Did you know that the majority of dogs in the U.S. today are nutritionally deficient?
Why do dog’s shed?
In America today, most of our four legged friends are suffering from nutritional deficiencies. (Their not starving) however, due to the monopoly the commercial pet food companies have over what americans feed their dogs it’s not surprising. Commercial pet food is highly processed leaving our dogs shedding excessively, itching, licking, biting and much more!
Symptoms of nutritional deficiency:
How do you know if your dog is nutritionally deficient? Here are some symptoms that can help you determine if your pooch is nutritionally lacking.
Itching: You may think that dogs just scratch and that’s that. However, more and more dogs end up in the vet’s office getting cremes or pills to take care of “chronic itching.” This is because they are receiving too many carbs in their diet (through commercial pet foods aka kibble.) and are usually battling an overgrowth of yeast that irritates their skin.
Shedding: You’ve probably heard at one time or another that “all dogs shed”, or “my breed of dog is known for shedding.” These statements are both untrue! Healthy dogs should only shed twice a year due to seasonal change. Shedding out a heavy winter coat when it gets warmer and thicker coat pushing out the short coat when it gets cold again. However, the fact is that most dogs are shedding due to lack of omega fatty acids in their diet. These essential fats are needed for keeping the skin moist and healing and restoring elasticity into the skin. Without these your dog’s body will be depleted leaving unhealthy skin and coat and brittle dying hair, causing excessive shedding. “excessive shedding” means any more than necessary which in this case means more than the usual season changes.
