The immune system is not intended to be suppressed or stimulated. Herbal nutrition may help enhance the growth of healthy cells and tissues in the body’s defense mechanism, may help limit inflammation pathways and promote smooth muscles, which is critical in cases of respiratory allergies.

Balanced immune health may also help protect healthy cellular response, help 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 allergy is related to an infection of the nose, throat and upper airways. A respiratory allergy can cause dogs and cats to 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.

Respiratory allergies are one of the most common types of allergies. These allergies are caused by inhaled substances and will cause respiratory symptoms such as wheezing, sneezing, nasal discharges or coughing.

Some animals are more sensitive than others; and pets with other allergies are more likely to develop respiratory allergies due to the fact that allergies are a disease of the immune system. A pet with a weak immune system develops allergies.

The symptoms of respiratory allergies may vary and all animals will not present the same symptoms. Common triggers include dust mites, second hand smoke, mold, pollen, grass, tree particles and chemicals.

Common symptoms include:

Nasal and ocular discharges (a clear transparent discharge)

Sneezing

Wheezing

Coughing

Panting

Respiratory problems 

Other suggestions:

Feed your dog an all natural, high quality diet, free of corn, wheat, soy, chemical additives and preservatives to not undermine your pet's immune system

Provide clean, filtered water daily.

Make sure your pet gets plenty of playtime and exercise. 

Keep kennels and living areas clean, dry and disinfected.

Ensure that your pet's living areas are well ventilated and that there is ample air flowing through from the inside to outside.

If your dog or cat has a respiratory disease, do not allow them to have contact with other animals due to risk of infection. 

Avoid sharing your pet's food and water bowls as well as toys.

Add immune-boosting supplements as part of your pet's daily diet.

Conventional Remedies:

The diagnosis of a respiratory infection is based on your pet’s symptoms as well as a physical examination.

Your vet will prescribe medications such as antibiotics to clear and prevent secondary bacterial infections as well as decongestants to relieve congestion. Keep in mind that antibiotic drugs reduce and weaken the immune system which makes you’re your pet more susceptible to recurring infections. Your pet should also receive annual vaccinations against viruses and bacteria to protect them against infection and boost immunity.
