Excess moulting, balding and itchy skin all point to the build up of toxic waste in the system resulting from unsuitable diet. This means either too much food, the wrong type of food or a combination of the two. The body is simply trying to rid itself of these toxins.
- Unsuitable ingredients in dog food, eg preservatives, colourings, flavourings, emulsifiers can affect your dog. Their bodies treat them as contaminants which need to be eliminated.
- Food allergy or intolerance can cause inflammatory and/or immune system reactions resulting in damage to cells, creating undesirable chemicals in the body. This happened with our rescued cavalier Fin.
- Too much protein and fat produce harmful waste products.
- A Poor quality diet or one which is not easily digested can affect the bacteria in the gut, These produce endotoxins which can affect your dog’s health.
