Alternate Super Size Golden Paste Batch

Slowly warm the water on lowest heat. Mix Turmeric powder in with water until it gets thick. Mix the Coconut Oil (or Coconut Oil/broth mix) in and finally the pepper. Turn off the heat and continue to stir. Allow to cool, then transfer to containers to freeze.
Dosage Guidelines for Golden Paste
Start small – feeding too much can lead to soft stools!
Start off with ¼ tsp. to each meal. Ultimately, you’ll want to give ¼ to ½ tsp. for every 10 lbs. of body weight.
Start with ¼ tsp. to each meal. Every 5-7 days, increase dosage by a small amount. For healthy dogs, stick with the lower dose to prevent diarrhea. Some dogs will start to smell like cat urine – if this happens, add a dash of cinnamon to prevent. Most don’t even notice.
In Tyson’s case, we started doing this right away and continued throughout the year. An alternative is Curacel Curcumin, which is Golden Paste in pill format.
Please note: Turmeric is a natural blood thinner. Speak with your vet before adding to diet if on meds that thin the blood.
