In-Depth Buying Guide: How to Buy the Best Dog Turmeric & Curcumin Treats

Most pet parents want to provide their animals with only the best care. Proper diet and nutrition are important considerations for any responsible owner. People looking for alternative ways to nurture their doggos might have come across turmeric/curcumin in their research. But what are they exactly and why does everyone seem to love them so much?

 

See also:

 

What Is Turmeric?

 

Turmeric is a plant from the ginger family. Its roots are often used for various purposes, including consumption. It usually has a yellow-orange color when it's ground up, and many places feature it in delicious dishes. But it's not just people that can enjoy this plant. Many dogs love and can eat turmeric, too, along with one of its derivatives, curcumin.

Turmeric Health Benefits

Okay, so we know Fido can safely eat this plant. But what are the health benefits of this flowering plant for man's best friend? Well, some research suggests that there are a lot of benefits to eating turmeric/curcumin. Some of these benefits include:

It might have anti-inflammation properties

Yup: Some research has linked curcumin to anti-inflammatory processes. In other words, certain research suggests that curcumin consumption may lead to anti-inflammatory activity[1]. So, doggos with arthritis or other kinds of pain in the hips or joints might find relief with this root. This can help arthritic fur babies feel their best because they can move around during their daily doggy activities in a much more comfortable manner.

 

Chronic inflammation can cause not just long-term discomfort, but may also help lead to other, far more serious, medical complications and conditions. These conditions can include diabetes, among others.[1] (Of course, if your diabetic pooch doesn't like turmeric/curcumin, other types of snacks for him exist.)

 

A safer anti-inflammation alternative for Fido

 

Within moderate amounts, canines can eat this root and its extract safely (excluding allergies). That's why many pet parents give it to their fur babies for inflammation relief. Owners should not give their animals anti-inflammation medications designed for human use. Ibuprofen, for example, is a huge no-no for doggos and puppers. While people can take this medication and be just fine, Fido can't. Complications can include diarrhea and vomiting (no thank you).

Just as powerful as over-the-counter medications?

 

If you weren't already sold on the safety factor, check this out: curcumin might just be more effective at combating inflammation than over-the-counter drugs. Specifically, some research suggests that curcumin-extract can be just as effective at reducing inflammation as ibuprofen[2]. A 2014 study compared Curcuma domestica extracts to ibuprofen in treatment of knee osteoarthritis in humans. Both the extract and ibuprofen had similar treatment success rates. The group taking the extract, however, actually reported fewer gastrointestinal issues than the ibuprofen group did.

 

It's reported to have cancer-fighting properties

 

Fresh root and turmeric powder, Indian spice, healthy seasoning ingredient for the best dog treats.

 

It's not just arthritic doggos that might enjoy some benefits from taking supplements with this root. Curcumin extract, along with proper diet and exercise, might also help pets in the long term have a lower risk of developing certain types of cancer. This is great because plenty of older canines will be diagnosed with some form of cancer. Just add these potential anti-cancer properties to a growing list of positive benefits for your beloved fur baby.

 

Research published in 2015 supports these cancer-fighting properties. The study suggests that curcumin's anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative activities make it potentially useful in partly preventing and treating patients of certain types of cancer[1]. While this study is not conclusive, it is by far not the only one that suggests this extract has potential cancer-fighting benefits.

 


 

Types of Curcumin/Turmeric Dog Treats

 

There are many varieties of turmeric/curcumin canine goodies that are available for purchase on the market in 2019. Those interested in giving turmeric/curcumin to their canine can choose from a wide selection, including:

Standard snacks and supplemental chews

These are simply products that incorporate turmeric/curcumin into their recipe. They're often chewy and small, making them easy morsels to consume. They may also come in fun flavors that many pups love, such as maple bacon. These flavors can make these recipes tastier or more palatable. This way, pet parents may be able to get even the pickiest eaters to enjoy these chews. (Although dog-lovers can also use safe-to-eat peanut butter to coat their pets' vitamins to make them more palatable).

Paste or liquid options

The other common way dogs eat turmeric is through a paste or liquid form. Pastes make it easier to ingest this plant or any of its extracts. Why is this? Well, consumption of the powder alone leads to less absorption. The common manufacturing solution? Companies will often add water to turmeric/curcumin in their products. However, it's also common for manufacturers to make this golden paste with some type of oil, such as coconut or even hemp oil. Those might seem like odd ingredients to make a turmeric paste just for Fido, but there is some reasoning behind why manufacturers include them.

