Fatty Tumours / Lipomas - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Fatty tumours, or lipomas, may be large or small and can occur anywhere, but are most commonly found in the armpit, side, and abdominal area. Fatty tumours can grow to enormous sizes and because of this sometimes have to be removed. A Lipoma is a benign fatty lump.

They are very common in older, middle-aged dogs. Overweight female dogs are especially prone to developing Lipomas.

Certain dog breeds may be at risk, including, but not limited to: Doberman Pinschers, Schnauzers (miniatures), Labrador Retrievers, and mixed breeds. They can also appear in cats and horses, but not as often. Lipomas are usually just under the skin, but they can be locally invasive, meaning they are meshed with muscle or connective tissue. Lipomas can also have additional blood or connective tissue as part of the growth. These growths can appear anywhere on the body, but they are most frequently located on the belly (mid-chest and down) and upper legs.

Our support mix includes Fenugreek, Agrimony, Dandelion, Violet Leaves, Garlic, Rosehips and Blue Flag as well as the Bach Flowers Wild Rose and Scleranthus. This combination rebalances the metabolism of fats, energises the lymphatic system and assists circulation.
