Dietary supplement for dogs to support their natural immune defence system
• compensation of the immunity gap (= the body’s own immunity is not yet completely developed) in kittens after weaning and in young cats
• immune suppression in older cats
• Stress due to living conditions
• lack of vitality and immune resistance after illness (reconvalescence/recovery)
• Sensitive cats or cats kept exclusively indoors with inadequate “natural training” of the immune system

FeliImmun® Tabs supplement the cat’s diet in a targeted manner with nutrients known for their supportive effect on the general feline immune system: Brewer’s yeast (content: 28%) is a natural complex of various active substances that have a positive influence on the immune system. • Natural enzymes (--> vitality in kittens/young cats) • vitamin B complex • choline (--> liver protection) • folic acid (--> formation of white blood cells/antibodies) • Glutathione (--> antibody formation) Special cell wall components of brewers’ yeast (ß 1.3/1.6 glucans) have a proven positive effect on the immune system overall. These natural carbohydrate compounds, found only in yeasts and fungi, are ingested by cats in the wild via their contact with the soil. Their positive, direct effect on the activity and efficacy of the white blood cells in the defence against infectious pathogens has been proven in extensive studies on various types of animals as well as humans over a period of more than 10 years. The reason for the stimulating effect of the glucans on the body’s own defence system is the fact that the white blood cells (macrophages) are equipped with receptors able to detect and bind ß-1.3- und ß-1.6 glucans. The contact with the glucans stimulates them to form various cytokines (mediators). These then support the defence reaction of the entire body. This effect of the glucans is enhanced when combined with vitamin C. Vitamin C (supplement 15,000mg/kg) is not produced in sufficient quantities by the cat’s body in stressful situations or in conditions of extreme stress. It is essential for maintaining leukocyte function and for limiting the effects of stress on the body. Quantities by the dog if it is under stress. High-quality animal proteins support protein metabolism, the optimal functioning of which is essential to the immune defence system.
Use and dossage: Giving the correct dosage of FeliImmun® Tabs is very easy. For an adult cat weighing 5 kg, simply give 3 –4 tablets as “rewards” over the course of the day. Treatment should be given for at least 4–6 weeks. Repeat treatments at 14-day intervals have a positive effect on sensitive cats. Young animals can be given FeliImmun® Tabs from the fifth week to the end of the growth period.
