We have a dog of 7 years that has developed small lipomas in various areas of his body, can you reccomend a diet of food to prevent them from growing or reduce them in size please? Weare willing to make the food at home ourselves or buy in store/online. THanks in advance for your replies.

My last dog had fatty Tumors but you have to watch them & measure them & make sure it’s not growing real quick….. Angie ended up having Mast Cell Tumor & a stupid vet said oh that’s nothing just an old lady wort she’ll be right, one year later she wasn’t her happy playful self, so I took her to a new vet & they rushed her in that morning for surgery & removed every single lump, she looked like a patch quilt after surgery, 2 lumps ended up being Mast Cell Tumours high grade 2 cancer….
here’s a good link & recommends homemade raw fresh whole foods or commercial raw or cooked meal….. http://ottawavalleydogwhisperer.blogspot.com.au/2013/03/fatty-tumors-lipomas-in-dogs-benign.html
I feed kibble Taste Of The Wild Sierra Mountain Roasted Lamb for breakfast & Rissoles Lean Pork Rissoles, Sweet Potato, Pumkin, Broccolli, Zucchini all mashed up for Dinner, the lean pork mince is made into long rissoles & baked in oven & I freeze about 1-2 weeks worth & bring out as needed, same with the sweet potatoes & pumkin, I cook & freeze sections, take out the night before & put in the fridge… I add 1/4 teaspoon DigestaVite Plus powder to balance the meal the DigestVite Plus helps stomach, bowel, skin etc..
If you do feed a kibble make sure the carbs are LOW….. Feed 1 meal raw or cooked & the other meal kibble, I like Canidae Pure Formulas but Canidae was too rich for Patch, he has IBD (Stomach) http://www.canidae.com/dog-food/products
Here’s Dr Judy Morgan site she has easy to cook meals on You Tube, this link has recipes under “Media” some meals are made in a crockpot, 1 meal is a meatloaf, some meals she uses The Honest Kitchen Base Mixes this balances the meal or you can buy her supplements to balance the meals Judy also has a Face Book page & answers any questions you have … http://www.drjudymorgan.com/articles/food-therapy/
Excerpt: “Treating Canine Lipomas”
“Another article in this issue addresses the treatment of a common benign tumor called a lipoma. These are aggregations of fat which typically occur in middle-aged and older dogs. The exact cause is not known. They are more common in certain breeds and possibly in overweight dogs. Research in humans suggests possible genetic risk factors, but the definitive cause is not known. This, of course, provides an open field for rampant speculation of how to treat and prevent these benign tumors”.
PS: Hope this helps, I find the site mentioned to be very informative and helpful, plus, they are not selling anything!
Yes my dog is a Spanador, a mix of Labrador and Cocker Spaniel.
I will check the info you gave me.
