“In December we rescued a puppy named Lincoln. We had only had him a short time when we noticed a small cyst like bump on his leg. As we were going to the vet for his regular shots they did take a look at it and were not concerned as it was small, not deeply rooted and not infected. That was good news. Over the next couple of weeks the little bump grew substantially and was red and sore looking. We went back to the vet and they describe it as a cutaneous mass and where we were given antibiotics. After taking all of the antibiotics is didn’t appear to be getting any better and the vet thought they may have to remove it surgically – not the best news within the first month of having a new puppy!
We posted on a picture on a pet forum to see if others had any thoughts and we received many ideas. This is when a friend (a student of our herb course) suggested that we try an ointment that she made in her herbal medicine class as a topical healer for animals. This Kloss’ Liniment was amazing and in a weeks’ time there was a noticeable difference and in two weeks it was gone! It was so wonderful to have avoided surgery and have such success with a natural product.
