Has anyone tried Boswellia for their dog's arthritis, if so was it effective? I have read that it should be paired with curcumin to improve bioavailability. I cook with a lot of turmeric because the taste is relatively mild and it is supposed to help with inflammation. The dogs eat what I eat, because I cook everything from scratch and avoid foods that are dangerous for dogs. I want to move away from arthritis drugs like Rimadyl because I know that NSAIDS are irritating for my dog's GI tract. I have a large LGD who is 7 years old. She is very stiff at night. But we get out every day and she runs as much as she wants. I also have a little dog who is very sensitive to pain. I don't want to give him NSAIDS unless its really warranted. So I thought Boswellia would be a good supplement for both of them. I've been a little hesitant to use it because I was worried about allergies, but neither of them seem sensitive to it. Boswellia was recommended by a naturopathic vet that I've been watching on YouTube. He seems very reputable.
