What Every Dog Parent Should Know

What Every Dog Parent Should Know

Sometimes, it’s difficult to figure out what’s going on with your dog and more challenging to know what your dog

because…well, dogs can’t tell us.  Take Digestive Enzymes for dogs, for instance.  If your dog could talk, he’d probably tell you how much better they make him feel.  Since our furry friends can’t tell us, as pet parents we have to depend on our own research and gut instincts to determine if we should (or shouldn’t) give them digestive enzymes.

How Do I Know if I Should Give My Dog Digestive Enzymes?

Digestive enzymes are vital to your dog’s health.  They boost his natural digestion process.  Digestive enzymes are naturally occurring proteins that help your dog break down his food.  They speed up the chemical reactions that help turn the complex nutrients in his food into substances his digestive tract is able to absorb and utilize.

There three primary digestive enzymes present in pets: lipase, protease, and amylase.  Lipase breaks down fat molecules.  Protease which breaks down proteins such as eggs and meat.  Amylase has plays the role of breaking apart carbohydrates which is a tough process for a dog’s system that is complicated by the fact that dog’s only produce a limited amount of it. Cellulase is an enzyme that is beneficial to your dog’s digestion of fiber, plants, and grains but that is not produced naturally in his body.  A number of premium canine digestive enzyme products include this enzyme in their formulation.

Saliva and other organs (like his pancreas, liver, and gallbladder) release digestive enzymes that are released into the intestines following a meal.  While healthy dogs have systems that properly produce and process digestive enzymes, some don’t.  There are a number of canine medical conditions that hinder the natural digestive enzyme process.

Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, or EPI, is a condition that interferes with the pancreas’ production of enzymes.  The issue is common to certain breeds such as German Shepherds but can be found in any dog.  Symptoms of the disease include being ravishingly hungry much of the time, having exceptionally stinky diarrhea frequently, and running considerably underweight.  A blood test can confirm if your dog has EPI or not.  Supplemental digestive enzymes have been proven to be very successful in dramatically helping this condition.

Other digestive problems may be improved by digestive enzymes too like malabsorption disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, and pancreatitis. Just because none of those conditions have been diagnosed in your dog doesn’t mean he doesn’t suffer from them.  Many digestive issues come with little or no symptoms.  Furthermore, natural supplies of the enzymes decrease as your dog ages.

Some believe there is no point in giving a healthy dog digestive enzymes but many authorities on canine health feel any dog can benefit from them.  Most dogs tend to gulp their food down without properly chewing well which can prevent the proper release of an adequate amount of saliva to accompany the food to the intestines.  Plus, even the best dog foods and snacks often come up short in providing optimal nutritious meals which may indicate additional digestive enzymes are useful to break the products down.  Not only do digestive enzymes help with digestive relief, they also promote health immune systems which supports the fact that even healthy dogs can benefit from digestive enzymes.

The Importance of Choosing Organic Digestive Enzymes

What good is any supplement if it is laden with chemicals and other unwanted ingredients?  The difference between organic and non-organic digestive enzymes for dogs is night and day.  When a product is certified as being organic, it is deemed to be free from chemicals (such as those used in many fertilizers), GMOs, toxins, and many other harmful substances.

In order to ensure the digestive enzyme you give your dog is not capable of doing more harm than good, be sure to choose a brand that is certified organic.

Digestive Enzymes for Dogs 101

The more you know about digestive enzymes for dogs, the better able you will be to decide if your dog could benefit from them.  Here are some important considerations:

Digestive Aids

Many people think probiotics and digestive enzymes are the same.  They are not.  Digestive enzymes are molecules that assist the digestive system by breaking down food.  Probiotics are live micro-organisms that reside in the gut to help your dog’s digestive process.  Prebiotics are healthy carb’s that your dog’s body cannot use so they are sent to the lower area of his digestive tract and serve as food for his gut’s healthy bacteria.

Each of the three aids are vital in your dog’s digestion system.  An absence or imbalance of any one of them spells trouble.  The saddest thing is unless there are outward symptoms, like diarrhea, you may not even be aware that your dog has an insufficiency.  That is why supplemental digestive enzymes and other digestive aids are so imperative to your dog’s health.

What’s in Digestive Enzyme Supplements for Dogs?

Ideally, digestive enzymes for dogs should contain ample amounts of digestive enzymes along with bonus ingredients such as prebiotics, probiotics, vitamins and minerals, and natural flavors.  Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.  Some manufacturers throw in fillers and other unwanted ingredients to stretch their profits at the expense of our four-legged fur balls.  It is extremely important to conduct extensive research any digestive enzyme supplement (or any other product) you intend to give your dog.

