In part 1 of natural remedies to shrink lipomas, I discuss some alternative treatments for dog lipomas such as a few supplements that will stop lipoma growth, possible causes of lipomas, and why you may not want to have surgery to remove benign tumors. In part two of this blog, I’ll discuss some diet do’s and don’ts, dog lipoma foods to stop its growth, and some herbs and spices that are thought to shrink or prevent lipomas.

Eliminate these 3 foods to stop your dog’s lipoma growth in its tracks!

1) Dairy: Ice cream, Puppucino’s, cheese, and any other dairy made from animal milk should be avoided.

TIP: a) Dog-friendly ice cream can be made by slicing a banana and freezing it. Put the frozen banana slices into a blender or food processor, blend, and serve. b) My alternative to using cheese to hide pills is to cut a hole into a chunk of chicken or banana to hide the pill.

2) Eggs: Once I learned eggs feed viruses and promote cysts, tumors, and calcifications, I made sure eggs were not in any food or treats. *Taking them out of my diet also stopped my mysterious knee pain that grew up into my thighs.

3) Grains: Going grain-free can be beneficial to all dogs but especially for dogs dealing with benign tumors, dog eczema, and Spondylosis. Why? Many grains, such as wheat, are no longer the same grains from decades ago. Today’s wheat is often referred to as “frakenwheat” and is a contributing factor to gut health issues such as IBS or colitis and may be GMO.

For dog food without grains, you can choose recipes from this grain-free dog food brand if you prefer cooked dog food, or if you are a raw feeder you can choose from this grain-free raw dog food.

4 dog lipoma foods to stop lipoma growth

The top dog lipoma foods that I used to shrink my dog’s lipoma daily were celery juice and wild blueberries.

1) Celery: assists the kidneys, flushes the liver, and helps with acid reflux, heartburn, high blood pressure, and blurry eyes. Also, celery reduces lipomas and cysts.

Celery juice for dogs: My dog drank 1-2 ounces of celery juice with me daily, sometimes he ate a celery stalk as a snack and it was generally a part of his meal. *Please Note: If your dog has never had celery juice before, please start slow or with a very small amount. Straight juice vs. celery with pulp, gets into the bloodstream much faster.

Celery juice Tip: if you don’t have a juicer to make celery juice, you can use a blender. My old Cuisinart glass blender struggled with celery so I bought this USA made high-end blender with an 8-year warranty. The blades are squared off so I no longer worry about cutting my hand while cleaning the inside of it. It handles blending celery much easier than my old blender and I get more juice out of the celery! It’s not just any blender, I use it for many other things like smoothies, hummus, and soup and they all turn out fantastic.

After the celery is blended, I run it through a nut milk bag or something similar to get the juice.

2) Wild blueberries: I covered this amazing fruit in my dog cancer blog and it is worth repeating since it will also help with lipoma! Wild blueberries, not regular blueberries, are in my top dog lipoma foods because they are little powerhouses that have the capability to repair cells and are great for eye health. If you can’t find wild blueberries, you can use this blueberry powder.

Fruit Tips: If your dog is not good at keeping food in their bowl, stick them in the blender to make a smoothie for your dog to lick  up. Additionally, keep fruit separate from protein for the best results. Fruit 1 hour before protein or 2 hours after protein.

3) Raspberries are among my top dog lipoma foods because they prevent benign growth and malignant tumors. If you would like a blend of wild blueberries and raspberries you can buy a dog berry powder blend called red rover.

4) Sweet potatoes are anti-cancerous, great for digestive disorders, and help relax nerves and muscles.

5 Herbs and spices that help fight canine benign tumors

1) Chaga can be purchased as a powder that can either be mixed in food or brewed as tea. Tip: I did not like it straight in the water, I steeped it in this. Chaga benefits: helps bring the liver out of stagnation (meaning it’s a gentle liver detox, which most dogs & people need), helps skin issues like eczema, and nerve pain, and strengthens red blood cells and bone marrow. It is considered anti-cancerous and fights tumors. Cats can have Chaga too.

