Colostrum can help with canine allergies, leaky gut, the canine flu, wound healing and cancer. There are over 1,000 clinical studies on the benefits of colostrum. Bovine (or cow) colostrum was commonly used to treat infections and other issues before sulfa drugs and antibiotics were discovered. And it can still be used today as a safe and effective antibiotic and probiotic.
If you buy a pre-made colostrum, you will want to follow the instructions on the label for feeding amounts. Here is an average dosage: 1/3 teaspoon powdered form per 25 lbs body weight twice daily or for small dogs and cats: 1 cap twice daily Medium to large dogs- 2 caps twice daily This recommended dosage is for one month minimum, then give colostrum as needed!
Colostrum contains a hormone called Proline-Rich-Polypeptide (PRP). This hormone can either stimulate an under-active immune system or, in the case of allergies, down-regulate an overactive immune system.
