Layne hayvonlarni sevadigan va qutqarilgan kriterlarga to'la uyda o'sgan. U ro'yxatdan o'tgan veterinariya texnikidir.

Agar itingizda yog'li shish paydo bo'lsa, nima qilish kerak

Faqatgina Qo'shma Shtatlarda millionlab itlar har yili lipoma uchun veterinarni ko'rishadi - bu teri ostida paydo bo'ladigan yog'li o'smaning keng tarqalgan turi. Itlarning yoshi oshgani sayin, ular uchun sirli topaklar va zarbalar paydo bo'lishi odatiy holdir. Ba'zi nasllar ham teri anomaliyalarini rivojlanishiga moyil.

Bizning inglizcha Spaniel olti yoshida qanotida juda katta miqdordagi yog'li shish paydo bo'ldi va endi uning tanasida deyarli beshta kichikroq bor. Ko'pgina hollarda yog'li zarbalar yoki lipomalar zararsiz bo'lib, faqat jarrohlik yo'li bilan olib tashlashni talab qiladi, agar ular harakatchanlikni cheklasa yoki shunga o'xshash bo'lsa, siz ularni kuzatishingiz kerak; veterinariya shifokoringiz saraton kasalligiga ishonch hosil qilish uchun har bir topakka ingichka igna aspiratsiyasini o'tkazishi kerak.

Lipoma nima?

Lipoma - bu tez-tez kattalar yoki keksa itlarda paydo bo'ladigan, yaxshi xulqli yog 'o'simtasini nazarda tutadigan atama. Ba'zi lipomalar yillar davomida bir xil darajada qoladi, boshqalari esa o'sishi mumkin; Bundan tashqari, sizning itingiz avval birini yoki keyin bir necha kishini bir necha oy yoki yil ichida ishlab chiqishi mumkin. Ular deyarli hamma joyda o'sadi, lekin ular odatda terining ostida joylashgan. Ba'zan ular mushak to'qimalarida va mushak qatlamlarida o'sadi - bunday turlari infiltrativ lipomalar deb ataladi. Ba'zida yog'li o'smalar uy hayvoningizga noqulaylik tug'dirishi mumkin va jarrohlik yo'li bilan olib tashlash kerak bo'ladi.

Yog'li o'simta itda nimani his qiladi?

Lipomalar (yog'li o'smalar) odatda yumaloq, mayda va shar shaklida seziladi. Ular yarim shar shaklida ham bo'lishi mumkin va itingiz terisi ostida umuman silliq tuzilishga ega bo'lishi mumkin. Ba'zilar qattiqroq va to'qimalarga yopishib oladilar, ammo aksariyati juda harakatchan va umuman teginish paytida yumshoq yoki yumshoq. Siz itingizdagi o'smani og'riqsiz boshqarishingiz kerak. Oqish, qon ketish yoki qorishmaslik kerak. Lipomalar kichik o'lchamlardan (yong'oq kattaligida yoki undan kichikroq) kattaroq zotlarda greyfurt hajmiga qadar bo'lishi odatiy hol emas (bu holda sizning veterinariya allaqachon jarrohlik yo'li bilan olib tashlashni muhokama qilgan bo'lishi kerak). Kattaroq lipomalar bir necha funt og'irlikda bo'lishi mumkin va hatto katta nasllarda ham juda noqulay bo'lishi mumkin.

Itlardagi yog'li o'smalar xavfli yoki saraton kasalmi?

Lipomalar saraton emas. Agar sizning itingizga haqiqiy lipoma tashxisi qo'yilgan bo'lsa, demak, bu faqat yog 'hujayralari, demak, siz o'sish saraton emas va uning o'rniga zararli emas (zararli emas). O'sish metastaz bermaydi. Shunga qaramay, ba'zi itlarning hayoti davomida ko'p miqdordagi lipomalar paydo bo'lishini bilish muhimdir va ular yaxshi xulqli bo'lishiga qaramay, ba'zida bezovtalikka olib kelishi yoki asosiy funktsiyaga to'sqinlik qilishi mumkin va jarrohlik aralashuvni talab qilishi mumkin (masalan, qo'ltiq yoki oyoqlarda).

Ba'zi lipomalar paydo bo'lib, itingizning umri davomida bir xil darajada saqlanib qoladi, boshqalari esa o'sib, kattalashib boradi. Boshqa paytlarda bir nechta mayda bo'laklar tezda paydo bo'lishi va o'zgarishi yoki hajmi va shakli bir xil bo'lishi mumkin. Ularni qat'iy nazar kuzatib borish va har bir tekshiruvda veterinaringizga yangi o'sishlarni ko'rsatish har doim muhimdir.

Liposarkomalar (saraton yog 'o'smalari) va Lipomalarga qarshi

Liposarkomalar maligndir va ko'pincha takrorlanadi. Ular yumshoq to'qimalar sarkomalari guruhiga kiradilar. Ular agressiv davolanishni talab qiladi. Juda kam uchraydigan bo'lsa-da, ular metastaz beradi va tananing boshqa qismlariga tarqaladi. Ular teri ostidagi yoki mushakdagi yarim qattiq bo'laklar kabi sezilishi mumkin. Ular og'riqli emas. Bunday hollarda o'simta darajasini namuna orqali aniqlash uchun lokal anestezikadan foydalangan holda to'qima biopsiyalari tavsiya etiladi. Ushbu o'smalar atrofdagi to'qimalar uchun invaziv hisoblanadi va boshqa organlarga metastaz berishi mumkin (kam bo'lsa ham).

Agar sizning itingizga haqiqatan ham liposarkoma (lar) tashxisi qo'yilgan bo'lsa, jarrohlik yo'li bilan olib tashlashdan tashqari, ular radiatsiya terapiyasi yoki kimyoviy terapiyadan o'tishi talab qilinishi mumkin. Patologiya mutaxassisi operatsiyadan keyingi o'sma (lar) ni turini, darajasini va chegaralarini aniqlash uchun baholaydi (masalan, barchasi olib tashlanganmi?). Sizning veterinaringiz nima qilishni biladi, lekin avval o'sishni baholash kerak - kutmang.

Lipomalarning paydo bo'lishiga nima sabab bo'ladi?

Nega itlar yoshidan tashqari lipomani rivojlantirishi ma'lum emas. Ko'pincha ular irsiydir, garchi bir nechta zotlar ularga moyil bo'lsa. Ba'zan ularga jismoniy shikastlanish sabab bo'lishi mumkin. Quyida lipomalarning ba'zi keng tarqalgan sabablari keltirilgan.

