Strengthening Your Dog’s Immune System

strong immune system - nuvet supplements
The canine immune system functions exactly like a human’s — as the first line of defense against harmful carcinogens, viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Immune system disorders weaken the body’s resistance to these pathogens and the diseases they cause; therefore, it’s not hard to see why a robust immune system is vital to your dog’s overall good health!

Certain nutrients act as immune system boosters and should be included in your dog’s diet on a daily basis. These nutrients include beta carotene (the precursor to Vitamin A), which is a powerful antioxidant that strengthens the skin and mucous membranes against invading microorganisms, annihilates carcinogens, and generally supports the dog immune system. The Vitamins C and E also destroy free radicals and carcinogens and serve as overall immune system enhancers. Vitamin C assists in the production of white blood cells and interferon, the body’s own antiviral substance. The minerals selenium and zinc, when combined with Vitamin E, further protect the body from immune system disorders, free radical damage, and tumor development.

When discussing the dog immune system and tumor prevention, you cannot overlook the power of shark cartilage, one of the most potent immune system boosters around. It stimulates immune system activity, fights infection, and as clinical studies have shown, helps to shrink tumors by preventing the formation of blood vessels that nourish them.
Some amino acids play an important role in immune activity by stimulating the antioxidant properties of certain enzymes and by protecting the skin and coat from parasites and microorganisms eager to infiltrate the dog immune system. L-methionine is particularly effective at destroying free radicals, detoxifying heavy metals contained in airborne pollutants, and enhancing the bio-availability of selenium and zinc.

Certain nutrients contain properties that prevent or alleviate immune system disorders like arthritis and rheumatism. Two herbs, alfalfa and cat’s claw (una de gato), help reduce inflammation related to these two immune system disorders; cat’s claw also stimulates white blood cell production and fights viral infections. Pine bark, which is extracted from pine trees and contains a natural blend of bio-flavonoids, actually packs a stronger antioxidant punch than even Vitamins C and E. It slows the effects of aging by greatly diminishing oxidative damage to skin and joints as it neutralizes free radicals.

NuVet Plus® from NuVet Labs® includes a unique blend of the above nutrients and other vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and herbs to protect your dog’s immune system from free radicals and harmful microorganisms and pathogens.
