Most diseases that pets suffer from are suffered in silence. Because of their inability to tell you what the problem is they many times go undetected. Skin disease is different however. Millions of pets suffer from persistent irritation that result many times in self-mutilation. Incessant scratching can render the skin a troublesome condition. Owners are much more aware of existing problems with this condition and seek veterinary help. Antiparasitic, antibacterial,and anti-allergenic preparations are usually recommended. Owners that have grown resigned to the skin complaints of their pets are delighted to find that a change in diet to a more natural diet, seems to to work miracles. The skin provides evidence of the general health of the animal. If diet affects the immune system then skin health will also be impaired. Bacterial toxins can also damage the skin and set up allergic responses. Even fleas will prefer to infect unhealthy animals.
That is why we see very little flea infestations with pets on the raw meat diets. Skin disease conditions are without a doubt one of the most often asked questions that I am asked about each week. Building up the immune system and switching to a natural raw diet is the key to resolving the majority of these problems. Always best to heal from within.
