1 YEAR 9 MONTH OLD LHASA APSOS WITH BORDETELLA CAN VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS HELP WITH CONTROLLING

June 10, 2014

Can vitamin supplements help with controlling bordetella. My dog seems to get this a lot & the intranasal spray the Vet gives her help for only a little while. She doesn't get around other dogs except my dog. Mostly stays in the house. Eats good we feed her Purina One-chicken & rice. She is a l year 9 month old Lhasa Apsos. Any advice will be appreciated.

Hi Renee,

Some dogs do not have a very healthy immune system, and it may take a couple of years to properly develop or it may never be great. The nasal inoculation may only provide short term immunity in these dogs. I would suggest you try a jar of my Everyday Health formula to help support the immune system. Added vitamin C is also ok to use with the supplement. I would also see that your dog got some fresh air and sunshine. The diet is most likely just fine. The addition of some fresh chopped broccoli would also be good. Hope this information helps you.
