Canine Total Body Cleanse at Home

A daily total body cleanse for your dog is a gentle, simple way to clean your dog's body of accumulated toxins on a day to day basis. I am often asked..." Should I put my dog on a cleanse? "

These days people are becoming aware that the toxic load from foreign substances in food and the environment, are causing a big health crisis.  It's even worse for your dog. His body is smaller than yours and he lives closer to the ground...and he doesn't wear shoes! As pet parents we are partially responsible for how much of a toxic load our pets are exposed to over the course of their lifetimes.

You can easily lower the amount of toxins your pet is exposed to by taking a few precautions and changing some old habits to new, healthier ways of doing things.

  • Clean up your indoor and outdoor environment.
  • Make sure that your dog is not absorbing second hand smoke, toxic chemical cleaning products, outdoor lawn and yard fertilizers and other chemicals.
  • Start to think green.
  • Begin using household and yard products that are more eco friendly and contain less or no chemicals. This is good for you too!
  • Keep human medications well out of reach of your dog.
  • Avoid unnecessary vaccinations, drugs, chemical products for flea, tick and parasite control. These are all things that put a huge toxic load on your dog's main detoxifying organs...the liver and kidneys.

Body Cleansing Detoxification

Every organ in the body has an important and specific job to do. The liver and kidneys are assigned the task of eliminating toxins and waste from the body. Here's how you can learn more about your dog's organ systems.and the role they play in a total body cleanse.

So, it follows that if the ' toxic load ' is great, the job is harder to do. Eventually these organs can stop working efficiently, or worse, stop working at all, because the load is simply too great. When these organs are unable to keep up the hard work, the body will find another way of trying to get rid of the waste. This is usually through the skin and/or mucous membranes.

So if you notice symptoms like these, you will know that the waste removal demand on the liver and kidneys is in overload. Gently cleansing, and supporting the body's natural detoxification process should be done on a daily basis.

  • flaky, itchy skin
  • running eyes or nose
  • ear infections
  • mucousy stools
  • digestive problems ( vomiting, diarrhea, loose stools )
  • bad odor

How to Start a Natural Cleanse

Start by doing these two things:

  1. Feed a naturally cleansing diet composed of food that is appropriate to the canine species. Even an upgrade in the quality of food will start a natural cleanse. The body will use the better new food to make healthier new cells. Implementing a raw food diet is even better. Your dog's body will recognize this as the food his body was meant to eat.
  2. Random fasting will kick start the total body cleanse process. Going without food for 24 hours is the fastest way to health for your dog. Wild dogs are forced to have random intermittent fasts whether they like it or not. Some days they eat, and some days they don't! It all depends on the luck of the hunt!

Steps to a Total Body Cleanse for Your Dog

So to sum up, here is a list of things to implement in your life, and for your dog, that can go a long way toward improving his health by starting a daily total body cleanse process. Over time, this will improve his quality of life, and level of health.

  1. use eco friendly products both indoors and outdoors.
