Mushrooms for Dogs & Cats

Like cannabis, medicinal mushrooms have been used for plant-based therapy for thousands of years. Every medicinal mushroom has unique healing properties, but nearly all share the ability to activate the body’s immune system. Benefits can be attributed to mushrooms because of their variety of full macro-nutrient profiles, polysaccharides (alpha/beta-glucans), and other detoxifying metabolites.

Mushrooms for Dogs & Cats serve as a catalyst in modulating the immune system by activating macrophages, neutrophils, basophils, and every other immune-system-cell in the body. They are also reported to lower cholesterol levels, improve blood-sugar levels, and inhibit the spread of weakened immune cells.

Health Benefits of Medicinal Mushrooms for Dogs & Cats

Both the fruiting body and mycelium provide a synergistic effect on our pet’s health, much like the theory in cannabis known as the Entourage Effect. “The whole is greater than sum of it’s parts” is an important concept when it comes to botanical and natural supplements. This idea is what differentiates these functional foods for pets from traditional medicines.

Pet parents also need to have clarity on the sourcing of their mushroom supplements, as most of the mushrooms for dogs and cats are being sourced overseas. Additionally, contrary to marketing from other mushroom products, beta-glucans are not the only ingredient in mushrooms that provide immuno-modulating activity for our pets. Both the fruit body and mycelium have shown to produce immuno-modulating benefits in the same way other fermented foods do like kombucha or kimchi. Therefore, when considering natural remedies for dogs and cats, using the full-spectrum of medicinal mushrooms will always be the safest and optimal way to promote your Dog or Cat’s health.

All of our mushrooms are sourced in the USA from a USDA organic facility that are triple extracted in order to concentrate the immuno-modulating compounds. This process also makes the mushrooms for dogs and cats more bioavailable when ingested. We also are the only company that 3rd-party lab tests our mushrooms to show purity and potency. Other mushroom supplements for cats and dogs typically do not share this information.

Every mushroom comes with its own unique set of healing abilities, but here’s a list of the most common benefits of medicinal mushrooms:

  • Activates Immune Cells (like Macrophages & Neutrophils)
  • Boosts Energy and Balances Mood
  • Increases Antibody Production
  • Promotes Better Digestion & Improves Apppetite
  • Promotes Healthy Inflammatory Response
  • Helps with Seasonal or Dietary Allergies
  • Enhances Focus and Concentration
  • Promotes Adaptive Response with Stress
  • Balances Histamine Response
