Overall health and vitally of a canine companion is extremely important to all pet parents. There are some wonderful natural herbal supplements that can help achieve this. Turmeric for dogs is among these.

Turmeric (Latin name Curcuma longa) is a spice and a herb that has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic (5000 year old holistic health system from India) and Chines medicine. Curcuma longa belongs to the ginger family (Zingiberaceae). Turmeric has a distinct yellow color, it is traditionally used as spice in Indian cooking and is also used to enhance the color of mustard in western countries. It is considered to be a super food, and one that can be used for your dog.

61 - 75 lb = 2.5 ml

Over 75 lb = 3.0 ml

The active compound in turmeric is curcumin. Studies have shown turmeric to be an excellent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, anticoagulant, antiseptic, astringent, helps with liver function, bile production and externally for wound healing. Turmeric is beneficial for arthritic conditions in dogs due to the anti-inflammatory properties and is COX2 inhibitors.

You can use turmeric for your dog as anticancer support due to its antioxidant properties. Use of turmeric extracts in a pets daily diet may help scavenge free radicals, increase antioxidant enzymes, and inhibit lipid peroxidation. Epidemiological studies have linked the frequent use of turmeric to lower rates of mammary, lung and colon and liver cancers; laboratory experiments have shown curcumin can prevent tumors from forming.

The healing properties of curcumin may also be beneficial for dog with autoimmune diseases, liver disorders ( increases detoxification of the liver) and heart and circulatory support. Turmeric helps lower the bad cholesterol (LDL), which dog can have and also helps reduce the risk of blood clotting.

I recommend NHV. Customer service always helpful and nice. First product which I bought was a Milk Thistle which I am using monthly for 8 days to detox my dog. Then I bought Turmeric and bone broth using daily to help with my dog back leg tendon stiffness which he has at least few times at week usually when he-ran a lot or after sleeping and using for overall good health.Seems helps cause, I am in use off second bottle of Turmeric and I didn’t notice any stiffness. Next products I bought Inulin-Pk and Mouth drops I just bought them a week ago its hard to say but Knowing other products I am sure they will. Overall I am happy and glad I found products that can keep my dog healthy and free off chemicals. *

My chihuahua, Bella has made a huge turn around! I have changed her diet and added the hearty heart, turmeric, and pet omega supplements. Prior to, she was tired and uninterested. After having her on this regimen for about 2-3 weeks, she has energy, and wants to play and go on walks again!! I am so grateful I found these products! *

This is 15 year old Ray Ray. He has been taking Old Timer for over a year. It improved his arthritis so much! He just had some kind of episode and we went to the vet. He checked out ok, but she said his gums were a little inflamed. He is always having sinus problems. So I came home and looked in your site and decided to order the turmeric. Again we have seen such a great improvement in him. He has stopped licking his nose constantly and his overall vitality has improved. Even my husband noticed the improvement. I can’t recommend your products enough! Good stuff! Thank you! *

NHV products brought joy back into our lives. My sweet 12 year old dog was suffering from back pain. Massage and prescription anti-inflammatories would help some but she could only go on short walks to avoid terrible back pain later. I started giving her NHV's Old Timer and Turmeric and a couple weeks after being on it I noticed she was taking the stairs easier and able to go on longer walks! What is amazing too about these products is I can pour the right into her food and she will eat them right up. She usually knows when I'm trying to sneak something healthy into her dinner. Thank you NHV for helping my dog enjoy life again! *

I have given my 12 year old mixed breed dogs the milk thistle and tumeric supplement because of the on going pain meds they take for arthritis, a thyroid condition and 2 bad knees between the 2 of them. They seem to be better and I am thrilled. I would definitely recommend these products. I was most impressed with the compassionate customer service. *

Two of my dogs are now taking different supplements for different reasons that were recommended from NHV and they are awesome! No more limping for Ozzy. He's taking "Old Timer & Tumeric" and my dog Marley is taking "Mellit & Tripsy". He hasn't had any bouts of his pancreas or kidney problems since starting this regimen. I couldn't be happier! *

With God's help, I truly believe that the products have helped her quite a bit. I'm so thankful that there is a company, such as NHV, that takes such a special interest in our precious little pets. Thank you in NHV! *

I have had Arson on Turmeric, Milk Thistle and Yucca for his after spinal surgery care to get him off of prescrip. meds. This has worked wonders for old Mr. Arson. The prescrip. meds were causing problems with his intestinal tract and that was not a pretty sight. Now he is "going" like a pro! And he acts like a puppy most days so we are all happy. *

My Scottish Terrier was diagnosed with Lymphoma at the age of eight. After a lot of research and careful consideration we decided to treat with Chemo. I have been supplementing with the NHV Lymphoma Gold package, along with Turmeric and natures Immnuno. I was told by my Vet his remission could last for six months. Only 2% of dogs never get the cancer back. I give my dog these supplements twice a day. He loves it on his food. We hope that by using these products... He can be one of the 2%. *

Over a year ago my Female Dachshund was diagnosed with an enlarged Heart, congestive heart failure, a heart murmur, fluid in the lungs and high blood pressure. My Vet recommended Hearty Heart for her and it's been a life saver!! I started using NHV's Turmeric and Hearty Heart combo together a few months ago which has greatly helped to reduce her diarretic medication with regard to the fluid in her lungs and the high blood pressure. Only wish it was cheaper but she really needs it. I love my Tinkerbell *

