Our Dogs are healthy and wishing you all a blessed Holiday!

Shadow, our Labrador, was tested for Valley Fever;  his test results and xrays are negative. :)  This is the best Christmas Holiday present I could receive!

If you live in Arizona, you and your animals will most definitely come in contact with Valley Fever fungi.  A strong immune system will defeat Valley Fever just like it would the flu.  The mucous membrane linings of the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary tracts provide one of the first lines of defense against invasion by microbes. Internal defense mechanisms for the immune system include the Lymphatic system, Thymus gland, bone marrow, spleen, white blood cells and antibodies.

Happy Holiday Dog!

I’ve learned quite a bit regarding an animal’s immune system and the importance of keeping your pet healthy.

Trigger, our Jack Russel, is currently on medication for Valley Fever.  He is doing great and running around the house like a puppy!  Valley Fever is treated with anti-fungus medication.

The immune system is your cat’s, dog’s, bunny’s, etc…  PROTECTOR.   It is the immune system’s job to respond to infectious challenges and antigenic stimuli from the outside world without destroying the host animal itself.  My intention is to offer my pets the best food for their immune system so I’m currently researching products and herbs.
