I didnít subscribe to the mailing list, maybe Iíll register. You can use charcoal where you can get it at pharmacies or Chinese herbal shops. You've to feed it alone with water only. Food isn't allowed because it'll deter your pup/dog from absorbing the nutrients from the food, while at the same time, the charcoal couldn't clear the toxin properly. I used to have powder charcoal that bought from Korea, but it has finished. So now, I'm using the tablet form. For powder form, you've to feed to your pup/dog preferable 2 hours after/before meals. For tablet form, it's at least 3 hours. Anyway, you can crush the tablet 'till it became powder - I do this for Munji. The air is polluted, so even not because of the medicine, you can still feed charcoal to your pup/dog.
Other form of detoxification is usually through fasting & feed your pup/dog on water only. If we want to feed the food, then feed on simple food & in smaller portion & at longer interval so that the organs can digest the food quicly & don't need to work so hard, while at the same time have the time to clean the systems.
Other type is through using herbs like dandelion, burdock, etc - it's part of the daily supplements, but I'm not sure whether you can use human supplements from the shelves for your pup/dog. You should check with the herbalists from hollistic/homeopathy centres.
I guess they recommended starflower oil was because it contains higher GLA than primrose oil.
