Many times pet guardians may find a lump after their dog's daily grooming sessions or when checking for fleas or ticks. One of the most common lumps are lipomas; these are fatty deposits under the skin. Lipomas are usually benign, they usually are soft and they seem to not cause any particular pain or problems to the dog. In extremely rare cases, lipomas can become cancerous, causing inflammation around the tumor site, and may have the ability to metastasize (spread to other tissues). Fortunately, however, this is rare in dogs, and exceedingly rare in cats.
Sometimes lipomas may grow very large and depending on where they are located, they may cause discomfort and therefore. It is best then to have the lump checked out in order to rule out any possible malignancies such as basal cell tumors, sebaceous adenocarcinoma or mast cell tumors.
Most often vets will recommend surgery as their only course for removing these tumors; many owners are concerned about putting a dog through surgery especially if the pet is middle aged or a senior; and in most cases the tumors grow back. In these cases owners look for alternative treatments.
While a lipoma is not life threatening, it is still a sign that all is NOT well.
When you feel a fatty tumor, it is usually not swollen or painful. They often develop very slowly and grow steadily. They may be the size of a pea or the size of a lemon; they are not terminal but they are a sign that something is wrong.
As the name suggests, the tumor is made of stored fat that couldn't be used or passed out of the body. One of the most common reasons people visit their veterinarian is to examine a mass just below the skin of their dog. If you think something is wrong, you're right! It's just common sense; after all they weren't born with these fatty deposits. Fat is not being metabolized by the body but being stored in pockets under the skin instead. Anything the body can't convert to energy or get rid of, must store somewhere. Development of fatty tumors means there is a problem starting with digestion and assimilation of food.
No! Dogs need fat for energy and brain function. However what type of fat your dog gets makes a huge difference.
With commercial dog foods the most common source of fat is from rejected animal parts. Are these parts rejected because they are past their prime or cancerous? Either way think of rejected as being potentially TOXIC. Obviously this makes for extremely low quality food and coupled with chemical preservatives (also toxins), make a dog's body work overtime until it simply wears out. Even though your dog has appeared to be "healthy" on his lifelong diet, fatty tumors are a result cumulative process.
Some owners have noticed an improvement once switching to a premium kibble or even better to a raw food diet. This may work in some cases since the underlying cause is addressed. When a dog develops a lipoma it is often a sign of the body being unable to get rid of materials as it is supposed to. Therefore, the body is out of balance and the imbalance must be corrected. Switching to raw dog food, human grade homemade dog food or a very high grade commercial dog food can help prevent more fatty tumors from developing and aid in the reduction of the existing tumors.

Tumoxil Should Not Be Used With This Amber Technology Product:
Life Cell Support
Amber Glass Bottles ~ If you have more than one pet that you are treating, you might want to consider purchasing one or more amber glass 1/2 oz., 1 oz., or 4 oz. dropper bottles, so you can split up the tincture into a smaller bottle. That way there is less chance of product contamination.
In addition, when treating more than one pet, it may be necessary to assure sterile administration without carry over from pet to pet. This is very important when using Paxxin to treat some pups and using as a preventative for others. The best way to assure this is to use the dropper only to transfer product to an individual sterile oral syringe, using a different syringe for each pet. (This method will also reduce the chances of product contamination.) Those syringes should be sterilized after each use. Each pet should have its own syringe that is not shared with another pet.
The use of a syringe containing measured drops from the dropper will also remove the risk of the animal biting the glass dropper.
These are terrific for storing dried herbs, tinctures, colloidal silver, etc. All are boston rounds and have black plastic phenolic lids, unless noted. The misters are fabulous and deliver a very light and delicate mist. Excellent for misting the face or for animals who are shy of sprayers. The cute little 1/2 oz. droppers are perfect for splitting 1 oz. tincture bottles into two separate bottles.
Syringes ~ these are luer slip syringes without needles that are excellent for administering measured amounts of Paxxin, CS, tinctures, etc. Reinforced tip, large finger grips, smooth draw and easy-to-read graduations. Rubber plunger with double contact for a positive seal and effortless injection. FDA approved and autoclavable.
If purchasing for use with Paxxin (aka Parvaid), syringe size needed is based on the weight of the puppy. We suggest two syringes, one for oral doses and one for enema doses (if not being given Sub Q fluids or on IV's, enemas are or may be necessary to prevent dehydration). Make sure to mark the enema syringe clearly, as you never want to accidentally use an enema syringe for an oral dose, even after it's been washed, as you can reinfect a puppy with parvo.
Puppies/kittens weighing under 3 pounds need 5 to 6 ml syringes. Animals weighing 3-10 pounds need 12 ml syringes. Puppies weighing 11-20 pounds need 20 ml syringes. Puppies weighing 21-40 pounds need 50 ml syringes. Puppies 41-50 pounds need 60 ml syringes.