If you prefer a mushroom blend you can buy this dog mushroom powder that blends 7 mushrooms such as Chaga, Turkey Tail, and cordyceps. It is the real thing vs. other powders that only contain mycelium! 100% natural, recycled containers, 3rd party test, non-GMO. 

2) Burdock root has anti-tumor properties, is a top cancer remedy as it stops cells from metastasizing, and is an ingredient in Essiac tea. It also helps with skin issues like eczema, is an effective painkiller, is anti-inflammatory, and helps with urinary and bladder infections. This herbal remedy is similar to essaic with one exception. The traditional recipe includes Turkish rhubarb whereas this herbal remedy has Organic Chinese Rhubarb.

3) Turmeric is often on the list of top dog lipoma foods. Dosage, additional benefits, and any contraindications are explained in my dog cancer blog. *Please note, dogs who “run hot” may be better off NOT taking turmeric. Instead, Violet is an alternative to combat inflammation and lipomas since it will have a cooling effect on “hot” dogs.

4) Parsley neutralizes acidity in the body, fights multiple myeloma, is great for your eyes, helps prevent tooth decay, removes herbicides, removes pesticides, and will counteract grains. This organic dog supplement contains BOTH herbs #3 and #4!

5) Cumin is great for digestive disorders, has anti-cancer properties, and anti-tumor properties, and helps boost kidney & liver function.

Canine Lipoma diet food tips for healthy dog food

Doing a canine liver detox should help speed up the process of shrinking your dog’s lipoma.

1) Meat: in my 2023 Best Fresh Dog Foods guide you will find several dog foods made with grass-fed meat. Grass-fed meat will be the best because it will help your pet avoid ingesting other toxins. As the saying goes you are what you eat, what they eat! If your dog also suffers from allergies, I have listed the best proteins proven to work for dog allergies along with tips from 3 holistic vets.

If your dog’s diet is heavily based on animal protein, lowering the amount of animal protein a bit can be beneficial because it can stress the liver and kidneys. A few ways to accomplish this is to do a dog liver detox, or swap your meat-based treats like bully sticks or chicken jerky vegan dental treats! If you prefer to make your own dog treats, you can try this 5-ingredient dog cookie or 3-ingredient cat treat recipe.

2) Grains: are in the top dog lipoma foods don’t use list. Grains are best avoided but if grains are part of your pet’s diet, the better choices are GMO-free quinoa and brown rice.  For example in my top dog foods list, this lamb dog food contains quinoa and the turkey dog food contains brown rice.

3) Vegetables: There has been some information claiming cruciferous veggies like broccoli are goitrogenic but one of my trusted sources says no. Some pet-cancer diets use this vegetable as one of the main veggies in their pre-made meals. Another favorite is a sweet potato. A few other vegetable choices are leafy greens like kale or spinach which are best left raw vs. cooked according to Medical Medium.  Finally, avoid GMO foods such as corn and canola oil.

4) Going organic will reduce the number of chemicals you are introducing into your pet’s body. If you can’t afford to go 100% organic, then use as much organic food as possible. A good guideline is “The Clean 15” and “Dirty Dozen Foods.”

I hope this information helps you achieve the success I had in shrinking my dog’s lipoma. I would love to hear what strategies you implemented to reduce your pet’s non-cancerous lump!

    Thanks for all this great info!! Two questions, and I apologize if I’ve overlooked the answers as I’m sure they are here somewhere! I’m terrified of DCM and the supposed link between it and a grain free diet. Your thoughts? Also, what do you recommend for heartworm prevention?

  2. Evelyn

    Hi, Thank you for all of this wonderful advice. How is your dog doing? I weas wondering-is this the brand you like and still use/like of Burdock Root? Thank you!

      1. Evelyn

        Thank you. I had never heard of that brand before so just wanted to double check. I see you’ve done extensive research though so I want to use what worked for you. How much Burdock did you give your dog? I heard it works well with milk thistle too. Do you buy organic wild blueberries? You would think all wild blueberries are organic but apparently that is not the case. My Dog Yoshi has hypothyroidism too and was diagnosed in August with Dilated Cardio Myopathy.

