TOPIC: Curamin for animals
Curamin for animals 10 months, 3 weeks ago #112
I recently was in my favorite nutrition store, a local shop in Oconomowoc called Apple Nutrition. I was looking for Rose hips as I read in WDJ about their pain reliving effect for arthritis. My oldest dog had his cruchit ligaments in both rear legs fixed and ever since had alot of stiffness, especially with too much activity. Anyhow the owner of teh shop, a very knowledge guy, recommended a product called Curamin... any expereince with this? It is primarily tumeric. Is it safe, is it effective? Any other recommendations? We do use fish oil and GlucosamineChondrotion.

Did you find the rose hips? I am looking for those as well. I plan to look at Outpost, probably the Frontier brand, whole herb. Frontier brand whole licorice is fantastic, so I'm thinking their rose hips should be great. These are an excellent source of "whole food" vitamin C which is of course an excellent antioxidant and is in many joint supplements in it's incomplete or "chemical form"(ascorbic acid, calcium ascorbate, etc.)
Yes, turmeric is touted for inflammation, pain, cancer...we use the Thorne brand: Curcuvet. Do want to try to use product free of heavy metals.Don't know the efficacy or safety of the Curamin brand.
My favorite four for torn ACL's/luxating patellas/stifle(knee)arthritis are: a quality glucosamine, fish oil, Standard Process Ligaplex II(couldn't practice without this!)--a "whole food and glandular for ligamentous repair and Standard Process Gotu Kola-an australian herbal for collagen repair--awesome!
Hope this helps!

I came across the questions in your post and hope I can help. I am the head of scientific affairs for the company that makes Curamin, which is EuroPharma, Inc. Curamin is a natural pain product and is designed for humans. It contains a high absorption curcumin called BCM-95 that has up to 10 times the absorption of plain curcumin. BCM-95 has published studies in both dogs and cats. The other ingredeints in the product are a speciall low BBA-boswellia called BosPure, as well as an amino acid called DLPA and an enzyme, nattokinase. While we have receiverd several reports form vets and dog owners regarding use of Curamin for pain and inflammation, the product was designed for humans. Even though the curcumin in the product has been clinically studied in dogs and cats, the product as a whole, with all 4 ingredients, has not been studied in pets. Therefore, even though we have many reports that it is quite useful, we don't have any research to show exactly how it works. This would be a great discussion to have with your veterinarian. Many integrative vets do use our product CuraMed, which is all BCM-95 curcumin and comes in two strengths to accomodate size differences in dogs. It also has published research showing its safety and efficacy in dogs and cats. I hope this information is useful for you. If you have any further questions with which we can help, you can do so in the "contact us" feature on our website, www.EuroPharmaUSA.com Good luck and best wishes for your dog's recovery.

Thank you for your helpful response! I will check out the site. I am always receptive to new, safe, and efficaceous products.
If you have any research you could send me that would be awesome. I have heard that is is difficult to find turmeric that is free of heavy metals? Has yours been independently tested for that?

HI Dr. Jodie, thanks for the quick and detailed response. I have not found the rose hips yet but I did find Rose Hip Seed Oil. In the latest issue of Whole Dog Journal they had lots of uses for Rose extracts for dogs.
I am going to make an appointment to bring Diego, my older sore guy to come see you, I think he needs more attention, your fav four sound good I will try those and he needs some chiropractic as well.
I am also working with a little rescue (foster) dog, mot much known about her but the animal communicator, Carolee Biddle, advised that she is in pain and I want to have her seen by you to try and figure out my next steps with her. I am using the Rose Oil I got for her for calming properties. I look forward to meeting you soon.