Kambag'al parhez

Qayta ishlangan itlarning ovqatida mavjud bo'lgan uglevodlar, konservantlar va toksinlar yog'li shish paydo bo'lishiga yordam beradi deb o'ylashadi.

Kimyoviy moddalar

Müslüm suvi tarkibida xlor ham mavjud bo'lib, u qalqonsimon bez darajasini buzishi va endokrin tizimni buzishi mumkin. Endokrin tizim va immun tizim tanadagi kiruvchi moddalarni teri orqali yo'q qilish va chiqarib yuborish uchun javobgardir, ammo organizmning bunday moddalarni yo'q qilish harakatlarida yog'li o'smalar paydo bo'lishi mumkin.

Atrof-muhit

Sizning itingiz muhitida pestitsidlar va gerbitsidlar shish paydo bo'lishiga hissa qo'shishi mumkin. O'zingizning hovlida yoki uy atrofidagi joylarda bunday mahsulotlardan foydalanishdan saqlaning. Bundan tashqari, itni tasodifan yutib yubormasliklari yoki panjalari ichiga singib ketmasligi uchun ular itingizni yuvishingiz yoki oyoqlarini yuvishingiz mumkin.

Lipomalarga moyil bo'lgan zotlar

Barcha itlar, ayniqsa, o'rta va undan katta yoshdagi lipomalarni rivojlanishiga moyil. Biroq, ba'zi nasllar ularga moyil. Ushbu zotlar quyidagilarni o'z ichiga oladi: labrador retreyverlari, veymaranlar, doberman pinscherlar, bokschilar va spaniel zotlari.

Ularga qanday tashxis qo'yilgan?

Lipomalarga ko'pincha ingichka igna aspiratsiyasi (yoki FNA) deb nomlangan tashxis qo'yiladi. Bu juda keng tarqalgan protsedura, og'riqsizdir, agar sizning shishingiz juda yuzaki bo'lsa, sizning itingizga uni qo'yish kerak emas. Sizning veterinariya yordamchingiz sizning chorva mollarini qulay tarzda cheklaydi. Keyin ular yog 'o'simtasiga mayda igna kiritib, hujayradan kichik namunalarni so'rib olishadi. Keyin ular shpritsdagi shishlarni tekshirish uchun mikroskopik slaydga urishadi.

Ko'pgina hollarda slaydda yog 'yoki yog' hujayralarini aniqlash va tashxis qo'yish mumkin. Kamdan kam hollarda FNA etarli bo'lmasligi mumkin va sizning itingiz biopsiyaga muhtoj bo'lishi mumkin. Biopsiya odatda patolog yoki laboratoriya tekshiruvi uchun o'smaning kichik namunasini olishni o'z ichiga oladi. Gistopatologiya deb ataladigan biopsiya o'smada mavjud bo'lgan hujayralar turlarini aniq tashxislash imkonini beradi.

Yog'li shishlarni itlardan olib tashlash kerakmi?

Agar sizning veterinaringiz ingichka igna aspiratsiyasini (FNA) o'tkazgandan so'ng va o'smaning o'sishi lipoma deb tashxis qo'yilgan bo'lsa, uni olib tashlash kerakmi yoki yo'qmi, veterinariya bilan maslahatlashasiz. Agar bu sizning itingizning harakatlanishiga to'sqinlik qilsa yoki ular uchun noqulay bo'lsa, u jarrohlik yo'li bilan va behushlik ostida olib tashlanadi. Ba'zi hollarda, sizning veterinaringiz sizning itingizdan o'smaning qanchalik chuqur yoki invaziv ekanligini aniqlash uchun KT yoki MRI o'tkazilishini talab qilishi mumkin.

Agar sizning itingiz yoshi kattaroq bo'lsa, operatsiyadan butunlay qochib qutulishingiz mumkin. Ba'zida operatsiya haqiqatan ham xavfli (o'smaning joylashishi, sog'liqning avvalgi holati, yoshi va itingizni yuqori xavfli behushlik kasaliga aylantiradigan boshqa omillar tufayli).

Ularni qanday qisqartirishim mumkin?

Lipomadan xalos bo'lish uchun jarrohlik amaliyoti eng keng tarqalgan yondashuv bo'lishiga qaramay, itingizning kunlik sog'lig'i va sog'lom turmush tarzida ba'zi bir o'zgarishlarni amalga oshirishingiz mumkin.

Oziqlanish: Bittasi uchun itingiz sifatli oziq-ovqat (himoya, kimyoviy, bo'yoq va qo'shimchalarsiz oziq-ovqat) bilan ta'minlanganligiga ishonch hosil qiling. Bundan tashqari, itingizga musluk suvini (kimyoviy moddalar bilan to'ldirilgan) taklif qilishdan saqlaning. Siz itingizning tanasiga nima qo'yayotganingizni bilishingizga ishonch hosil qilishni xohlaysiz. Ularga mumkin bo'lgan eng sog'lom variantlarni taklif eting.

Mashq qilish: Sizning itingiz hayot bosqichida tavsiya etilgan kerakli miqdordagi mashqlarni bajarayotganiga ishonch hosil qiling. Jismoniy mashqlar sizning itingiz uchun umumiy sog'liqning muhim qismidir, ayniqsa ular uy sharoitida bo'lsa.

Ozish: Sizning itingiz ham sog'lom vaznda ekanligiga ishonch hosil qiling. Haddan tashqari yog 'va vazn ortishi asosan yog'li o'smalarni oziqlantiradi. Itingizning vaznini kamaytirish haqida veterinariya veterinariyangiz bilan suhbatlashing (ularning ideal vazn darajasi qanday). Qoldiqlar va axlatga atıştırmalıklar berishni to'xtating va kerak bo'lganda foydali alternativ taomlarni taklif qiling.

Kimyoviy moddalardan saqlaning: Har doimgidek, uyingizda yoki maysazorda gerbitsidlar, pestitsidlar va boshqa endokrin buzuvchilarni ishlatishdan saqlaning. Uyni tozalash uchun ishlatiladigan ba'zi kimyoviy moddalar ham muammoli bo'lishi mumkin va endokrin bezovtalanuvchi hisoblanadi. Yashash joyingizni sog'lom holda saqlang va hayvonlaringizni bezovta qiluvchi tarkibiy qismlarga duchor qilmang.