        1. The brands I suggest have the dosage on the label for the pet-specific versions. If it is a human supplement that is pet safe then I believe I gave a forumula you can use to proerly dose your dog. No, I did not use organic Wild blueberries because they were hard to find. My understanding is wild foods have far less chemicals than even organic fruits or veggies so I was okay with regular Wild Blueberries (not the conventional blueberries found in the claim shell). I learned some organic spray can contain nicotine. That was a shocker.

    I am trying to shrink our mini schnauzer’s lipoma ( with a herb tincture..Violet and Chickweed ) but only started about 3 weeks ago. Our little Millie does run hot. She is also prone to bladder stones ( latest surgery 1 year ago last March. Millie will be turning 11 in November) Is on prescription diet for stones. Vet said Millie must be on this diet. Do not want her stones to come back so have to be careful what I give her for the lipoma. That has been our confusion battling two different things. I know that bladder stones cannot be treated easily. Can you help. Isobel

    Epusil. Trying to fine a vet to do a calcium chloride injection

  5. Mariclaire

    My dog has several lipomas. One is a major concern and the doctor can not remove it because of its size and location. It’s on her leg and is causing some discomfort. I am not able to entirely feed her raw foods and would have to find a commercial dog food that may be more helpful with reducing lipoma growth. Do you have any suggestions on how to find a dog food that would be ok for her?

  6. Diane

    My lab mix dog has over 10 lipomas. The vet wasn’t concerned but the biggest one, the size of a golf ball and getting bigger was on the rib cage. I had read that over vaccinating causes this. We recently stopped giving him the Trifexis and noticed the lipomas are shrinking. Even the largest one is shrinking. All these chemicals aren’t good for any living creature and I’m looking to help him further to shrink them more. Thanks for writing this blog!

    1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

      You are correct, chemicals are not good for any of us which is why I write so many articles on ways to go toxin-free. From pet products to items we own that could be hurting our health. 🙂

  7. Kay

    Hi, thank you so much for the article.
    Additional of your very helpful research. Can You recommend any type of food to buy? “commercial” I mean, I don’t know what to give him anymore. He’s actually eating Purina Pro plan.

    Thank you so much in advance.

  8. Isabella

    Hi I think my dog has a lipoma because through out my research it’s similar to what she has.She is 15 years old and I don’t like seeing her in pain or uncomfortable.Her tumor gets bigger and bigger and making it hard for her to walk.Is there any tips to help me get rid of it.

    1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

      All the tips I have are here in this 2 part blog. Also you may find some of the comments helpful such as the several comments from Lisa about her dog Clyde.

  9. Lisa

    Thank you! Clyde is still bouncing around dancing and spinning… I continue to give him the celery juice… The lipoma’s are still there… arm pit lipoma getting bigger… and the other one too…BUT… he can still get around very well… The lipoma’s seem to “stay loose” and non constrictive with giving him the celery juice… without it, the lipoma’s get tight and dense creating bigger problems… He is 11 years old now. He is a really happy doggie and walks long walks still. I am grateful for him in my life!♥️?? Just an update ?

    1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

      Hi Lisa. Thank you for the update on Clyde. I’m glad he is still bouncing around. Did you ever start the two green powders (algae & green juice)? Topical Remedy? I had a breast cyst and I’m so happy I used it the topical remedy, No more lumpiness. You didn’t mention if you ever tried the Wild blueberries but I have a yummy recipe for a smoothie that you and Cylde can Share in my new Dog Liver Detox blog.

  10. cindy

    i am needing some clarification on what is meant by “running hot”..I have seen that term mentioned before on holistic sites but never could determine how you are supposed to tell if your dog is hot or cold..its not like you can interview them on their symptoms..My dog has a few large lipomas and is 10+ years so not considering surgery. She seems to try and scratch the ones on her underside like they itch..not sure if that is something to be concerned with or not.. Currently giving her chickweed and tumeric and digestive enzymes and apply chickweed salve to her ..Any ideas?

