I am treating a 95 pound dog who has hip and shoulder dysplasia. Would turmeric and black pepper be recommended? How often and how much? What tricks do you use to get herbs down dogs who are picky?

For our ageing German Shepherd, we give her every day a tablet of Ester C (500 mg), a good fish oil, glucosamine-chondroitin, and Rimidyl which is a prescription med. We also put a teaspoon of turmeric powder, 5 shakes of black pepper and a half teaspoon of coconut oil on her food.

When we rescued her, she was 18 months old and already manifesting signs of moderate hip dysplasia. The vet took x rays and said she would probably be totally disabled in another year and a half and need to be put down. With this regimen, plus lots of walking, we have been able to enjoy her for many years. She will be 11 in April this next year. She's a little gimpy, but still loves her walks and has glossy fur and bright shiny eyes. The turmeric makes a big difference when given with the black pepper and coconut oil. Good luck!

Turmeric and pepper are great especially combined with Boswellia. If it were my dog, I'd do this:
