And the list seems to go on and on……

How do I feed it to my pet?
The suggested dosage is approximately 15 to 20 mg per pound of body weight in dogs, 150-200mg for cats. A simpler way of looking at it is an 1/8 to a 1/4 teaspoon per day, for every 10lbs of dog weight. Make sure your pet has lots of water to ensure that they don’t get constipated.

Oh and just so you know , the staining power of turmeric is very powerful.Make sure not to touch it to anything you do NOT want yellow/orange for the next few days.

And as always if your pet has a pre -existing medical condition , is currently taking any medications or is pregnant or nursing , it is advisable to consult with your veterinarian before starting anything new
