Going Through a Detox?

When recently discussing health concerns, specifically hot spots with a customer, they wanted to know why their pet was still showing symptoms after making the initial switch over to raw. The answer is simple! The body is going through a detox process

Now what does this detox process look like you may ask? Well, it depends on a few different factors. If your pet has had chronic health concerns such as allergies or itchy skin, it may get worse before it gets better. Their bodies are going through a detox and eliminating the toxins through the skin. Here is what you can expect during the first 90 days after switching over to raw:

  • Days 1-14 will consist of increased energy and firmer stools.
  • Days 15-30 is when previous health concerns will continue to improve.
  • Days 31-90 you will begin to notice a complete transformation.

It’s like eating fast food

We always like to say here around the office that this would be like us eating fast food everyday, then suddenly switching over to eating salads. This drastic shift, while it is the best option, may still cause an upset stomach initially. It is the same thing with our pets.

It is important to note that additional immune boosting nutrients can ease the transition process. Adding a prebiotic, probiotic supplement such as E-BARF Plus, will help with overall digestive and immune health. This can also be combined with our popular 100% Alaskan Salmon Oil.
