Skin and Coat Problems in Dogs and Cats
The fact that your pet may have skin and coat problems is itself logical.
The skin is a major eliminative channel as much as the liver, kidneys, intestines, ears, eyes, and saliva.
In fact is likely that if your pet has skin and coat problems then one or more of the following problems will be present at the same time.
Anal gland, ears, runny eyes, bad breath, tooth tarter, chewing feet, eczema, itchy skin, excessive shedding, occasional diarrhea, body odor, dandruff, loose or mucus stools, history of colitis or cystitis, seeks cool area’s.
The standard medical approach to skin problems is to use drugs which simply inhibit the immune system.
From a holistic standpoint we take the view that the body is attempting to rid itself of toxic or waste materials.
In other words these symptoms are merely signs that your pet is trying to heal.
Thus we need to address the CAUSE of the problem, usually diet and the method of feeding.
