Digestive Disorders in Dogs (or Cats) Become a Thing of the Past!

Dogs with IBS (and Cats With Furballs) is Easy to Correct!

–          By Andi Brown, author of The Whole Pet Diet

Andi Brown The Whole Pet DietSo many people contact me; concerned that their dogs have trouble relieving themselves, experience bouts with IBS and constipation or diarrhea.  Cat owners often find themselves picking up messy fur-balls from around the house and notice their cats vomiting after they eat.  While all these symptoms may have become typical, they are by no means natural!  These pets all have one thing in common.  They’re experiencing chronic digestive disorders and are missing out on one fundamental thing. The good news is that these symptoms are really easy to correct, the solution is inexpensive – and will leave your pets feeling and looking better than ever before! 

The Dry Food Factor 

Dry food is dry; it’s not a misnomer. Dry food has less than 10% moisture, and is generally coarsely ground grain or starch in the form of pellets. It may start with decent enough ingredients, but it’s cooked at very high temperatures and then dried into a hard nugget. Even natural brands bake at such high temperatures; the beneficial fats and oils (critical to the coat, skin, digestive system and overall health) break down during the process and are rendered mostly useless. Think about it: dry food in, dry skin and hair out. If it’s hard, dry and crunchy, how is it going to provide beneficial oils to the body? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand dry foods cause many hair, and coat issues, but have you ever thought of what it’s actually doing to the digestive tract? Fortunately the Holistic Veterinary community has been vigilant about recommending that people supplement their dog or cat’s diet with high quality Essential Fatty Acid Oils (EFA’s) to help them enhance not only the coat and skin, but to also remedy digestive disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrom (IBS) chronic diarrhea, constipation and vomiting.

Here’s what happens.  Every time your pets eat highly processed commercial foods –  it literally dries out the digestive tract.  Every day your pet eats “dry, dry, dry”… it dries out the skin, the coat and causes a kind of plaque that quite literally blocks up the intestinal tract and inhibits the course of healthy assimilation and elimination.  By adding high quality, wholesome and fresh human-grade oils to the diet – you can help your pet to process the food properly through the system and have healthier elimination activity.  They’ll be more comfortable and you’ll notice improvement in a very short time!


Hairballs don’t have to be the norm, and cats that are fed a healthy natural diet, complete with a daily dose of essential oils, will rarely have this problem. Long-haired cats that groom themselves may experience an occasional fur ball during the shedding season, but remember the shedding season should be only twice a year. Nature intended a summer coat and a winter coat to accommodate the temperature changes. If your kitty is vomiting hair balls all year round, she’s most likely exhibiting dry skin, and excessive shedding too. You should be able to run your hand over your cat’s back and come away with little to no hair either on your hand or floating in the air. If you’re coming away with a handful of hair, your cat is an ideal candidate for our essential fatty acid program.

Andi with Rascal and HolidayLet’s look at the problem from the cause. Hairballs are clumps of fur that may be stuck in the digestive system.  They can clog up the body and could cause blockages. Hairballs are created when kitty cleans herself and ingests loose hair. Addressing the cause is the surest way to eliminate the problem. When you add the important fats and oils back into the food, you’ll eliminate the excessive shedding and loose hair that your cat is accidentally ingesting. Don’t be tempted to just treat the symptom with petroleum based hair ball remedies or hairball formula food. Get to the cause of the problem, understand the tremendous role that dry food plays in creating this problem and make the necessary dietary changes to support the body to function more efficiently. (Everyone who knows me understands that I only recommend a homemade diet).

Stay on a healthy grooming schedule. Brush regularly during season changes and give your long haired cats daily attention. Stay on the side of prevention and you will never go wrong. Diet and grooming should do the trick.

Added Benefits for Senior Pets 

Like the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz, senior pets need a good oiling to help with joint and heart health. So many health problems associated with EFA deficiencies are exacerbated as our pets age: susceptibility to infections, kidney degeneration, behavioral disturbances, liver diseases, arthritic conditions, heart and circulatory problems, and overall weakness. In short, it may not be the age of your pet but the lack of high quality essential oils that’s contributing to the problem.
