My boxer has a lipoma on her thigh, about the size of a golf ball. She has mild aortic stenosis and is ten years old. We consulted with a vet about having it surgically removed, however, she would need an ultrasound on her heart to determine if she can handle the anesthesia. The total cost would be about $1,000 for the ultrasound and surgery. The lipoma also has a mole on it and the skin is tight and losing hair on it. Has anyone had any success using tumeric to shrink a lipoma on their boxer.
