Turmeric is just one of the helpful herbs found in nature. This super herb helps pets live healthier lives. Adding it to your pet’s daily diet is probably the wisest decision you can make for your pet’s wellbeing today. It may help with health disorders like heart problems, kidney and liver troubles and even cancer.
What are the benefits of turmeric for pets?

Is regular kitchen turmeric good for pets?
A lot of us have turmeric powder in our kitchen. Some asian recipes often need a pinch of turmeric. It gives them a peculiar rich taste and the yellow colour that these dishes are known for. But did you know that turmeric is not bioavailable if digested alone? It needs specific herbs to be taken along with it in order to bring any benefits to your body or your pet’s body. And this list often includes black pepper. But adding black pepper and turmeric to your pet’s food directly will probably lead to your pet avoiding the food.
Will your cat or dog notice the turmeric in their food?
Yes, regular turmeric has a strong spicy smell and it is often advised not to be given to your pets directly. That is why pet parents are opting for turmeric supplements and treats. But what’s special about NHV turmeric is that it comes in liquid form. It is really easy to add the required dosage to your pet’s food without them noticing it. You can even squirt it directly into your pet’s mouth after they’ve had their meal.
Will turmeric help increase your dog’s or cat’s longevity?
Turmeric is a super herb that will help boost your pet’s immune system, and help support their heart and other organs. A healthy dog or cat will be happier and live better for a longer period.
Is NHV Turmeric vet approved?
Like all our natural remedies, our turmeric is also vet-approved. Our all-natural pet remedies are formulated by a holistic vet and master herbalist. They are all vet approved and our lead holistic vet, Dr Cook, uses them for all her animals. Our remedies are glycerin-based and are suitable for long-term use. No preservatives have been added to them, and that’s why once opened they need to be refrigerated and come with a shelf-life.
