Effects of Curcumin on Osteoarthritis in Dogs

Dogs are commonly given a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) to reduce the pain and inflammation of arthritis. Dogs treated with curcumin at a dose of 4 mg per kilogram twice a day showed that curcumin essentially mimicked the anti-inflammatory and immune response activity of  the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug used in the study.  

Studies “suggest that any time one of our dogs is diagnosed with a soft tissue injury such as a sprain or strain, or with arthritis, we should consider curcumin as an adjunctive therapy.

“• May cause an upset stomach, flatulence and yellowing of the stool, so use caution if your dog suffers from a gastrointestinal disorder or nausea due to chemotherapy.
• Curcumin may also increase the risk of bleeding when given in combination with some medications such as NSAIDs, blood thinners and antiplatelet drugs or when given with certain foods such as botanicals, Gingko biloba, garlic and saw palmetto.
• If your dog is on chemotherapy, curcumin can decrease the effectiveness of certain chemotherapy drugs
• It is poorly absorbed across the GI tract and it is rapidly cleared from the blood. To overcome these hurdles, we advise giving your dog a high quality curcumin supplement in conjunction with a fatty food such as olive oil or fish oil, which can increase its absorption.”

Improving Dogs’ Arthritis Pain With Diet






In Dr. Shelton's veterinary work, she routinely uses Any-Itis for animals who would benefit from improved joint function and movement, are sore due to hunting, competition, or athletic exertion, and so much more!*  Any-Itis (NEAT, RTU, & LITE) has been safely used alongside all veterinary medications and protocols - and can be used long-term when needed.

“Dogs:  For most dogs Any-Itis NEAT will be used orally - added to meals twice a day.  For topical use, we recommend Any-Itis RTU or New Mobility RTU.  Any-Itis NEAT is far too strong for topical applications.  In general, when topical applications are desired - New Mobility RTU should be selected.”

“For smaller dogs (under 35 pounds), the use of Any-Itis RTU or LITE (see below) is often preferred for ingestion. When adding Any-Itis NEAT to foods, keep in mind that some dogs may not be fond of the taste.  For every 50 pounds of body weight, 1-3 drops of Any-Itis NEAT can be added to foods (we recommend softened and wet foods) and fed twice a day.  Start with small amounts, and gradually build up to the desired amount.  Long term use can be utilized when needed.  This is a wonderful blend for dogs with joint and back discomfort or other chronic musculoskeletal issues.  The ideal route is ingestion - and you may find that diluting the Any-Itis NEAT within Fish Oils, Raw Coconut Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil, or other fatty oils or food mixtures that you add into your dogs' diet - will help dissipate any intense peppermint taste resulting from a single drop landing in your dogs' food."

“Cats:  We recommend the use of KittyBoost for felines.  All of the oils within Any-Itis are within KittyBoost in the proper concentrations for cats.  When they groom - they will get their ideal dosing.  If they are too sore or sick to groom - topical applications as well as inhalation will still be effective for them!”
