Boosting Immune System for Dog

366 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  rainsmom
My dog has a kidney ailment called Glomerulonephritis (see link)

They think she has this, just by process of elimination bc they would have to do a biopsy to know for sure. THey did do lab work to eliminate a few other things.

ANyway, she will be on prednisone and a special diet....but wondering if anyone knows of homepathic or herbal remedies to boost the immune system and help her kidneys heal.......and to aid her while taking prednisone.

She should be on folic acid to help counteract the negative effects of the pred. As for immune system boosters, there are a couple I like. I use Solid Gold Seameal and I've just started a new one called Cell Tech Amimal Matrix, it uses blue green algae
I don't know anything off the top of my head, except for mabye Geri-zyme. But I did want to recommend: It is actually written by our vet who practices traditional and homeopathic medicine for pets. He also does accupuncture! There is a great reference at the back that lists different herbs/medicines and the proper dosages. I hope your pooch is feeling better.
