Does your pet suffer from a weak immune system? Is it always coming down with infections? Or has your dog, cat, or other pet recently suffered an illness or been on a drug that reduces the potency of its body's immune response? Certain natural remedies can help boost your pet's immune system and protect its overall health.
Infections, parasites, and certain genetic conditions can weaken your pet's immune system, leaving it more vulnerable to infestations and illnesses of all kinds. Antibiotics can help fight off infections that are already present, but better yet is to strengthen the immune system slowly and naturally before an infection occurs.
Home Remedies: Pet owners report that a number of natural foods and supplements can help support and even boost your pet's immune system (though every breed and species is different). Garlic (use cautiously with dogs), a raw foods diet, and astragalus are among the most commonly recommended immune supporters for pets.
