Digestive Issues in Dogs
The most common overall problem that I get called to work on is digestion or gastrointestinal issues.
This affects so many other aspects of the animal's life and tends to be the root cause of the presenting indicators for approximately half the animals I work with. What your animal eats is incredibly important and is the single greatest factor when it comes to their health. Almost 70% of a dog’s immune system is in the gastrointestinal system, so if they are eating poorly it will show.
I have years of first-hand experience with digestive issues as my dog, Kaia, has had a sensitive stomach since I got her. We’ve tried half a dozen foods, and a handful of digestive supplements to get a balance that works for her, but it was worth it. For me, my dog’s health is a big priority for me, as I’m sure it is for many other pet parents, and I want to help you worry less.
Approach: Firstly, you and I will talk about your animal's diet, lifestyle, and routine. I usually accompany this with a quick check for parasites using Iridology. The main part of the approach is to perform an Acupressure session to determine where the GI issue is coming from and do a detox if necessary. The last part is to make dietary and supplemental recommendations based on what is causing the digestive upset. Typically I also recommend a few follow up sessions for an Acupressure tune up.
