Dr Andrew Weil Treats His Dog’s Tumor


Dr Weil was given a container of bloodroot paste to experiment with. Here is what happened. This is a similar product to bloodroot salve. 


His Story

“I had to make a decision about veterinary treatment for my dog Coca, a Rhodesian Ridgeback, six years old and in good health except for a growth that had developed near her right shoulder. It started as a black skin tag but had steadily enlarged until it was the size of a marble. It looked like a little black cauliflower. 

The vet told me it should come off. “These things can turn into melanomas, you know.” Taking it off would mean putting the dog under general anaesthesia, which I did not want to do, since it is a risky procedure, more so for dogs than for humans. So I did nothing and the tumor kept growing.

Bloodroot Salve and Capsules.

The Test

Here was a perfect opportunity to test the power of the bloodroot paste (it contained no zinc). I smeared a  thin coating of the paste over the growth every morning for three days. On the fourth day when I called Coca over for the treatment, I was alarmed to see blood running down her side. The tumor had turned grayish and seemed to be separating from the skin. I stopped applying the bloodroot and two days later, the whole tumor, then whitish-grey, dropped off. It left a raw circular area that quickly healed over. 

The Result

The end result was a circular, slightly depressed area of skin with no trace of tumor. The bloodroot had removed it more neatly than I could have done with a scalpel! Hair grew back over the spot, concealing it completely. 

I could not have asked for a better outcome, and the dog showed no signs of discomfort.”

  • Hi! I’m hoping somebody can help me. My precious Boerboel was diagnosed 9 days ago with Osteosarcoma / Bone Cancer in her wrist joint. I have her on 2 potocols – Food grade baking soda and freshly picked aloe which grows wild in my back yard. In the meantime I have ordered her Black Salve Capsules and Amygldalin tablets. I am seriously tempted to try the salve on her wrist bone, but at same time very reluctant. Please can anybody help. It would be so much appreciated.

  • Salve treatments virtually never get infected, because of the strong immune/inflammatory reaction that is caused. Many white blood cells move to the area. Just do your best to keep it clean. You don’t need to worry.

    I am currently using a bloodroot salve on a strange looking bump on my dog’s back. I had the same experience on the third day waking up to blood running down her side. How did you treat the wound – I’m scared it might get infected while it heals up – any thoughts?