Aqliy sog'lomlik: Immunitet va tana salomatligi umumiy sog'lomlik bilan chambarchas bog'liq. Agar sizning itingiz stressli, tushkunlikka tushgan yoki baxtsiz bo'lsa, bu ularga jismoniy darajada ham ta'sir qilishi mumkin. Ularga g'amxo'rlik qiling va ularga hamma narsani va boshqalarni taklif qiling. Ularning sog'lig'iga foyda keltiradi!

Layni H (muallif) 2021 yil 17-yanvarda Oregon shtatidagi Benddan:

Assalomu alaykum Liz, men xavfsiz bo'lish uchun uni doim tekshirib ko'rishga roziman. Ularning oddiygina yog'li (yaxshi xulqli) o'smalar ekanligini aniqlash oson. Nima bo'lishidan qat'iy nazar, ular haqida ma'lumot olish uchun yaxshi manbaga ega bo'lish juda muhimdir. Umid qilamanki, ushbu maqola ko'plab savollarga ega bo'lgan boshqa egalariga yordam beradi.

Layni H (muallif) 2021 yil 17-yanvarda Oregon shtatidagi Benddan:

Salom Lora, lipomalar bilan tajribangizni baham ko'rganingiz uchun tashakkur. Men har qanday topaklar bilan asabiylashaman, albatta, biz ularni tekshirib ko'rishimiz kerak. Sizning boquvchi itingiz saraton kasalligi haqida eshitganimdan afsusdaman. Bu mening eng katta qo'rquvim. Maqolani foydali deb topganingizdan xursandman.

Layni H (muallif) 2021 yil 12-yanvarda Oregon shtatining Bend shahridan:

Salom Peggi, o'qiganingiz uchun tashakkur. Itingizning lipomalarini muammoli bo'lmaganini eshitganimdan xursandman. Yaqinda bizning itimiz bir nechta rivojlandi, shuning uchun boshqa egalariga biroz yengil bo'lishlariga yordam berish uchun bu haqda bir oz yozmoqchiman deb o'yladim. Biz ularning hammasini tekshirib ko'rdik va ular faqat yog 'bo'laklari edi.

Peggi Vuds 2021 yil 11-yanvarda Texasning Xyuston shahridan:

Bizning itlarimizdan birida lipoma bor edi, ammo ular saraton kasalligi bo'lmagan yoki unga hech qanday to'sqinlik qilmagan, shuning uchun ular olib tashlanmagan. Ushbu ma'lumotli maqolani yozganingiz uchun tashakkur.

Lora Xollings 2021 yil 10-yanvarda:

Leyn itlardagi saraton o'smalariga qarshi itlarda yaxshi yog'li o'smalar haqida juda yaxshi maqola. Itning farovonligi va egasining xotirjamligi uchun har qanday topaklar tekshirilishi kerak. Bizning Westie aralashmasi shunchaki lipomalardan iborat bo'lgan bir qator parchalarga ega. Ammo biz itni boqdik, uning boshida katta o'simta bor edi, u afsuski, zararli bo'lib chiqdi. Veterinariya yuzaki o'sma deb o'ylagan narsa aslida suyakka biriktirilgan va oxir-oqibat unga sinus saratoni tashxisi qo'yilgan. U allaqachon metastazlanganidek, hech narsa qilish mumkin emas edi. Bu juda achinarli edi, chunki biz bu shirin bolani juda yaxshi ko'rardik. Siz shuningdek, lipomalar hajmini kamaytirish bo'yicha ajoyib takliflarni berasiz. Biz bularning barchasini itlarimizni sog'lom va baxtli saqlash uchun qilishga harakat qilamiz! Barcha it egalari uchun ushbu muhim ma'lumotlarni baham ko'rganingiz uchun tashakkur.

Liz Vestvud 2021 yil 10-yanvar kuni Buyuk Britaniyadan:

Bu foydali va qiziqarli maqola. Ko'pincha shish paydo bo'lganda, biz eng yomon narsani o'ylashga moyil bo'lamiz. Bu sizga rekord o'rnatishga yordam beradi va it egalariga barcha topaklar saraton kasalligi emasligiga ishonch hosil qiladi. Ularni tekshirib ko'rish eng yaxshisidir.


Itlardagi lipomalar belgilari

(Rasm krediti: Getty Images)

Lipomalar membrana bilan o'ralgan yog'dan iborat. Ular sizning itingizning tanasida deyarli hamma joyda topilishi mumkin.

Agar siz yumshoq, og'riqsiz bossangiz va ular ustida terida hech qanday o'zgarish yuzaga kelmasa, topaklar harakatga keltiriladi. Ba'zilar teginish uchun qattiqroq bo'lishi mumkin.

Itlarda bitta yog'li o'sma yoki bir nechta shish paydo bo'lishi mumkin. Ushbu yaxshi xulqli o'smalar odatda xavfli emas, ammo ba'zilari sizning itingizga noqulaylik tug'diradigan yoki itning harakatiga xalaqit beradigan darajada o'sishi mumkin.

Xavfsiz bo'lish uchun itingizda o'sishni sezsangiz, siz doimo veterinaringizni ko'rishingiz kerak. Ular sizning itingizning o'sishi zararsiz yoki tashvishga sabab bo'ladimi-yo'qligini aniq aytib berishlari mumkin.


Itdan yog'li shish (lipoma) haqida veterinariyadan so'rang

Amaliy veterinar sifatida doktor Dym 19 yildan ortiq tajribaga ega va uy hayvonlarining umumiy salomatligi va farovonligini oshirishga bag'ishlangan. Uning uy hayvonlari sog'lig'iga bo'lgan sadoqati va ishtiyoqi uni doimiy ravishda o'qitish va o'qitish orqali gomeopatiya san'ati va ilmi haqida ko'proq bilishga undaydi.

Savol: Doktor, Bellaning yog'li o'simtasini kamaytirish uchun berishim mumkin bo'lgan narsa bormi? U qo'ltig'ida va 2019 yil may oyida jarrohlik amaliyotini o'tkazgan, ammo u yana o'sib chiqqan. U miniatyurali schnauzer, u shu yilning aprel oyida 9 yoshga to'ladi. Rahmat.

Javob: Menga bu savol juda ko'p berilayapti, shuning uchun kimdir ularni qisqartirishga yordam beradigan narsani ishlab chiqishi kerak, ammo yo'q, faqat jarrohlik yordam beradi. Agar ortiqcha vazn bo'lsa, uni yo'qotish ozgina yordam berishi mumkin, ammo bu yo'qolmaydi.

