CurcuPet-K9 turmeric dog supplement now in Australia

Don’t let your best mate suffer: new ancient spice turmeric supplement is helping deliver a new trick for old dogs

The healing and restorative powers of turmeric have been known for centuries but one Sydney businessman has taken the wonder spice to a new level by bringing to market a natural treatment to assist arthritic dogs become more active. 

Sam Hunter is the brainchild behind K9 Health, a Sydney-based company which has brought turmeric based supplement CurcuPet-K9 down under to help the old dogs of Australia better cope with the pain of osteoarthritis.

The product - the first natural pill of its kind - combines the herbal powers of curcumin (from turmeric) and soy lecithin. Although it’s only been on the market locally for a few months, dog owners are already reporting outstanding results.

“We’ve had case studies of dogs which were virtually immobile being able to run up and down stairs after taking our turmeric pills. Owners have told me the product has literally been life changing for their dogs,” said Mr Hunter.

The new easily digestible capsules are aimed at replacing traditional drugs for senior dogs suffering from osteoarthritis, developed naturally through old age and wear and tear. 

Mr Hunter discovered this natural remedy when he noticed pet owners in the UK were starting to take it upon themselves to give their pets human purposed turmeric. Through his desire for wanting to help man’s best friend, Hunter developed the supplement Australians can now access.

“Despite vets often prescribing senior dogs anti-inflammatory medication, I wanted Australian dog owners to be able to access a natural remedy with proven results, so I developed CurcuPet-K9 in an effort to make this possible,” Mr Hunter said.

“Through my own research I saw pet owners in the UK administering turmeric intended for humans to their pets and were seeing great results, so I created an Australian-first product with the correct dosage for dogs. Since it is thirty times more absorbable than standard turmeric and tested locally in Sydney, pet owners can be guaranteed a local product to help their furry friends in their old age,” he said.

Dr. Andrew Miller of Galston Veterinary Clinic stands by CurcuPet-K9, saying that it needs to be considered as an alternative treatment for dogs with arthritis. 

“Dogs with arthritis often suffer from chronic pain, have difficulty getting up, have reduced mobility and are generally lethargic. Vets tend to treat dogs suffering from chronic arthritis with non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and whilst these can be beneficial, long term use may be associated with secondary kidney and gastro-intestinal side effects, so to avoid this, a natural remedy is preferred.

“During my twenty five years in the vet industry, I have never seen a natural product that relieves osteoarthritis like this. 

CurcuPet-K9 with its natural anti-inflammatory effects should definitely be considered as an alternative treatment for dogs with arthritis,” said Dr Miller.