  11. Anna

    Hi! Thank you for sharing all of this information. It is incredibly helpful! Would you please point me in the direction of your research on eggs and how they are not good for lipomas/tumors? I couldn’t find the reference.

    Thank you!

    1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

      If eliminating eggs sounds a bit “unconventional” to you, I will briefly share my personal experience. I took them out of my diet and it eliminated the ongoing pain I had for 1 1/2 years! NO doctor could figure out the cause of my pain, that was traveling up my leg, after 10+ dr. visits. I saw my primiary as well as specialists like an orthopedic surgeon and an infectious disease dr. (I was bite by a dog, not my dog). After eliminating eggs and being pain free, by accident I bought cookies that had them in there and my knee & leg pain came back.

    2. Joy Young

      When I give my dog Sam-e supplement the rumors go down and most disappear. If I don’t — they start popping up. One a day.

      1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

        Many hours of researching and attending seminars went into writing this article and I have never heard of that before. ? If it works for you that is great. Does it contain other ingredients such as burdock or milk thistle?

      2. Evelyn

        Hi Jay, Would you please let me know which brand and dose of SAM e you used? Thank you in advance. If it worked so well for your dog, I’d like to try it.

  12. Annie

    One more question, in the comments section, you mention supplement #5, and that a drop will go a long way. Can you clarify which one that is? So sorry, and thank you!

  13. Annie

    Hi there,

    Do you know how to administer “violet”? My dog may run a little hot, not sure.

    I do have some violet tincture (organic and wildcrafted), and was just curious how to use it.

    Thank you,

    1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

      I am currently taking a canine herbalism class and the instructor mentioned this as an alternative to turmeric. Unfortunately, she did not go into specifics about dosing. Violet also know as blue violet, sweet violet or Viola odorata is: anti-inflammatory, a diuretic (so start slowly). It works on the nervous system, skin (lipomas and wounds), and lymphatic system. Given that it can relieve constipation and given the size of your dog, it may be a good idea to start with 1 drop.

      1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

        Yes I was specifically referring to the supplements/vitamins section, in part 1 of this blog. The b-12, it is a very specific version. of b-12.

  14. Carolyn Emole

    My 12 year old beagle has many fatty pink lumps on her. Many have come in the past year. She has a big one above her ear and it’s black and one of the other newer pink ones above her shoulder is bleeding too.

    She’s been on a raw, dehydrated raw, or home cooked food her whole life. I’ve treated her homeopathically as much as possible and she doesn’t have shots or not many.

    I currently am making turkey, liver, spinach, zucchini, sardines, hemp hearts, celery or peppers, coconut oil. I was cooking just the turkey with 3 green veggies and now I’m doing the above recipe raw. She also gets a probiotic, ester c, dlpa, milk thistle, bone support and msn. Plus I give her CBD oil now.

    She’s moving better being on the CBD oil..but these lumps!!! I read somewhere to use warm water and castor oil 10 x – 3x a day. I’ve been doing that for 2 months on the one on top of her head and it’s been going down a little..but still it’ll start bleeding …poor girl has been wearing a cone at night for 2 months.

    Then I came across 6 herbs to get rid of tumors..but it’s a lot. So what do you think??? Am I supposed to buy and use all 3 tinctures. How do I get the bleeding to stop. Any additional thoughts you could give me would be helpful.

    I won’t put her under, surgery doesn’t work anyways. Most of them are just sitting there, but I have 2 bleeding ones and one her arm she licks. She always has under the skin ones..and those became more in the last 2 months. They older ones were aspirated and no cancer (thank god)!

    Thank you,

    1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

      I have never done the castor oil so I can not comment. 6 herbs, I’m not sure what you are referring to. In my blog the 3 herbs I list, the most important is #1 and a good place to start and 3 is good topically. The supplements: 1-3 are the most important if you are looking to limit the amount of stuff you are giving your dog or the cost is an issue. #4 you are already doing and 5 is great and a little (a drop or two) goes a long way.