Savol: Mening itim yog'li topaklar (yog'li lipomalar) bilan sinovdan o'tkazildi. Ular xursand bo'lganimdan xursandman. Mening savolim - bu lipomalarga yordam berish uchun men unga nima bera olaman, men unga berish uchun har xil narsalarni o'qiyapman, lekin ular haqida juda chalkash. Men unga Omega-3 baliq yog'ini bermoqchiman, lekin bu haqda o'qiyapman va uning iti uchun juda ko'p baliq yog'i bo'lishi yaxshi emasligini aytaman. Bundan tashqari, o'simliklardan olingan ba'zi mahsulotlar haqida o'qidim. Sizningcha, itimga nima yordam beradi.

Javob: Agar bu itlar uchun ishlab chiqarilgan mahsulot bo'lsa, u foydali bo'lishi mumkin, ammo lipomalar uchun foydali emas - ularni yo'q qilishga yordam beradigan (og'zaki yoki topikal) narsa yo'q - ularni jarrohlik yo'li bilan olib tashlash kerak, chunki bu ko'pincha kerak emas, chunki ular benigndir.

Savol: Salom! Taxminan bir oy oldin itlarimning o'ng tomonidagi qovurg'a suyagini topdim. Taxminan chorakning kattaligiga teng va uni ushlaganimda / tortganimda, uning terisi ostidagi aylantirilgan / harakatlanadigan kichkina to'p kabi his qilaman. U 5 yoshli oltin zinapoyadir va bundan bezovtalanmaganga o'xshaydi (u qizarib yoki yallig'lanmagan). Bu bizning veterinariya tomonidan tekshirilishi kerak bo'lgan narsa yoki faqat yog'li o'simtami, qanday qilib bilsam bo'ladi? Rahmat!

Javob: Massalar zararsiz, zararli va boshqa narsalar bo'lishi mumkin. Uning tarkibida qanday hujayralar borligini faqat massaga qarab aytish mumkin emas. Veterinaringizga buni tekshirib ko'ring - ular odatda "ingichka igna aspirati" ni amalga oshiradilar - kichkina mini-biopsiya, u erda kichkina ignani tiqib, ba'zi hujayralarni so'rib oladilar va o'zlarining ish joylarida unga qarashadi yoki yuborishadi. patologga. Keyin buning uchun reja tuzishingiz mumkin - agar u aniq zararsiz bo'lsa, veterinaringiz hech narsa qilmaslikni tavsiya qilishi mumkin.

Savol: Mening itim osmonida u 10 yildan beri sakkiz yildan beri oyog'ida bu o'sma osilgan va hech qachon hech narsa qilinmagan, shunchaki o'sha erda osilgan, ammo endi u yalayapti, qonayotgani, yuqtirganga o'xshaydi va u dahshatli hid. Men unga operatsiya qilish imkoniyatini berolmayman, chunki bu operatsiya uchun 600 dollar. Doktor Blim unga ba'zi antibiotiklarni buyurishi kerak edi, ammo men undan hali xabar olmadim. Men unga shunchaki omega uchtasini buyurdim, lekin yana nima qilishim mumkin. Men ustiga qo'yadigan biron bir narsa bormi, uni iltimos, biron bir narsaga o'rab qo'ying va menga yordam bera oladigan qizim uchun juda minnatdorman. Men mobil nogironlar kolyaskasida nogiron keksa odamman va jarrohlik amaliyoti uchun 600 AQSh dollari gap bo'lishi mumkin emas. U mening qo'llab-quvvatlovchi itimga o'xshaydi u menga g'amxo'rlik qiladi u meni himoya qiladi u sevgilim va men uni juda yaxshi ko'raman

Javob: Biron narsani tavsiya qilish uchun uni ko'rishim kerak edi. Umuman olganda, biz ularni o'ramaslikka harakat qilamiz. Umid qilamanki, bu ikkinchi darajali yuqtirilgan va antibiotiklar yordam beradi - ularni iloji boricha tezroq boshlang.

Savol: Mening 12 yoshli labrador retrieverim to'pig'ining yonida yog'li o'sma bor yoki menimcha, u yog'li o'sma deb ta'riflanadi. Kecha teginish qiyin bo'ldi va avvalgidek qichqiriq emas edi. Yana bir soatdan keyin uning butun oyog'i tobora kattalashib, go'yo shishib ketganday tuyuladi. U zo'rg'a yura oladi va o'z-o'zidan turolmaydi. Agar ular ishtahani yo'qotgan bo'lsa, demak ular og'riqli ekanligini o'qidim. Biz nima qilishimiz kerak? Unga nima bo'layapti?

Javob: Bu yuqtirilgandek tuyuladi, lekin u ham saraton kasalligini kuchaytirishi mumkin, shuning uchun albatta veterinaringizni imkon qadar tezroq tekshirib ko'ring, buning uchun reja tuzishingiz mumkin.

Savol: Mening sakkiz yoshli oltin retriverimning terisi ostida qorinning markazida no'xat kattalikdagi qattiq zarba bor. Men bu endi shakllana boshlagan lipoma bo'lishi mumkinmi deb o'ylardim. Bosilganda og'riq paydo bo'lmaydi va boshqa alomatlar yo'q. Jozef kastigliyaga rahmat.

Javob: Massalar zararsiz, zararli va boshqa narsalar bo'lishi mumkin. Uning tarkibida qanday hujayralar borligini faqat massaga qarab aytish mumkin emas. Veterinaringizga buni tekshirib ko'ring - ular odatda "ingichka igna aspirati" ni amalga oshiradilar - kichkina mini-biopsiya, u erda kichkina ignani tiqib, ba'zi hujayralarni so'rib oladilar va o'zlarining ish joylarida unga qarashadi yoki yuborishadi. patologga. Keyin buning uchun reja tuzishingiz mumkin - agar u aniq zararsiz bo'lsa, veterinaringiz hech narsa qilmaslikni tavsiya qilishi mumkin.

Savol: Assalomu alaykum, menda 7 yoshli Koker Spaniel bor va u 2 ta yog'li o'sma borligini payqadim. Men ularning ikkalasini ham veterinariya tekshiruvidan o'tkazgan edim, lekin uni itlar uchun qanday ovqat bilan boqishim kerak deb o'ylayman. U Hills Original nam ovqatida va Nature's Recipe-da quruq. Sizga katta rahmat.

Javob: Ikkala oziq-ovqat ham yaxshi ovqatlar, shuning uchun agar u yaxshi ishlayotgan bo'lsa, uni o'zgartirishga hojat yo'q, chunki ular iste'mol qilayotgan ovqat yog'li o'smalarga umuman ta'sir qilmaydi.

