How to apply Tumorid®
Before you start, please prepare these items and have them handy
1. Ruler or caliper
4. If your pet has long hair, a shaver, or hair removal cream.
If your pet has long and thick hair, you will want to cut or shave the surrounding area around the tumor so the bandage will not hurt the pet when you have to remove it.
a) Next, measure the tumor with a ruler or a caliper, and take a picture w/ the measurement device present so you have a base line.
b) Open the box of Tumorid® (dark color salve) and apply a generous amount of the dark-colored salve directly onto the tumor. If you need to use your fingers to apply, wash your hands w/ warm soapy water before and after applying salve.
c) Bandage the tumor for 24 hours.
d) After 24 hours, please remove the bandage. If you should see swelling or discoloration, then the salve is working and you should apply the healing salve (looks like butter) the same way. If you do not see swelling or discoloration, then please repeat step b-c.
The healing salve should be applied for six days. During this time, you may need to re-bandage the tumor two to three times a day. You might see scabbing, bleeding and oozing. All these are signs that the salve is working properly to kill off the tumor's tissues. Change the dressing to keep the tumor area clean.
Make sure your pets do not lick the tumor area. Tumorid® salve can damage the pet's mouth and tongue. If you need to, please make sure you use an E-Collar on your pets to prevent licking.
Once you have finish one week of the salve, if the tumor has not completely disappeared, then re-follow steps A to D again.