 How Much Digestive Enzymes Should I Give My Dog

Each brand comes with instructions for the precise dosage of digestive enzymes to give your pooch.  Many supplements come in powdered form and can be added to wet or dry dog food.  Water can be added to the mix if desired but digestive enzymes lose their effectiveness when they reach temperatures of 120 degrees Fahrenheit or higher so never use hot water.

Some come in the form of chews.  This method of delivery is great providing your dog will take them.  If he has stomach issues that affect his appetite or is picky, he may not take them well.

Initially, you may need to experiment with which is best for your dog, adding the supplement to his food or giving him a chew.

4 Natural detoxers for dogs

4 Effective Natural Dog  Detoxers

While it is true that there are benefits to pet vaccines, the process has negative implications as well.  Vaccines introduce toxins into your pet’s system which can be harmful.  Among the so-called “mystery ingredients” lurking in the vaccine, there are four known culprits: aluminum (known to accelerate aging within the brain), Thimerosal (a mercury-based preservative), contaminants (some of which are carcinogenic), animal protein (when injected triggers an abnormal flood of white blood cells). In the vaccine industry, it all adds up to big bucks (well over 35 billion per year), but the truth is – vaccines can spell disaster to your furry friend.

Whether you are vaccinating because you believe it will protect your dog from diseases or if you reluctantly do so just to be in compliance of your city or county’s regulations, a vaccination detox is a wise follow up. 

Here are a four tried and true detoxes that have been proven to be very successful:

Barley Grass Powder or Extract

It’s a misconception that dogs eat grass just to remedy an upset stomach.  They actually have a natural attraction to eating grass because it is very good for them.  It is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and enzymes so it cleanses the body’s cells and helps fight infections and heal.  It is an excellent catalyst to rid the system of toxins too. 

The problem with wild barley grass is that it is often contaminated with chemical fertilizer and insecticides.  You can create your own post-vaccination barley grass detox by adding a chemical-free barley grass powder or extract to your dog’s food.  If you purchase a pre-made mix, the directions will come with the product.  You can, however, concoct your own formulation.  Just snip organic barley grass into small slivers then generously add it atop your pup’s wet, dry, or raw food. If you really want to go all out, you can actually grow your own barley grass to use.

Cilantro

Cilantro is a plants whose leaves and seeds are often used for culinary and medicinal purposes, for humans and for dogs.  Cilantro is a natural detox that is especially effective for ridding the body of heavy metals which are found in vaccinations.  It also provides overall cellular health and promotes antioxidant support for your pooch.

It can be introduced to your dog’s system in its natural state by chopping the plant into small pieces and adding to his food or you can use a drop or two of cilantro oil or bottled cilantro for dogs.  Do be sure it is organic which means it is free of GMOs and unwanted chemicals.

Milk Thistle

Milk thistle is a flowering herb which is a cousin to the ragweed and daisy family.  It is a superb treatment for detoxifying the liver.  Since the liver is where toxins flock to, milk thistle is very conducive for getting the damaging ingredients of vaccines out of your dog’s system. 

You can grow your own milk thistle and add it to your dog’s food but the most common way to introduce it is to purchase milk thistle in bottled form.  Follow the directions for the suggested amount according to his size.  Another good thing about milk thistle is that the results occur very quickly after it is administered so the toxins spend minimal your dog’s system.

 

 is a flowering herb related to the daisy and ragweed family. … Milk thistle is sometimes used as a natural treatment for liver problems. These liver problems include cirrhosis, jaundice, hepatitis, and gallbladder disorders.

Epson Salt and Essential Oil Spa Bath

Epson salt naturally detoxes the body and relaxes it too.  By adding in some dog-friendly detoxifying essential oil, you’ll nip the introduction of dangerous ingredients in the bud.  Simply mix one cup of Epson salt with 2 Tablespoons of a carrier, like non-hydrogenated coconut oil.  Add in several drop of frankincense, lavender, or even a pet-formulation blend.  Run a tub of lukewarm water and add the formulation.  Then, gently coax your dog into the water.  Keep him in the bath as long as he will tolerate it and then fluff him dry.

Helpful Hints

In addition to the detoxes above, here are some suggestions concerning your dog’s vaccinations:

  • It’s ok to ask questions. Some vaccines are recommended by veterinarians but are not required by regulations.  Give yourself permission to question your dog’s vet about each vaccine and the ingredients thereof.  You can also conduct your own research online.
  • Detox in a timely manner. The sooner you can give your dog detox after his vaccine is administered, the better.  The less time the toxins are in his system, the less harm they will do.
  • Experiment to find the perfect detox cocktail. All dog’s systems are different.  If one detox doesn’t set well with your dog, you can try another one the next time he is vaccinated. 
  • Detox for other chemical contacts too. The same detoxes used for vaccinations can be employed for other chemicals your dog may encounter like tainted grass, flea and tick collars and shampoos, and unpurified tap water.

