in particular.
