- Dog Nutritional Products Should Include a Detoxifier When we keep the dog more and more every day, the dog's health problems continue to follow the human rights conditions more closely. As the natural dog is separated further and further from its wild environment, their health problems increase dramatically. One of the biggest contributors to this dog problem is the constant exposure to harmful toxins. The most harmful of these are the metals aluminum, lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium. They contribute to everything that causes problems with the dog's teeth and the dog's bad breath to prevent allergies and skin diseases to serious life-threatening diseases such as cancer, arthritis, kidney failure, congestive heart disease, liver diseases, diabetes, impairing defense against bacterial, viral and fungal diseases. In our modern society, the domestic dog is exposed to these harmful toxic metals in alarming amounts. The natural dog was not exposed to these toxins and cannot defend itself as humans can in their new domestic world. These harmful metals are around us and sometimes more so around our pets. They are found in municipal water supply, our land, natural water sources, our food supply, as well as in sewage sludge, fungicides, pesticides, daily products, including cosmetics, fabric softeners, batteries, inks, latex, paint, plastics, solvents and wood preservatives. I mention all these things because your dog does not know this and does not like drinking contaminated water, chewing on batteries, plastic bottles or laying on the yard after the exterminator left his monthly spraying. Your dog is at longer risk then himself because of their relatively small size compared to people who make them more vulnerable to smaller amounts of these toxins. Disturbing as it is an important source of all these metals commercial dog foods. Tests of many recognized and reputable products, both cannoned and kibbled, have shown different levels of aluminum, mercury, cadmium and lead. The amounts of these metals were greater in kibble compared to handling due to refining and dehydration by the high temperature extrusion processes. The government and other authorities have long assessed, regulated, protected and provided information to the public about toxic substances such as heavy metals. Organizations such as the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Agency for Toxic Substances and Diseases (ATSDR) and the Occupational Health and Safety Services (OSHA) have been around for years. In comparison, it is a little done for our pets. So we have to learn from human experiences and adapt them to the natural dog. On ATSDR's "Top 20 Hazardous Substances", heavy metals arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium # 1, # 2, # 3 and # 7, respectively, are shown. Therefore, we must assume that if this is the case for humans, it is reasonably true if not so much for our "best friend" the domestic dog. The staff at Vitahound.com recommends both the addition of some natural foods and herbs to the dog's diet and the use of oral chelating cleaners to clear the toxins from the body and return your friend to.
