When it comes to real,
natural dog health – dog poop should not stink. So where does the nasty odor come from and how can we get rid of it?
If you are offended by the word, read no further because this Dog Talk Tuesday, Sandra and I are talking shit. This began as one of our off the wall conversations but it was so funny that a few days later I snuck the topic in on her during a recording session.
And of course, there is a point.
As loving dog parents we talk about everything as we should and what comes out tells us a lot! Sometimes it may be more than we want to know.
A case in point here is your canine's fecal matter so it's time to shoot the shit about, well, shit.
If you're wondering if your dog 's food is fermenting inside of him or could use some help with enzymes, let's go over some signs to see where your dog stands (squats?)
Signs of bad dog poop (or, truthfully people's):
Signs of good poop:
When you or your dog take enzymes between meals they will do other things just as important because some (protease) will break down foreign particles the body sees as proteins as we discussed. I am convinced that undigested proteins have much to do with suspected allergies so it's time to clean house.
To learn more about what enzymes do, listen to the Dog Talk Tuesday at Enzymes for Dogs.
If you're ready to use enzymes, that's fabulous! Here is what Lulu and I share. (Yes, only human grade supplements are good enough for my dog.) Besides, we do practically everything together so when I open a bottle it's one for me and one for her or two for me and one for her depending. She just gobbles them up but I need water to swallow them.
Proactazyme (enzyme combination to digest protein, fat, carbs)
Protease Plus (to digest proteins only )
Nature's Fresh Enzyme Spray (you can clean with it, get rid of odors - but it's great to relieve itching and far more. Heck I spray it on my face every day as a refresher. LOVE IT.)
(Purchase through any of the links above and join as a member. That gives you a discount but also notifies me of your purchase so I can email you with the right doses for your dog.)
And if you just can't wrap your head around anything besides kibble, giving your dog these quality enzymes really is a must.
