Arthritis, Tumors

My dogs both have conditions that I felt would be helped by the addition of tumeric. After much research, this is what I settled on. One dog is 85 pounds, the other is 45. I'll include dosages so you can convert to your pet's weight. My larger dog (10 years old) has benign tumors, arthritis, and hip dysplasia. My younger one (8 years) has the beginnings of a fatty lump, and what is probably a sebaceous adenoma. Treatment began two days ago and I feel both dogs are beginning to improve. I will update as time goes by, and if I remember to I'll take photos.

Recipe: Tumeric "Golden Paste" (there are other recipes if you want to research.)

1 cup water, plus 1/2 cup organic tumeric, mix both together in saucepan on LOW heat, minimum 7 minutes. Do NOT boil or burn, so stir.

Add 1/3 cup organic coconut oil. Can substitute almost any healthy fatty oil available.

Add 2-3 tsp ground black pepper. I cook an additional everything together one minute, then let it cool. Keeps 2 weeks in fridge, few months in freezer.

Now, dosages. 40lb dog= 1/8 tsp, gradually increase to 1/4 tsp. 80lb dog=1/4 tsp increasing to 1/2 tsp. This is PER DOSE, not per day. I give twice daily. You can start your dog more gradually then this if you think there'll be issues. I feed with meals so it's easier on their stomachs.

FEEDING...depends on your dog. I've one that'll take a frozen 1/4 tsp 'blob' of paste and just eat it out of my hand. ;) My other one needs his mixed into something. Generally I grab some cottage cheese, or broth and mix it with his paste into his food to kinda hide the taste a bit. Use whatever your dog likes.

I've seen a definite improvement in arthritis, and am expecting it to also help the tumors. I'm debating adding blue kote and castor oil to the tumors, but I'm holding off on those for now. I'll update when I think of it. Good luck to all and blessings to your beloved pets. :)
