My Lhasa Apso (23 lbs.) has a ping pong sized fatty tumor under his tail which looks like a misplaced testicle! The vet says it would be better not to remove it because he's about 12 years old and it does not interfer with his elimination. For two weeks I have been giving him 1 teaspoon of tumeric mixed with canned dog food, which he likes very much. Unfortunately, his tumor has not shrunk and HE SMELLS LIKE CAT URINE! Am I giving him too much? Shall I keep trying and wait longer?
First off my Golden Retriever is a "He" and about a 100 lbs not fat just big most Goldens are big dogs i give him 1 teaspoon 2 times a day going by what most fokes say on this site, but his cyst/tumor has not gotten any smaller even with 2 teaspoons a day so its not working like every one is saying, maybe they are Turmeric sales reps?
EC: Not if they are writing about turmeric powder, which only costs a few bucks at an Indian grocer. The posts promoting turmeric capsules are the ones to watch out for! We had a bunch of fake turmeric posts on the boils page about a year ago. It was the company that sells turmeric capsules at the big box store (W-----t) that was sending in bogus testimonials, week after week.
