While we should consider ways to improve your dog’s immune system year-round, it’s always the winter months where we tend to worry the most. Likely due to our own immunity related illnesses in winter and the push for pet flu vaccines. Here are some natural ways to improve your dog’s immune system:
- Food – Your dog’s diet is the foundation of good immune health. Nutrition is not a one-size-fits-all solution. The best way to ensure your dog is eating an optimal immune-strengthening diet is to consult your veterinarian.
- Exercise – A fit dog is one of the best ways to boost immune health and promote overall health.
- Natural Supplements – To increase the effectiveness of your dog’s immune system consider supplementing diet with probiotics, fish oil, and anti-cancer ingredients: turkey-tail mushrooms and curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric). Consider our immunity support line: CannaShroom Immune Supporter w/ Five Mushroom Blend or our CannaShroom Immune Supporter w/ Turkey Tail Mushroom for more serious immunity needs such as cancer.
- Massage – Touch, massage, and similar methods are beneficial for dogs because they promote relaxation and healing, which, in turn, affect overall health and immunity. If you’re in the Salt Lake City /Park City area, we use The Dog’s Dive for Dave’s dogs and love them.
