The immune system is a complicated thing. It is made up of several body parts which is why making sure your dog has a healthy immune system can be complicated as well. Maintaining immune health is a matter of trying to keep the whole of the system in balance with itself as well as in balance with the animal as a whole. There are a couple things that you can do on a daily basis that will help maintain your dog’s immune system.

Exercise – an easy-to-implement activity that has proven to have direct benefits for the immune system. In addition, the muscle activity helps cleanse the body of toxins and helps to move important components of immunity from one part of the body to another. You don’t have to do anything extensive here. Just make sure to take your dog for a walk every day or throw a ball around. It’s that simple.

Nutrition – The immune system demands good nutrition. Conversely, a diet deficit in any of the necessary nutrients will almost certainly cause immune-related disease. Specific nutrients that are indicated for immune-system health include: vitamins A (beta-carotene), C, E, and B-6; zinc; selenium; linoleic acid; and lutein. Making sure that your dog’s food has these nutrients will only benefit them.

Sleep – You probably pay attention to your own sleep habits, but have you paid any attention to how much sleep your dog gets? Just because your dog seems to nap often doesn’t mean he’s getting good, deep, restful sleep. Instead, he’s dozing in a light sleep from which he can awake at the slightest sound. At night, many dogs assign themselves the job of night watchman and patrol the house. Others will stay in the bedroom with you, maybe even on the bed, but again are alert. A lack of sleep can be just as damaging for your dog as it is for you.

Supplements – Another way to keep up with your dog’s immune system is to add a supplement that helps aid in a healthy immune system. Super Snouts Super Shrooms does just that. Super Shrooms is an immune boosting supplement that features 7 USA grown organic mushrooms. These mushrooms are natural “immuno-modulators”, which means that they are able to go into the body and adjust the immune system either up or down depending on the condition or issue. This all natural supplement helps detoxify the body by assisting in neutralizing toxins. It is beneficial for assisting in reducing inflammation and improving overall health.
