Your Dog’s Immune Function: How to Help Build a Strong Foundation

To date, over 2,000 dogs are enjoying the benefits of supplementation with Vivamune Health Chews. And while the response has been great, it’s left many pet parents scratching their heads wondering how such a tiny little tablet can have such a positive impact on their pet’s skin/coat quality, shedding and mobility.

Supporting immune function is key to your dog’s optimum health!

The strength of a structure depends heavily on the strength of the foundation upon which it is built. Even a seemingly insignificant flaw can have disastrous consequences, compromising the structural integrity and putting the structure at risk of tumbling down.

In organisms, such as companion animals and humans, the structural integrity of the body is heavily dependent on the proper functioning of the immune system. A poorly functioning immune system not only puts the organism at risk for major disease, but also creates a situation where the body is unable to properly control inflammation.

Believe it or not inflammation is critical to survivial.

The inflammatory process is a complex and protective biological response aimed at ridding the body of harmful stimuli, such as pathogens, and initiating the healing process.

Though inconvenient at times, the inflammatory process is critical to survival; without inflammation wounds and infections would never heal.

When inflammation runs amok the results can be disastrous – but you can help your dog regain control.

When everything is functioning optimally, the inflammatory response is able to do its job effectively and protect the body.  However, sometimes it happens that the very system that protects the body can become its worst enemy.

So what causes the inflammatory response to go out of control and what can you do to prevent it?

The truth is that we’re just starting to learn about the biological significance of this system and it’s effects on overall health. What we do know is that stress is the body’s worst enemy, compromising immune function and jeopardizing health and wellbeing.

Newsflash: Stress is bad – even for our canine companions!

Anything that the body encounters that forces it to work beyond its normal capacity can be considered stress. This includes not only psychological factors but physical ones as well.

Obesity is, by far, the number one stress that our pets are subjected to and the consequences of those few extra pounds can be devastating. Add to that environmental pollutants and dietary deficiencies and you have the perfect recipe for deficient immunity.

While physiological stress can be difficult to avoid (you can’t exactly stop your pet from breathing polluted air) you can help ensure your pets health and wellbeing by doing your best to help strengthen their immune system. That means encouraging a healthy body mass index and feeding a healthy and balanced diet.

But even the best laid plans can go astray which is why it’s important to look to other ways to help your pet’s immune system stay strong and healthy.

And that’s where Vivamune Health Chews come in. 

Vivamune Health Chews support your dog’s immune system to keep it functioning optimally. Vivamune has been shown to support the immune system leading to an improvement in overall health and a reduction in the inflammation associated with skin and mobility issues such as arthritis and allergic dermatitis.

With less energy being wasted on attacking healthy tissue, the body is able to more effectively utilize nutrients and energy leading to increased enjoyment in daily activities such as walking and playing.

Young, healthy pets can benefit from Vivamune too! A healthy pet that takes the supplement will not exhibit any outward signs of improvement but rest assured that on a cellular level the immune system is primed and ready to spring into action at the first sign of trouble.
