Doggy Detox: How To Flush A Dog’s Digestive System
by Bernie's Best
Toxicity Is Unavoidable
The first thing we can do to combat toxicity for dogs is to work on eliminating as many of the toxics materials such as heavy metals they're exposed to as we can. Choices about what we buy and expose our dogs to matter, for sure, and it's worth it for them and for us to read labels and be 100% confident in the companies from which we buy.
But, there are other things we can do to flush our pet's digestive systems and help them be their healthiest. And they're not quite as difficult as you might think!
Why Should I Consider Dog Detox?
Too much burden can leave your dog's organ systems struggling to keep up and you'll start seeing the effects of liver and kidney toxicity in dogs. While younger and healthy pets may not need daily liver support, older pets and especially the ones on meds could benefit from a liver formula that includes nutrients such as trace minerals, cruciferous vegetables, silymarin (milk thistle), amino acids, and antioxidants. Some of the signs and symptoms that toxins are building up and not being effectively eliminated include itchy skin, watery/runny eyes, diarrhea, constipation, leaky gut and more. That's why it's imperative you support liver and kidney function in your dogs, and keep their digestive systems healthy.
How To Detox Your Dog?
Cleanse the Liver
Support the Kidneys & Give Plenty of Water
When it comes to detoxification, water plays an important role as well. Some experts recommend giving your dog a liquid diet (of bone broth) one day a week to ensure their digestive system is cleaned out and has the opportunity to regenerate and nourish itself.
Last but not least, don't forget the exercise routine for better digestion and to detox your dog. Exercise will help turning the food to energy faster, moving your pup's bowels, and improve circulation of blood and lymph fluid, all of which contributing to cleansing, detoxification, and elimination of toxic materials from the body.
Remember, you should always check with your veterinarian before changing your pet's diet and activity routines. If your pet has eaten something poisonous, has persistent diarrhea or vomiting, immediately call the vet for professional help. Do not try to apply home remedies unless advised by your veterinarian.
Bernie's Perfect Poop Keeps Your Dog's Digestive System Healthy Every Day
We created Perfect Poop with your dog's digestive health in mind. Okay, initially, it was OUR dogs' digestive health, but as we researched and learned about all the toxins our dogs are exposed to, we realized that keeping the organs that flush toxins clean and healthy meant everything.
Especially when it comes to gut health. Perfect Poop has premium fiber to ensure the food you feed your dog moves through at just the right speed for maximum nutrient absorption. Miscanthus grass is 100% natural, sustainable and clean, and what we use in combination with pumpkin and flaxseed for a fiber-rich supplement that keeps your dog's gastrointestinal tract running smoothly. The GI Tract is the system responsible from breaking down and decomposing the food your dog eats. A healthy GI tract will move waste materials faster and hence release the toxins from the body quickly.
We also add high-quality pre- and probiotics for optimal microbiome protection and enhancement. We use Bacillus Subtilis and Bacillus Coagulans. They're hardy, spore-forming probiotics that are able to stand against the harsh stomach acids in your dog's digestive tract that can destroy other the probiotics in other supplements. *Hardy spore-forming probiotics withstand harsh stomach acids to reach your dog's intestines. B. Subtilis once was used to treat urinary tract infections before antibiotics were developed to do so. It helps produce IgA, which is an antibody that is high in strong immune systems. It helps boost your dog's gut lining and can produce Vitamin K. B. coagulans is a bacteria that produces lactic acid. This is what crowds out harmful bacteria in your dog's gut, and ensures the microbiome flourishes with healthy bacteria. It's anti-inflammatory, and this helps keep your dog's digestive tract in its best shape for maximum nutrient absorption.
All of this leads to healthy immune systems for your dog. And when your dog's immune system is at its best, he can battle all the toxicity the world has to throw at him. His immune system is the best and most straight forward armor against environmental and other toxins and illnesses. Since he's exposed to those constantly, keeping his immune system at its strongest is what will keep him best ready to battle those toxins.
So give your dog Perfect Poop with every meal. It's like keeping your dog's protective organs detoxed with every bite, and he'll just think you're giving him a delicious treat! We call that a win-win!
