If your dog has been on a processed diet, they may experience a mild detoxification period when first transitioning to a natural raw diet.
This will take place through their bowels and skin. Your dog may experience the following symptoms:
- Runny eyes
- Dry skin
- Excess shedding
- Mucus coating your dog’s poop
- Skin conditions may briefly worsen
When switching to a raw diet, all of these symptoms are completely normal.
While some pet owners may be concerned, this is actually a good thing.
Many people refer to this as becoming “unsick.” Toxins accumulated from eating a processed diet will be eliminated by your dog. These symptoms should go away once new healthy cells replace the old unhealthy ones!
