Support Your Dog’s Immune System
The immune system is one of your dog's first lines of defense against illness and disease. This complex network of antibodies, white blood cells, and other infection-fighting elements jump into high gear to protect your pet from threats.
The Immune Systems Controls
- Inflammatory agents
- Degenerative and reproductive disorders
The immune system will identify “self” from “non-self,” to isolate the foreign substances, viruses, chemical agents and other “non-self” invaders to protect itself from attack. Antigens are the substances that are confined within or on foreign agents that stimulate an immune response in your dog’s body. Antigens can also exist on their own as pollen or food molecules. Our immune support supplements for dogs are safe to be given along with any vet prescribed medications.
How Your Dog’s Immune System Works
The immune system includes organs such as the thymus gland and bone marrow where the white blood cells are produced. Other immune system organs include:
It is in these immune system organs where foreign substances and microorganisms are trapped. These organs also provide a place for the cells of the immune system to interact with those invaders as well as each other to generate an immune response.
Once a foreign invader enters the body, a few things occur within the immune system.
- White blood cells may attack the invader.
- Antibodies may damage the invader directly or alert the white cells to attack
The dog immune system supplements at NHV are formulated by veterinarians with 20+ years experience and will help balance and support the immune system.