 

Coconut oil and fresh coconuts on old wooden table.

 

Oil made from coconuts in small amounts may be safe for dogs to consume, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC)[3]. Products with this ingredient may help a pooch have healthier or shinier skin and coat. It might even aid canines with arthritis issues as well [3]! Although, consuming too much of it can cause digestive problems and other issues.

 

Composition with hemp oil in bowls on table.

 

People might be alarmed when they see the terms hemp oil or CBD dog treats (CBD meaning cannabidiol) listed in a product's recipe label. To be sure, it's always good to exercise caution when adding new foods or supplements to a doggy diet. So, what do these terms actually mean? THC is the ingredient that will create what is known as a "high." You should not give animals food that contains THC. Hemp oil and CBD products typically contain miniscule amounts of THC or none at all. It's important for people to make sure that hemp and CBD products are legal in their area before purchasing any. (It only takes a few minutes to research these laws and regulations, after all!)

 


 

Homemade Options

Pet parents may shop around and find nothing on the current market to their liking. That's okay! Those who enjoy making goodies at home have options here, too; owners can create their own homemade dog treats with turmeric. Turmeric dog biscuits can be made in the comfort of a personal kitchen using either a powdered form of the plant, an extract like curcumin, or even a turmeric golden paste that dogs will have an easier time digesting and absorbing.

 

A quick search through popular social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest can turn up plenty of make-at-home golden paste recipe options for dogs. Turmeric paste recipes often combine water (about 1 cup of water), some type of turmeric-based powder, black pepper, and coconut oil. Owners should note that these last two ingredients, black pepper especially, can cause digestive issues or other problems for Fido, especially if taken in large amounts. Pet parents should always contact a veterinarian about specific dietary needs and food concerns before feeding a pet something new, especially if made from a household recipe.

 

What should you expect when looking for homemade recipes? Again, Internet searches can turn up healthy dog treat recipes that may include turmeric- or curcumin-based ingredients. Most often, a dog biscuit recipe will be short and simple to follow. Many a recipe require no more than a baking sheet and a few simple ingredients that are thrown together after taking time to preheat the oven. Peanut butter and gluten free options were particularly popular in 2017 and 2018. So, don't worry if baking isn't your thing—there should be something out there for you.

 

Note that many recipes will ask for flour. This is generally fine, but doggos and puppers should only eat goodies made heavily with flour dough once in a blue moon. This is because the largest chunk of a canine diet should be protein-based. Many make grain-free morsels by adding ground flax seed into the mix instead.

 

Furthermore, many a homemade dog treat recipe use peanut butter as one of its ingredients. Pet parents should check that their peanut butter is free of xylitol. According to authorities, this sweetener can be lethal for dogs.

 


 

Other Considerations

It might seem like these kinds of dog treats are perfect. But like anything else, not every snack will work for every animal. Moreover, doggos must consume turmeric in moderation. Dogs Naturally Magazine states that a recommended dose is "15 to 20 mg per pound of body weight per day, or more simply put, 1/8 to 1/4 tsp per day for every 10 lbs in weight." Commercial products should list recommended daily intake based on a dog's size and age.

 

As with any homemade treat, those making their own doggy goodies should be sure that what they add to their pet's snacks are actually safe for their consumption. Storage is also important: a homemade dog biscuit is good to store in an airtight container or specially designed dog treat jar. This can help reduce chances of mold growing on the food. Dog-lovers should make sure that they place snacks in a spot away from where a sneaky pet might swipe an unattended dog biscuits.

 


 

Final Thoughts

 

There's a lot to consider when bringing a dog into a new household. Whether a companion or emotional support animal or guide, a canine can help make any household more loving and welcoming. Diet, exercise, and medical care are all important factors pet parents need to juggle so that their fur babies have the best possible life. When it comes to rewarding Fido with a snack that's both tasty and healthy, some people turn to goodies made with turmeric/curcumin.

 

While no dog treat is perfect, there is plenty of research that suggests these extracts can have potential benefits, including anti-inflammatory properties. This may help arthritic pooches as well as potentially help fight cancer in the long term. With a variety of snacks and flavors available—including plenty a free recipe online—there are plenty of possibilities when it comes to treating man's best friend. They will certainly thank their owners for it!