Savol: Assalomu alaykum, mening ismim Uilli Uayl, bizda og'izda o'sadigan laboratoriya bor va qon ketishi bilan buni qanday qilib uyimda davolashim mumkin va men hozirda veterinariya amaliyotiga qiziqmayman.

Javob: Og'izdagi o'sish juda tajovuzkor bo'ladi, shuning uchun tashxis qo'yish va davolash usullari uchun veterinaringizga murojaat qilish juda yaxshi. Sizga moliyaviy cheklovlaringiz borligini ayting va ko'pchilik veterinariya siz bilan ishlaydi.

Savol: Men buni 11 yoshli chixuaning oyog'ida payqadim. Yaqinda uchrashuvga borishga harakat qilyapman, lekin bu birodar jiddiy ko'rinadimi, deb o'yladimmi?

Javob: Massalar zararsiz, yomon xulqli va ular orasidagi hamma narsa bo'lishi mumkin. Uning tarkibida qanday hujayralar borligini faqat massaga qarab aytish mumkin emas. Veterinaringizga buni tekshirib ko'ring - ular odatda "ingichka igna aspirati" ni amalga oshiradilar - kichkina mini-biopsiya, u erda kichkina ignani tiqib, ba'zi hujayralarni so'rib oladilar va o'zlarining ish joylarida unga qarashadi yoki yuborishadi. patologga.

Savol: Salom! Uy hayvonimga old oyog'ida lipoma tashxisi qo'yilgan. Uning 2 ta joyi bor va u endi 1 ta katta zarbaga aylanib bormoqda. Ulardan biri uning mushaklariga bostirib kirmoqda. Samarali davolash usuli bormi? Men olma sirkasi va karahindiba haqida o'qiganman, ammo dorilar haqida hech narsa ko'rmaganman. U hech qachon burga uchun Brevektodan boshqa hech narsa olmagan.

Lipoma atrofida to'g'ridan-to'g'ri disektsiya qilish

Jarrohning steril qo'lqop barmoqlari tekshiruv o'tkazadi va lipomani o'rab turgan biriktiruvchi to'qimalarni yumshoq qilib ajratadi. Bu lipomani olib tashlashga tayyorgarlik jarayonida massani aniqlashga va mayda tomirlardan qon ketishini kamaytirishga yordam beradi.


It Lipomalarini davolashning eng yaxshi variantlari

Lipomalar (yog 'o'smalari deb ham ataladi) haqida biror narsa qilish mumkinmi (yoki kerakmi)?

Uh-oh. Bu nima? Sizning itingizning tanasida har qanday o'sish e'tiborga loyiqdir, ayniqsa, oxirgi marta tekshirganingizda yo'q edi. Bu yog 'kistasi (teridagi yog' bezlari tiqilib qolishi natijasida hosil bo'lgan yog 'yog'i, pishloqli yoki yog'li material bilan to'ldirilgan sumka), xo'ppoz (infektsiya natijasida kelib chiqqan yiringli shish) yoki har kimning dahshatli tushi - saraton kasalligi bo'lishi mumkin. o'sma. Ammo aksariyat hollarda itlarimizni boqish va boqish paytida biz topadigan narsalar - bu yog 'o'smalari deb ham ataladigan benign (saraton bo'lmagan) yog' birikmalari bo'lgan lipomalar.

Qo'shma Shtatlarda har yili taxminan 1,7 million itlar lipomalar bilan davolanadi va bitta tadqiqotga ko'ra, amerikalik veterinariya shifokorlari har yili o'rtacha 25 ta lipomni olib tashlashadi, bu esa 635 million dollar egalariga zarar etkazadi.

Lipomalar itlar o'rta yoshga etganda paydo bo'ladi va itlar qarigan sayin ularning soni ko'payadi. Bitta lipomaga ega bo'lgan it ko'proq yuqishi mumkin. Lipomalar ko'pincha ko'krak, qorin, oyoq yoki qo'ltiq osti qismida (qo'ltiq osti qismida) uchraydi. Ushbu yog'li bo'laklar og'riqli emas va ular odatda atrofdagi to'qimalarga kirmasdan bir joyda turadilar. Itlar lipomalarga ega bo'lgan yagona hayvonlar emas, chunki ular odamlarda va parakeetsda uchraydi va ular vaqti-vaqti bilan mushuk va otlarda rivojlanadi.

Itlarning lipomalari ko'pincha ortiqcha vaznli ayollar bilan bog'liq bo'lsa-da, ularning eng katta xavf omili genetik bo'lishi mumkin. "Men har xil nazariyalarni eshitganman", deydi Tena Nelson, DVM, Helena, Montana. «Ba'zi veterinariya shifokorlari lipomalar haddan tashqari emlash, uy hayvonlari uchun oziq-ovqat, donga asoslangan parhez va atrof-muhit toksinlari ta'siridan kelib chiqishiga amin. Lipomali itlarning aksariyati ushbu tavsifga mos keladigan bo'lsa-da, men sizga donsiz xom ashyo va minimal emlashlar, shu jumladan o'zimnikilarni yaxlit ravishda boqilgan ko'p sonli itlarni ko'rsataman. Oddiy haqiqat shundaki, nima qilsangiz ham ba'zi itlarda lipoma paydo bo'ladi ».

Har qanday it ta'sir qilishi mumkin, ammo lipomalar ko'pincha Labrador Retrivers, Doberman Pinschers, Miniatyura Shnauzers, Cocker Spaniels, Dachshunds, Poodles, Terrier va aralash zotlarda uchraydi.

Nima qilish kerak
Ko'pgina lipomalar teri osti (teri osti qismida paydo bo'ladi) va harakatchan bo'lib, teriga yoki mushak yoki to'qimalarga asoslanmagan. Ular odatda kichik yoki yumaloq yoki tasvirlar, marmar yoki marshmallow kattaligi va teginish uchun yumshoq yoki rezina. Bir necha kishi tolali to'qima yoki yallig'lanish tufayli o'zini qattiqroq his qiladi. Ba'zilar golf to'pi kattaligiga qadar o'sadi va juda katta lipomalar beysbolga o'xshash bo'lishi mumkin. Bir nechtasi uzun va keng bo'lib o'sadi.

