Is Your Dog Vomiting And Having Diarrhea After Switching To A Raw Food Diet?

Have you just switched your dog from a commercial food diet to a raw dog food diet? Have you noticed loose stools and vomiting in your dog? He could be going through a detoxification period.

Detoxification happens because your dog’s body is being cleansed from its previous diet. It’s a normal part of switching. How long it lasts can vary depending on how many toxins your dog has in his system. But typically it starts within 1 to 2 days of switching to a raw food diet and lasts a few days. In some dogs, detoxification has been known to last for a few weeks, although I would advise having your dog checked by a vet if vomiting and diarrhea persists for more than a week.

Homemade Dog Food Ingredients

by Jane Dinunzio

Have you ever wondered why your dog’s breath or body has that distinctive “doggie smell?” It is generally caused by your dog ingesting chemicals and preservatives, rather then an all natural homemade dog food diet. Just by changing your dog’s diet, you will likely see a much healthier, more energetic and less odorous dog. I see and smell it for myself in my two Labradors

Is Pricey Pet Food Better Pet Food?

We’re all concerned that we do what’s best for our pets when it comes to buying food, right?! But sometimes it seems that the “best” dog food is simply unaffordable.
