Dog's Naturally Golden Paste for Healing Recipe by Dr Dana Scott
We love this recipe and additional information put out by Dog's Naturally. Turmeric Is Anti-Inflammatory and has many health properties.
You may be thinking inflammation is only a problem for dogs with joint disease … but chronic, hidden inflammation is a silent killer. It’s the root of nearly all disease.
Cancer, arthritis, allergies, kidney disease, dental disease, digestive disease … are all caused by inflammation. Not all inflammation in the body is a bad thing.
If your dog is exposed to viruses or bacteria, acute inflammation will release white blood cells to the body tissues and start the healing process.
But chronic inflammation,the kind of low-grade inflammation that stays for weeks, months and even years … is the true cause of most degenerative and inflammatory health issues in your dog.
Potential Turmeric Side Effects
The best thing about turmeric is that it works and it’s safe.
But not all dogs should get turmeric. Turmeric is a “warming” spice, so if your dog is always hot and seeking out cool floors to lie on, turmeric may not be for him. Turmeric can interact with some medications, including anti-inflammatory and diabetes drugs. And it may interfere with some chemotherapy treatments. So if your dog is on any medications, check with your holistic vet before adding turmeric to his diet.
Chances are, it will only help but it’s always best to check. Turmeric is also contraindicated for patients with bile tract obstruction or gallstones.
