Hey there! I hope you don't mind I moved your post here, but since we're on the subject of "Eating Healthy" ....

Here's a link to posts about Turmeric from Tripawds members. I've never tried with Wyatt Ray or Jerry, but it's my understanding that while it has been shown in a few studies to have anti-inflammatory properties, we would have to give it in such huge amounts that it would be pretty unpleasant. Still, it's a pretty benign spice so if you want to give it a try, it's in lots of different arthritis pain relief products for pets. How were you thinking of giving it?

I’ve been adding a tsp to her food.  Starting giving two tsp yesterday.  I’ve read it has anti cancer properties as well.  Anything is worth a shot.

I agree, totally. If she's tolerating it and doesn't mind, then why not! Just let your vet know when they ask what medications or supplements she is on. Some natural remedies can conflict with pharmaceuticals, or cause other issues after surgery.

I had an old spoodle who at 13 had multiple tumors internal and on her skin. Her eyes were cloudy and her activity levels were low. 

I changed her diet to home cooked mince, rice, 5 colours of veges with tumeric and black pepper (for bio availability of the tumeric). Making a batch to last 3 days. I added a vitamin mix. She was not on any medication.

There was a drastic improvement within 3 or 4 months. Her eyes cleared, the tumors didn't disappear entirely but stopped growing and some of the lumps felt smaller, she had more energy and mobility. She lived a better quality of life for another 3 years.
