‘My dog got her old spark back’: Could this turmeric tablet unleash your older dog’s inner puppy?
Ad Feature by FutureYou Cambridge
As autumn begins and cooler weather starts making a comeback, some of us with joint problems will be dreading the return of the stiffness and discomfort that can come back with it.
But do dogs suffer the same problem with the change of season? As our furry pals can’t tell us directly, they depend on us paying attention and finding out.
Sheila Peddieson from Rothbury in Northumberland first noticed that her beloved ‘cuddle monster’ – an 8-year-old Working Cocker Spaniel named Gigi – had developed a problem after she jumped off the bed one winter morning.
Gigi stopped limping within a week of owner Sheila starting her on CurcuPet-K9
‘She sleeps with us, but the bed is really quite high, and I noticed that she started to limp quite badly after she jumped down,’ says Sheila.
Sheila took Gigi to the vet for an X-ray to check, but nothing showed up.
‘Then she stopped me from taking her on her walks. We’d get as far as one street away and she’d put the brakes on, as if to say, ‘I’ve had enough, I want to go home.’
That was Gigi’s story for the next three or four months. ‘I couldn’t stop her jumping off the bed, so I bought a good foam dog bed for her to land on, to take away some of the shock.’
‘Then my cousin suggested I try making a turmeric paste for her. So I did that for a while, but I didn’t really see much of a difference.’
But that left Sheila open to the idea of turmeric when she came across an ad for CurcuPet-K9, an advanced curcumin supplement developed specifically for dogs.
‘I thought, ‘Right, I’ll try this.’ For Gigi, the transformation was remarkable.
‘Honestly, she stopped limping within about a week,’ says Sheila. ‘And she wanted to go back on her walks, going the full distance. She got her old spark back. She just seemed to have a renewed lease of life.’
CurcuPet-K9 was formulated by FutureYou Cambridge after they discovered people were giving their human turmeric supplement, Turmeric+ to their beloved pets
‘I’ve kept her on CurcuPet-K9 ever since. I give her two a day, one in the morning, and one at four-thirty with her evening meal. It’s helped her greatly. She’s still jumping up and down off beds, but she’s no longer limping at all.
‘It’s changed her life. It’s just more pleasurable for her now. Where we live, there’s lots of beautiful country walks, and she’s raring to go. Life is good and she’s a happy little pup.
‘I’ve recommended CurcuPet-K9 to friends who have older dogs with problems. All I can say is: try it. For us, it’s absolutely fantastic.’
CurcuPet-K9 was formulated by FutureYou Cambridge, a leading UK supplement developer, and it works in a very similar way to an innovative bones and joints health supplement they developed for people, called Turmeric+.
The key active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, but it’s difficult for our bodies – whether you’re human or canine – to absorb.
To make it more ‘bioavailable’, the scientists at FutureYou Cambridge use a patented formulation, combining a curcumin extract with soy lecithin, that’s 30 times more absorbable in humans than a standard turmeric powder.
It’s now become the world’s most scientifically documented bioavailable curcumin formulation, featured in 45 human studies involving over 2,000 people.
Turmeric+ users were so happy with the effect on their joint health they decided to carry out some of their own research closer to home.
‘Customers started telling us they were giving our Turmeric+ supplement to their pets,’ says Adam Cleevely, CEO of FutureYou Cambridge. ‘They could tell if it was working based on their behaviour, and the feedback was so positive we decided to create a special turmeric product for dogs.’
When Dougal started to develop a problem with his hind legs four years ago, Jennifer decided to try him on CurcuPet-K9
Some dog owners say that seeing their dog’s experience of CurcuPet-K9 has inspired them to take the original human supplement – like 72-year-old retired bank manager Jennifer Brown.
‘I look after Dougal better than I look after myself,’ says Jennifer of her beloved 16-year-old West Highland White Terrier.
‘Dougal’s such a character,’ she says. ‘He’s like a little teddy bear, he’s got a gorgeous face. The number of times I get complimented about him.’
She loves having him regularly groomed, and even commissioned a portrait of him.
When Dougal started to develop a problem with his hind legs four years ago, Jennifer decided to try him on CurcuPet-K9 after reading about it in a newspaper. ‘He used to limp at the back end,’ she says. ‘Now that’s completely gone.’
She’s since become a passionate advocate for the supplement among fellow dog walkers in her Harrogate neighbourhood.
‘I’m really proud of telling people about it,’ she says. ‘I think it’s amazing and I’m delighted.’
Vicki J Adams, the Chief Executive of the Animal Cancer Trust advises: ‘I cannot overemphasise the importance of [animals] keeping fit and active to prevent so many health issues. Many of the health challenges in humans can also affect our pets. Being active is also good for the psychological wellbeing of our pets.’
Helping our dogs stay active also helps owners keep fit through regular walks too, bringing about a virtuous cycle of health benefits for both – from healthy body weight to good muscle strength – all of which can help to relieve pressure on stressed and troubled joints.
Caley may be 13, but is still often described as ‘the puppy’ thanks to CurcuPet-K9
Ken Calder, 76, from Inverness can testify to the benefits dogs bring to our health and wellbeing. ‘According to my doctor, I’m fitter than most folk half my age – and he puts that down to Caley.’ Caley is his 13-year-old Border Collie.
‘She’s my constant companion, one of the family. People still call her ‘the puppy’. And I put a lot of that down to CurcuPet-K9.’
‘I’ve never known such an active dog. Caley’s unbelievable. She just runs and swims all the time, and she’s football-crazy.
‘But by the time she was eight or nine, she was having trouble. You could see that her legs were very stiff.
‘So I just thought I’d give CurcuPet-K9 a try. And by the time we finished the first pack, she seemed two years younger again.
Ken has kept her regularly on the supplement ever since. ‘She’s out twice a day and still goes swimming. And she still wants to play at night, so her energy is incredible.’
‘She goes out with lots of other dogs and always looks the most active of the lot of them.
‘I’m dead chuffed with CurcuPet-K9. I tell people about it all the time.’
The CEO of FutureYou Cambridge Adam Cleevely says: ‘We’re absolutely thrilled that we’re supporting thousands of older dogs to stay happy and active, and that can help their owners stay healthy and happy, too. As a dog owner myself I know how much dogs can help us maintain an active lifestyle. We’d love to support more pets, which is why we’re making an introductory offer to help people discover CurcuPet-K9 for themselves.’
