Feed detox


Feed detox

If our furry friend has been eating industrial and completely processed foods such as feed for a long time, when starting him on the raw or BARF diet, it is normal for him to go through a detoxification period. Your body must eliminate the waste that the feed has accumulated over time in your stomach and digestive canal and that it was never able to absorb. It is also very important that you recover all the bacterial flora in your stomach and intestinal tract. So that you don't panic, it is best that you know the possible symptoms of this detox period. Don't get discouraged, they will soon pass and this is the best path you can follow for the well-being of your dog or cat... Some dogs do not have any symptoms. For others it lasts a week and in more sensitive furry dogs it may last a while but you don't have to worry.

Symptoms of detox

Main… Diarrhea, mucous stools, constipation, vomiting and bad breath; To counteract and minimize its appearance, we recommend starting the raw diet or BARF through the soft diet as we tell you here for dogs or progressively including the BARF for cats ; We can also observe changes in their hair such as dandruff, dry fur, itchy sensations or allergy-like pimples; Aloe vera as an external ointment and a little spirulina in your meals can help improve them. If mucus and tearing appear, add a little oregano to your food, it is also valid for bad breath and the symptoms improve. Another important change you will notice is that your dog or cat is suddenly drinking less water. Sometimes they barely touch it, that's because with a diet based on real foods that maintain their natural moisture, they are absorbing water through the food. Take it calmly and patiently, the appearance of these symptoms can be discouraging but you are doing what is best for your furry friend. You will soon see the benefits! *This article has been written based on our knowledge and unconditional love for dogs and cats, but at no time does it replace the advice of a veterinarian. The CRU will be happy to try to resolve any questions you may have, but if your pet suffers from any pathology, we recommend that you consult with a registered veterinarian. Share:
