Homemade Dog Joint Supplement Treat All Natural




About: I make a variety of projects on instructables. I enjoy making flea free soaps for my dogs and have an interest in candle making and painting/drawing. I also enjoy to cook and bake and crafting. Enjoy taking...

When my dog reached 10 years old, he started having some joint problems

His joints would creak and he would be slower at walking

I worried for him if he had arthritis or not

I considered purchasing joint supplements for him, but they were just way too expensive

I started looking around the internet looking for some homemade supplements but couldn't find any

Until I came across a post on Pinterest which said that gelatin is great for the joints of dogs

I decided to create my own supplement treats for my dog with gelatin

After giving my dog one supplement treat a day, he started being more active and his joints didn't creak any more

I was so happy that he was all better now with his joints

I will always use these supplement treats

They are easy to make and are all natural

Plus have other ingredients that are very nutritious for dogs!

Step 1: Ingredients

1 packet of gelatin (provides collagen which increases the elasticity of joints in dogs)

1 cup of hot water

small bowl

1/2 tablespoon turmeric (has anti-inflammatory properties and is safe for dogs)

1/4 cup of chopped ham or turkey, or any type of cooked meat

Step 2: Steps

First, empty the packet of gelatin into a small bowl

Add a few spoons of water until it solidifies

Next add in the turmeric and stir

Set aside

pour your hot water into a small or medium bowl and add in the gelatin mixture little by little, stirring until the gelatin mixture melts off

Once all the gelatin mixture is stirred in, add in the chopped up meat and stir

Place the bowl with the gelatin into the refrigerator until it solidifies

After it is solidified, take it out of the fridge and using a sharp cut the gelatin into a cube in the bowl

And that's it!

Step 3: Results

This is a very easy supplement treat for join recipe

Give one small cube of these treats a day to your furry friend :)

This recipe is original and most importantly all natural

And it is effective!

If you have any dogs that are 9 or more years old, this is the perfect supplement for their joints

Instead of spending a lot of money on joint supplement that you don't know what is in them, make these easy all natural supplement treats for joints

And your dogs will love them!

    You Should Add Black Pepper to increase turmeric absorption, and some coconut oil, since turmeric does not mix well with water. black pepper increases a lot absorption, take a look at golden paste recipes also!

    Based on my (human) health provider's instructions, I'd add a bit of black pepper so the body can better utilize the anti inflammatory properties of the turmeric. I'll try this when my pup gets a bit older; he's only just 2 now.

    is pepper safe for dogs? I was aware that spice may not be so great for them, but I can't be sure. +1, my dog is also around 2, but I'll keep this one in my back pocket. Great job Igioteno :)

    My apologies. I hadn't checked on that and I see that it can cause stomach upset and much, much worse. So please disregard my suggestion. Not everything for people will work for our canine friends. I'll still keep this in mind for when he gets older. And keep the pepper in mine only. Thank you for catching that.
