Some pets may experience "nutritional detoxification" during or after the transition to a healthy raw pet food diet. This is just a different way of saying they are purging their systems of all the built-up toxins from their previous diets and it is a normal process. Depending on the state of your pet's immune system the symptoms can vary quite dramatically.
Possible signs that detoxification is occurring can include:
- runny eyes
- loose stools
- oily coats
- bad breath
- itchy skin
Remember every animal reacts differently and some may not be obviously affected at all. If you have any concerns about your pet, please check with your holistic veterinarian.
