Respiratory Infection

Herbal remedies for cats and dogs with colds to relieve canine and feline respiratory infections.

The complexity of the immune system requires a multidimensional approach of nutritional factors directed at facilitating normal immune function and is not intended to be suppressed or stimulated, to enhance the growth of healthy cells and tissues in the body’s defense mechanism for  all types of arthritis, cancer and tumors, to protect healthy cellular response, to protect against invasion by potential allergens and pathogens, for most types of viral and bacterial diseases and diseases and for all types of inflammation and auto immune diseases.

A respiratory infection is an infection of the nose, throat and upper airways and affects pets just like they do when humans suffer from colds, flu, and chest or sinus problems. Although respiratory infections tend to be more common in cats, dogs are susceptible to them as well.

There are various types of respiratory infections and these include feline rhinotracheitis, feline calici virus and chlamydia in cats or kennel cough in dogs. Respiratory infections are contagious and are spread through direct contact with an infected dog or cat.

This condition may develop suddenly, from time to or be persistent. If left untreated, respiratory infections may develop into secondary bacterial infections as a result of a weak immune system. These infections are most common in young or elderly pets, those that are stressed and have suppressed immune systems.

The common symptoms and signs of respiratory infections include:




Runny nose or eyes


Loss of appetite
