Has anyone used or heard of using tumeric for inflammation in birds? Especially in a liquid form you would buy or make a suspension? (I don't think sprinkling stuff on foods can provide enough of the agent) My 40+ year old BCC is on digitalis and so cannot use meloxicam or celebrex because of drug interactions. He is having some leg/foot problems that may be due to arthritis. (xray out for second opinions). A trial of tramadol gave only very slight improvement but that is for pain and not inflammation so possibly wouldn't be getting to the root of the problem. (another potential cause is a tumor but nothing definite showed in xray). He has two toes that do not bend in and grip so climbing and holding foods has become more difficult. I would prefer not to use tramadol longterm so I'm looking for other options and thinking of tumeric suspended in optomega oil (blend of 3, 6, 9 omega fatty acids). Bloodwork came back OK. Any info or other ideas? I'm meeting the vet Wednesday to re-evaluate. note: I have a Morton's neuroma plus plantar fasciatis on the same foot and I have found daily cumin (Theracumin brand) does help with pain relief for me.
