Your dog might be experiencing malnutrition and you don’t even know it yet!
Does your dog suffer from any of the following?
Symptoms of Malnutrition:
- Dull sparse hair
- Frequent scratching
- Inflammation: red swollen skin
- Severe allergies
- Inconsistent or unusual bowel movements
- Lack of energy
- Bad breath
- Gas, bloating
- Weight loss or gain
Malnutrition doesn’t only apply to the amount of food your dog is getting; malnutrition could also mean insufficient nutrients in the food your dog is eating regularly.
A nutritional deficiency shows itself most outwardly in your dog’s skin and coat, but the health issues range much deeper than that. Beyond skin inflammation and hair loss, nutritional deficiency in dogs can also cause serious health concerns such as congestive heart failure, kidney disease, or pancreatitis.
Sadly, many common dog foods do not offer the best quality nutrition for your dog – even if they’re marked as “complete and balanced!” Far too many of these brands include various preservatives, artificial colors, and fillers to make the food cheaper and more marketable.
If your dog suffers from any of the above and you suspect your dog may be experiencing malnutrition, read about a furry little friend who recently found help at the Barkery.
Sebastian came to us at the Barkery in early July with severe allergy symptoms including redness and hair loss along his back and hind end. Like many dogs, this allergic reaction and inflammation was due to poor nutrition – but Sebastian was a picky eater, barely eating the grain-inclusive grocery store brand that came with him when he was adopted. This malnutrition kept Sebastian up all night itching and scratching – which only worsened his inflammation.
Then, thanks to the Barkery, Sebastian’s mom found a healthier food option that he loved. Sebastian made the switch the Petcurean Now Fresh Small Breed Adult dog food, along with supplemental Animal Essentials Detox, and Carna4 Ground Sprouted Seeds probiotics. Since making the switch, Sebastian loves his new food, his hair has grown back, and his personality is present now more than ever! (Take a peek at our online store for these products)
Sebastian’s mom Coral K commented: “Sebastian gets SO excited every time his brown paper bag full of goodies gets delivered from the Barkery! I can tell he’s feeling so much better, and he looks great too!”
