Fight Dog Diarrhea With IgY Antibodies

Fight Dog Diarrhea With IgY Antibodies

Immunoglobulin Y (IgY) is the major antibody produced by chickens and has been proven to be a successful treatment for a variety of gastrointestinal (GI) infections in dogs and other pets. IgY antibodies fight a number of commonly seen pathogens in dogs, including strains of E. coli, salmonella, coccidiosis, canine parvovirus (parvo) and much more. A common symptom of these stomach ailments is dog diarrhea, often severe, and IgY antibodies have been shown to significantly decrease such gastrointestinal distress. Intesto-Guard™ utilizes the positive benefits of IgY antibodies in its paste and powder products, helping to restore gut health and boost immune systems.

Comprehensive Protection

Intesto-Guard’s triple protection formula combines the power of prebiotics, probiotics and IgY antibodies (PPA) to safely help your pet with digestion, immunity and overall health.

Intesto-Guard’s IgY antibodies help prevent diseases caused by many pathogens in the GI tract. The natural immunoglobulins, derived from chicken egg yolks, are specific antibodies that function as part of the immune system. They bind and fight off invading pathogens in the body and are produced from a unique process utilizing modern technology.

Immunoglobulins are used as the last, most powerful line of defense against foreign organisms that invade the body and have been used in livestock to enhance gastrointestinal health for the last 20 years.

IgY Antibodies and Parvo in Dogs

Parvo in puppies is a serious and highly contagious disease that affects the GI tract. It spreads through direct contact with a dog infected with the virus or by indirect contact with objects/matter contaminated with the virus. If left untreated, it can be fatal. Parvo is just one example where studies have shown that IgY antibodies possess the ability to decrease the potency of the virus thereby reducing its ability to infect host cells as well as suppress the spread of infection and even prevent death. This antibody-based approach aids in disease diagnosis, therapy and prevention, and is why it is a key ingredient in Intesto-Guard’s pet supplements.

It is very important to get your puppies vaccinated. Certain dog breeds face an increased risk of infection by parvo, including:

  • Rottweilers
  • Doberman Pinschers
  • American Staffordshire Terriers
  • English Springer Spaniels
  • German Shepherd Dogs
  • Labrador Retrievers

Contact your veterinarian immediately if your puppy is vomiting and/or has diarrhea and you suspect that it could have parvo. The sooner a dog is diagnosed with the virus, the higher the probability of recovery.