Shish paydo bo'lishining lipoma ekanligini faqat sezish bilan aniqlashning iloji yo'qligi sababli, veterinariya shifokorlari o'simtada faqat yog 'hujayralari borligini tasdiqlash uchun mayda igna aspiratsiyasi deb nomlangan biopsiya protsedurasi bilan suyuqlik ichidan chiqarib tashlaydi va tekshiradi. Ba'zilar, agar zararli zararli bo'lmasa, ingichka igna aspiratining saraton kasalligini yuqtirish ehtimoli haqida tashvishlanmoqda va bu tashvish qorin yoki yurakdagi o'smalar uchun (ayniqsa ular ultratovush yordamida aniqlanishi mumkin bo'lgan suyuqlik bilan to'ldirilgan bo'lsa) yoki siydik yo'llarida, shu jumladan siydik pufagi va prostata bezlarida. Lipomalar bilan chalkashtirib yuborilishi mumkin bo'lgan teri osti qattiq o'smalarini aspiratsiya qilishda, bu xavf kichik va aniq tashxis qo'yish afzalliklaridan ustundir.

Yog'li o'smalar uchun odatiy tavsiya kutish va tomosha qilishdir. Ba'zida lipomalar tez rivojlanadi, ammo aksariyat hollarda ularning o'sishi sekinlashadi. Agar ular juda katta bo'lmaguncha yoki ularning joylashuvi mexanik muammolarni keltirib chiqarmasa, ular kamdan-kam hollarda muammo tug'diradi. Masalan, qo'ltiqdagi lipoma itning yurishiga ta'sir qilishi mumkin, sternumdagi (ko'krak sohasi) esa it yotganida noqulaylik tug'diradi, bo'yin atrofidagi lipoma esa, agar u etarlicha katta bo'lsa, nafas olishga xalaqit berishi mumkin. va to'g'ri bo'yinbog '.

Nyu-Yorkdagi Xastings-on-Hudson shahridan DVM, Stacey Hershman, "Men hech qachon benign lipomalarda, agar ular ambulyatsiya yoki boshqa funktsiyalarga jismoniy to'sqinlik qilmasa, men hech qachon operatsiya qilmayman", deydi. "Men hech qachon kosmetik sabablarga ko'ra lipomani olib tashlamayman, chunki lipoplastik operatsiyadan keyin itlarning kasal bo'lib qolganini yoki jigar etishmovchiligini ko'rganman. Shuning uchun mijozlarimga ularni olib tashlash uchun tibbiy sabab bo'lmasa, ularni yolg'iz qoldirishni maslahat beraman. Bir necha yil ilgari it qo'ltig'iga shunchalik ulkan lipomani olib kirdiki, u yurolmay qoldi va men uni funktsional sabablarga ko'ra olib tashladim ».

Ba'zi lipomalar shu qadar tez o'sadiki, ular boshqa narsa bo'lishi mumkin, masalan, liposarkoma. Ushbu noyob, xavfli yog'li o'sma odatda metastaz bermaydi (tananing boshqa qismlariga tarqaladi), ammo u tajovuzkor va tez o'sishi mumkin. Lipomalar bilan adashishi mumkin bo'lgan terida yoki ostida yuzaga keladigan boshqa o'smalarga yog 'adenomalari, mast hujayralari o'smalari, gemangiosarkomalar va gemangioperitsitomalar kiradi. Agar tashxis haqida biron bir savol bo'lsa, uni olib tashlash eng xavfsiz variant bo'lishi mumkin.

Ba'zida lipomalar mushaklar, tendonlar, suyaklar, nervlar yoki bo'g'im kapsulalari orasidagi konektsion to'qimalarga ta'sir qiladi. Infiltrativ lipomalar deb ataladigan bu odatda oyoqlarda uchraydi, ammo ko'krak qafasi, bosh, qorin tanasi devori yoki perianal mintaqaga ta'sir qilishi mumkin. Infiltrativ lipomalar harakatga aralashish orqali og'riq, mushak atrofiyasi va oqsoqlanishni keltirib chiqarishi mumkin. Oddiy lipomalardan farqli o'laroq, infiltrativ lipomalarni butunlay olib tashlash qiyin va ko'pincha qayta o'sib borishi mumkin. Infiltratsion lipomalar ko'pincha Labrador Retrivers va Doberman Pinscherlarda uchraydi.

Barcha infiltrativ lipomalar muammo tug'dirmaydi. Suzi Folkner 2011 yil yanvar oyida 3 yoshli Rottvayler Gusni qutqargan Atlantika Rottweiler Rescue Foundation (ARRF) prezidenti. "Gus Tennesi shtatidagi boshpanadan tortib olindi", deydi u. «Bizning ko'ngillilarimiz uni olib ketishganda, uning yelka pichog'i atrofida bir guruh donalar borligini aniqladilar. Veterinariya shifokori mayda bo'laklarni olib tashladi, ammo katta topak Gusning yelkasiga singib ketgan va uni olib tashlash yelkaning bir qismini olib tashlashni anglatadi. Yaxshi sinovdan o'tkazildi, shuning uchun u yolg'iz qoldi ».

Folkner uning lipomasi Gusga uy topishga xalaqit berishidan qo'rqardi, ammo Merilend shtatidagi Ouings Mills shahridan Skott Adelman Gusga muhabbat qo'ydi va uni jarrohlik amaliyotidan qutulishi bilanoq asrab oldi. Bir yarim yildan so'ng Adelman Gus odatdagidek yugurish va o'ynashga qodirligini va u og'riq ko'rmasligini aytdi. "Gus dunyodagi eng yaxshi it", deydi u.

Tibbiy davolanish
Ba'zi lipomalarni faqat sedativ va lokal anestezik yordamida olib tashlash mumkin. Katta, noqulay joylashtirilgan yoki ko'p miqdordagi lipomalar uchun operatsiya umumiy behushlik talab qiladi. Oddiy lipomalar olib tashlanganidan keyin kamdan-kam hollarda o'sib chiqadi, ammo boshqalar paydo bo'lishi mumkin. Infiltrativ lipomalar bo'yicha operatsiya murakkabroq va bu o'sishlar 3 oydan 16 oygacha takrorlanadi. Radiatsiya terapiyasi ularning qaytalanishini oldini oladi yoki kechiktirishi mumkin, ximioterapiya esa foyda keltirmaydi.

Ilgari kaltsiy xloridning 10 foizli eritmasi bilan kichik lipomalar AOK qilingan, bu esa shishlarning kichrayishiga olib kelgan, ammo tirnash xususiyati va terining qattiq shikastlanishi sababli bu davolash endi tavsiya etilmaydi.