 

Vaccines for dogs are often mandatory, whether you are an advocate of vaccines or not.  But, that doesn’t leave you helpless as a pet parent.  No matter what your reasons for vaccinating are, detoxing your dog from the toxic ingredients puts the ball back in your park so you can keep your beloved four-legged friend as healthy as possible. 

 

Are you poinsoning your pup?

The Facts:  Are You Poisoning Your Pup?

As pet parents, we want to give our fur-babies nothing but the best. While you probably wouldn’t consider letting your precious pup grab a gulp of water from a mud puddle or lake, you might be shocked to learn what’s lurking in the “good” water you give him.

We make sure the live in the lap of luxury by providing them with top-quality food and plenty of clean, fresh water too.  Some us even give our pooches bottled water…to be on the safe-side.

 

The History behind

For years, fluoride was considered to be a good thing, for humans and for pets.  Or, so the story goes, at least.  Toothpaste and mouthwash companies boasted that their product contained it and it was added to public water for what was believed to be the cavity-fighting, positive properties it had to offer.  Doggie dental chews were proud to post their products contained fluoride too.  But, is fluoride poisoning our pets?

Fluoride began being dumped into public water systems back in 1945.  It was presented as a godsend for dental health.  Not everyone fell for the fluoride frenzy though.

In an article on the Science History website, the controversy is clearly laid out in an objective format rather than calling those who believe the fluoride craze to be a communist conspiracy theory to be crazy.  Then, there is the possibility that fluoride, like asbestos, was truly believed to be of value.  Through the years, scientific and medical research has proven otherwise, however.

 

The Hidden Dangers

Osteopathic physician and world renown alternative medicine expert, Dr. Joseph Mercola wrote an article entitled “The 10 Facts about Fluoride You Need to Know” in which he brought up the most prevalent dangers associated with fluoride.  In the piece, he backed up facts stating that in the 80 years fluoride has been put in American drinking water, there is no correlation between drinking it and the prevention of cavities. 

Mercola referenced a 500 page report on a fluoride study that pinpointed other organs fluoride affects, and not in a good way.  It has been linked to endocrine issues, blood sugar problems, thyroid abnormalities, brain dysfunctions, and has a possible link the cancer.  He also provided proof that it definitely has a direct link to arthritis.

FlorideAlert.org even published an online article on the subject of the relationship between fluoride and medical problems, such as arthritis.  The publication said that a mere 10 milligrams of fluoride given over the course of 10 years is enough to cause crippling skeletal fluorosis. In some parts of the country, fluoride is so heavily dumped into the water, babies are getting 100 times more than the recommended doses on a regular basis.  What does that mean for our fur-babies?

 

How Does It Affect Dogs?

It’s an established fact that fluoride is harmful to humans.  But, what about our canine friends?  What damage can fluoride do to a dog?  The answer is a difficult one to answer.  Drawing attention to the destruction fluoride can cause in the human body has been hard enough to get legitimate tests run on.  Profits are at stake.  Plus, what kind of liability would the government and municipalities be under?

Dr. Mercola didn’t leave our trusty furry ones out of his studies.  In his article, he concluded that over 34 human studies and at least 100 animal studies have linked fluoride toxicity to a myriad of negative and even dangerous physical conditions. And by the way,

Dogs are not immune to medical conditions caused directly by fluoride.  In fact, because they are smaller than humans, the chance they are getting toxic amounts is very probable.

 

Don’t Dogs Have Super-Powered Immunities?

While, over the years, canines have built up some immunities to certain things in the water that humans haven’t, fluoride isn’t one of them.  Dogs, to an extent, are able to drink water from a clean creek that would possibly make a human very sick.  But when it comes to toxins, such as fluoride, dogs have no more immunity than they do to any other poisonous agent. 

 

When It Gets Personal

From a personal prospective, I took my dog for a walk at the dog park recently.  Within minutes, we had crossed paths with 4-5 dogs (all well taken care of) who suffered from arthritis.  The most surprising fact was that 4 of the dogs were not up in years.  That spurred me to wonder what they all have in common.  It took only a short time before it hit me…water.  Every dog drinks water.

