You may have heard of the benefits of turmeric for your dog. If you haven’t, then here are all the amazing benefits of this colourful spice:
- It’s a powerful antioxidant
- It’s a natural and effective anti-inflammatory. It can help prevent and even treat cancer
- It protects the liver from toxins
And much more!
You can add the Golden Paste directly to your dog’s meals by mixing it with some water or kefir. Most dogs don’t mind the taste at all!
The suggested dosage to work up to is approx. 15 to 20 mg per pound* of body weight. An easier way to think about this is 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon per day, for every *10lbs of weight (1/2 – 1 tsp for a *40lbs dog). You can do this over a few weeks. *1 pound = 0.454 kilogram
Small dogs should start with about 1/4 teaspoon per day Medium dogs can start with 1/2 teaspoon per day Large dogs can start with 3/4 teaspoon per day
TIP: Turmeric leaves the body quickly, so it’s best to feed smaller amounts a few times a day
