How can toxins affect my pet?
Exposure to toxins and poisons, such as those found in environmental pollutants, cigarette smoke and commercial flea collars may weaken your pet's immune system and damage their body's natural ability to fight off disease. Domestic animals no longer have to hunt for food and often the commercial food that we feed our furry companions is over-processed and contains preservatives and colourants – neither of which are good for their health. The fast pace of modern life leaves little time for regular exercise (for humans and animals!). This combination of ingested toxins and low physical activity can put extra strain on your pet’s body. The natural process of detoxification, involving many organs and a range of different processes, is less effective under stressful conditions and, as a result, toxins may build up, often with unfavourable results.
The first step in helping your pet eliminate toxins from the body is to examine lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise. Most of us are so used to feeding our pets commercially produced food that the thought of doing anything else seems very strange. But just as we need to eat a range of foods to ensure we get adequate vitamin requirements and adequate nutrition to remain healthy, so do our pets. And the more natural and unprocessed the food is, the better for your pet.
Raw food contains many essential nutrients and minerals that may be destroyed by cooking and processing. Commercially produced food typically contains many chemical substances (such as additivies and colourants) which not only have no nutritional benefit for your pet, but can actually seriously affect your pet's health - especially in the long-term. Furthermore, although rare, there have been cases of certain pet foods containing trace toxins – due to incorrect processing or incorrect formulation at the point of manufacture. It is always a good precautionary measure to detox your pet every so often.
Another important lifestyle factor is exercise. Regular walking or playing will boost metabolism, improve your pet’s circulation and increase energy – and in the process assist the body to detoxify naturally. In addition, pooches or cats needing to get rid of the extra bulge or two will find regular exercise extremely beneficial in trimming the flab and slimming down!
The Natural Way
Natural remedies can be very effective in helping to rid your pet's system of toxins and to restore optimum body functioning without any harmful side effects. They do this by naturally supporting thyroid and liver functioning, helping to facilitate digestive processes, boosting metabolism and enhancing the body's ability to process dietary fat. Herbal and homeopathic remedies can also help to improve all-round systemic functioning and restore health and vigour to pets that may have compromised and toxic systems. A healthy pet is a happy pet!
What is Detox Plus?
Detox Plus is a 100% herbal remedy specially formulated to prevent the buildup of toxins and to assist in eliminating toxins or poisons already present in your pet’s body.
Used regularly, Detox Plus will help to improve liver functioning, metabolism, thyroid health and the body's ability to ‘flush out’ harmful components and other poisons, helping to keep your pet in peak health.
How has Detox Plus helped others?
"Your Detox Plus capsules have been marvelous for my Golden Retriever who has been looking under the weather lately due to, we believe, preferring to eat our food than hers! As my husband does not always follow a healthy diet you can understand that she was eating many things that both dogs and people should not!!!! Your Detox Drops for people have helped me and so I thought I would try them from your Pet website. I have been very happy with the results. Now ..... what can I do about my husband????"
"Thanks for your advice about the Detox capsules. They have helped my beautiful Persian and she has much more energy again. Like I said, I promise to give her no more chocolate! Oh dear - we had quite a scare after she became so ill!"
- Lilly R.
"I can recommend your Detox caps for anyone whose pet is showing signs of sluggish, lack of energy and hair that is falling out. I have tried it for both my dogs and it has been great! By the way - one of them has arthritis and seems much improved - could this also be the Detox caps? Thanks to all of you who help me when I phone or email! You are such a blessing to me and my family (including the furry ones!!!!)"
What are the Ingredients?
Fucus vesiculosis (Kelp) is known as a sea ‘vegetable’ and is a concentrated source of minerals, including iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron. As a source of iodine, it assists in the production of thyroid hormones, which are vital for maintaining healthy metabolism in all cells of the body as well as regulating your pet’s body temperature. Regular use will also improve skin and give your pet’s coat a healthy shine.
Aloe ferox: This plant was used more than three thousand years ago by Indian healers to treat obesity and has been depicted in paintings and hieroglyphics on the walls of Ancient Egyptian temples. An effective digestive tonic, regular use of Aloe ferox helps to regulate bile flow, ensuring the breakdown of dietary fat. Aloe ferox also helps to ensure regular bowel movements and is useful in the treatment of a wide range of conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, circulatory disorders, arthritis, stomach ulcers, hypertension and joint inflammation. Modern science has established that this succulent is also rich in nutrients and contains 18 amino acids as well as Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C and E. Now that’s natural goodness!
