Help Balance Your Cat’s Immune System
One of your cat’s first lines of defense against illness and disease is the immune system. This complex system consists of white blood cells, antibodies as well as other substances that normally protect and fight against harmful agents such as:

How Your Cat’s Immune System Works
First, the cells of the immune system identify the external agent. This can be a virus, bacteria, fungus, or foreign object. Then the body gets to work protecting itself from attack.
Antigens are the substances that stimulate an immune response in a cat’s body and can be in or on bacteria, viruses, cancer cells, and other microorganisms. These antigens can also exist in two different ways:
- On their own as pollen, contributing to airborne allergies
- As food molecules, contributing to food allergies
At NHV, our wide range of holistic immune support for cats can help encourage a healthy response to food allergies as well as easing the allergy symptoms.
Once a foreign invader enters the body, white cells may attack the invader, or the antibodies may damage the invader directly.
Stress that comes daily as well as with aging can affect the immune system which may become compromised and suppressed. Other contributing factors include:
- Insufficient or incorrect diet
- Toxins the environment
