Hello,
Thank you for asking about Katie. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.

Yes, it is safe to give turmeric with meloxidyl. What condition does she have that is being treated?

Please let me know what else I can help with or answer.

Hello Rebecca Thank you for your reply Katie has had two couchette replacements and appeared to still have some discomfort but since being on meloxidyl she is fine. The turmeric was to ward off possible joint problems with age, otherwise a fit healthy dogthanks wendy

That sounds great. I would also recommend fish oil for its anti oxidant and anti inflammatory properties. It is safe with the meloxidyl and the turmeric.

Thank you for the great rating.
