We often receive questions about whether turmeric is suitable for animals, and we thought we could cover this topic in this weeks blog post.
First we should talk a little about how Arthritis can affect canines.
What is Canine arthritis
Canine arthritis is a condition that occurs in dogs and is characterised by joint pain and inflammation.
As with human arthritis, repeated usage of the joints leads to the cartilage (the soft tissue covering the bones) to degrade and expose the bones to inflammation.
This can be very painful for animals, and dogs in particular tend to develop a stiffness in their legs, limping and visible discomfort getting up or down.
Common remedies to canine arthritis range from physical therapy, painkillers, steroids and even surgery. But for many of us, an all natural remedy is often sought.
This is where Turmeric enters the picture.
