I have a 5 1/2 year old black lab that has a tumor on his front paw, we have had him on antibiotics for 2 weeks and a anti inflammatory pill, we are seeing no improvement, vet is recommending amputation of the toe, of course at a steep cost, in the meantime I have been hearing about tumeric was wondering if anyone could give advice if it is okay to give him tumeric, how much?? we are trying to buy some time until we get the funds for his surgery, as a side note his is a diabetic dog.
I had a question about a recipie for using tumeric to heal a mass on my dog.. I've read a lot of great things about tumeric healing even malignant tumors on animals, and just wanted to see if anyone ran across a recipe (eg, with honey? tea tree? add to just water?). Thanks!

Tumors if not malignant can be dealt with using red root capsules and turmeric and cayene. Red root dissolves non-malignant cysts and tumors.

My 11 year old collie developed a tumor on his lower jaw, two years ago. It is benign but after being removed twice , has grown back again. I have started to dose him with tumeric, 1/2 tsp 2xday. I am anxious to see if this will work because most times testamonials like those here on this site are sometimes bogus and I pray that this time they are not. I will update after two weeks.

recently my pet rat sookie started getting what looks to be a mammary tumor growing on her lower abdomen. i have had rats (females) get this before and they are fast growing and sometimes cancerous - and it cost a lot of money to have them removed (if they can) and then they usually grow back.
well, i immediately started giving her high doses of tumeric in ensure or oatmeal. the lump has not gotten any bigger and it has been several weeks. it actually appears to be getting smaller. this is a godsend. she is an older rat (1 1/2 years) and has always been frail and i don't think she would be a good candidate for surgery. i would suggest that anyone with pet rats that get lumps give them tumeric. actually, i plan to give all my rats tumeric from now on because it also helps with abcesses, and it said to keep lumps from forming. i have told all my rat friends about your site!
YAY! thanks for this site!

What Are the Best Sources for Turmeric?
What are the best sources for tumeric, you may already know you can find it in the spice aisle of your local grocery store. But if you are using it for healing properties I would using your local grocery store, due to the quality of their herbs and spices. Even though there may be some good spices available at your local market, it's really difficult to verify their purity and potency. Also, the turmeric powder you buy at the grocery store is a spice. It doesn't necessarily come from high-quality organic herbs -- and is not produced using certified organic processes, causing you or your pet to risk missing its healthful benefits.
Here's a better option.. Do a Google search for organic turmeric in powder or supplement form. Here are some things you should watch for when choosing a product.
Avoid Unnecessary Fillers, Additives
When I went to the healthfood store, I found a big array of choices. Besides, curcumin and curcuminoid ingredients, I found products with questionable ingredients like fillers, additives, and excipients. An excipient is a substance added to the supplement as a processing, binding or stability aid. One ingredient, magnesium stearate (also know as stearic acid), is a potentially toxic metal additive from pill production. Another ingredient I found in many turmeric supplements, Dibasic Calcium Phosphate (DCP), may even inhibit the absorption of essential minerals within the system. There are others as well, but the crux is... you don't want or need these ingredients in your pets turmeric supplement. Some pose potential health risks -- and all are unnecessary. Plus a higher quality product may very well speed up the cure.
I calculate all of my animal dosages for herbs and homeopathy with a Pet Remedy Charts. They make it brain dead simple. I got mine from a holistic vet, but you can google them on the web and find them too.

Recently started Turmeric treatment for 12 y.o. Shar Pei Sanna. She has had a yeast problem with her skin since we got her at 8 weeks old and started developing lipomas in the past four years. Have always bathed weekly, and tried nearly every remedy we read about including lime sulfur dips, anti-fungal shampoos and vinegar to little or no avail. We read about turmeric for treating dog yeast infections and tried it. We are absolutely floored by the results. Within two days of starting treatment all the odor associated with yeast on her skin disappeared. She completely stopped chewing on her feet. It has been a month now and the smaller lipomas are gone and the larger ones are shrinking. The skin on her underbelly is getting soft and smooth and changing from purple to healthy looking pink. Our vet is amazed. Cannot say enough good things about using turmeric. Anyone thinking about using turmeric for their dog needs to stop thinking and start using. Your dog will appreciate it for sure!
