Immune System Support for Dogs: Stella


SUPER: REAL STORIES
PROVEN. NATURAL. NUTRITION.™ Stella: Immune Support Beth: My name is Beth. I work here at the
distillery. This is my dog Stella, and I’m a lifelong dog rescuer. I’ve rescued probably
countless dogs in my life, and she was in one of the worst shapes I’ve ever seen a
dog in. The day I met Stella, she appeared like many
dogs do around here with a pack of feral dogs and, unbeknownst to us, was pregnant and proceeded
to have seven babies in a woodpile here. We brought them all out individually and set
them in a room here for several weeks until her health really started to take a turn for
the worse. Stella had mange. The babies had caught mange. She had three types of worms,
including heartworm. Her hair had all fallen out. You could see pretty much right through
her. She was very nutritionally deficient and probably did not have long to live actually. I decided to come up and get her and all the
puppies and take them to the vet. The vet was able to confirm that her time as a feral
dog had taken its toll on her immune system, and she was not able to fight off any of the
parasites. The heartworm was progressing pretty quickly, and what fur she had was brittle
and falling out. SUPER: Essential Nutrients for Immune System
Health Male Voiceover: Like Stella, dogs that are
found or rescued often lack complete nutrition. This means that they don’t receive all of
the essential nutrients they need to maintain proper health and support their immune systems. SUPER: Complete, Balanced Nutrition Male Voiceover: Complete, balanced nutrition
is the cornerstone to building, restoring and maintaining a dog’s health and wellness.
By taking Stella to the vet, Beth learned which issues needed professional treatment
and which could be addressed through proper feeding. SUPER: Real Proteins
Zinc, Linoleic Acid & B Vitamins Whole Grains & Antioxidants Male Voiceover: When looking for a high-quality,
natural dog food, consider one with real animal protein as the first ingredient. To promote
healthy skin and a soft, shiny coat, find a formula with guaranteed levels of zinc,
linoleic acid and B vitamins. It should also have nutrient-dense whole grains for proper
nutrient absorption and antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, to support your dog’s
immune system. Beth: Many of us absorb the dogs that we save
here, and Stella ended up with me. All her babies did too for a while until we could
get everyone healthy and adopted out. After her initial vet visit and she’d been
getting the food that she probably needed her whole life, we started to see her show
signs of her immune system coming back. This gorgeous coat started to fill in. She started
to act like a young dog finally. You know, she had been so worn down and so sick. It
was just like night and day. Like I don’t think we ever could have imagined how she
turned out. Her whole personality changed once she got healthy again. SUPER: The makers of NATURAL CHOICE® Dog
