Did you know...?
Your animal is exposed to toxins every day. And these toxins can have a negative impact on your pet's health.

The more toxins your pet is exposed to, the higher their toxic load, and the greater chance they have of experiencing health issues and ageing prematurely.

When you reduce your animal's toxic load, you'll be helping them to achieve a better state of health. 


Toxins come in all shapes and sizes and your pet will be exposed to them via the food they eat, the water they drink, the supplements or medications you give them, the products you use in your home and so on.

Sure, we're exposed to toxins too, but cats and dogs suffer a greater impact. This is because of factors like their size, compressed life span, behaviours etc. This means that the risk of your pet getting sick from toxin exposure is much higher than it is for you.

But you don't need to freak out, because I've got your back.

In Low Tox Pets, you will learn about the sources of toxins that your pet is exposed to, the impacts of these toxins and discover strategies for reducing the toxins that are impacting your pet's health and longevity.

"I loved everything about this course!"

Having the call replays to watch was great. All the written resources are fantastic to refer back to when needed.

Why is now the time for you to reduce your pet's toxin exposure?
  • According to a study done by the Environmental Working Group in 2008, pets are polluted with even higher levels of many of the same synthetic industrial chemicals found in people, including newborns.

  • Chemicals that have been detected in pets include carcinogens, neurotoxins, chemicals toxic to the reproductive system, and chemicals toxic to the endocrine system.

  • Pet food is considered the main contributor of exposure to glyphosate (a known carcinogen) in cats, dogs and horses.

  • Most pet food packaging is made from plastics, which can be a source of phthalates, hormone disruptors and more.

  • Flea and tick medications commonly contain isoxazoliones - chemicals that block nerve signals - and permethrin. These are neurotoxins that can impact the functioning of the thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas and reproductive system.

  • Chemical residues that aren't eliminated by the body can increase your pet's toxic load. The higher the toxic load, the higher the chance your animal has of suffering from various health issues, including liver damage, gut issues, allergies, immune deficiencies, and even cancer.

Does your pet have a health issue?

Having a high toxic load can reduce your pet's chances of becoming ill. If your pet has allergies, skin issues, gut issues, respiratory issues, a compromised immune system, hormone issues etc, the toxins they have been, or are, exposed to, could be a contributing factor.
