The latest news about the dog flu spreading throughout the U.S. is alarming for pet owners, but there are steps that can be taken to help your dog stay healthy by using an integrative approach to wellbeing including diet, exercise, and natural supplements to keep the immune system strong.

“Prevention is key,” says Patra de Silva, President of  NHV Natural Pet Products , which produces a line of herbal supplements formulated by a holistic veterinarian and master herbalists. “When there is an outbreak, try to minimize contact with other dogs at places like dog parks, kennels and groomers. Maintaining a healthy immune system can help to prevent illnesses and reduce the severity of the flu in your dog. Herbal supplements work to facilitate the body’s innate healing response. They can also be combined with conventional medicine and other alternative therapies.”

NHV Natures Immuno with highly effective medicinal mushrooms and NHV Stimmune, which contains herbs with antibiotic properties, help boost the immune system and provide excellent support for overall pet health. NHV Felimm is particularly useful with the recent outbreak of the flu virus, as the herbs contained in this blend are known for their antiviral properties.
