Is Tumeric or Curcumin Good for Dogs?

Relieve Allergies and Arthritic PainIf you are not giving your dog curcumin, you are missing an opportunity to treat allergies, arthritic pain and prevent cancer in your dog. This natural product has been extensively researched and the evidence is overwhelming. It works.

What is Curcumin?
Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric or curry seasoning. It is a proven anti-inflammatory substance that decreases joint pain in the same manner as Rimadyl, a popular veterinary arthritis product. It decreases itching for dogs with environmental and food allergies. Curcumin also has cancer fighting activity. Medical data from countries that eat a lot of curry show that these individuals suffer a much lower incidence of colorectal and prostatic cancer than western cultures. It is a common recommended nutritional supplement in holistic veterinary practices.
But the spice, turmeric, is not as effective. Tumeric only contains 2-5% curcumin. It is virtually impossible to add enough turmeric to your dog’s diet to achieve an effective dose. Dogs need a concentrated source of curcumin for maximum effect. Fortunately, these products are available.
If your veterinarian does not have a dose of curcumin for your dog, contact a holistic veterinarian in your area for a consult and proper the dose for your dog. You will be amazed in the difference it makes to their health.
