Natural Immune Boosters for your PetPart Two Here are two supplements you can give to your pet to help boost their immune system. If I had to pick one, probiotics would be the easiest to give and something almost all our pets need in their diet. If you find that your pet’s immune system needs a boost, medicinal mushrooms can be very beneficial and easy to add to their diet.  PROBIOTICS:About 80% of your pet’s immune system comes from his gut.

Your dogs and cat’s immune system starts with their diet and environment. There are supplements and herbs that can support their immune system, but diet should be looked at first.Is your pet eating a biological appropriate food? If you are only feeding a dry food, even of the highest quality, this is not a good diet for your pet. Dry food is cooked at 460 degrees. It keeps your pet in a constant state of dehydration and has two known carcinogens that can cause cancer.  So, I understand that there are situations when you need to feed......

And feeding higher amounts of omega-6 fats......

Here is an article about pet obesity and pet foods that......

We are currently looking to see if there is a more holistic way to treat cataracts.  We will be trying some suggestions given to us and I will follow-up in a few months as to any......
