MoldsHerbal remedies for dogs and cats exposed to mold.

Herbal remedies to help support immunity as well as skin and respiratory health in dogs and cats exposed to mold.

The immune system is a complex array of cells that are found throughout your pet’s body. Immune cells are designed to function in conjunction with one another to provide a fortified defense against unwanted invaders. It is an intricate system that keeps your pet healthy and protects them against all sorts of invaders including allergens, viruses, bacteria, microbes, parasites and toxins.

The immune system is also directed at facilitating normal function and is not intended to be suppressed or stimulated. In cases of dysfunction, an animal body requires whole body systemic support. If your pet’s immune system is weakened, every bodily system is at risk.

Black mold, also known as Stachybotrys chartarum, contains mycotoxins that can make people and animals very sick. Black mold is typically found in dark corners and hides in cabinets in the days, months and even years after a house has been flooded by water or id present in human climates or humid environments, such as basements.

Toxic mold is extremely dangerous. It can pose serious health problems to both people and animals, causing long term respiratory damage due to the presence of mold spores in the lungs, other health issues and even death.

If your house has even a minor amount of black mold in it, you may notice that your dog or cat exhibits strange behaviors without explanation, including difficulty breathing and scratching or chewing their extremities or skin. Often, it is assumed to be allergies.

Symptoms of mold reaction and exposure include:

Respiratory problems

Wheezing

Coughing

Struggling to aspirate

Lack of appetite

Extreme lethargy

Bleeding from the nose

Respiratory difficulties and illnesses are the most common reactions to black mold poisoning. When an animal is exposed, it causes respiratory duress and lung trauma. The lung capillaries become weakened, rupture, hemorrhage and result in death unless detected early.

Historically, it was thought that black mold did not affect pets the same way as humans. That assumption has since been proven false as black mold has been detected in a number of animals, causing premature deaths due to pulmonary hemorrhages.

Mold abatement must be carried out in homes where black mold is detected.
