My vet told me that golden paste doesn’t help because you need high levels of turmeric to actually help so I stopped using it for my Sheltie who has osteosarcoma.

Hi Jacki, thanks for chiming in. Yeah, for many vets there just aren’t enough clinical studies to show it makes a difference. For many integrative vets who are ok with the anecdotal evidence and take the approach that if it doesn’t do any harm and the dog tolerates it, then why not give it a try. So it’s really up to the pet parent and what they are comfortable doing.

I love that you are working with your vet to come up with a plan for your pup. Feel free to start a new topic in Share Your Story so we can help you on this journey. 

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

I just want to add that curcumin is an anti-inflammatory and may ease symptoms of arthritis, so it may be useful for tripawds even if there’s no sufficient scientific data of its antitumor effects.

It also has anticoagulant ( blood thinning) effects, which is good to remember. I had to stop giving it to Razbeg because of that, for Razbeg has von willebrand disease and too much blood thinners causes problems.

Razbeg the rescue borzoi (born in 11.06.2009) became a tripawd in 20.09.2018.

He and his adopted "brother" Myrsky have their own facebook page:Razbeg & Myrsky
