Diet and your pets imune system

Sunday, January 1, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Just like our immune system, your pets immune system is working all the time.  It wards of viruses, bacteria and other foreign invaders that could make your pet sick. If any of these foreign matters break through your pets system, a cellular fighting force is deployed to destroy them. Your pet needs a vigorous immune response to survive and what they eat plays an important role in your pets immune system.  That’s why your pet’s diet needs to be balanced in terms of certain nutrients such as proteins and fats as well  as key vitamins and minerals like zinc, selenium and vitamin C. Too much of one element could be just as detrimental as too little.  Ask your veterinarian for a recommendation.

Remember, your pets count.
