What Is a Mast Cell Tumor in Dogs?

A mast cell tumor (also called mastocytomas or mast cell sarcomas) in dogs is most commonly found in the skin or subcutaneous tissue. Mast cells are a type of white blood cell that contain the histamine, heparin and enzymes involved in allergic reactions. Mast cells are a part of your pet's immune system and protect against parasitic invaders. Mast cell tumors are the most common skin tumors in dogs, accounting for nearly 20% of all skin tumors. While MCTs are primarily a skin cancer in dogs, they can metastasize to lymph nodes and other organs.

Mast Cell Tumor Dog Symptoms

Canine mast cell tumors are the most common form of skin cancer in dogs. Mast cell tumors can be found in any breed of dog but are most commonly found in Boston terriers, English bulldogs, Weimaraners, golden retrievers, pugs, beagles and boxers. Mast cell tumors can be frequently overlooked, as they might just appear as a skin tag or small bump. They may also appear to be red, ulcerated or swollen. Although some canine mast cell tumors are benign, most are malignant. Because they can look like all kinds of inflammatory lesions, pet owners may not notice them, and they can remain on a dog for a long time before they are treated. Please be sure to check your dog regularly for any unusual growths, and bring any lumps or bumps to the attention of your veterinarian, because early treatment will yield a much better outcome.

Mast cell tumors in dogs can be found on the limbs, in between toes and in the spleen, liver and bone marrow. Both normal and cancerous mast cells contain chemicals that can be released into surrounding tissues. A degranulation, the release of histamine and other chemical compounds into the bloodstream, can occur spontaneously or when a tumor is agitated. These compounds can pass into the stomach and intestines and cause ulcers, which may result in digestive problems (vomiting, lethargy, loss of appetite and black, tarry stools). Other symptoms of mast cell tumors in dogs can include skin rashes and shortness of breath.

Diagnosing Mast Cell Tumors in Dogs

Mast cell tumors vary greatly in their size, shape, appearance and texture. An MCT in dogs is typically diagnosed by fine needle aspiration. The only way to definitively identify them is with a biopsy and pathology report, which evaluates them based on location, grade and size. Mast cell tumors are one of the most treatable forms of cancer. Surgery is generally recommended for both low- and high-grade tumors. In most cases of higher-grade tumors, chemotherapy is also recommended.

What Causes Mast Cell Tumors in Dogs?

For most dogs, the underlying cause of a mast cell tumor is unknown. As with most cancers, it is probably due to a number of factors. There are genetic and environmental risk factors. Some dogs have a genetic protein mutation (receptor tyrosine kinase protein) that fuels the progression of mast cells. Mast cell tumors in dogs have a tendency to recur. While there is no cure, MCTs can be managed by using a proactive holistic approach to support your dog's immunity and its ability to fight this type of cancer. The prognosis for dogs with MCTs depends on various factors: the grade of the tumor, its location, whether the MCT has spread and the success of the surgery in completely removing it.

Natural Remedies for Canine Mast Cell Tumors

If your dog is diagnosed with a mast cell tumor, a holistic approach with diet changes and supplements can be used along with conventional treatments prescribed by your veterinarian to support your dog's immune system and prevent recurrence. Ask Ariel has extensive experience helping dogs with mast cell tumors using hypoallergenic, low-carbohydrate diets and natural supplements. The supplements most important for treating mast cell tumors (please see detailed information below) include: AllerEaze, Happy Paws Organic Hemp Extract CBD Oil, Immune Harmony, Amazing Omegas, Curcumin Complex for Pets and Resveratrol for Dogs. These products help control the histamine response, fight cancer and reduce inflammation, which reduces recurrences. Mast cell tumors have a high likelihood of recurring, so it is very important to try to help control recurrences using the appropriate diet and supplement regimen.

AllerEaze - AllerEaze is the first line of defense for dogs with mast cell tumors as it has been scientifically proven to naturally reduce a dog's histamine release. Mast cells are immune cells in the skin that respond to allergies and irritations in the skin. When they begin to multiply abnormally, they form a tumor. Mast cell tumors have high levels of histamine. Any manipulation of the tumor can cause a sudden release of histamine into the bloodstream. Veterinarians prescribe Benadryl to reduce the harmful effects of histamine on the pet. A sudden histamine release can cause swelling, vascular changes and inflammation. Quercetin is often considered nature's Benadryl, as it helps the body cope with the dangerous effects of excess histamine released by cancerous mast cells. AllerEaze can be used in addition to Benadryl to support a healthy immune response. AllerEaze in combination with Power Probiotic has been especially helpful for pets with mast cell tumors.