      Have you implemented any suggestions in part 2 (foods to take Out, add in and herbs and spices)? To help your dogs liver purge stuff it is a good idea to cut down on fats, animal or plant-based. You mentioned coconut oil, yes it is considered one of the “good” ones but cutting it out for a while may prove helpful 🙂

  15. Nancy gatcomb

    I just found ur website and so happy! We have a 12 year old Treeing Walker Coonhound, she looks more beagle but has so many fatty tumors. The vet removed 1 on her chest, because when the dog stands it’s gravity that fills up where they did surgery n created many many more. Our Molly had breast cancer but they cut the tumor out as it was cancerous but they said they caught it all only to find another nipple with a lump. I’m going to try all this to help her. She was a rescue and was abused for the first 5 years of her life. She is the best dog n couldn’t be blessed more!! I pray this works. Thank u so much!

    1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

      I’m so glad you found this blog helpful. Some of the comments between myself and other people may also be helpful and give you guidance. This may be a slow process, each dog will vary, but if you are consistent and patient, you should see improvements.

        May I ask you, how long tok the shrink of the lipoma of your dog?

        1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

          Unfortunately, I did not track the time frame as I was not intending to write this blog at the time. Once I knew what I was doing was working, that is when I decided to share what I did. If you signed up for updates to this blog, you will see yesterday Lisa posted the fantastic progress she has had with her dog in the last few weeks. 🙂

    Well… my dog has had a slow growing lipoma for about 2 years. He is 10 years old and I do not want surgery for fear I may lose him. Will the celery, kale, and spinach concoction work to shrink the lipoma if it’s really big and starting to cause walking troubles? Also, I notice the areas in which the lipomas affect are cold to the touch, and the coldness spreads as the lipoma grows. I have tried vegetarian diet, non gmo foods, and fresh cooked chicken daily. Now the lipoma is big and tight. He is not happy. And, he lays down most of the day. I try to make sure he has frequent elimination, and I now massage his legs twice a day for a half an hour. He truly loves that and I can tell it is great relief for him. But… I’m worried. He has started to yelp a bit when getting up to walk from the pain. He has another growth under his armpit (front leg) and it looks so detrimental–thin skin and a round bubble. Of course I have been frequently to the vet. $2000, $4,000! Absurd prices are quoted to remove it being that”surgery” with a “too bad” look on their faces is their ONLY OPTION. I know no being can escape death, but I feel like something can still be done, and I will never give up! The dog you have on the photo has a huge lipoma like my dog. Is that the dog which the owners/parents were able to shrink the lipoma? Can a HUGE lipoma really be shrunken down from the inside of my doggies body by drinking this concoction?
    i will do everything (except surgery)! Any advice for these huge lipomas at the breaking stage? And… if it does “break open”, what do I do to keep him comfortable and wrapped up without getting an infection? And… lastly, if the lipoma breaks through the skin what’s the best treatment?

    1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

      Celery juice (use a blender and drain through a nut bag or similar or put celery in a juice) is one of the main things that had a major impact on my dogs lipoma, the black lab featured throughout my website, including my lead-free pet food bowl blog. We drank it every morning on an empty stomach. He had 1-2 ounces and liked it. Seriously while I was making it, he would bark at me. Give me my juice! The other thing that I think had a major impact is we ate wild blueberries each day. He (75 lb dog) got 1/2 cup of wild blueberries or the berries were included as part of a smoothie. All the 3 NO foods were eliminated and the parsley and turmeric were always included in his food. For joint support and pain, I used this with my dog and it also helped my neighbors dog. The GSD mix in the picture with the big lipoma is a clients dog. His lipoma started around the same time as my dog, the black lab, but the difference is my dogs did not grow b/c of all the stuff I was doing and my client’s dogs lipoma did grow. I have never dealt with one that big so I can’t say what to expect. However, I believe any strategies you implement from this two-part blog should be helping slow the growth rate or reverse it. The one on your dog’s armpit, have you tried applying the #3 herbal supplement. Surgery only removes the physical appearance but it doesn’t change the environment in which it grew, which is the reason many have stated more grew back or bigger than before. Good luck.

