(Newswire.net — May 9, 2017) Orlando, FL — Dogs, like humans, are also susceptible to a wide range of conditions. There are many conditions that may place these furry family members in a life-threatening situation, such as tumor growth.

Turmeric may offer benefits for dogs with brain tumors. While brain cancer is common in older dogs, the condition is increasingly impacting younger dogs too. Tumors usually develop in the brain tissue as well as the nerves connecting to the brain.

There are certain dog breeds that are genetically predisposed to brain cancer, such as Boston Terriers. While the exact cause of the condition in dogs has not been determined yet, it is believed that it could be due to exposure to radiation, pesticides, carcinogens in meat, traumatic head injury, or certain genetic factors.

There are different types of brain tumors in dogs, such as pituitary adenoma, meningioma, choroid plexus papilloma, and glioma.

Some of the symptoms of brain tumors are seizures, circling, nose bleeds, lethargy, head rotation, abnormal gait, and changes in behavior. Dogs affected with the condition may also exhibit unusual aggression. While there are treatments available such as radiation therapy or surgery, dogs may also see benefits from natural alternatives such as turmeric.

Turmeric is an ancient spice that has been used for thousands of years to potentially help fight a range of medical conditions. It contains a phytochemical called curcumin, which has a variety of unique ingredients.

Curcumin is believed to contain antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiseptic, antiviral, anti-carcinogenic, and antibiotic properties. As the spice’s principal bioactive constituent, curcumin is thought to help fight brain cancer in dogs.

According to studies, curcumin may be able to help fight the growth as well as the proliferation of a variety of brain cancers in dogs. Some of these cancers are glioma, astrocytoma, glioblastoma, oligodendroglioma, neuroblastoma, and medulloblastoma.

Curcumin is also believed to have the ability to sensitize brain tumor cells to chemotherapy. It could potentially reverse the resistance of cancer cells against chemotherapeutic drugs. It may also make them more susceptible to destruction by radiation and chemotherapy.

This powerful phytochemical may also potentially decrease the dose of chemotherapeutic drug needed for the treatment of cancer. Experts also reveal that it may work with chemotherapy and radiotherapy in protecting the rest of the body from side effects.

Pet owners may incorporate turmeric into their dog’s diet. There are many potential health benefits believed to be offered by turmeric for dogs.
