How To Detox My Dog From Bravecto

Or maybe you’ve noticed your dog or even your cat seems less interested in their food?

What is the Best Way to Detox Your Dog & Cat?

Most likely, you have a general idea what toxins are. We often hear things described as being “toxic,” and we understand that this is bad, potentially damaging, and perhaps poisonous. Toxins can cause, worsen, or accelerate many health problems in people and pets. But many of the toxins that can profoundly affect our own and our pets health are hidden, and we may be unknowingly contributing to the load of toxins we and our pets have in their bodies. While toxins are bad for us, they can be even more devastating to our pets for several reasons.

First, pets are generally much smaller than we are, with smaller organs of elimination (e.g., liver, kidneys, lungs). When exposed to toxins, their bodies have to work much harder than ours do to eliminate them. Second, pets have a shorter life span. They dont have the luxury of time that we have for their bodies to eliminate toxins as gradually. Also, our pets cant talk to us to let us know when something in their food or their environment is making them feel sick. They cant switch their own food or decide to stop using a household cleaner that irritates their sinuses or lungs. Since we control our pets environment, they rely on us 100% to reduce toxins they encounter.

So what can you do to minimize the toxins in your pets lives and help them eliminate the toxic load they have in their bodies? Before tackling the specifics of how to help your pet with detoxification, lets take a brief look at what toxins are, where they come from, and how they affect cats and dogs.

Do you feel like your pet could be exposed to one of the above?

If your pet comes into contact with one of these (or even all of them), how does their body handle the toxin?

Your pet’s immune system is a powerful system and typically will do an amazing job at recognizing, detoxifying, and clearing the toxin from the body without leading to disease.

The immune system ramps up and will lead to inflammation, even diarrhea, or vomiting, which is the body attempting to get rid of the toxin.

However, when the body is overwhelmed or does not have the ability to deal with the toxin at that time, then the body will store the toxin, usually in the fat cells.

When toxins are stored this will lead to symptoms like tiredness or you may notice that your pet is always battling some type of infection (skin disease, upper respiratory, or sensitive GI tract).

Thus, over time if the toxin is not eliminated, pets will develop other abnormalities like tumors or cysts and impaired organ function.

Your pet was most likely dealing with a toxin overload.

Tracking Toxins in Your Dog & Cat

Toxins get into your pet through several means. Some get into your pet through accidental ingestion. Outdoor toxins like weed killers, pesticides, automotive exhaust & motor oil, and chemical road or sidewalk de-icers get into our pets when they breathe them in, eat chemical-laden grass, lick dust or residue off their paws or fur, or absorb them through their paws. Other environmental toxins arrive the same way from cleaners, air fresheners, laundry products and other chemicals used in the household. More toxins can be directly ingested in your pets drinking water, in commercial food and treats, and in the over-the-counter or prescription medications they take. And finally, some toxins (e.g., ammonia) are produced within your pets body, either through their own metabolic processes or by microbial activity, most often bacteria and/or yeast in the GI tract.