Power Probiotic - Power Probiotic is the best probiotic for pets! Backed by scientific research, this powerful multi-strain formula promotes the growth of good bacteria, supporting a healthy immune system. Power Probiotic is essential if your pet has taken antibiotics or steroids, which can kill off healthy bacteria, weakening your pet's immune response. Pure, safe and natural, Power Probiotic does not contain any fillers.

Happy Paws Organic Hemp Extract Oil - A few drops of this professional veterinary strength oil can help reduce inflammation and support a healthy immune system. Controlling inflammation is a core part of cancer treatment, and that is the main characteristic of this mast cell tumor dog CBD oil. The ingredients in Happy Paws are being researched for their beneficial effects on cancer. Anecdotal reports include reduced pain, inflammation and discomfort. Each 1oz bottle contains 550mg of full spectrum hemp extract in an unflavored all-natural coconut oil base. 100% organic. Made in the USA.

Immune Harmony - Immune Harmony is a premium-quality, patented blend of plant sterols and antioxidants. It’s the #1 choice for pets with cancer. This unique one-of-a-kind plant sterol supplement is tolerated well by even the smallest pets. This pet vitamin has been successfully used in conjunction with chemotherapy and/or prednisone since 2005. The sterols contained in Immune Harmony have been shown in studies to have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and immunomodulatory properties. No known toxicity has been found. The antioxidants protect the body from free radical damage, along with an essential fatty acid complex that assists in the bioavailability of these health-promoting nutrients. Excellent value: One bottle lasts between two to four months depending upon the weight of your dog.

Curcumin Complex for Pets - Curcumin Complex for Pets contains all three curcuminoids for maximum effectiveness. This science-based antioxidant reduces oxidative damage from free radicals. Curcumin Complex is essential for dogs and cats with cancer, as it supports a healthy immune response, has cancer-fighting properties and provides a critical antioxidant. Curcumin's benefit for cancer patients is being heavily researched, and curcumin may help inhibit cancer tumor growth. Using a combination of Curcumin Complex and Resveratrol for Dogs as a PREVENTATIVE if you have a dog prone to mast cell tumors or cancer is an excellent strategy.

Amazing Omegas for Pets - Amazing Omegas for Pets is absolutely the best fish oil available. It’s packed in glass bottles to prevent leakage of toxins from plastic into the oil. It’s also purified for heavy metals and toxins and manufactured gently so that oils are in a highly bioavailable form, which means increased absorption. Scientific research has shown the benefits of omega 3s for pets with cancer. This supplement helps pets with allergies and skin problems too!

Resveratrol for Dogs - Resveratrol is an exceptional antioxidant, backed by research, and can help your dog in so many ways:

  • Cancer support and preventative (use with dog breeds that have a higher incidence of cancer, such as bichon frises, German shepherds, Labradors, golden retrievers, boxers): Resveratrol for Dogs acts on the process of carcinogenesis by affecting all three phases - tumor initiation, promotion and progression - and suppresses the final steps of carcinogenesis. Resveratrol for Dogs also supports immune function.

  • Cardio-protective (excellent for breeds prone to heart issues, such as Cavalier King Charles spaniels, poodles, dachshunds).

  • Energizing, promotes longevity. Excellent for senior dogs

Boston Terrier With Mast Cell Tumors Is Doing Great Years Later

"My precious Boston Terrier, Marcie had 3 mast cell tumors removed at age 7. One of the tumors had become a grade 2. After reading the pathology report and various other articles, I was terrified of what might happen. MCT is common for Boston Terriers. She's my baby and I will do anything I can to give her the best and all she needs.

I ordered several products from the AskAriel.com website which I have been using for several years now. Other than a couple of changes in protein sources, which is necessary with dogs with serious allergies, my baby is amazing. Everybody that meets her is in awe of her beauty and comment on the glow of her coat which I attribute to Amazing Omegas. They cannot believe that she is nine years old and has puppy energy!

