When Vata dosha is dominant, dry, rough and cool qualities tend to increase in our pet’s external and internal environments.
External factors like seasons, humidity, stress, toxins etc can impact our pet’s internal dosha balance. For instance, Vata tends to increase during fall and early winter. So Vata and Pitta dominant dogs are more likely to have a Vata imbalance during this time.
Internally, eating inappropriate foods, ingestion of chemicals, age etc., can impact the balance of the doshas.
