Q. Is turmeric paste a good holistic approach to preventing cancer in dogs? I'm new to the research. What amount should be given to an 11yo 70lb dog?

A. Turmeric is believed to be one of the most promising herbs to fight cancerous cells but there is no actual proved evidence that it is indeed effective in doing so. on the other end, Turmeric at the right dosage is not likely to harm your dog in any way.
Dosage is approximately 15 to 20 mg per pound, so your dog would need 1000-1400 mg, but the paste probably has different concentration, so you would need to loom into that on the label.
