Why Our Turmeric for Cats and Dogs is the Best on the Market

For centuries, people around the world have used turmeric to reduce pain and inflammation and protect themselves against disease. 

But did you know that your pets can also benefit from the healing properties of turmeric? 

That’s because the active ingredient in turmeric, called curcumin, contains high levels of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help to relieve the symptoms of arthritis and other forms of joint pain in dogs and cats as well as humans. 

Curcumin has proven to be effective at blocking the growth of certain cancers and protecting against neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular risks and liver damage. It is also known to reduce the growth of disease-causing bacteria and disrupt fungal cell membranes to protect your dog or cat from harmful pathogens. 

However, making sure your cat or dog gets enough high-quality turmeric in its diet to fully benefit from the root’s health-boosting effects is easier said than done. Unless it is ingested along with certain “boosters,” the curcumin in turmeric isn’t easily absorbed by the body. Also, cats and dogs don’t always love the taste or smell of it. 

Then there’s the fact that turmeric, which is typically bright orange in color and often used in dyes, can stain your counters, clothing, and floors. And let’s face it, sometimes, when you’re in the kitchen trying to persuade a pet to eat something it doesn’t want to eat, accidents can happen. 

But our team in the VetSmart Formulas lab wouldn’t let these hurdles stop us... We knew how powerful turmeric is, and we wanted to include it as a main ingredient in our Critical Immune Defense formula for cats and dogs. 

So, we decided to create our own proprietary turmeric product that wasn’t limited by the traditional drawbacks! 

Critical Immune Defense


After months of research, our team at the lab found a rare source of white turmeric that has a much milder taste than regular turmeric. Our scientists perfected a way to naturally synthesize that turmeric into our own proprietary Turmeric Root Extract that is colorless and nearly tasteless, making it much more palatable for dogs and cats and eliminating the possibility of stains. 

More importantly, our proprietary Turmeric Root Extract is six times more bioavailable than standard turmeric root.  Think of “bioavailability” as “usability” in your pet’s body.  This means that our Turmeric Root Extract is more efficiently absorbed into your pet’s body, and your pet requires less of the active ingredient to get the same effect.  

On top of that, our proprietary Turmeric Root Extract is 95% standardized, so every dose is consistent and safe, and the positive effects are maximized for your pet.


VetSmart Formulas spent years working with formulation scientists, veterinarians, biomolecular scientists and other health experts to formulate and develop our effective and powerful Critical Immune Defense formula. 

This powerful health supplement was specifically designed to protect your pet from cancer and other life-threatening diseases by… 

  • Boosting the immune system
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Promoting normal cell growth
  • Protecting against toxins in food, water & environment
  • Supporting long-term health in dogs and cats

We conducted extensive research to combine the correct ingredients at the optimum levels, and held two product trials with hundreds of dogs and cats to ensure that Critical Immune Defense is one of the best all-natural immune-boosting products for pets on the market today.


At VetSmart Formulas, we believe that the best time to protect your dog or cat from disease is BEFORE they get sick. 

That’s why we encourage pet owners to use Critical Immune Defense to boost their pet’s immune system and shield them from disease. 

The immune system is critical to your pet’s health because it works nonstop to identify harmful pathogens and work to eliminate them before they can do harm. A weak or malfunctioning immune system makes your pet vulnerable to illness, inflammation, diabetes, osteoarthritis, liver and heart conditions, cancers, and other diseases.

Critical Immune Defense helps your pet’s immune system do its job right and promotes healthy cell growth, so they can remain strong and active for years to come. 

If you are in a situation where your pet is being treated for cancer, talk to your veterinarian or pet oncologist about Critical Immune Defense to help alleviate the effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatment and prolong your pet’s life expectancy. The all-natural ingredients have been used around the world for centuries, and the results are more than impressive.
