Did you know that healthy dog food can be unhealthy for your dog if it’s not the right ‘temperature’? According to Eastern Food Therapy (EFT), some dogs need ‘warming’ food, others need ‘cooling’ food, and healthy dogs can eat ‘neutral’ food.
‘Temperature’ makes all the difference. Giving your dog the wrong ‘temperature’ food may lead to health and behavioral problems.
Here are the top 5 signs your dog needs a ‘cooling’ diet:
- Excessive Panting
- Frequent Itching
- Seasonal Allergies
- A Bright Red Tongue
- Aggressive Temperament
Does your dog exhibit these signs? If so, your dog typically runs too ‘warm,’ which means they have too much yang energy in their body. In order to balance this out, your dog will benefit from foods with high yin, or ‘cooling,’ energy.
Here are just some of the ‘cooling’ foods that can help bring your dog’s body back into balance: rabbit, duck, duck liver, duck neck, pork heart, pollock, spinach, celery, kelp, apples, chamomile, chia seeds, barley, and alfalfa grass.
Adding more of these whole, clean, raw foods into your dog’s diet can help strengthen their immune system, counteract dry heat and inflammatory conditions, reduce and eliminate itching and panting, and make their digestion smoother.
