Canine Lipoma
Fatty Tumors in Dogs

What is a fatty tumor? While a canine lipoma is not life threatening, it should be a major wake up call. If removed, why do more replace them? Let’s look at cause, prevention and natural healing methods.

Lurking just under the skin, these benign lumps come up slowly and usually continue to grow steadily. They may be the size of a pea or the size of a lemon.

May they be your wake up call

What is a Fatty Tumor?

As the name suggests, it's a tumor made of stored fat. But why would the body store fat in a lump?

Good question. The body is smart. It takes toxins that cannot be purged from the body and stores them in a safe place.

That place needs to be away from all the major organs to protect them. And those toxins need to be inside something to keep them from re-entering the bloodstream or the cells.

A lump of fat fills the bill nicely don't you think?.

Cause of Canine Lipoma

Where could these toxins come from? Here are the most common:

  • A cumulative affect  (usually years) from overly processed, chemical laden foods. The body eventually gets overworked and can no longer purge them.
  • The more you vaccinate, the more toxins build up from the vaccine's components.  Think mercury (2nd most toxic substance in the world), aluminum, glyphosate (main ingredient in the weed killer Roundup; it stops the body from purging heavy metals like mercury, arsenic etc.) and formaldehyde (think embalming fluid). Yum!

Can We Stop Feeding Fat
To Cure Fatty Tumors in Dogs?


I was asked this question so I'm adding it to the page. Dogs need good healthy fats for a healthy body. Good fats have vitamins. Good fats are needed to make some vitamins usable. (hence fat soluble vs water soluble).

A common source of bad fat in commercial dog foods  is from rejected animal parts. Are they rejected for human consumption because they are past their prime or cancerous? Probably both. To top it off, they are cooked into oblivion which makes them toxic.

Can Canine Lipoma Lead to Cancer?

In my opinion, the answer is yes.

 The dog in these pictures below was a family dog who was not vaccinated often; ate cheap kibble; got grocery store dog treats; and shared his humans junk food as well. He had 3 lipoma.

His human refused to change anything and the dog later got cancer and died.

Understanding how the body works may help you see how this is possible.

Once the body is overwhelmed by the same toxins over and over, the organs get even more stressed. Digestion is affected. If the body cannot digest, it cannot break foods down. If foods aren't broken down, they cannot properly feed the cells of the body so it's far easier for those cells to mutate.

Cancer is the mutation of cells. Cancer is also fed by sugars, grains and starchy foods. Dry dog food averages about 70% carbohydrates (starch) if I remember correctly. It's never listed on the bag so you have to figure it out yourself.

How to Prevent and Heal
Canine Lipoma

Support your dogs health in a natural way by feeding a quality unprocessed, chemical free diet. Raw is best. (I'll give you a link to some free recipes below)

Stop over-vaccinating.

Consider using the following supplements to clean up the system so the body works well enough to rid itself of fatty tumors.

  • Cellular Detox  has 17 herbs that cleanse the colon, liver, kidneys and promote the absorption of nutrients.
  • N-acetyl-cysteine defends against free radical damage and  eliminates harmful toxins. It protects cells from oxidative stress and supports liver, cardio function, skin and eyes.
  • L-Carnitine because the body requires l-carnitine for the transport of long-chain fatty acids into the cells. (It breaks down fat.)

Package lasts 25 to 90 days depending on the size of your dog. Package includes my guidance during the process. Tax, shipping and handling are also included.

Questions? I'm here to help.

Those fatty tumors didn't grow overnight so probably won't disappear overnight. While some of my customers have had incredible results in a very short time, the longer your dog has had a canine lipoma, the longer it takes to 'undo'. Contact Me for a guideline. I want to be sure we start out and stay on the right track together.

If your dog has a history of digestive problems such as IBS, IBD, pancreatitis etc, the remedies will be a bit different so contact me. Also if your dog has a history of eruptive skin disorders the remedies may vary. Why? We want to support the weakest organs the most so the whole body can work together as nature intended.

Almost forgot! Here's those raw dog food recipes .
