There is still a lot to learn about COVID-19 and its interaction with our cats and dogs. While it will be some time before we fully understand the effects, new research suggests that certain pets, notably cats, can contract the virus and possibly transmit it. Now, more than ever, it is important our pets have a healthy immune system. HEMPVET immunity remedies (for dogs & for cats) coupled with a high-quality diet offer a strong defense during these uncertain times.
Is your pet showing signs of gastro-intestinal distress, nervousness, destructive behavior, spontaneous activity, behavioral problems, or fear? These stressors could be indications that your pet has an unhealthy immune system.
What causes a weak immune system? The primary driver of a weakened immune system is poor gut health caused by improper diet, illness, bad water, parasites, environmental stressors, hormonal imbalances, heavy metals, and certain medicines. To make matters worse, when your pet's gut is not well balanced, the problems associated with an excess of harmful bacteria can go beyond digestive ills, affecting blood sugar, weight, heart function, bronchial passageways, skin, coat, and even your pet's attitude and behavior.
What can you do to boost your pet’s immunity? Diet is the number one factor – pet parents should consider every item that is fed to their pets and consult with their veterinarian, professional animal nutritionist, or other qualified individuals. It is also important to address the potential of unwanted reactions with pet’s medications, age, weight, pregnancy, and other conditions.
Beyond diet, what other actions should I take? Once your cat or dog’s diet has been optimized, pet parents should consider HEMPVET’s immunity supplements in standard and high-potency formats. Our HEMPIMMUNITY soft chews combine our broad-spectrum, non-GMO hemp complex, including naturally occurring CBD, with our proprietary Immunopeptide™ developed by a board-certified animal nutritionist, to support immune system health, resistance to pathogens and free radicals, and defense against occasional or seasonal allergies, while contributing to the overall balance and harmony of the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Why HEMPVET? HEMPVET pet remedies are uniquely designed to be used synergistically with high-quality food, water, and health care to promote optimal nutrition and provide optimal gut health. Every pet can have a healthy immune system that maximizes its ability to survive and thrive in a world of challenging health and environmental situations. Be well!
