Efficient Ways to Improve your Dog's Immune System

Your fur-baby's immune system is made up of a network of organs, tissues, and cells that collectively function together to protect the body from foreign bodies (substances, organisms, viruses, bacteria, etc.) that cause diseases.

The role of the immune system in your dog's life is vital and it is your responsibility as a pet parent to help improve your fur-baby's immune system. Fortunately, there are a number of easy and safe steps you can take to strengthen your dog’s immune system.

Encourage active play

Dogs are active in nature that's why being active plays a vital role in their health. A fit dog also means a healthy immune system. Active play like running, chasing, catching the ball, etc promotes healthy well-being for your dog. Why? Because stored excess fats weaken the canine immune system as it releases an array of hormones promoting inflammation. But remember that the exercise/s you allow your dog to engage in is approved by your vet, considering his breed, age, and overall health. For your fur-baby who struggle a little more to be active, you can give him Pet Parents® Hip and Joint supplement that help maintains healthy joints and help promote mobility support to your fur-baby.

Offer the right kind of foods

All dogs are different but they all need the right kind of food to help strengthen their immune system. Offer your dog a healthy and balanced diet containing a reasonable amount of protein, fiber, live bacteria from fresh fruits and vegetables, etc. But sometimes, proper nutrition preparation can be expensive and can take a couple of hours from your daily hustle and bustle that's why you should...


Supplementing will provide your fur-baby the right nutrients he needs to meet and maintain a strong immune system. This can include immune supporters like probiotics that contain colostrum which is rich in antibodies that help ward off diseases and multivitamins that will provide your fur-baby with beneficial ingredients like a variety of vitamins (Vitamin A, C & E) that help provide antioxidant support, for your your dog to live a happier, healthier life.

Keep Vaccines Updated

Vaccination is a way to protect your dog from certain illnesses. It prevents diseases that can be passed between animals and also from animals to people and is one of the best possible ways to prepare your dog's immune system to prevent diseases.

There are a lot of efficient ways to help improve your dog's immune system. You know your dog best and you know what fits him best for that happy and healthy life ahead.
