As you may know, I have a senior dog. Peanut is 11 years old and with that comes some health issues like arthritis. I make Turmeric Bombs to put in Peanut’s food each day. It is a very simple recipe that I make ahead and freeze. Turmeric has been shown to help with inflammatory diseases like arthritis. It has also been shown to reduce the size of tumors. There is a terrific article on PlanetPaws.com here with the recipe.
I give Peanut about 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric paste with each meal. I don’t give it to the other dogs right now, mostly because they don’t like the taste of it. I don’t either, which is why I freeze it so I can pop it like a pill. I also freeze it because I can’t use it up quickly enough.
