Dig no further! We've found the gold!

All the expert latte drinkers out there will be familiar with this golden powder! While we don't suggest your dog becomes a hipster (although we like the idea of dogs wearing flannelette and styled fur), you can certainly use this new craze to your (dog's) advantage.

Turmeric, or more specifically the curcumin in turmeric powder, has fantastic anti-inflammatory properties, fights bacteria and promotes gastrointestinal health. Inflammation=cancer so you've guessed it, using turmeric will help fight cancer. According to the Veterinary Cancer Society, cancer has become the leading cause of death in dogs over 10 years of age.

Let's start introducing this golden powder into our dog's diet sooner rather than later.

Turmeric paste recipe

A small amount goes a long way

The recommended amount is 1/4 teaspoon at every meal. If your dog reacts well to the turmeric paste, you can increase to 1/2 tsp per meal.

We use turmeric powder in our Grub Boost Powder (a natural supplement) along with other superfoods as we believe it helps support a healthy life!

Note: turmeric paste is not recommended for dogs on blood thinners.

"I will have a latte grande please!"

Want to give your dog the full barista experience? Make a turmeric latte or "golden milk" by mixing the recommended amount of turmeric powder in goat's milk (do not use cow's milk).
