So many of our dogs and cats suffer from seasonal allergies, those environmental allergies that come with the first blooms of spring and pollen in the air and even in the fall season with the falling leaves. These are most likely the allergies, bumps, and itches that your pet gets only part of the year and in most cases, they disappear in the winter months but come back again when things start growing again.

Most of our pets who suffer from seasonal allergies do so in the spring and summer so preparing in the mid-winter is the best time of year for the greatest defense against seasonal pet allergies.

Here are just a few of the benefits of a Spring Detox - which typically begins in the February/March time period. 

  1. Supports liver function: The liver is responsible for removing toxins from the body, and a spring detox can help support liver function and improve its ability to remove toxins.

  2. Boosts immunity: Detoxifying your pet's body can help boost their immune system and prepare them for seasonal allergens.

  3. Reduces inflammation: Detoxifying can help reduce inflammation in the body, which can help prevent seasonal allergies from worsening.

  4. Increases energy levels: Toxins can make your pet feel sluggish and tired, but a spring detox can help increase energy levels and improve overall health.

  5. Improves digestive function: A spring detox can help improve digestive function, which can be important for pets who are sensitive to certain foods or who have digestive issues.

  6. Enhances skin and coat health: Toxins can negatively impact skin and coat health, but a spring detox can help enhance their appearance and improve their overall health.

  7. Supports weight management: Toxins can cause weight gain and other health issues, but a spring detox can help support healthy weight management.

  8. Reduces exposure to harmful chemicals: A spring detox can help reduce exposure to harmful chemicals and toxins in the environment, which can be especially important for pets who spend a lot of time outdoors.

  9. Increases overall wellness: By removing toxins from the body and improving overall health, a spring detox can increase overall wellness for your pet.

  10. Preparation for seasonal allergies: By detoxifying your pet in the spring, you can prepare them for seasonal allergies later in the year and reduce their symptoms.

In addition, you can further boost their immune system with other supplements including:

Rotating through these supplements over the course of the year can make a tremendous difference in the life of your pet. This is what we did with our dog Potter who always suffered from seasonal allergies breaking out in oozing welts on his body. By boosting his immune system and regular detoxification we've been able to get him off of all medication and he can get through the spring and summer months now without breaking out.

Getting ahead of the issues is always best giving your pet all of the tools they need to fight environmental toxins before they get too bad. If your pet is currently suffering from seasonal allergies then a good gentle detox and supporting their immune system will go a long way in bringing their body back into balance. It takes time and patience. There is not an overnight fix to the issue but with time you'll begin to see changes and eventually bring them back to full health.

We're always here to help you. We have a lot of experience in helping our pets with their allergies including finding the right diet, the right supplements, and how to use them.
