Dog and Cat Skin Tumor Poultice

Crafting an All-Natural Skin Tumor Paste for Pets

If your dog or cat is facing the challenge of a skin tumor, I’ve formulated an all-natural and effective skin tumor paste that you might find beneficial. This concoction is a blend of potent ingredients, each with its unique properties to support your pet’s health. As a pet owner deeply invested in natural remedies, I understand the importance of exploring safe and holistic options for our furry friends’ well-being.

Chaga: The Medicinal Mushroom for Immune Support

The first key ingredient in this paste is the medicinal mushroom Chaga, renowned for its immune support, particularly in cancer care. It’s widely studied and respected for its potential in boosting the body’s natural defenses. To prepare the base of the paste, I start with one tablespoon of Chaga, then add in 60 ml or a quarter teaspoon of boiling water. This mixture is left to steep for about 20 minutes, allowing the Chaga to release its beneficial compounds.

Castor Oil: A Healing Elixir for Lumps and Bumps

Next, I incorporate castor oil, a well-known topical anti-inflammatory agent. It’s been traditionally used to treat various lumps and bumps on pets, providing relief and aiding in healing. Castor oil’s natural properties make it a valuable component of this skin tumor paste. One teaspoon of castor oil is added to the steeped Chaga blend, enriching the mixture with its soothing qualities.

Neem Oil: From the Neem Tree to Skin Support

The final ingredient is neem oil, derived from the neem tree in Asia. While primarily used for its insecticidal properties in veterinary medicine, neem oil also boasts excellent skin support attributes and specific anti-cancer properties. I add one teaspoon of neem oil to the mixture, enhancing the paste with its multifaceted benefits for skin health.

Applying the Paste: A Step-by-Step Guide

After thoroughly mixing the Chaga, castor oil, and neem oil, the resulting paste is ready for application. Apply the paste directly over the tumor, ensuring it’s generously covered. I then use a sticky bandage or vet wrap to secure the paste over the tumor area. This bandage is left in place overnight, for at least 12 hours, before it’s changed. There’s enough paste to last for two weeks, and it’s best kept in the fridge when not in use. For optimal results, apply the paste and wrap your dog’s leg twice a day for 14 days, then assess the effectiveness of the treatment.

  1. my dog has MCT subcutaneous what suggestions do you have? It doesn’t seem as though this paste is going to work but maybe I’m wrong do I put it on even though there’s no exposure and how do you deal with the ones on his spleen?

      .FDA approves intratumoral injection for dogs

      The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced last month the approval of Stelfonta (tigilanol tiglate injection), the first intratumoral injection to treat nonmetastatic cutaneous mast cell tumors (MCTs) in dogs.

      Stelfonta, which is injected directly into the MCT, activates a protein that spreads throughout the treated tumor and disintegrates tumor cells, according to the FDA website.

      “This approval provides an additional treatment option to help treat local mast cell tumors on or under the skin in dogs,” says Steven M. Solomon, DVM, MPH, director of the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine.

      MCTs are the most common malignant skin tumors in dogs. Full surgical removal of mast tumor cells can be challenging when tumors are located in certain areas, like the leg. If not fully removed, the remaining malignant cells can start to grow and spread rapidly. “Stelfonta offers a novel way to treat nonmetastatic MCTs as the only approved intratumoral injection,” according to the FDA.

      Stelfonta’s safety was demonstrated in a laboratory study of 118 dogs with a measurable cutaneous or a subcutaneous MCT on the lower leg. A total of 80 dogs were treated with Stelfonta, and 38 were in an untreated control group. After monitoring the dogs for a month, the complete remission rate of the treated group was 75%.

      Eighteen dogs in the treatment group, whose tumors didn’t completely disappear, were retreated with Stelfonta a second time about a month after their first treatment. Approximately a month after receiving their second treatment, 44% of these dogs’ tumors had disappeared completely. Dogs in the untreated control group were treated with Stelfonta for the first time a month after the study began; 62% of those dogs’ tumors disappeared.

      The most common adverse reactions associated with Stelfonta administration include wound formation at the tumor site and injection site reactions, such as pain, swelling, reddening of the skin, bruising, thickening, scarring, and death of some cells in the tissues.

      Stelfonta is available by prescription only, as it should be administered only by veterinary personnel with the expertise to ensure safe use of the drug, assess the patient for contraindications, and monitor for adverse reactions.

      Additionally, this drug should always be administered with a corticosteroid, an H1-receptor blocking agent and an H2-receptor blocking agent, thus decreasing the risk of severe systemic adverse reactions, including death, from mast cell degranulation.

      The FDA also advises veterinarians to provide clients with handouts detailing important information about Stelfonta, including how to care for their pets after drug administration.

      P.S. A local injection to treat a local skin cancer is a great option – so much better than having to give something like chemotherapy. If your dog ever gets a mast cell tumor, ask your veterinarian about this injection.

      P.P.S. Obviously better to prevent these in the fist place. Certain ingredients such as antioxidants, EFA’s, probiotics, colostrum may help this.
