How old is your dog and how much does he weigh?
Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatmory.
I would start a dog his size with a sixteenth of a tsp every 12 hours. If it does not help (should work immediately) you can increase it to an eight of a tsp twice a day.Put any dose in canned food because the taste is hot and can be offensive or cause vomiting.
I hope he feels better very soon.
Blessings in 09 and always,
