21 Best Natural Immune System Boosters for Dogs
2. Avoid social isolation
Again, we can draw a parallel between humans and dogs. Dogs are social creatures, just like us. Leaving him alone in the backyard or apartment will depress him, which will decrease his immune system function. He needs to be with friends most of the time for his immune system to function best.
Making sure your dog is not alone and isolated is important not only for his mood (and consequently his immune system, because it’s all connected) but also because, for dogs, company usually means physical activity – games and exercise. Regular physical activity, tailored to your dog’s specific needs (depending on his size, breed and overall health), is a tremendous natural immune system booster. Also, a dog who spends most of his time isolated will be more prone to germs and infections once he accidentally encounters them, because they will be almost unknown to his immune system and it will have no way of battling them.
