FAQs

Harness the power of the 'master antioxidant'.

Glutathione is a tiny molecule that plays a big role in preventing damage to your pet’s cells. It’s so important for fighting free radicals and maintaining cellular health that it’s called the “master antioxidant.”

Free radicals are the culprits in a destructive process called oxidation. Free radicals are unstable molecules that travel throughout your pet’s body, searching for electrons to steal from stable molecules.

When they succeed, they generate new unstable molecules – and create more free radicals.

This process can cause damage to your pets’ mitochondrial DNA. Antioxidants, such as glutathione, clean out free radicals, helping to strengthen the mitochondria – which is where the cell’s energy is generated – and keep their cells healthy.

Glutathione helps support your pets' livers and kidneys by removing free radicals from their cells, strengthening their organs’ ability to remove toxins from their body.

Dr Karen Becker further adds that Glutathione is made of three amino acids, including glycine, which she also includes in Bark & Whiskers™ Detox Support. By boosting glycine levels, your pets’ bodies have more of the raw materials they need to generate even more glutathione on their own.

This roadside weed delivers big benefits for your pet's liver and kidneys.

A tall, prickly weed with a brilliant reddish-purple flower, Milk Thistle grows easily along roadsides, in pastures and in ditches. The seeds of this hearty plant are widely valued for their ability to promote liver and kidney health.

The main active constituent of milk thistle seed is silymarin, a flavonoid compound with potent antioxidant properties.

Dr Karen Becker states that milk thistle is one of the most studied botanicals in the world and that she has chosen to include milk thistle in Bark & Whiskers™ Detox Support for its ability to:

  • Help protect your pet’s liver against toxins.
  • Support your pet’s immune function.
  • Promote free radical scavenging in the cells of your pet’s liver and kidneys.
  • Help preserve glutathione, by binding to substances that reduce glutathione.

Research also shows that milk thistle promotes many positive effects throughout your pet’s entire body and not just his liver and kidneys.

Moderate amounts of milk thistle have been found to be safe for animals.*

*Important note: If your pets are on prescription medications or receiving medical therapy, please ask your vet beforehand if Bark & Whiskers™ Detox Support or any other liver or kidney supplements for dogs or cats are appropriate for them.

This common lawn weed provides a healthy 'bitter tonic' for your pet's detox system.

If your lawn is free from herbicides, chances are you may have brilliant yellow dandelions growing there right now.

The Dandelion plant, Taraxacum officinale, is loaded with beneficial compounds. While the plant has a bitter taste, every part of it is edible.

The leaves contain potassium, a mineral that plays a role in the ability of your pet’s kidneys to filter toxins. They also contain polysaccharides, which support the production of bile in the liver.

Dandelion leaves also contain a compound called taraxasterol, which can help promote a normal, healthy inflammatory response.

Dandelion, like many of the bitter herbs, stimulates and supports liver and gallbladder health. It may also help optimise blood flow to your pet’s kidneys.

Dr Becker states that she has added dandelion leaf extract to Bark & Whiskers™ Detox Support so our pets can take advantage of all these benefits.

*Important Note: If your pet is allergic to plants in the Asteraceae family, such as daisies, sunflowers and chrysanthemums, talk to your veterinarian before using Detox Support or any liver and kidney supplements for cats and dogs containing the same.

The polyphenol that promotes DNA repair.

In the 1990s, the health community began learning about a unique polyphenol with distinctive anti-ageing effects. And it has become more interesting the more it’s studied.

It’s called Resveratrol, and it’s another potent antioxidant that supports your pet’s detoxification system.

Resveratrol activates a class of genes called sirtuin proteins. SIRT proteins are crucial for many cellular functions, including DNA repair, detoxification and energy production in your pet’s body.

Resveratrol is found in dozens of plants, including pomegranates, raspberries, and Japanese knotweed. This antioxidant is produced as part of its defence system against environmental stressors.

It may come as no surprise, then, that it can help protect your pet’s liver and kidneys from environmental stressors.

Dr Becker has also included resveratrol in her Bark & Whiskers™ Detox Support formula because it helps the liver "clean house" by flushing away unwanted fats, promoting optimal function.

As most pet owners realise, grapes are hazardous for dogs. For that reason, Dr Becker sourced the resveratrol in this formula from Japanese knotweed instead of grapes.

The amino acid Taurine is important for liver and gallbladder support in both cats and dogs, but especially for cats.

It plays an important role in optimal blood flow, cardiovascular health and the production of bile in both cats and dogs.

But it is essential for cats.

While most mammals are able to make their own taurine from other amino acids, a cat’s ability to do this is limited.  So your cats require large amounts of it in their diets.

Taurine supports your pets’ lipid profiles – levels of cholesterol and triglycerides – which helps protect their livers and support healthy function.

Pets with less-than-optimal levels of taurine may be at greater risk of adverse effects from toxins, as they may struggle to produce the bile salts necessary to excrete toxins out of their bodies.

Although a minimal level of taurine is included in most commercial pet foods, it’s not always sufficient to meet the needs of cats. Furthermore, taurine is easily depleted in stressed pets.

