Description

Turmeric has been proven to either effectively eliminate the need for, or enhance the effects of many conventional medications. There are many reasons to add turmeric to your dog’s diet. From treating arthritis to fighting inflammation. Turmeric is an extremely important little spice that may just make a world of difference for your dog.

What is Curcumin

Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric. It is found in the roots and bulbs of the Curcuma longa plant. We’ve learned quite a bit about this primary active ingredient from the 6,000+ published studies on turmeric. Curcumin has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and anticancer properties.

In fact, because of its incredible healing potential, curcumin earned the nickname, “cure-cumin” in one study at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas.

Furthermore, while curcumin is extremely powerful in treating existing ailments, it is also important in preventive medicine to ward off the onset of various diseases and ailments in the first place.

What is Turmeric Good For?

The health benefits of turmeric are very impressive. Turmeric root can help fight diseases like arthritis, cancer, diabetes, liver disease, gastrointestinal conditions, and Alzheimer’s Disease (among others). But just how does it compare with conventional medicines? Take a look!

Turmeric as an Anti-Inflammatory for Dogs

Turmeric is an incredibly powerful anti-inflammatory, but what exactly does that mean?

When you think about inflammation, you may consider it to be associated with conditions like joint issues and swelling alone. However, inflammation is at the core of a number of health problems.

In fact, inflammation may cause:

  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Allergies
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Dental disease
  • Digestive diseases

among many others

Not all inflammation is bad. It’s simply the body’s natural response to bacteria, trauma, and toxins, etc. If your dog is exposed to harmful bacteria or experiences something like trauma, blood flow to the affected area would be increased, and an army of white blood cells would be automatically sent to the site of injury or infection. It is this substantial increase in white blood cells to a specific area that is characteristic of inflammation. The initial stages of inflammation, or the acute phase, is also characterized by increased heat, redness, swelling, pain, and loss of function.

However, problems arise when inflammation persists for weeks, months, or even years. This is known as chronic inflammation and is the underlying cause of many diseases.

However, there is good news! Studies have shown that curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) works just as well as conventional anti-inflammatory drugs and can actually outperform both aspirin and ibuprofen in treating individuals with inflammation.

As inflammation is the key factor in most diseases that your dog may face, turmeric can be a remarkable natural remedy.

Antioxidant Properties

Turmeric also has powerful antioxidant properties. By fighting free radicals, antioxidants have the ability to slow aging and degeneration, and can even increase lifespan. While free radicals exist and are naturally formed in the body, they can also develop on exposure to pesticides, processed dog food, chemicals, pollution, radiation, and toxins. Turmeric works to fight off these free radicals and prevent potentially irreversible cell damage.

Turmeric for Arthritis

Because turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, it can effectively treat dogs with arthritis. Turmeric can reduce inflammation, and relieve the pain and stiffness associated with arthritis.

A 2014 comparison study showed that turmeric worked just as well as ibuprofen to reduce pain, yet without the gastrointestinal side effects associated with ibuprofen.

If your dog has arthritis, you know first-hand just how heart-wrenching it can be to see how simple activities can become very painful for them. Adding turmeric to your dog’s diet is a safe, effective way to help them get back on their feet.

Turmeric for Pain

Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory effects also make it great for pain relief. Inflammation typically involves swelling and can make your beloved dog very uncomfortable. Turmeric helps to significantly reduce or even eliminate this discomfort.

Heart Health

Another great feature of turmeric that you certainly won’t find in other NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) is that it promotes heart health. That’s right! Curcumin is actually terrific for dogs who suffer from congestive heart failure. Turmeric is able to lower LDL cholesterol (the bad kind of cholesterol) and reduce the potential for blood clots.

Turmeric for Dogs with Cancer

We know that chronic inflammation can lead to cancer. Curcumin can stop the precancerous changes in your dog’s body from becoming cancer, which makes it a great preventive therapy.

Additionally, The American Cancer Society states that curcumin interferes with cancer cells and their ability to grow and spread. Curcumin is also able to reduce tumor size and actually kill cancer cells!

Nearly half of all adult dogs will be diagnosed with some form of cancer. Turmeric is a great way to stop cancer in its tracks.

Treating Gastrointestinal Disorders

The anti-inflammatory effects of turmeric can effectively treat inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), as well as other gastrointestinal disorders. Turmeric also has positive effects on gut inflammation and gut permeability.

Steroid Replacement

If your dog has joint pain, suffers from allergies, or has a slew of other conditions, your vet may likely recommend a steroid medication. However, like all conventional medications, steroids come with their fair share of adverse reactions. Luckily, studies have found that turmeric is just as effective as conventional steroid medications, but without the potentially harmful adverse effects.

Furthermore, if it is absolutely necessary for your dog to be on a conventional steroid medication, studies have found that taking turmeric along with the steroid can help to reduce the side effects associated with the steroid.

Turmeric for Supporting the Liver

You are probably aware of how vital a fully functioning liver is. The liver plays a paramount role in removing hazardous toxins, regulating the blood, and processing nutrients.

Studies show that turmeric supports liver function by helping to break down fat and remove waste.

Here’s the recommended guideline for dosages: (It can be added directly to their food)

  • Small dogs – start with about 1/4 teaspoon per day
  • Medium dogs – start with 1/2 teaspoon per day
  • Large dogs – start with 3/4 teaspoon per day
  • Giant dogs – start with 1 teaspoon per day
