Cyst Support for Dogs and Cats
Cancer isn’t the only cause for lumps and bumps on your furkiddo. For certain breeds of dogs and cats, cysts are very common. Sebaceous cysts can occur in dogs that aren’t bathed regularly. The buildup of dirt, sweat, or dead cells in pores can cause glands to swell or develop a cyst. Most sebaceous cysts go away and heal on their own, but if the problem persists or the bump becomes infected, make an appointment with your vet as soon as possible. These cysts can become tumors and should be biopsied immediately and examined for cancer.
Keep an eye on these kinds of lumps in your cat or dog, and be sure to get them checked by a veterinarian.
- Ulcerated bumps
- Bumps that are getting larger fast
- Lumps that are hard (lumps that are soft and fluid filled can also be a problem)
- A wound that doesn’t heal
- A lump in the lymph nodes

How to Administer
Shake well before use. The easiest method is to use the dropper provided and place the drops into your furkiddo’s food or favorite treat. You can also use the dropper and squirt directly into the side of their mouth (into the cheek pocket). Some pets can be finicky, if this occurs consider hiding the drops in foods that cats and dogs go crazy for like: fish, chicken, yogurt or a favorite treat. At NHV, we really like using bone broth as a topper to be put on top of medication or dry food. Bone broth has a mouth-watering smell that will help encourage your precious pet to eat and get excited about meal time. It’s also rich in nutrients and is made for pets without toxic ingredients like garlic or salt so you know that you’re feeding them something tasty as well as nutritious. You can find recipe ideas for making your own bone broth at home here.
For Best Results
Herbal dietary supplements are beneficial to the health and well-being of your furry companion and are safe for long-term use. Every pet responds to natural herbal supplements differently, therefore it is important to be consistent and administer the drops daily. Supplements generally take two to four weeks to take effect, however this will vary from one animal to the next.
All NHV Natural Pet Products are pure herbal extracts and contain no added artificial additives, preservatives or coloring. Shelf life after opening is 6 months and must be refrigerated after opening.

Are lumps common?
“My cat has lumps!” becomes a more common observation as your pet ages. However, make sure to contact a veterinary professional to confirm whether or not the lumps are cancerous.
Don’t worry, NHV is here to help! Our vet talk post with Dr. Hillary Cook tells you all about Lumps and Bumps on Cats and Dogs.
My dog has lumps under his skin. Is it cancer?
Not always. Lumps can be caused by benign lipomas, sebaceous cysts and adenomas, and skin tags. Make sure to get advice from your local vet and have any lumps checked early on.
Where are lumps most often found?
Lumps can develop in several places. Depending on the location, they can be enlarged lymph nodes or cysts.
Do all lumps need to be removed?
Removal isn’t required in all cases. Talk to your pet’s care team for the best course of action.
Are there any other products you would recommend for a pet with lumps?
Yes. Nature’s Immuno can be taken together with the Lumps Kit to enhance its effectiveness. The medicinal mushrooms in Nature’s Immuno have long been used in Chinese medicine to decrease inflammation, increase metabolism, and re-balance the immune system.
Can I give the ES Clear and Milk Thistle the same time?
Absolutely! All NHV supplements are designed to be used together. When combined, ES Clear and Milk Thistle work together for multiple organ support and to gently detoxify.
Can the Lumps Kit be used for pets other than dogs and cats?
Yes! It sure can. The Lumps kit is safe to use with rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, guinea pigs and other small pets.
