Canine Immune System Support By Standard Process | Healthy Dogs Naturally

By Dr. Candy Akers

Check out this info I have pulled together on the results that I typically see with Canine Immune Support. I use this supplement in my patients a lot.

This review is based on my personal and professional experience. I like to help rescue pets whenever I can and medical cases often work their way to me. Rescue pets frequently face huge immune system challenges and I think the superfoods and extra minerals in Canine Immune Support have a significant positive effect for these pups. This product made by Standard Process is easy to use because it is tasty and dogs loooove to eat it.

The following information is a summary and review based on Dr. Candy’s professional experience and recommendations. Any summary or statement has not been provided nor influenced by the manufacturer.

  • High parasite load
  • Administration of multiple vaccines / medications / procedures
  • Parvo infections

Canine Immune Support Benefits

Dr. Candy's Pro-Tip: I have seen extremely fast recovery from infections in puppies when I use Standard Process Canine Immune Support. I believe it allows for lower doses of antibiotics and other medications. I use it in all of my rescue puppies and kittens.

More About Canine Immune System Support

The immune system is a complex array of cells that are found throughout the body. Immune cells are designed to work in conjunction with other cells to provide a defense against unwanted invaders. The complexity of the immune system requires a multidimensional approach of nutritional factors. The nutritional support of the immune system is directed at facilitating normal function and is not intended to be suppressive or stimulating.

Canine Immune System Support is formulated to:

  • Provide nutritional and biochemical support for healthy immune cells and tissues
  • Support optimal immune system function.*

Indications for Use: 

  • General immune system support
  • Colder climates or during the fall/winter months
  • When kenneled or in a shelter

How to Administer

Dose Schedule: Based on body weight, the canine patient should receive the canine formula powder according to the following recommendations, or as otherwise directed.


Special Information:

A 1/8 tsp scoop is included with the small canine powder bottles, and a 1/2 tsp scoop is included with the large canine powder bottles.

Since these supplements are made from super foods, they are very "rich". This allows us to use small doses, but sometimes when adding a brand new savory food pets can experience a soft stool for 12-24 hours. This situation balances itself but I have found that using a gradual taper greatly reduces the chance of loose stool.

Caution: This product is processed in a facility that manufactures other products containing soy, milk, egg, wheat, peanut, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish.

Please consult the actual product label for the most accurate product information.

Our dog Maddy has been fighting mange since we got her over a year ago. Our vet recommended this product to support Maddy's immune system. She's finally off the mange medication and mange free! We are continuing to use Standard Process to support her immune system.

Great product. We have a Great Dane with IBS and a coonhound that is hypothyroid with allergies. Using these under the direction of a holistic veterinarian has solved the IBS and aided the hypothyroidism/allergies. We've been using these for about 10 months without incident.

Our 10 year old mixed breed dog had two bouts of cancer and after we had a rather invasive surgical procedure we went all natural on her food and supplements. She acts like a puppy again, really!

This powder has helped my dog recover from immunizations since she was a puppy. Additionally, it nearly completely abates her allergy symptoms which included green, goopy eyes and itchy skin. It's a simple and cost-effective supplement.

Questions & Answers

What are the side effects of Canine Immune Support?

Since these nutritional supplements are made from food, there is little to no risk of side effects. The only side effect I’ve ever seen is diarrhea if the pet gets a gigantic dose. For example, if a pet eats a whole bottle. If I had a dollar for every time one of my pets ate a whole bottle, I’d have a pretty full piggy bank. Since pets love these products so much, we recommend keeping them in a cabinet or someplace that your pet cannot get to.

How much Canine Immune Support should my dog take?
  • 1-10 lbs 1/8 teaspoon once per day
  • 11-20 lbs 1/8 teaspoon twice per day
  • 21-40 lbs ¼ teaspoon twice per day
  • 41-60 lbs ½ teaspoon twice per day
