Tumors in pets; Several years ago my cat developed a mass which my vet said was a tumor. I was taking shark cartilage for osteoarthritis (which did relieve the pain) and added some to my cats food. After a few weeks I took her back to the vet for an exam. He found that the tumor had liquified. If you read the book "SHARKS DON'T GET CANCER" it claims the shark cartilage cuts off the blood supply to the growth.
Can I use the Ted's above alkalinity formula for an oral tumor my cat has? It really fills much of the space in the back of his throat. I have been doing hydrogen peroxide therapy alternately with Mesosilver 2x day on each one. I understand adding silver to h2o2 makes it much more powerful but am searching for how much of one to the other to mix together. Have been using slightly less than. 5 solution of hydrogen peroxide orally and I also spray in his mouth on the tumor.
I have an adopted black lab, age 15, "Lady", with a large tumor that appeared on her right leg joint (started as elbow callus appearance). The Vet stated that I would probably have to "put her down" soon because she will stop walking due to leg discomfort. He did not recommend surgery or chemo; she does have an obstructed nasal passage since someone probably kicked and crushed her face at some point in her life. She often gets antibiotics for her nasal infections - we have to carefully feed her to keep food out of her nose.
I am writing to say thank you for your directions and the Castor Oil... it's been nothing less than amazing!
I began treatment a week ago as you directed and the large, mushy mass is now 1/3 the original size, no edema. She is walking around and even rolling in the grass. I will continue all phases of her treatment and wish to say thanks on our behalf, she feels very good, frisky and most importantly, she is able to truly enjoy her days more.
I have a few questions and I hope you can help. My Lab, Trev, is 13 1/2 years old. He has a non-cancerous tumor on his left leg. He has had surgery for removal but it keeps coming back. It is now bleeding constantly unless I keep it wrapped. Because of his age, the doctor does not want to perform surgery because it is so large it would mean removal of his leg. His back hips are bad and he has trouble getting up. Every time I change his wrap, it bleeds. I read your column about castor oil and bloodroot. I tried castor oil months ago and it did not help. I have never tried anything else. I don't know where to get bloodroot. If I can help him, I want to do what I can for him. According to the vet, he will have to be on antibiotics for the rest of his life and I have to change his bandage (it's a large wrap with an ace bandage around it), every two days. I am trying to avoid infection. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Marilyn

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.
Can I suggest something about turmeric for tumors. I have been using turmeric for years to great effect, I have extracted raw turmeric root and used alcohol to seep over several weeks to extract the essential oil or resin. But I discovered certain varieties of turmeric work better than others, the yellow turmeric seems to be more potent than the orange turmeric. Feel free to disagree, I can only report what I see and I feel its necessary to point this out, to those whom maybe interested. When I used orange organic grown turmeric over the last two years, effect was void. Previous years I used white/ yellow and orange in combination it was impressive particularly with tumours. I source my turmeric from Earthcare Maleny QLD. I am not connected to this business and I am a customer only.
I have been giving my dog who has mast cell tumor.. ( already removed surgically & returned with a vengeance just weeks later) TURMERIC .. along with a cancer diet and many other herbs and supplements .. I have been using turmeric powder and also curcumin capsules ( concentrated turmeric extract) twice a day .. she was given 8 weeks to live and the vet said he could only make her comfortable.. that was 4 weeks ago and she was in poor state.. barely moving barely eating... she is now looking normal.
I know I am not out of the woods yet BUT..she has put on weight is eating like a horse and back to her usual self. I also have been using castor oil topically on the tumor and it has just started to open up and weep and bleed .. so using colloidal silver to prevent infection and continue with the oil and see what happens.. but she is happy and shows no sign of pain...so Turmeric has helped her tremendously.

