Five Natural Ways to Improve Your Dog’s Immune System

Coming home to a happy, healthy pup with a shiny coat and wagging tail is a delightful sight to watch – Isn’t it?

But many pet parents nowadays are struggling with the malfunctioning immune system of their dogs. For this reason, dogs of Indian breeds are getting adoption preferences worldwide.

Breeds of Indian dogs are intelligent, low maintenance, and have a relatively stronger immune system, as their immunity is not tempered like pedigreed ones.

However, as a devoted pet parents, whichever dog breed we have – Indie or pedigreed, we all want to keep them healthy. – Isn’t it? By checking the given below points we can answer this question of how to boost your dog’s immune system.

5 Natural Ways to Boost Your Dog’s Immune System

1. Play with Your Dog & Make Them Exercise

The best way to keep your dog fit is to play and have adequate exercise. It burns unwanted fat cells, improves blood circulation, lowers stress, and oxygenates the whole body. In short, take them to a dog park and have fun.

Let them feel good and happy running around with you!

2. Give them a Balanced Diet

Don’t overfeed your dog with bacon snacks, and give table scrapes or people food!

If you want your cuddle-buddy to stay fit and healthy, take a few minutes to make a nice healthful, balanced meal for them. Follow the ‘Doggie Food Pyramid’ –

1. Protein
2. (Healthy) Fat
3. Carbohydrates
4. Vitamins
5. Minerals

You can also talk to a vet or an animal food specialist to set a diet chart best suited as per your pet’s breed.

3. Keep An Eye On The Hydration

Compared to breeds of Indian dogs, pedigreed breeds like Siberian Husky or Saint Bernad can have more dehydration issues if they live in a tropical, humid climate. It affects their immune system adversely.

Whichever dog breed you have, make sure you give twelve ounces of water per ten pounds of the body weight of your dog daily to keep them well hydrated.

4. Go For Nutritional Supplements

To increase the effectiveness of the immune system, introduce healthy nutritional supplements in the diet of your dog. These supplements are all-natural and holistic, which you can find in any pet store or on online pet health websites.

To Boost immune system functionality and overall health, add canine probiotics and omega fish oils to your pet’s diet.

Your dog will surely enjoy the yummy all-natural salmon flavored treat chew!

Now, let your dog enjoy the healing powers of massages. The moderate pressure of massage can enhance the immune functions of your dog.

So, let them relax and boost their immunity!