By including taurine, your cats get extra insurance to help their livers keep functioning the way nature intended.

The final eight ingredients in Bark & Whiskers™ Detox Support are highly regarded for their usefulness in supporting liver and kidney health. They are:

  • Phosphatidylcholine (PC) helps support a process known as methylation.

    Pets' bodies are equipped with powerful stress hormones. Adrenaline and noradrenaline help your pet through a crisis. However, chronic exposure to these hormones can be unhealthy. The faster your pet can get rid of these hormones once they are no longer needed, the better.

    The process of getting rid of these hormones is called methylation. PC is required for this process of breaking down and eliminating these hormones from your pets' bodies, thereby easing the workload on their livers and kidneys.

  • Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), another potent free radical fighter, is an enzyme found in all living cells.


    As your pets age, the number of free radicals they encounter can challenge their bodies’ natural levels of free radical-quenching SOD. Supplementing with SOD can help support their free-radical fighting system.

  • Green Tea leaf extract's catechins help protect cellular DNA, according to scientific research. For your pet’s well-being, Bark & Whiskers only use decaffeinated green tea leaf extract for this formula.

  • NAC is a cellular antioxidant that boosts your pet's tissue glutathione levels. NAC protects against oxidative stress and is a potent free radical scavenger.

  • Schisandra fruit supports liver function by stimulating liver enzymes.

  • Curcumin is what gives turmeric its yellow colour. This potent antioxidant supports your pet's liver and kidney health.

  • Chlorella supports your pet's normal detoxification processes.

This great product - Detox Support for Cats and Dogs is provided via our exclusive partner, Bark & Whiskers, where Dr Karen Becker, one of the most followed wellness and integrative veterinarians in the world, shares the most up-to-date information on species-appropriate nutrition and care.

Dr. Becker

Just like Furchild, she believes that the food and lifestyle choices you make for your pets form the foundation of their health and longevity.

Moreover, Dr Becker is also the first veterinarian to give a TEDx Talk on species-appropriate nutrition. 

She enjoys empowering pet parents and helping them become knowledgeable advocates for their pets’ well-being. Instead of simply addressing the symptoms, Dr Becker promotes the use of functional medicine, which involves making dietary and lifestyle choices to help pets thrive and prevent illness.

And in 2021, she also co-authored with pet influencer, Rodney Habib, to publish their book - The Forever Dog, which became the first-ever No.1 New York Times best-selling book about intentionally creating canine well-being.

More Info

Your pets’ livers and kidneys do a lot of the “heavy lifting” required for maintaining good health in their bodies.

Responsible for nutrient absorption, waste removal, mineral balance, pH balance and much more, they play leading roles in keeping your pet healthy and active.

The liver performs over 500 vital functions, including filtering toxins out of the blood, producing essential proteins and vitamins, converting waste products so they can be excreted and converting nutrients into energy.

And their kidneys are involved in many crucial functions, including regulating the mineral balance in their bodies, filtering water-soluble waste and toxins, and managing their blood pressure.

With all they have to do, these three organs – one liver and two kidneys – carry the lion’s share of responsibility for detoxification in your pet’s body.

The cells in your pet’s liver and kidneys are constantly at work. And they need support to stay strong and do their jobs well.

You might think of those cells as a small-scale version of your pet’s whole body. After your pet spends a whole day working or playing hard and comes back in worn out – and sometimes dirty. That’s when they need food, water and a good bath to replenish their energy.

Their livers and kidneys are like that. They work hard, and they need their own version of food, water and cleaning to replenish their energy… or they can get worn out and become less efficient, exposing your pet to a number of potential health risks.

Today, more than ever, your cats and dogs need robust liver and kidney support as they come into contact with a never-ending list of environmental toxins.

With the heavy toxic load you face from chemicals in everything from most processed pet foods, treats sold on the market (kibble and canned foods), tap water, air pollution and lawn treatments, and even to the carpeting and fabrics in your home, their detoxification system has to handle a lot more than their dog or cat ancestors’ ever did. 

A report from the Environmental Working Group found that American pets' blood and urine are polluted with high levels of many of the same chemicals found in the average human.

Only, the chemical levels in pets are even higher.

For dogs, blood and urine samples were found to be contaminated with a total of 35 chemicals. Cat samples contained a total of 46 chemicals.

These chemicals included carcinogens, neurotoxins and chemicals toxic to the reproductive and endocrine systems.

Whatever the source, whether incidental or unintentional, toxins and chemicals can accumulate in your pet's body.  If your pets are young and healthy, their bodies can typically clear away those toxins and wastes through their natural detoxification systems – the liver and kidneys.

Your pet’s liver is considered the most important detoxification organ in their body. It operates under a two-phase system:

  • Phase I breaks down environmental toxins and wastes in the body.
  • Phase II neutralises and prepares toxins for excretion.

The kidneys function in close conjunction with the liver. They take blood that comes through the renal artery and filter it through nephrons, where the beneficial substances are separated from the waste products.

To support these vital processes, your pet's body requires an ample supply of nutrients, antioxidants and cofactors.

