Curcumin, the essential ingredient in the yellow root or spice Turmeric, is widely known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. But this humble spice may have some surprising health benefits for dogs too. Turmeric is widely understood to help with pain relief from arthritis and joint pain. It is a popular natural remedy for managing stiff joints, for both humans and for dogs, cats, and horses.
What are the Wellness Benefits of Turmeric for Dogs?
One of the primary uses for turmeric for dogs in Australia is for its potential anti-inflammatory and natural pain relieving properties for joint pain and arthritis in dogs. Osteoarthritis, also referred to as Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD), is a progressively worsening inflammation of the joint caused by the deterioration of cartilage. In cases of osteoarthritis, healthy cartilage begins to break down, due to contributing factors such as age, injury, repetitive stress, or disease.
Mixing turmeric in your dog’s wet food may promote increased mobility and mental wellbeing through potential pain relief. Turmeric is not water-soluble; it is fat-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.
Is Turmeric an Alternative for Steroids?
Crooked Lane’s Turmeric Powder is a completely natural raw product containing a minimum of 5% curcumin. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin has resulted in research of turmeric as an alternative to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications.
Research suggests that turmeric may be beneficial to help reduce inflammation, manage pain and boost immunity and antibody functions. Whilst more research is still needed on turmeric and its effect on dogs, it is encouraging to note that natural turmeric does not appear to cause serious side effects if consumed in low or moderate amounts.