I thank God each day He gives me to love her. Marcie's recent bloodwork results were awesome. I know it would not be possible without Susan's help. I highly recommend her expertise and products." - Kim, Florida

Supplements that have helped Marcie include: Amazing Omegas for Pets, Resveratrol For Dogs, AllerEaze, K9 Digestive Enzymes, and Immune Harmony.

What Is Olive Leaf? An Ancient Healing Herb

Olive Leaf Extract for Pets is a powerful antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal supplement for dogs and cats. It helps to support a healthy immune system. Ask Ariel's Olive Leaf Extract For Pets is helpful in so many ways. It combats yeast and skin infections, fights viral and respiratory infections, helps to maintain urinary tract health, helps pets with autoimmune diseases such as stomatitis, and is beneficial for pets with high blood pressure and diabetes.

Olive leaf has been used as a source of plant medicine for over 3,000 years. The olive tree was cultivated by the ancient Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians for use as medicine and food. Ancient practitioners used olive leaf to fight infection, heal rashes, help with blood conditions, and for general good health. Historically, the olive tree and its branches have been considered a symbol of peace and health.

Olive leaf contains oleuropein, the phenolic compound that is responsible for many of its health benefits. Our Olive Extract for Pets is standardized to contain 20% oleuropein, which means that each capsule is guaranteed to have a significant amount of this powerful compound to ensure its effectiveness. Most comparable pet products contain about 15% oleuropein. Olive Leaf Extract for Pets is also rich in antioxidants - the compounds that can neutralize free radical damage. The leaves contain an antioxidant that is comparable to vitamin E, along with antioxidant flavonoids that help to regulate cellular activity.

Olive Leaf Extract for Pets can help strengthen your pet's immune response to bacteria, viruses and fungi. It promotes a healthier immune reaction to infections of the skin, ear, respiratory system, and urinary tract and chronic viral conditions. When combined with veterinary prescriptions, it can help your dog or cat to recover faster and prevent chronic infections.

Human-Grade Ingredients, Scientifically Proven To Support Healthy Immune System Function

Olive Leaf Extract for Pets is one of the most useful and diverse natural supplements for cats and dogs available. Olive leaf is a potent antimicrobial with antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. It contains protective polyphenols to improve immune function and offer powerful antioxidant protection. Olive Leaf Extract for Pet's active ingredient, oleuropein, helps fight against pathogens while causing no harm to healthy bacteria in your pet's gut and mucous membranes.

Olive leaves contain many beneficial plant compounds, such as tocopherols, flavonoids, and polyphenols. Polyphenols are a group of plant chemicals that have antimicrobial activity against a wide variety of viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi. Scientific research has found that olive leaf extract contains up to 30 different polyphenol compounds that work synergistically to provide exceptional antioxidant and immune-supportive properties. The polyphenol oleuropein has been tested in clinical trials and found to have exceptional combined antibacterial and antifungal action.* It can help to ward off ear infections in dogs and cats, pet urinary tract infections, and dog yeast infections.

The powerful antioxidants and flavonoids in Olive Leaf Extract for Pets can help to minimize free-radical damage to the body and decrease inflammation. Antioxidants can neutralize the free radicals that can damage cells and weaken the immune response. Flavonoids have anti-inflammatory benefits. Decreasing inflammation in your pet's body can help to decrease the symptoms of inflammatory conditions, such as stomatitis or pillow foot, asthma in cats, allergies, skin infections and chronic autoimmune diseases.

Fights Infection: Essential Aid To Manage Skin Conditions & Yeast Infections

Olive Leaf Extract for Pets is especially beneficial for cats and dogs with ear infections, skin infections and yeast overgrowth (tear-stained eyes, ear discharge, cheesy smell, licking groin, yeasty paws). Cats and dogs use their skin to help remove toxins from their bodies. The toxins may be environmental, chemical, produced by the metabolic processes of their body (i.e. cats and dogs with kidney disease may have an ammonia-like smell) or yeast overgrowth from the gastrointestinal tract. When pets have a build up of toxins, it can cause red, itchy, smelly skin and continuous scratching that can lead to skin infections. Conventional veterinary treatments are antibiotics and steroids. The antibiotics can upset the microbiome balance in the gastrointestinal tract by killing off the good "friendly bacteria," which is needed for your pet's immune system, along with the bad bacteria. Steroid medications calm inflammatory response, but they achieve this by pushing the toxins deeper into the body. If your pet does need an antibiotic or steroid, it is very important to use Power Probiotic in conjunction with those medications.

