Your kitchen pantry may contain several natural herbs and spices that can improve your dog's health. Rather than spending hundreds of dollars on expensive supplements, you can improve your dog's health with these three simple ingredients you probably already have.
 
One of the best natural supplements for your dog is turmeric. This rhizome is grown native to India and is an important part of Ayurvedic medicine.  For centuries, turmeric has been used as an anti-inflammatory medicine, helping with inflammation due to both acute and chronic injuries and diseases. Turmeric has also been proven scientifically to work as an antiviral, antibacterial and detoxifying supplement. Turmeric can be used to alleviate cancer, arthritis, heart disease and liver disease. The general turmeric dosage for pets is ¼ teaspoon per day per 10 pounds of body weight.
 
Ginger has long been known to ease upset stomachs and motion sickness in humans. This common pantry spice can also help your pet's nausea and digestive upset. Ginger is in the same family as turmeric, so helps some of the same conditions as turmeric, including arthritis, cancer and other inflammatory conditions.  The recommended dosage for pets is 100mg of ground ginger per 25 pounds of body weight.
 
Like turmeric, cinnamon is a common Ayurvedic medicine.  Cinnamon is primarily used for digestive issues, such as gas, diarrhea and upset stomach. Cinnamon can also be a great supplement for dogs with diabetes, as it helps regulate blood sugar and insulin levels. Dogs with arthritis or other chronic conditions may also benefit from cinnamon, as it works as an anti-inflammatory medication.  It's important to use Ceylon cinnamon, which is considered to be "true cinnamon." The general dosage for pets is a pinch to 1/8 of a teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight per day.
 
There is no doubt that many excellent supplements for dogs are on the market today. Many of the most natural supplements utilize common items that you may already have in your pantry. By utilizing your own spices to improve your dog's health, you can be sure you are using fresh, organic and safe spices to help your dog live a healthier life.
