My 4 year old Carolina dog had a cyst on her head for close to a year. It just got bigger and harder over time. The vet wasn't sure what the problem was and advised leaving it alone. I found this site and began giving her turmeric and coconut oil 3 weeks ago. She is 50 pounds and I gave about 1/2 tsp of each in her food once or twice a day. The cyst began leaking brown/black sebum and is now down to almost nothing. I attached before and after pics. This is my first post here. I was so impressed I called my vet about it, too!

EC: Hi Epsy, can you please upload the other photo. Unfortunately the program we use only allows one photo per post. Thank you!

Hi, an easier way is to use 35% percent Food Grade hydrogen peroxide. A little on a cotton ball nightly and the cyst turns black and breaks down. Be careful though, it burns a bit.

Thank you for the information. I am going to try this with my dog.

Hi, I just wanted to say that I love this post. I am so impressed with the results of the coconut oil and turmeric. There seemed to be no need to add pepper which I think is a good thing as I doubt the dog's system would tolerate it and I sure wouldn't want to give it to my dog! My friend's dog has a cyst and I am gonna try this remedy on her if he agrees and since she is a Boxer ( full breed ) they are prone to cysts and unfortunately cancer .So I am eager to begin and excited and hopeful about the end results. Thanks so much for sharing your story and sure nice to hear that your dog is recovering .

I also loved this post. To share my story, one of my past Golden Retrievers had a pea-sized cyst on her hip. Then her immune system got compromised with IMHA (Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia) and all the meds she was on. The cyst grew to the size of a quarter and was red and seeping (kinda gross! ). I started adding the turmeric & coconut oil (she LOVED coconut oil! ) to her food, and no joke, the entire cyst was GONE in 2 weeks! I was astounded!