I give my ( cat sized) dog turmeric.. she wouldn't eat it if I mixed with food ... so I bought empty capsules and fill the small part with turmeric powder plug the end with steak I minced in the blender and rolled a tiny ( small as possible) ball of meat with the half capsule inside . If I make the meat balls small she gulps them down capsule and all -IF I make them bigger she has to chew and she discovers the capsule and spits it out .. so keep them small .. even if you have to do it twice to get the dose into her. I do this for all the supplements she is on for cancer .. so far tumor shrinking and she is doing well .. vet said she was dying but she's looking good in the last 2 weeks.
I was so hopeful reading all the great successes here for our sweet "children". Thanks for the info.
I've been giving my beloved 15yo, 25 lb Puggle Turmeric for months and nothing. I first was giving 1/4-1/2 tsp Organic turmeric from the store for 6 weeks until I found out that was the wrong turmeric! I was to use the 95% kind. So have been giving him 2 (500mg) caps a day sprinkled in his food (along with Milk Thistle, and Superfood probiotic powder) and no change at all.
It hasn't grown but it is the size of an orange on his side for over 6 months. :( Everything is as good as before this benign fatty tumor (had vet test him). His appetite, water consumption, etc are all good, and he walks/jogs a couple miles/day with me.
I just can't understand why nothing is changing or shrinking. It's so sad.
Treating a beagle for tumors. Used Turmeric salve for a week. Then started feeding her turmeric in her food. She weighs 30 pounds and was giving her 700 mg once per day. Also 1/2 t apple cider vinegar. did this for about a week. Tumor split open and started to leak, and got bigger.
Now for the last two days the tumor seems to hurt her when we try to clean it up. Can not squeeze it because it hurts her to bad. Is a very large lump now. She has diarrhea is not eating, drinks a little water. Have tried rice water. All kinds of goodies, treats, chicken, turkey, beef. She normally eats everything in sight. She seems sick. I am not sure how to take care of the tumor now that it is leaking. HELP!
Hi, so happy to read these success stories. I have one too. Doubted myself before now. My Rottie/shep/border collie cross had a horrible growth right at the tear duct on his eye and it was growing. I read about the castor oil and aloe combo to shrink tumours. But around the eye, I was terrified to do anything. Got brave and dabbed just a tiny bit plus started giving him tsp or so of turmeric with olive oil to eat. They like the taste of turmeric. The tumour shrunk to almost nothing. I have also noticed that my dog's tumour grows when he eats any food with wheat in it-so I read the labels on dog treats, only choosing ones made with rice. Makes a big difference.
I have an older white lab that developed a tumor beside his genital area and he kept it inflamed by licking it. I started him on 1 teaspoon per feeding, twice a day, of turmeric on his food. He did not reject it at all, and the tumor has now shrunk and he no longer pays attention to it. It's not totally gone but it's definitely shrunk and no longer inflamed. Turmeric works. I did not add molasses.
Hi my shepherd mix had a fatty tumor on her front leg. It grew quite large and then the skin started to split. I took her to the Vet and he said it would take 3 surgeries and about $2600 to remove but suggested I go home and research some remedies to get it to shrink. I found this site and began applying a turmeric paste to it and then gave her 2 times a day a teaspoon of turmeric and a teaspoon of black strap molasses in some wet food. In about 3 weeks the tumor started to oooze. It was in the evening so I just wrapped it up and let it drain. I brought her to the Vet. After examining it he said it had shrunk considerable and now was only one surgery and less than half the cost. He had me take her home and let it continue to drain. The next day she had her surgery and she is as good as new! It was amazing, I didn't think it was working but it did and it took awhile and yes it was gross when it was draining but certainly worth it.
I would like to thank all the writers here for your advice on reducing fatty tissue tumours in dogs. I started treatment on my 13 yrs old dog two and half weeks ago. I put turmeric in his food every time he ate and rubbed the tumour with castor/tumeric combination. The "size of a golfball" type tumour ruptured after enlarging and shrinking last week. I have been treating with anti-biotic and the castor oil/turmeric pack and wrapping it (i sit with dog for an hour each time because as soon as my back is turned, the bandage is off and he is licking it). The size of the tumour has decreased by 70% at least and seems to be regenerating skin and closing slowly. It looked really nasty but I cleaned it 3-4 times a day and applied anti-biotics. I am happy with what has happened so far and am very thankful for the advice as a I am a pensioner and vets, etc are just too expensive. My biggest problem is keeping him from taking the bandage off. He looks happier and is moving around better. My fingers are crossed that it will be nearly all gone and healed within a few more weeks.

I have a 10 year old, 20lb terrier. She has had a benign fatty tumor just above her chest bone and below the collar line for several years and about 1/2 a golf ball in size. I have been giving her about 1/2 tsp of turmeric in her food every day for about 3 weeks. It has shrunk considerably I may up the dosage for the next few weeks to see if we can completely dissolve the tumor.
