Question: Does turmeric/curcumin help for osteoarthritis in dogs and cats? Is it safe?
Answer: Some small studies have suggested that curcumin may reduce markers of inflammation in dogs and cats, but studies have not shown a direct benefit on the symptoms of osteoarthritis in pets. Curcumin appears to be safe for dogs and cats, but be aware that, as with people, there are safety concerns with certain medications and medical conditions — as well as with an absorption enhancer found in some formulations.
