Hi there,

My GSD is almost 7 years old and getting stiff I have heard that turmeric is good for GSD's. I would like to know if anyone has used this on your dog, how much do you give them and what is the best brand. Thanks.

Tumeric needs to be accompanied by Black Pepper to make it Bio-Available.
“Adding black pepper to turmeric or turmeric-spiced food enhances curcumin’s bioavailability by 1,000 times, due to black pepper’s hot property called piperine,” (Also called piper nigrum or BioPerine)

It also needs a little fat. I use organic coconut oil.

"Without fat, the active component in turmeric, curcumin, has a difficult time making it past the stomach, into the small intestine, and into the blood where it can offer the greatest benefits."

This is the one I use myself and for our dogs:

A friend of mine who works in the industry suggested labdoor.com for choosing supplements. They independently test multiple brands of various supplements and report back on potency, heavy metals, etc.