      1. Lisa

        Thank you! Well to follow up… I’ve been giving my dog (19 lbs) the 3 vegetables blended.( celery, kale, spinach). I give him the juice (about a half a cup) mixed with his dry food. (non-GMO, no chicken, no grains). He has enjoyed every meal and seems to know it is for his lipoma! We exercise by walking each day in a beautiful park. When I first started giving him the concoction, he was not able to walk and began to yelp when trying to stand up! But, after two weeks now, he has been able to run and play and skip! The lipoma is not as tight to the touch as it was before. It has softened to the touch and the skin around it doesn’t seem as if it is going to “burst through” as it seemed before. I am not sure of the timing for a reduction. I will try the new recipe additives you have suggested! So far, so good! Thank you and I will continue to keep you posted as to his improvement. he does seem tired at times and a bit lethargic, but so do I… ? LOL!
        The armpit situation… Now I will work on that as you suggested. He is such a smart dog and listens when I tell him all of this is for his health! He looks at me where warily and then goes for it! I love him dearly. Thank you, so much and I will keep you updated as to the situation.

        1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

          That is so wonderful that the appearance of the lipoma has changed and your dog can now run and play. Yay! Thank you so much for that fantastic update and I look forward to hearing more! Keep up the good work!

        2. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

          HI Lisa. I wanted to check in with you to see what progress you have made. I look forward to your reply!

          1. Lisa

            So…. it was about 6 months ago when I started giving “Clyde” the blended juice (celery, kale, and spinach). We were on schedule daily for about 4 months, then I missed about 1 month because Clyde and I had to travel across the country and I just couldn’t make it for him during that time. During that break, his lipoma’s began tightening up again, getting larger and more “solid” to the touch.
            When we returned I immediately resumed giving him the concoction, after which they loosened again and he looked better. Yet… I noticed he seemed to have reached a sort of “holding pattern” with regards to the shrinkage so I felt it was time to increase “formula’s” in order to create progression again. I thought about what you said about turmeric and felt it appropriate for him because he seems to be “chilly” quite often. I’m guessing the “cold sections” of his body may have something to do with it.
            So I added turmeric to the celery, kale & spinach, with a half teaspoon of olive oil and blended it together. I read that turmeric needs heat to activate so I heat it up then add his dry food inside. Once again, he ravishes it (like it were a steak), and seems to constantly want more! He can’t wait for breakfast, or dinner and whines and gets extremely excited when he knows it’s that time of day! I have been adding the turmeric for about 3 weeks.
            His walking, running, jumping and spinning are continuing with vigor, and the lipoma on his left hind hip seems not to interfere with his functioning properly. Yet, the lipoma under his right front armpit seems like it’s increasing in size (now about the size of an egg) ? and I can tell he is uncomfortable. His personality has changed a bit, it seems as well… Maybe it’s because he’s getting older (10 years old). I put a sweater on him (which I have rarely ever done), and he seems to prefer it on… as if he’s cold and wants warmth like a security blanket or something. He seems very “needy” as well… meaning he doesn’t seems as independent as in the past. He sets his ears back on his head a lot and looks at me, like he’s asking me for something and I can’t figure out what it is. I hold him tightly and rub his body and cover him with a blanket at night which he now likes. He seems “hungry” and makes growling-whining sounds and wants to be with me every moment-if I leave- he wants to always go… if we’re at home, he curls up in his bed and stays there most of the time. He still eliminates (bowels) well, and it is timely. It is also “big and fluffy” since I’ve given him the concoction 6 months ago, whereas at first, his manure was skinny and hard. I am happy with his progress-happy he is able to walk, jump and spin! A bit mystified at the lipoma under the armpit. I would like to do more (within my budget). Even if I could afford the $2,500 to take off the egg sized one, I’m afraid. He’s so delicate now and I don’t want to take the chance. When I touch them to inspect them, he looks at me out of the corner of his eyes as if he’s asking me “is it ok-do you still want me”? If he’s around other dogs, they notice it and more aggressive dogs will poke at it, which of course, he doesn’t like.
            All in all, I’ve been reading and re-reading your suggestions, and I am going to work in the blueberries next. Being a vegan myself, I know purple (or blue) foods are high in antioxidants… so I will continue to prepare what you have prescribed ?… He is much better and holding-no doubt! And… I want him to feel good and not so worried. So I am continuing forward, including more medicinal diet treatments which I believe in my heart of hearts will help. ♥️?? Thank you for all of your information again…I will continue to keep you posted! ?