Candida albicans, which causes yeast infections, is classified as both a yeast and a fungus. It may be an underlying cause of allergies, skin and coat problems, ear infections, and digestive sensitivities. Candida albicans, along with a host of other bacteria and fungi, are found in healthy digestive systems. The good bacteria in your pet's GI tract keeps it in check, but the overuse of antibiotics or steroids, diets high in carbohydrates (grains and starches), environmental or food allergies, or stress can cause an overgrowth of yeast. Olive leaf is highly effective in treating many kinds of bacteria and fungus. Research* has found that olive leaf extract is effective against Candida albicans. Use Olive Leaf Extract along with K9 Yeast Defense and Power Probiotic for synergistic treatment of yeast infections in dogs.

"Bruiser had chronic yeast and skin problems. We had been to the veterinarian many times but the problem would just come back. We used Ask Ariel's diet tips and supplements which included Olive Leaf Extract. Bruiser's yeast finally cleared up and I receive many complements on how nice his coat looks. It was the best money I could have spent." - Genette, Hawaii

Powerful Anti-Viral For Chronic Respiratory Conditions

Olive Leaf Extract for Pets is a natural anti-viral supplement that is helpful for cats and dogs with respiratory conditions including asthma, chronic upper respiratory infections (URIs), allergies, and chronic bronchitis. It's anti-viral properties make it an ideal supplement for cats with viral conditions such as feline leukemia (FeLV), feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV or feline AIDS), feline herpes (FHV-1), and calicivirus. Olive leaf extract has been researched for its antimicrobial activity against multiple types of bacteria and fungi that can cause respiratory infections. The research* indicates that olive leaf inhibited the growth and spread of all tested pathogens. Olive leaf extract can interfere with the amino acid production that is critical for viral replication. It can penetrate infected cells, prevent spreading and potentially destroy the virus**. Olive leaf extract has been used as an adjunct veterinary treatment for feline leukemia virus (FeLV), feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline herpes (FHV-1).

Supports Urinary Tract Health

Olive Leaf Extract for Pets is effective in treating dog or cat urinary tract infections (UTIs) because of its antibacterial activity against specific pathogens. The urinary tract is naturally resistant to bacteria. As urine passes through, it kills much of the harmful bacteria in the tissue membranes, but there is always the risk of infection. The most common pathogens in pet urinary tract infections are Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, and Pseudomonas spp. Scientific research studies have shown olive leaf extract to be successful in eliminating Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, and Streptococcus pathogens.*

UTIs can be very painful for your pets. They can cause frequent and difficult urination, blood in the urine, smelly urine, and genital licking. Urinary tract infections in cats and dogs may be caused by bacteria from dirt or feces, a weakened immune system, or chronic antibiotic use. Unfortunately, some pets are more susceptible to repeat UTIs. Olive Leaf Extract combined with Power Probiotic can help to prevent the cycle of reinfection.

Helps Reduce Blood Pressure

Olive Leaf Extract for Pets may help support healthy cardiovascular function and reduce blood pressure in your cat or dog. The oleuropein in olive leaf extract helps to produce nitrogen oxide which helps the blood vessels to relax*. This helps to maintain healthy blood pressure and blood flow.

Anti-Hyperglycemic Herb

Olive Leaf Extract For Pets can be used along with veterinary prescriptions to help support blood sugar and insulin levels in dogs and cats with diabetes. Olive leaf has been used to treat blood sugar issues for hundreds of years. Research has shown that the polyphenols in olive leaf can increase insulin sensitivity and increase insulin production in the pancreas, helping the body to better metabolize sugar. Scientific research* showed that animals treated with olive leaf extract had increased insulin levels and reduced blood glucose levels.

Digestive System Support

Olive Leaf Extract for Pets can help to improve digestion by preventing infections and irritations in the digestive tract. It has also been shown to be effective in treating various types of intestinal parasites, including giardia and worms. Its antimicrobial properties are effective against Campylobacter jejuni and Helicobacter pylori*.