Elizabeth - Reno, Nevada | February 28, 2017

I have a 16 year old shitsu, lasa mix and she is very much an important family member. Lately she has had some kind of syncope or seizure activity as diagnosed by a vet. (Both are so close in symptoms that is is unknown without hundreds of dollars in tests on the heart and brain to "maybe" find out which one is effecting her) She does have a heart murmur but blood tests and a urinalysis find all the other organs are in perfect working order. I started her on the turmeric because of its healing properties, and knock on wood, she has not had anymore episodes. I am a fan! *

I love the NHV products. The Old Timer and Yucca were very helpful for my elderly collie's arthritis. I am currently using Tripsy, Milk Thistle, and Turmeric for my cat's renal issues. I believe that Tripsy along with sub q fluids have really kept my kitty alive and acting like he has no problems at all. *

My cat Mr. Raoul, is 19 years old. Vet diagnosed him with hyperthyroidism, and gave some meds that he would throw-up. He was very thin with no appetite. Started giving him a full dropper of your supplements every morning. He is now eating and seems to be responding. I realize that at his age he doesn't have a lot of time left on earth. However, I want him to be comfortable till the end. This product seems to be helping. *

My dog had diarrhea for over a month. The vet had recommended we put her down before Christmas and we refused so they wouldn't treat her. We ordered the plantaeris and it cleared up in three doses. The best and healthiest bowel movement she had had in months. We also have another dogs who has kidney disease and lymphangtasia and we did not put her down and started her on Tripsy, Milk Thistle and Turmeric. It is six weeks later and she is like a brand new dog. Healthy, active, hungry and just happy. When she started these liquids she was not doing well and I know it was the NHV products that helped. *

Kathy & Ike - Sequim, Washington | January 18, 2017

Ike is a 100% Raw fed Yellow Lab who had TPLO surgery 3yrs ago. I wanted to add supplements to his diet that would help reduce his need for Nsaid medication. I worked long distance with Donna M. Raditic, D.V.M, C.V.A U of Tenn. to develop a diet that worked best for Ike's needs. Dr R highly recommended NHV supplements. I started with the Detox formula followed by Milk Thistle to cleanse Ike liver from any damage from all meds following his surgery. with a lengthy recoup time. I introduced STIMMUNE to boost his immune system since Ike seems to have a sensitivity to Gluten. Currently we are alternating between TURMERIC & OLD TIMER to assist his joints. When he over does it-(Ike was a Greyhound in his former life-) I add YUCCA into his daily supplements. I see a big difference in his recovery rate. I prefer the ease of adding a liquid herbal that is easy to dose and is well tolerated by my Lab. I'm particular about the supplements I use and I'm pleased that NHV products maintain high standards . I'm so happy that I was referred to NHV . Ike is now 6 and I expect will have many more years of running through the woods. I plan on continuing with NHV products for life. *

Cindy T - Sale Creek | January 10, 2017

I literally stumbled across NHV pet products while searching for something to help our dog with her elevated liver enzymes. Heidi had been on [*pharmaceutical name removed] off & on for years but we never saw any significant improvement. After her reaction to her rabies shot in May 2015 and all the meds she had been placed on to save her, her ALP was off the charts (>993) & [*pharmaceutical name removed] was not helping bring the number down at all. Since immune-mediated Thrombocytopenia will apparently resurface from time to time, Heidi gets placed back on [*pharmaceutical name removed] (used in place of steroids) to get her body to stop attacking itself & build her platelet count back up. These flair ups also wreak havoc on her liver & [*pharmaceutical name removed] was not helping. I had read about milk thistle & dandelion root tea and was trying to educate myself further when I noticed an ad for NHV products. Upon investigating the website further, I had some questions. I decided to "chat" with an agent (Robbie) & became so impressed with the customer service as well as the willingness to investigate what meds Heidi was on to be sure their would not be any problems that I placed my order that night! We decided to go with the Liver Detox kit of Milk Thistle & Tumeric & was not sure what to expect as Heidi's next recheck for her liver was in just 16 days. Her numbers prior to placing her on NHV & while on [*pharmaceutical name removed] for a Thrombocytopenia flair up as well as [*pharmaceutical name removed] at the end of September were ALT 169, ALP >993; at the end of October while weaning off [*pharmaceutical name removed] (1 pill every other day for 1 month) & still on [*pharmaceutical name removed] her numbers were ALT 269, ALP >993; on November 28th after ending her 3 day wean off of [*pharmaceutical name removed] on November 14th & starting her NHV supplements of Milk Thistle & Tumeric (instead of [*pharmaceutical name removed]) on November 12th (just 16 days) Heidi's numbers were ALT 141, ALP >993. Or vet said to keep doing what we were doing as her highest concern had been the ALT & it was almost down to high normal & we would recheck in January. We had the recheck 1/9/17 & her numbers are now ALT 88; ALP 802!! Granted the ALP is still very high but they have been over 700 since September 2013. She has had a negative Cushing's test, a liver ultrasound (during her hospitalization with Thrombocytopenia) and they could not find anything. We will not recheck her liver for 3 months but unfortunately we are back on [*pharmaceutical name removed] again for a flair up of Thrombocytopenia so I am now looking to NHV for immune support. I included more information here than some might need but I wanted to be sure since the [*pharmaceutical name removed] would be driving up Heidi's liver enzymes, I was able to show how great the products work. Not only that, they ARE NOT alcohol based supplements! The customer support has helped me so much as my other little dog is able to take these same supplements with all of his other medications for heart murmur & trachea collapse. They were very honest to let me know which he could & could not take with his prescribed medications, that meant the world to me! *

My dog has allergies and constantly itches and within a week of using the turmeric he started to itch less and less. At this point it's been a month and he hardly has any issues, even the red blotchy skin irritation is gone😊 We also use some of their other products. *
