Sebaceous cyst dog treatment at home
Do you feel bumps on your dog’s body?
Do you think it tends to develop cysts easily?
You are worried.
Is a cyst on a dog serious?
It’s not that bad though.
There are remedies to treat a cyst naturally in dogs, manage to dissolve it slowly and make it disappear without any surgical intervention.
Sebaceous cyst on dog
The most common dog cyst is the sebaceous cyst.
A lump forms under the skin or epidermis, near a sebaceous gland.
It shows that a hair follicle, responsible for nourishing your pet’s fur and making it silky, is obstructed.
What causes a cyst?
The follicles release an oily substance to moisturize and protect the hair.
Their role does not stop there since they also protect the skin and reinforce its resistance to infections and allergens.
But these follicles sometimes become blocked by excess sebum, which creates a cyst.
As a rule, they develop slowly without causing major problems.
They are soft to the touch, move easily under the finger and the presence of liquid is detectable under pressure.
Basically, a cyst is a prominence containing an oily fluid that cannot be released.
It is therefore the obstruction of a hair follicle, the reason why it’s named follicular cyst dog.
Sebaceous cyst dog treatment
The goal of this natural treatment is to slowly dissolve this cyst by releasing the duct for the fluid to flow out and eventually resolve it without surgery.
Obtaining a convincing result requires a certain rigor and a fairly substantial duration.
Whatever the cyst, the major care to treat it is the hot compress.
The goal is to apply heat to the surface to increase blood circulation.
This application will soothe the pain, slowly dissolve the cyst and ultimately accelerate its healing by freeing the clogged duct.
To achieve this, heat some water in a kettle, empty it into a bowl and soak a cotton cloth.
Apply it to your hand to check its temperature and assess if it is comfortable for you.
You can then apply it to your dog’s cyst and leave it in place, holding it there for about ten minutes.
Do this application four times a day.
A crucial first step.
Liquid DMSO for dog cyst
DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide) is a natural anti-inflammatory that quickly penetrates the skin and can be absorbed by the cyst.
It can also help open up the inflamed channel to drain what gets stuck.
If you persist, you will heal your dog’s cyst.
This product is actually liquid organic sulfur.
It is very affordable, very effective, and very safe, including for your dog.
To treat it, place three drops directly on the cyst.
Spread the DMSO liquid (#ad) over the entire surface and leave it to act without rinsing.
Make this application twice a day for a minimum of 14 days to determine if the size of the cyst is decreasing.
If the cyst ruptures or opens, a fairly deep wound appears and you must then intervene to prevent infection.
Aloe vera is a very effective anti-inflammatory.
Witch hazel is a very gentle astringent plant that will dry up secretions and therefore stop oozing.
It is also antiseptic and can help ward off secondary bacterial infections.
Soak a cotton ball with the two mixed lotions and apply it gently to the cyst, wiping it carefully.
Do this four times a day for about ten days, you will avoid superinfection.
Castor oil is a very safe natural anti-inflammatory that can be applied topically.
Proven to fight many cysts in humans.
Why wouldn’t it work for the dog?
Apply a few drops of pure, hexane-free castor oil (#ad) to the cyst and spread it over the entire surface.
Do this twice a day until it’s gone.
Combine DMSO following castor oil for optimal effectiveness.
Indeed, DMSO will penetrate the skin bringing with it castor oil, two anti-inflammatories in one application.
Don’t be offended, CBD is also an anti-inflammatory that can be used as a topical solution and can really help shrink a cyst, including in dogs.
CBD or cannabidiol is devoid of THC, the psychoactive substance of cannabis, and therefore has no hallucinogenic effect.
It is also used for dogs and its dosage is generally 3mg per 10 pounds of weight once a day.
The treatment of cysts requires a period of about a month to assess whether the substance really works.
If you don’t want to use it orally, you can apply two or three drops of CBD oil (#ad) directly to the cyst.
You spread it over the entire surface then you follow an application of DMSO to let everything penetrate deep.
How do you get rid of a cyst on a dog?
Dogs are often prone to sebaceous cysts due to their sometimes very dense hair.
They are not very dangerous but constitute a source of pain that can be relieved by natural remedies.
You can thus manage to resorb them before a surgical act is necessary.
Combine the application of hot compresses, DMSO, castor oil, and CBD for a few weeks to observe its evolution.
If it breaks, your dog will be rid of it forever.
All you have to do is treat the wound with witch hazel and aloe vera.
And the famous unsightly cyst will be just an old memory.
