What product is recommended to PREVENT canine distemper? Vi-Pro Plus by Pet Alive seems to be for treating an animal with the virus.
I have a 9 year-old Shepherd mix that has been vaccinated for Canine Distemper Virus in the past. Her titer is showing a bit low so I am trying to keep her protection up even though she is low risk.
Thank you for your inquiry to Holistic Pet Info. Canine distemper is currently primarily a disease of puppies and immune compromised animals in shelters and pet stores. Since she has had vaccinations in the past, she should still be somewhat protected, even if she showed a low titer.
Vi-Pro Plus by Pet Alive is primarily used as an immune booster for a preventative and during an outbreak secondarily as a treatment. It should support your dog’s immune system to help prevent distemper infection. Additional immune support can also be supplemented with antioxidants, a whole food well balanced diet and omega 3 fatty acids. Best of luck.
