For acute immune issues or daily cat/dog immune support, Pet Immune Plus is a specially formulated powder that contains three important immune supporting ingredients:
- Del-Immune V®
- colostrum powder
- whey protein powder -(See below).
Each ingredient is chosen for its immune-boosting properties so that, when combined, the Pet Immune Plus powder provides comprehensive immune support for dogs and cat breeds.
Providing immediate immune system support to sustain your pet’s health
Just like people, our pets experience immune issues caused by stress in their lives. While our human reactions to stress may be obvious, immune system problems for our friends are much more subtle. But according to Dr. Steven Sanderlin, DVM, when a pet is under stress, immune support is one of the FIRST areas of their health to be affected.
Stress in pets is caused by many things, such as being separated from you, being given a different diet, having to cope with other animals (or humans), or simple changes in regular routines. Ex-rescue dogs have undergone acute trauma in their work; other adopted pets may have had similar experiences leading to stress. Poor nutrition and infections also contribute. Stress can be tough on non-complaining pets.
Thousands of dogs and cats have been taking Del-ImmuneV* every day for years. As a matter of fact, many of the earliest impressive health improvements due to this product were seen in pets which had not responded to standard treatments but resolved of their difficulties quickly on Del-Immune. Now we have developed an even more effective product, based on Del-ImmuneV*, which combines it with two other immune-supporting ingredients: colostrum powder and whey protein powder. You’ll find technical details under About Pet Immune Plus, but this is what you want to know about these ingredients:
DEL-IMMUNE V* POWDER
A natural immune modulator, Del-ImmuneV* acts as a first responder when innate (primary) help for the immune system is needed. It’s the same product we use in our doses. As a user, you know that this product contains cell fragments from a special strain of lactobacillus, a type of probiotic used for decades in Bulgaria, Russia, Ukraine, and USA to provide immediate support to the immune system. These cell fragments contain biological substances: muramyl peptides, DNA, and amino acids; they account for the stimulation of the primary immune support. Del-ImmuneV* sustains your pet’s daily immune response, starting an immediate attack on any foreign invaders.
FIRST-MILKING COLOSTRUM POWDER
This important ingredient of Pet Immune Plustm sustains the secondary, or adaptive, immune system. It’s rich in essential peptides that enhance immune health. Colostrum has been known to be essential to the immune system ever since the first investigations of this biology. First-milking colostrum has especially high levels of immunoglobins (lg) and proline-rich polypeptides (PRP’s) which are required for normal development and maintenance of immune health. Immunoglobulins are antibodies which attach to foreign invaders in the body, setting them up for destruction by the immune system and thereby sustaining health.
Colostrum works by educating or modulating the immune system so that the host recognizes specific antigens and foreign invaders and then alerts the system to respond to the attack.
Colostrum is an ingredient in the first milk of every mammal mother, which is why breast-feeding is so important in humans – animals do it naturally. As in human babies, colostrum protects the health of newborn puppies and kittens, which is why some say that the mother’s first milk is very much like “a baby’s first vaccination.”
In fully-grown pets, the PRP’s boost and modulate the mature immune system. Also known as info-peptides, PRP’s can signal an increase in immune activity, calling for an attack against viruses. Colostrum also contains antibodies, proteins and enzymes which boost your pet’s immune function.
The raw colostrum supplied to our powder producer meets the 2003 Pasteurization Milk Ordinance (PMO) and is only collected from Grade A dairies. It is then tested to assure that it meets first-milking requirements.
WHEY PROTEIN POWDER
Although the use of whey protein by athletes for body-building has been criticized, it has amazing immune-boosting properties, especially for our animal friends. It is easily digested and serves important functions in the body. Many studies have shown the efficacy of whey protein not just for immune support, but also for strengthening of muscles in both animals and humans. It also contains a high level of cysteine, an amino acid which increases glutathione, essential to normal performance of the gut, where 70% of the immune system function occurs. Whey protein is GOOD for your pet!
Del-Immune V® is an immune modulator for Immediate Immune System Support: Animal research conducted at the Institute of Microbiology, Kiev, Ukraine demonstrates Del-Immune V® rapidly initiates immune activity involving interferons.
Interferons attack the pathogens that are foreign to the pet which include virus, pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Because the product is derived from the family of lactobacillus (yogurt is a family member), it is non-toxic. As immune modulators, the immune system will be activated as needed and turned off when not needed.
Instantized Whole Colostrum Powder – APS Biogroup
APS 45-18FI (45% minimum Ig, 15% minimum IgG) is an agglomerated, instantized pasteurized full cream, whole colostrum powder produced from first milking only. APS 45-18FI is processed both at low pressures and temperatures and is spray dried using indirect steam to maintain maximum bio-activity. The colostrum used to produce APS 45018FI is from antibiotic free sources. Instantizing makes it water-soluble and ideal for drink-mix, tablets and dose applications. This product contains non-GMO, non-allergenic sunflower lecithin so that it is also considered to be free of soy allergens.
Suggested applications include: immune system enhancement, nutritional supplementation, digestive health improvement, and protein supplementation.
