Is Your Pet Dealing With Arthritis? Needing An Anti-Inflammatory?

Known for its many medicinal uses in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic medicine, Turmeric inhibits leukotriene development and hinders platelet aggregating inflammation (Srimal, 1973.) Alternative medicine folklore says Turmeric can be given to animals to help ease arthritis symptoms. Turmeric can upset your pet’s stomach. So, go easy in your dosage and consider adding ginger with it. Ponder adding Turmeric to your pet’s diet with dried herbs, decoctions, or tinctures.