          2. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

            Hi Lisa, Thanks for writing back with an update. Trying to juice it while traveling can be hard, I travel for work sometimes too, but I try my best not to skip it all together. Unfortunately when I took a break from the celery juice, I notice a difference too and don’t feel as well as I do when I drink it. The person that I learned about celery juice from says it is best by itself, not mixed with other foods, and on an empty stomach. Not saying it is not helping, clearly it is but I do wonder if you left the kale and spinach out of the juice and added those later in the day, how that will change for Clyde. Tumeric, does NOT need oil as some people suggest, back that out.*The more fat, from animal protein, nuts and oils, the more burden is placed on the liver. The cleaner the diet, will help the liver and therefore the rest of the body and medical issues. Wild blueberries, they are only found in the freezer section, not to be confused with the larger blueberries most people know found in the clamshell in the produce section. Since your dog runs cold, set them out on the counter to defrost for a while before serving. Did you ever try the topical herbal remedy for the his lipoma’s, especially the arm pit one?

            Yes! Thank you so much! I will do that… I will give him the celery juice alone, in the morning on an empty stomach. I will stop adding the olive oil to the concoction. I will find the wild blueberries and serve them at room temperature. And… the herbal remedy? Can you please tell me one more time? ???

            In part 1 – the herbal remedies section, the third item listed can be applied topically AND taken internally. Trader Joes, natural grocery stores and Target have wild blueberries

    I am so very grateful to you for this information. All of our dogs have/do have the fatty tumors. I will be changing their diet immediately! I do have one of my fur babies with a huge one under her armpit. She suffers from pain. Thank you again!!

    My dog eats 22 oz of chicken a day with some sweet potato and green beans. How do you suggest doing a meatless monday that would be enough to keep him full? We also cannot do organic. Its already expensive as is. He gets whatever chicken breast thats on sale. Do you think its better to feed him an organic kibble over cooked food?

      I did it with quinoa and veggies. Trader Joe’s has a pack of breast and legs that is 2.99 p/lb.

    So how are you preparing/combining these foods for you dog to consume them. My dog generally spits out raw veggies when we’ve given them to him. He has several lipomas and I want to do whatever I can to shrink them and prevent new ones.

      This is what I did with my dog. Each dog will be different in what or how they will eat something. The 3 anti-tumor foods are given to him whole or blended in a smoothie. The celery is given as a stick or blended then strained for celery juice. The veggie’s in the anti-tumor diet such as kale and spinach are uncooked, chopped and mix in with the rest of his food and the sweet potatoes are steamed, cooled for chopping and then mixed in.

      Hi, I know this approach works because I have shrunk my Golden’s lipoma to half the size since I put her on a whole food, plant-based diet. I also give my dog a green smoothe everyday and I sprout various seeds and beans too for her. I would like to feed my dog tumeric, but in the past when I’ve added a tiny bit of raw grated tumeric to her food, she’s rejected it. Any tips on how to serve tumeric? I’d rather use the root as opposed to processed turmeric or curcumin. Maybe I could hide some inside of a date?? Thanks for posting this!!

      1. Happy Trails & Wag'n Tails

        I don’t have any tips on the fresh root. 🙁

      Okay, thanks. I’m going to try to hide little pieces of it in sweet potatoes and see if that will work. I tried it raw myself and it’s not bad.Thanks for your post and your reply!

      I think hyper nutrition is the key. Besides the lipoma that shrunk, my dog’s chronic ear infection was eliminated when we switch from a 100% kibble to a 100% whole food plant-based diet.

      My dog loves legumes and carrots and sweet potatoes and tofu. And I supplement with all of the herbs and spices that are health promoting and tumor reducing. I will add blueberries too. Thanks again!
