Abnormal Tissue Growth in Dogs and Cats

Abnormal Tissue Growth in Dogs and Cats
Herbal nutrition to help address abnormal tissue growths on dogs and cats.


Herbal treatments to help nutritionally address abnormal growths in dogs and cats including lumps, tumors and fatty lipomas.

Nutrition plays a major role in skin health and is linked to a well functioning immune system, that impacts other organs in the body, including the liver, adrenals, and digestive system. The condition of your pet's skin is often an outward manifestation of what is occurring within the body. Proper nutrition enables your pet's body to fight against environmental toxins, antigens, microorganisms, fungi, bacteria and more.

Tumors are abnormal growths of body tissue. They are either classified as cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign). Cancerous tumors can spread at a rapid rate and can metastasize to other areas of the body. Common malignant tumors in pets include mammary gland tumors, mast cell tumors, oral tumors, malignant melanoma and fibrosarcoma.

Benign tumors are typically less serious as they generally remain localized in one area and do not always metastasize to other areas of the body. Some benign tumors can grow to mammoth proportions and when they are left untreated can eventually cause serious complications.

Tumors and lipomas are evidence that your pet's immune system has been overwhelmed and is out of balance. One of the most common types of tumors seen in vet rooms is called a lipoma, which is a benign soft tissue tumor composed of fatty tissue. Lipomas are usually found under the skin, are normally painless and usually harmless. Still, as a pet parent, a lipoma is a direct indication that your pet's immune system needs to be balanced.  

Tumors occur when there is a problem with the way in which cells of the body divide. Cell division is a strictly controlled process, with new cells being created to replace old cells, and damaged cells, dying so that they can be replaced. When this balance is disturbed, a tumor can develop.

While a clear cause as to why a tumor occurs, there are a few known contributing factors, including a lowered immune system, poor nutrition, obesity, genetic problems, vaccination and toxin exposure. Pet parents are surprised to learn that common house hold products may cause toxicity and in some cases, can even be linked to tumor formation.

Common house hold examples may include cigarette smoke, candles, carpet cleaner, room deodorizers and dryer sheets. Likewise, outside the home can present toxicity in weed killer, lawn fertilizer and chemicals on the driveway and in the garage. Removing these common chemicals may help reduce toxic load in your pets and may help them maintain wellness.

Conventional Remedies:

All growths, bumps and lipomas should be examined by your vet. A biopsy may be taken to determine if the growth is cancerous, which may be either a simple needle biopsy, or by having the tumor removed and biopsied post-operatively. 

Treatment of tumors, lumps and lipomas depend on the size and location. Tumors and/or lipomas that are not growing and are not causing your pet any pain may simply be monitored regularly, while other tumors may require immediate removal if cancer is detected. 

Surgery – Many tumors require surgical removal to either prevent or remove cancerous cells from spreading to other areas of the body. With benign tumors, surgery may be selected to prevent excessive growth and damage to surrounding tissue.

Chemotherapy – If the tumor is found to be malignant then chemotherapy and/or nutritional resources may be recommended. 

Radiation – Used when dealing with cancerous tumors, radiation therapy may be recommended.