Age, stress, injury and a host of other contributors can result in less than optimal detoxification for your pet. Sometimes, the build-up of toxins simply becomes too great for their liver and kidneys to handle.

If toxins and waste can't be removed through normal detox processes, several problems can arise, including:

  • Your pets’ bodies attempt to remove the excess toxins through their skin, resulting in itchy, scaly and dry skin.
  • Your pets’ bodies try to shed toxins and waste through mucous membranes, leading to eye discharge, teary eyes or a runny nose.
  • Your pets’ bodies store the overload of toxins to be handled later.

Toxins and unwanted waste that aren’t removed can remain and build up in your pet's body, potentially leading to less-than-optimal health.

When your pets are under stress, the nutrients that assist their detoxification process can become depleted too, exposing their bodies to even more potential damage from environmental factors.

The good news is that there are several things you can do to support your pets’ livers and kidneys, to help them maintain good health and stay active:

  • Feed a fresh, species-specific diet, like Furchild Meals
  • Provide plenty of opportunities for exercise.
  • Help them maintain a healthy weight.
  • Choose natural health support to minimise drug exposure and over-vaccination whenever possible.
  • Reinforce their diet with antioxidants and nutrients targeted for liver and kidney support. Furchild Meals formulations are formulated with this in mind.  

Even if you aren’t able to provide a 100% fresh food diet, they can benefit greatly from these other proactive approaches. And even adding any amount of a balanced fresh food diet into the bowl helps.

A proper diet is the main line of defence for protecting your pet’s liver and kidneys. 

Dr Karen Becker also recommends feeding a natural, species-specific raw or lightly-cooked diet for most pets. Balanced fresh food diets like Furchild Meals resemble nutrient-dense ancestral diets.

These are the foods that our pets have evolved to eat.

Looking at what our cats and dogs eat in the wild gives us important clues as to which types of foods your pets' bodies are designed to eat, and where the bulk of their nutrition should come from.

Meat should be the main source of your pet’s nutrition, with small amounts of vegetables and fruits included for dogs.

Although carbohydrates form the basis for most commercial pet foods, cats and dogs aren't well-equipped to digest them. High-carb diets deprive your pets of the nutrition they should be getting from meats and vegetables – and it may also raise their risk for liver and kidney issues.

For the same, Dr Becker strongly recommends that you avoid feeding your pet dry kibble/biscuits or semi-moist pouch food, whenever possible.

Even if a fully fresh diet isn’t a possibility for you, your pet can benefit from toppers or treats made of real fresh raw pet food.

Water is an important defence for protecting your pet’s liver and kidneys. 

It’s also important to pay attention to your pets’ water. To reduce the toxic load their liver and kidneys have to process, provide your pets with fresh, filtered water.

Tap water often harbours a variety of toxins, including chlorine, microbial contaminants, herbicides, pesticides, lead and other heavy metals.

By providing clean, filtered water, you reduce the work their livers and kidneys have to do.

Lastly, giving your pets the benefit of regular daily exercise is another line of defence for protecting their livers and kidneys. 

Daily exercise assists your pets' normal detoxification processes in several ways:

  • Stimulates blood to help remove toxins and waste from cells, tissues, and organs.
  • Helps move lymph fluid to carry toxins to the liver and kidneys, where they can be safely eliminated from the body.
  • Promotes regular bowel movements to move toxins and waste through the digestive tract in a timely manner to help prevent reabsorption.

Regular exercise is essential not only for the normal function of your pets’ livers and kidneys but also for help in maintaining a healthy weight, another key to reducing unnecessary strain on their detox system.

The foods you feed are critically important for maintaining the health of your pet's kidneys, liver and overall well-being.

Here are some of our most popular menu items: 

Furchild Meals 

Feeding a high-moisture diet, and a healthy diet is crucial. Commercial dry pet food (kibble and biscuits) is very stressful on the kidneys, which can exacerbate your pet’s dehydration. The high level of carbohydrates/toxins in dry pet foods (preservatives, artificial colours, etc.) makes the kidneys work harder. The kidneys flush toxins out of a pet's system, and the harder they have to work, the more unhealthy they become.

In comparison, Furchild Meals support healthy liver and kidney functioning by reducing their workload. They contain high-quality proteins, optimal moisture, and no chemicals, additives, fillers, or species-inappropriate ingredients, which are crucial for kidneys to efficiently filter waste and maintain a healthy urinary system without straining it.

Bone Broth

Provides essential hydration and contains glycine, an amino acid that helps detox your pet's kidney and liver. It can be added to any pet food diet as a meal topper or served as a treat. 

Raw Goat Milk & Kefir

It benefits your pet's liver and kidney health due to its nutrient content, hydration support, and potential anti-inflammatory properties.

Grass-fed Beef Green Tripe

It has a high moisture content that provides proper hydration of internal organs. Plus, it has low phosphorous levels and the calcium-to-phosphorous ratio is 1:1. And it is easily digested with nutrients and probiotics.

If your pet has been diagnosed with kidney disease or liver disease by a veterinarian, we recommend that you contact our qualified pet food advisors. They will be able to provide personalised recommendations that are appropriate for your pet's specific needs.
