Turmeric For Dogs: The Benefits

Turmeric For Dogs: The Benefits

When it comes to getting older, our bodies begin to show signs of ageing in more ways than one. From joint aches to muscle spasms, doing what we love can sometimes be a challenge and we search for ways to combat those aches and pains on a daily basis. With endless supplies of rubs, creams ointments and tablets, we explore every option of the need to get our bodies fighting fit and keeping us going all day long.

Our pets are the same. Running around, chasing balls, wonderful walkies and just our dog’s happy, bouncy lifestyle can play a significant role in their health later on in life. Maintaining their joint, bone and muscle health is massively important when, just like us, the golden oldies set in – so do the aches and pains. But there is a solution and one that we stand behind 100%.

Here at the Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we adore anything that gives our dog’s a better life. Used for thousands of years in both humans and animals, Turmeric is the wonder spice that can significantly change those wobbly walks, achy adventures and painful playtimes and get your pooch feeling like they could jump for joy all day long.

So here it is. All the reasons why we love turmeric and the reasons why you should too!

What is Turmeric?

Created from the Turmeric plant, this special spice has been around for thousands of years and used by many for its magical medicinal uses. It has a warm, bitter taste and is often associated with Indian cooking as it is frequently used to flavour or colour curry powders, and is also often used in mustards, butters, and cheeses. But the root of turmeric is also used widely to make medicine.

Commonly used as a remedy for pain and inflammation, such as osteoarthritis, Turmeric has a wide range of medicinal properties, aiding issues in humans  such as hayfever, depression, itching and even heartburn.

How does it work?

As Turmeric is packed with the chemical Curcumin, the combination of Curcumin and other chemicals in the root work on decreasing inflammation in the body. The mixture of all of Turmeric’s fantastic components make it a superb solution for any problems relating to inflammation or pain in the body  - perfect to stop swelling and pain in those niggly joints and muscles.
