If you haven’t heard of Golden Paste or recently just heard someone mention it, then I’m glad you are here to learn about it and how to make it. Turmeric has so many health benefits for humans and it definitely has multiple benefits for dogs as well. I feed this paste to my dogs because I want them to have less joint pain and simply live a long, happy, and healthy life.
Golden Paste Benefits
- Can helps prevent and treat cancer
- Powerful Antioxidant
- Natural and Effective Anti-Inflammatory
- Protects the Liver from toxins
Just to name a few of its benefits. There are definitely plenty more.
How to Make Turmeric (Golden) Paste
- 1/2 Cup of organic turmeric powder
- 1-1.5 Cups filtered water
- 1.5 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 Cup of cold pressed organic olive oil or coconut oil (I prefer coconut oil for even more added health benefits)
Mix the turmeric powder in a pot with 1 cup of the water. Only add more water if it is needed. Stir the liquid on low to medium heat for around 7 to 10 minutes. If it still looks watery add a little bit more turmeric and heat it on low for another few minutes. Be sure to still stir it.
Once the mixture looks like a paste, add the pepper and the oil. Be sure to stir this very well so it is evenly mixed. Allow the mixture to cool before putting it into a jar. Ideally this should only be stored for two weeks and anything left over should be tossed. When you run out, simply make a new batch. Occasionally I’ll even freeze it into little cubes to make adding to meals for my dog super simple.

Giving Your Dog Turmeric Paste
You can easily add this to your dogs meals by scooping it out and putting it in your dogs bowl with their food. Most dogs don’t mind the taste but if you notice they do, try mixing it with peanut butter as that can help entice them to eat it.
I recommend starting with giving your dog around 1/4 to 1/2 a teaspoon at first and gradually increase the amount as needed. I don’t recommend going over 1 teaspoon for larger dogs. If you have questions, feel free to consult your vet on how much is safe to give to your dog based off their weight.
If you ever don’t have time to make it or want a backup supplement to have that’s also a good choice for your dog, check out these Turmeric Bites or even this NHV Turmeric which is good for both dogs and cats.