Liposaktsiya, kosmetik jarrohlikda odamdan yog'ni bo'shatib yuboradigan protsedura, ko'p hollarda jarrohlik yo'li bilan olib tashlashdan ko'ra kamroq invaziv, og'riqli va tezroq davolanadi.

2006 yilda Patch ismli 12 yoshli Kelpie-xoch Avstraliyaning Sidney shahrida liposaktsiyadan o'tgan birinchi it italigi bo'lgan sarlavhalarga aylandi. Patchda bir nechta lipoma bor edi, ulardan biri orqa oyog'ida uni bir necha oy ichida cho'loq qilish bilan tahdid qildi. Odatda operatsiya paytida suyuqliklarni tozalash uchun ishlatiladigan assimilyatsiya vositasi yordamida itga liposaktsiya o'tkazgan evropalik veterinarni eslab, avstraliyalik veterinar ushbu usulni Patch-da sinab ko'rishni taklif qildi. Bir soat davom etgan protsedura ikki kilogramm og'irlikdagi oltita yog'li o'smani olib tashladi (4,4 funt yoki Patch tana vaznining 10 foizi). Tez orada u yana quvnoq va o'ynoqi edi.

2007 yil yanvar oyida Journal of Small Animal Practice nashri Germaniyaning Leyptsig shahridagi itdan uchta yirik lipomani liposaktsiya yo'li bilan olib tashlash haqida xabar berdi. Juda semiz bemor artrit va orqa oyoq oqsoqligi va qo'ltiq lipomasi tufayli tirnash xususiyati bilan og'rigan. Oziqlanishni kamaytirish va steroid bo'lmagan yallig'lanishga qarshi dorilarni o'z ichiga olgan avvalgi davolash muvaffaqiyatsiz tugadi. Liposuction of the three lipomas resulted in a three-kilogram weight loss (6.6 pounds, or 10 percent of the dog’s body weight).

In a retrospective study published in July 2011, the Journal of Small Animal Practice reviewed the use of liposuction on multiple lipomas from 20 dogs. The treatment successfully removed 73 of 76 lipomas (96 percent). Simple, encapsulated lipomas measuring less than 6 inches in diameter were the easiest to remove and resulted in minimal risk of complication. Giant lipomas contained fibrous material that interfered with the removal of fat and had a high risk of bruising, hematoma, and seroma (fluid-filled swelling), especially in the groin area. Regrowth occurred nine months to three years later in 28 percent of the lipomas. Liposuction is not recommended for infiltrative lipomas.

The newest lipoma treatment for dogs and humans is the injection of collagenase, an enzyme that breaks the peptide bonds in collagen, the fibrous protein that connects body tissues. Developed by BioSpecifics Technologies Corporation and marketed as XIAFLEX® in the U.S. and XIAPEX® in Europe and Eurasia, collagenase is being tested in clinical trials.

One preliminary trial tested three healthy dogs with multiple subcutaneous lipomas that were benign, superficial, and easily measurable. One lipoma on each dog was injected with collagenase and another was left untreated for use as a control. Ninety days after injection, a CT scan showed that the treated lipomas on two of the dogs had disappeared completely and the third dog’s treated lipoma was only 7 percent of its original size. By contrast, the control lipomas had grown. Altogether, the treated lipomas showed a 97-percent reduction in size while the untreated controls increased by 23 percent.

BioSpecifics has initiated a placebo-controlled, single-injection randomized Phase II clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of XIAFLEX for treatment of benign subcutaneous lipomas in 32 canines in a study to be completed in 2013. This will be followed by a Phase III clinical trial before the product becomes commercially available.

Complementary Therapies
Because lipomas are so common in overweight dogs, one obvious treatment is weight loss. In some cases, diet and exercise have reduced the size of existing lipomas and may have helped prevent new ones from developing. Even if your dog’s lipomas don’t shrink as a result, helping an overweight dog trim down should help her feel better and be more active.

Switching to a raw, grain-free diet has been said to help some dogs, although most raw diets are high in fat, which may be counterproductive.

Limiting vaccinations may help some dogs, especially if lipomas tend to occur after vaccination.

“In my practice I have been following numerous dogs who are now 6 to 14 years old,” says Judith K. Herman, DVM, of Augusta, Maine. “So far these dogs, all of whom received minimal vaccinations and are fed raw, have not developed any lipomas. Most are Jack Russell Terriers, Belgian Tervurens, Labrador Retrievers, and Golden Retrievers.”

Acupressure
While acupuncture involves the insertion of needles along the body’s meridians, acupressure applies finger touch or massage to the same points. As Amy Snow and Nancy Zidonis explained in “Truly Healing Touch,” (WDJ, March 2009) and other WDJ articles, the basic principle underlying the healing process is that vital substances nourish the body while moving harmoniously through it. Two of these vital substances are chi (or qi), which is life-promoting energy, and blood, a nutrient-rich body fluid. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, “blood” includes other body fluids, such as synovial fluid in the joints or the nutrient-rich fluid within the spinal column.

“My dog Oak was a lipoma creator of great dimension,” says Snow, “and acupressure worked to resolve them for most of his life. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, a lipoma is a stagnation of body fluids. The challenge is to bring chi through the area to move or disperse the fluids. The longer they stay, the more difficult it is to resolve them because they become ‘cold.’ Additionally, the younger the dog, the more quickly lipomas can be resolved. As the dog ages, his system naturally slows down and this slowing leads to an increase in developing lipomas.”

Even as a 2-year-old, Oak, who was an affectionate, easy-going Golden Retriever, created lipomas. “I’d run my hands over him almost every day to see if there were any new ones,” she says. “I had him checked for hypothyroidism to see if his metabolism was normal, and it was. Oak’s lustrous coat often hid the lipomas until they were obvious. But I did my best to locate them and get to work with acupressure massage, also called Tui Na in Chinese, as a way to increase the movement of chi and body fluids through each lipoma.”

For six years, Snow resolved Oak’s lipomas with these techniques. After age eight, although they remained small, his lipomas became a management issue and were not completely resolved. At age 11, one had to be removed because it hindered walking. The following year, Oak passed away with only a few minor lipomas.

“Lipomas are relatively superficial, just beneath the skin, and so are the meridians,” says Snow. “That’s why working along the meridians that pass through a lipoma works. If people use acupressure around a lipoma but not on meridian points, it will not be as effective and in fact may not be effective at all. Graduates of the Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute training program have shown the guardians/owners of dogs with lipomas how to perform some of these procedures on a consistent basis. Applying acupressure massage every day for six days, then taking a one-day break, then continuing for another five or six days and repeating the pattern until the lipoma is resolved seems to be an important element in ridding dogs of lipomas.”

