Tumeric works great for tumors and Hip D. But it only activates if using it with oil. I use coconut oil. I researched several different websites and have been amazed at the results. 1 tsp each added to my dogs food and on day 3 he was using his back leg again. He is a Lab mix but quit using it for 4 months. He repeatedly injured his hip playing frisbee so we had to stop that activity. Now he plays ball and cant tell anything was ever wrong!
