Turmeric (Curcuma Longa) is a member of the ginger family. Curcumin is a chemical within turmeric spice that is known to reduce swelling and offer natural pain relief for both humans and animals and may help reduce inflammation. If your dog has an ongoing health problem or is slowing down with age, turmeric powder may help to keep them comfortable and active. Here’s what you need to know about turmeric and how it works for dogs, including how long it can take to alleviate painful symptoms.

How to Use Turmeric Powder for Dogs

If your dog is suffering from arthritis or other sources of inflamed joints, turmeric powder added to food may help to provide pain relief in as little as 2-3 days. Remember, noticeable relief may take longer for chronic pain, and it’s important to use pure turmeric without chemical additives. Always follow the recommended dosage as confirmed by your vet. Turmeric is not water soluble. It is recommended to increase bioavailability and absorption to make turmeric into a golden paste by combining turmeric with black pepper and coconut oil, cold pressed olive oil or linseed oil which can then be added to either wet or dry food. Check out our handy recipe under our articles to learn how to make a golden paste for animals.
