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.