Medicago sativa (Alfalfa) is rich in nutrients including calcium, magnesium, potassium and beta carotene. It is regarded as an effective diuretic (promotes healthy urination), helping to prevent bloating and assisting in the removal of toxins from the body. Like Aloe ferox, Alfalfa also helps to ensure regular bowel movements – keeping your pet regular and preventing toxin build-up in the system.
Arctium lappa (Burdock) is invaluable as a cleansing and purifying agent, especially when there is a buildup of toxins, leading to skin and coat problems, digestive sluggishness and arthritis. Furthermore, this plant helps to regulate blood sugar levels and is a natural antibiotic, keeping your pet’s immune system strong, to ward off infection and illness.
Taraxacum officinalis (Dandelion) contains bitter principles which have a beneficial effect on the liver and digestive system. Arguably one of the most important organs in the body, healthy liver functioning ensures regular elimination of toxins and poisons from the system and supports strong immune systems. Dandelion is also a rich source of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, D, C, various B Vitamins, iron, lecithin, silicon, potassium, magnesium, zinc and manganese. It enhances liver and gall bladder functioning and may decrease high blood pressure due to its diuretic properties.
Rice Powder: inactive ingredient
Detox Plus contains no gluten, artificial flavours, colours or preservatives.
How do I use Detox Plus?
Detox Plus comes in convenient capsule form. Capsules may be swallowed whole by larger dogs. However, most owners find that it is easier and more convenient to open the capsule and mix the contents with wet food (or a small healthy treat!).
If it proves too difficult to get any medicine down your cat’s throat – you may try to simply open the capsules and mix the dried herb with a little fish or meat for easier ingestion.
Dosage: A three week course is recommended and can be repeated when necessary.
Cats and small dogs: 1/2 capsule twice daily.
Medium dogs: One capsule twice daily.
Large dogs: One to two capsules twice daily.
Caution: Safety during pregnancy and nursing has not been established.
How long until I see results?
Results will vary depending on factors like diet, exercise and the general health of your pet. During the 3 week course you should notice an increase in energy levels, an improvement in coat condition and a generally happier and healthier pet!
Regular exercise and a healthy diet (see Sr. Cathy’s Advice below) will further enhance your pet's health, as well as the effectiveness of Detox Plus.
How long will a bottle last?
Depending on the size of your pet, one bottle of Detox Plus should last from 15 - 60 days.

Exercise, exercise, exercise! A good ball throwing session in the park, or a catnip mouse ‘seek and destroy mission’, will benefit your pet – and give you a good, healthy workout too.
Make sure that your pet has plenty of clean, filtered water. Cats can be fussy drinkers and may only want to drink from a running tap, out of your glass of water or from rain puddles – (such is the finicky feline).
Animals in the wild, as well as many domestic animals, will naturally fast if they are feeling ill. Fasting gives the digestive organs a rest and allows the body's energy to focus on renewal, detox, repair and fighting disease. (So don’t freak if your pet skips a meal or two and are otherwise healthy! However, if they don’t eat for more than 48hrs, it is best to consult your vet).
Ensure your pet is eating a balanced, high quality diet with plenty of raw and unprocessed food, (preferably organic), and avoid onions as they can be toxic to animals.
Try and limit the use of pesticides and herbicides and make your house a no smoking zone. Your pets need to have healthy lungs as well – and the whole household will benefit!
Talk to a holistic vet before immunising your pet. Conventional over-vaccination may stress the immune system unnecessarily and negative side effects may occur.
Food and water bowls should be made of glass, stainless steel or porcelain and not plastic. Make sure to wash your pet’s water bowl and food bowls regularly, using hot water. Make sure to rinse them well, so as not to leave any harmful chemical residue behind.
Ignore those begging eyes when it comes to chocolate! It may seem like a good idea, but chocolate is toxic to pets. (A far better use for that box of chocolates would be the human contingent at your favourite vet!)
