What is colostrum and what does it do?
Colostrum is a type of milk produced by mammals during the early stages of lactation. It is often referred to as “first milk” and is incredibly rich in nutrients, antibodies, and other immune factors that protect newborns from infection by providing passive immunity.
How long does colostrum take to work on dogs?
Colostrum can take hours, days, or even weeks to start working in a dog’s system. Dogs will typically see results a month after taking it. However, it’s important to allow enough time for the benefits of colostrum to kick in. Once colostrum effects take place, it can be very effective at supporting a dog’s immune system and helping protect against various diseases.
Why is colostrum so important for puppies?
Puppies are born without immunity to diseases, so colostrum helps give them a necessary immunity boost when they’re most vulnerable. Without enough colostrum, puppies can become more susceptible to diseases and may even die. That’s why it’s important for mother dogs to have plenty of colostrum available for their pups after they give birth and for breeders to have colostrum on hand in case the mother does not produce enough.
How much colostrum should I give my dog?
The amount of colostrum your dog needs will depend on several factors unique to your pup. However, most dogs will generally need between 5-10 mg of colostrum per 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of body weight. Our Immune Support Soft Chews for Dogs contain 100 mg of colostrum per chew, along with other essential ingredients to support your pup’s immunity.