For best results, consult a canine acupressure practitioner who can show you exactly which acupoints affect energy flowing through a specific lipoma, or practice on your own with the help of Acu-Dog: A Guide to Canine Acupressure.

Herbal Medicine
Herbs have been used for millennia to treat every type of condition, and today’s science confirms the effectiveness of many ancient remedies. Turmeric (Curcuma longa), the root that gives Indian curries their distinctive color and flavor, has a long history of use in Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of East India, especially for digestive disorders and arthritis. Curcumin is the active ingredient responsible for turmeric’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Andrew Stowe of Fairfax, Virginia, gave turmeric root powder to Cayman, his 13-year-old yellow Lab/hound-mix, as part of a treatment for arthritis. Cayman had developed six large and medium-sized lipomas, and while he was taking turmeric, three of them disappeared and the others shrank. After six months the arthritis treatment stopped working (Cayman began limping again), so Stowe discontinued the treatment. The dog’s lipomas returned and he developed even more. Stowe thinks the turmeric may have suppressed their growth.

The protocol Stowe followed for 80-pound Cayman combined turmeric powder with other supplements, beginning with a four-week dose of 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder morning and evening then two weeks at 1/2 teaspoon twice per day then 3/4 teaspoon twice per day.

It’s a good idea to begin any herbal treatment with small doses and increase gradually to the recommended amount, which in the case of turmeric is often 1/4 teaspoon for small dogs, 1/2 teaspoon for medium-sized dogs and 1 teaspoon for large dogs daily. Give with food to prevent stomach upsets. Be sure your turmeric is Curcuma longa (verify the herb’s Latin name) and not an inexpensive substitute, and, because turmeric dyes everything yellow, wash your hands after handling.

Curcumin extract is much more concentrated than the powdered root. Recommended dosage varies, but one product made for dogs suggests giving 20 to 60 mg per 10 pounds of body weight daily. Higher doses, up to 2,000 mg twice a day for a large dog, are used to treat dogs with cancer. Combining curcumin with bromelain may increase absorption.

Herbalist Ingrid Naiman developed “Stone Free” Herbal Support for Kidney and Gallbladder using turmeric and other herbs. “It emulsifies fat,” she says. “We have seen it completely remove fatty deposits under the skin.”

Alyssia Greiner of Manassas, Virginia, tried a Chinese herbal treatment for her 9-year-old Border Collie, Zippity, when she developed a large lipoma on her right shoulder, another on her right ribcage, and a small one inside her left leg. Her vet prescribed “Cluster Dissolving,” a traditional blend of 11 Chinese herbs.

“Zip has been on it for about six months,” says Greiner, “and there is a definite difference in size and softness. The one on her shoulder used to feel like a softball and people would freak out when they felt it, but several people familiar with her think it feels smaller, softer, and more pliable. The one on her leg felt like a large marble but is now softer and smaller. The rib cage lipoma feels very loose and fluid now. I don’t think they will dissolve completely, but as long as they are not getting bigger, I’m happy.”

Gomeopatiya
Although homeopathy is often recommended as a support therapy for lipomas, many veterinary homeopaths report little or no success with homeopathy as a stand-alone treatment for fatty tumors.

Dr. Judith Herman in Augusta, Maine, is a veterinary homeopath, former president of the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy, and chair of its certification committee. Classically trained homeopaths such as Dr. Herman use single remedies (not combinations) in response to their patients’ specific symptoms. “The correct remedy is the one that matches the patient’s whole picture,” says Dr. Herman. “Lipomas are part of the chronic disease picture, not single entities.”

In 2004, Dr. Herman treated Anna, a 1-year-old Golden Retriever, for masticatory muscle myositis, an inflammatory muscle disease that produces jaw pain or an inability to open the jaw. At the time, Anna was eating grocery store kibble and taking prednisone. “Because she had diarrhea and her owners weren’t ready to forego allopathic treatment,” she says, “I suggested changing her food to a raw, home-prepared diet.”

Prednisone was discontinued after symptoms resolved, but when they returned, Dr. Herman treated Anna homeopathically. Within two months, her mouth functioned normally, but Anna later returned with a soft lump on her chest, which was diagnosed as a lipoma, and she again showed mild signs of myositis. She received the same homeopathic remedy as before but at a higher potency. One month later her mouth was back to normal and the lipoma had disappeared.

“Anna has had normal yearly visits since then without any sign of illness,” says Dr. Herman. “In 2010 she developed a yeast infection in her ears and I treated her with the same remedy as in 2004 because her symptom picture still matched the remedy. Her ears were fine within a month, and she is still doing well.”

Stephen Blake, DVM, of San Diego, California, reports, “I had a case at a no-kill shelter where an 8-year-old Shepherd-mix had a lipoma almost the size of a basketball on his back, hanging over his side. It was so big that the dog had problems running. I treated him once with homeopathic Thuja 10M and within a month it dissolved. After two months all that was left was a large sack of skin hanging on the dog’s back.

“My reasoning for prescribing the Thuja was the fact that he had been vaccinated prior to the appearance of the lipoma. Homeopathic Thuja is a good choice in cases like this, where a lipoma appears after a vaccination.”

Aromaterapiya
Aromatherapy’s essential oils may help lipomas in some cases. Dr. Blake says, “As part of the healing protocol for all tumors, I use a combination of frankincense (Boswellia spp.), sandalwood (Santalum album), and Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) to aid the body in its detoxification and healing process. I have the owner massage a small amount of these oils into the tumor daily until the body has no need for it.”

Canine aromatherapist Frances Fitzgerald Cleveland of Littleton, Colorado, uses full-strength grapefruit essential oil (Citrus x paradise), which is not a distilled essential oil but rather cold-pressed from the peel of fresh fruit. “This is a very cooling, cleansing, and decongesting oil, like lemon,” she says. “Grapefruit oil helps the body eliminate excess fluids and break down fats, plus it promotes a lightness of spirit. It is my first choice when working with lipomas. I find it aids in clearing the lymphatic system, helps with congestion of the skin, and is a tonic to the system. I have used it on two of my dogs with great success in keeping their existing lipomas from getting any larger and shrinking some to a smaller size.

Essential oils are usually diluted before being applied to dogs, but one or two drops of therapeutic-quality frankincense or grapefruit essential oil can safely be applied to an adult dog’s lipoma once or twice per day.

No Treatment Needed
While lipomas can be unsightly, they are generally harmless and rarely cause problems.
