At BARC we tend to use more supplements in therapy than medications. One we recommend is our homemade Tumeric Veggie Paste. The paste is an all natural, healthy pet supplement that is easy to make. Based on the principals of “nutrigenomics" and “Food therapy" Branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine, this recipe is a safe and natural way to incorporate anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories into your pet’s diet.
Place the following ingredients into a blender/food processor and create a smooth paste:
2-3 cups assorted veggies – kale, broccoli, zucchini, green beens, carrots (use sparingly)
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 cup pressed coconut oil
1/4 cup tumeric
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
add water as needed to maintain constancy
Give 1/2 teaspoon daily for every 10lbs of weight. Can be given with food and divided into multiple doses. When introducing the mixture, start with 1/2 dose for 5 days then increase to full dose if no adverse reactions.
The paste can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks so freeze any extra and thaw out as needed.
