Cut the Crap! (Toxins, that is)

Your pet deserves to live a life of comfort and happiness with you like you do with her or him.  Please give up the idea that chronic disease is inevitable and that, oh well, you can’t do anything if your pet is genetically programmed to develop allergies, arthritis, cancer, or any other malady.  This is the old way of thinking.  Haven’t you heard of “epigenetics?”  Modify your pet’s environment and lifestyle to overcome its negative genetic potential.

There are 3 factors that contribute to your pets getting disease, that you can help fix – excess toxins, poor nutrition, and poor communication within the body.  I will concentrate this article on the first – toxins.

Toxins are any substances (usually man-made chemicals) that adversely affect the body’s normal biological functions.  Your pet may have subtle reactions such as a little coughing, sneezing, vomiting, loose stools, or diarrhea; or there may be frank illness with weakness and loss of appetite and weight with any of these signs.  The trick is to limit the toxins that your pets are exposed to - or at least limit what gets into their bodies - plus try to remove what toxins are already inside, by “detox-ing.”

To limit their exposure and what gets into their bodies:

1.  Walk your dog or cat in areas that are less chemical treated.  Avoid areas where there are warning flags.  And certainly wipe their paws with a damp cloth (dry cloth if it is wet outside) when re-entering your house, because they also pick up chemicals for the sidewalks and streets.  Remember, when they settle down, pets will lick their paws.

2.  Avoid over-vaccinating.  Consider vaccinal titer blood tests instead.

3.  Avoid chemical insecticides on or in your pet.  Use essential oils to repel fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, and flies.

4.  Avoid chemicals in food.  Feed fresh, frozen, or freeze-dried raw food.

Detox-ing your pet.

1. Brush the coat every day.  Massages release toxins.

2. Feed raw diet.

3.  Serious detox-ing for health.  This requires a conversation with your veterinarian, but always includes supplements to cleanse the liver.

Here’s to your pets’ health!