From the household tap water to water sold in bottles, fluoride is everywhere.  You, like myself, have probably given your pup fluoride-laden treats and dental chews, thinking you were doing them a favor.  Did you know many dog foods even has fluoride added?  The majority of bottled waters have fluoride added and guess what?  That is one of the number of things they do not have to disclose on the label.  To find un-fluorinated brands of bottled waters, check out this list

 

Am I saying that the fluorinated water we are giving our dogs are killing them?  I can only say I hope it’s not.  Is it causing medical conditions like it does in humans?  Probably.  By being aware and taking preventative precautions, maybe, just maybe, we can keep our fur-babies around longer and make sure their lives and happy and healthy for the time we do have with them.

Five Fabulous Natural Tips to Prevent Allergies

Does your dog suffer from allergies?  If so and his scratching, sneezing, and wheezing is leaving you feeling helpless, you’ll be happy to learn that there are some things you can do to help relieve allergy symptoms. 

There are three main types of canine allergies: contact, food, and acute.  Contact allergies affect your dog’s skin when something he is allergic to touches him.  Food allergies stem from substances he ingests.  Acute allergies are caused from outside sources like bee stings, ant bites, and vaccines. 

Here are five terrific tips to prevent allergies the natural way:

  1. Strengthen his adrenal system. Your dog’s adrenals are located just forward of his kidneys. They are small but very necessary for providing immunity, regulating energy and promoting healthy digestion.  No matter which of the three allergic reactions your dog has, a strong adrenal system will help increase his T-cell production, complement interleukin-1 and interferon action, promote cytokines production, stimulate the capability of macrophage, and will assist the cell-mediated response to his immune system. 

Echinacea is one of the best adrenal boosters in existence.  It is a popular herb that is safe for both dogs and humans.  Echinacea powers up immunities and the adrenals and even does their job for them when they aren’t strong enough to do it themselves.

Licorice root is another natural adrenal booster.  It is so effective, it helps dogs with adrenal fatigue and Addison’s disease.  Be sure to get a canine-friendly brand without any additives or artificial sweeteners.  Organic types are always best.  Follow the instructions on the bottle.

Once your pooch has a strong adrenal system, he will have more of what it takes to put up a good fight against all types of allergens.

  1. Help with the healing herb, nettle. Nettle has been used for allergy relief for centuries, long before traditional medicine was available for humans or dogs.  Nettle leaves assist in alleviating allergic symptoms and also help your dog fight against seasonal allergies.  Nettle is great for reducing inflammation that often accompanies allergies too.  It can be given alone and can be found in dog treats as well.
  1. Essential oils are especially helpful. Essential oils are a huge help when it comes to relieving your dog from allergies, especially those caused from contact.  Chamomile is soothing and excels when the skin is irritated because it doesn’t burn when the skin is broken from scratching it.  Helichysum is a godsend too.  It even works on eczema and other advanced itchy skin conditions.  Lavender is calming to your dog’s skin and to his nerves.  Just mix the oil of your choice with a hypoallergenic, all-natural carrier oil that’s dog-friendly like coconut oil.  Then, gently rub it on the affected area.
  1. A detox bath can help wash away the culprit. Whether your dog has gotten into poison ivy, is having a bout of allergies due to vaccines, or no matter what the case may entail, a detox bath will help rid him of toxins and other unwanted allergens. A detox bath is also soothing for his nerves which tend to flare up when all the itching, scratching, and related reactions are going on.  To prepare the detox, fill a bath for him in the tub and then add Epsom salt, usually about 1 cup full.  Add in the desired amount of apple cider vinegar (a ¼ cup is recommended) and a drop or two of essential oil such as lavender or chamomile.  You can even combine several dog-safe essential oils for a soothing blend.  Keep him in the tub as long as you can and then rinse him off and fluff him dry with a clean towel.
  1. Probiotics are pro at fighting against allergies. Probiotics give your dog’s system the power to pack a punch against allergens.  In fact, they can even reduce or eliminate the amount of allergic reactions he has and decrease the severity of them too.  Probiotic is a healthy bacteria that is helpful in fighting off infections, diseases, and allergies too.  You can add -dog-designed probiotics to his daily diet which are available in chews, liquid, or capsules.  These products generally contain the exact friendly bacteria that are found within your dog’s gut like Lactobacillus acidophilus, and Enterococcus faecium. Or, you can make your own concoction for him by giving him unflavored, unsweetened kefir or yogurt with live cultures.  Probiotics are helpful when managing all types of allergies but are especially valued for pesky food-based allergies.

Dog allergies are no fun for you or your dog.  But with the tips above, you’ll be well on your way to helping your four-legged friend defend himself against the allergens that ail him.
