Multiple subcutaneous nodules in a dog

19.8.2022 | Tomas Volfschutz |

12-year-old female dog Beauceron. The primary problem is multiple subcutaneous nodules. They have been treated surgically in the past and so it is known that they are not fatty lumps or cysts, but neoplasms, probably benign. However, due to the high cost and minimal therapeutic usefulness histology was not performed

She is a typical pensioners’ dog, extremely obese. Her obesity resulted in heart problems, due to which the vet refused further operations. According to him, she would not survive the anesthesia. At the start of the treatment, she had three huge lumps the size of, say, closed fists – one in the front of her neck, one on her back behind the nape of her neck, and a third smaller one on her back leg. The lumps were firm but painless. In addition to these, she had many smaller lumps under her skin. Overall, she was low-spirited, apathetic, tired, had problems getting up from lying down. The owner said that sometimes she did not even want to eat anymore!

We started with autopathy from boiled saliva, 5 liters a day, (2,5 minutes water flow under the filter) and gradually increased to the current 5 minutes under the filter (10 liters) a day. A slight improvement in energy and hair quality was noticeable soon after starting the treatment. After about 2 months, the lump on the neck opened up and started oozing out, which then took many weeks. Subsequently, the same thing happened with the lump on the back. It was also interesting how the lump on the neck healed – it was supposed to have been so huge, that it stretched the skin on the neck. The stretched out loose skin created something like a pocket that hung down from the neck. The pocket then dried up and fell off, leaving no scar or stretched skin.

Now after more than half a year of treatment, the Beauceron is a completely different dog. Basically, all the lumps have disappeared, the dog has visibly lost weight, she is much more vital, more alive, she is interested in what is happening around her, she does not pant nearly as much. The only thing that still remains is a large protruding lump on the back leg, which will probably still be resolved – I’m curious myself how it will go.

I describe this case mainly to emphasize what I observe quite often in the treatment of animals with autopathy. Which is that after the start of the treatment, there is a slight improvement, usually in the overall energy… and then nothing seems to happen for a long time (in the described case, it was a good 2 months). Which leads to the owner’s disillusionment and the erroneous abandonment of the treatment or to a change in the form of treatment. It just needs patience and perseverance. The treatment is taking place and is taking place correctly, but we have very limited options to monitor progress with animals, and so it seems to us as if nothing happens.


Webinars introducing to the basics of autopathy are organised in English for international therapists, medical practitioners and persons interested in self-healing.
