Wholesome nutrition is the key to maintaining a healthy immune system and resistance to disease. Commercial foods ingested by animals on a regular basis may not be balanced in terms of major nutrients, minerals and vitamins, and some continue to add chemicals to the final product to enhance its stability and shelf-life. Nutritional deficiencies or imbalances as well as exposures to various chemicals, drugs and toxins present a continual immunological challenge which can suppress immune function, especially in those animals genetically susceptible to immune dysfunction (immune deficiency, autoimmunity, allergies). *Nutrition and the Immune System *Nutrition and Thyroid Metabolism *Nutritional Management (Commercial, Home-Made and Raw Food Diets) *Raw Food Diet Study *New Diagnostics for Food Sensitivity or Intolerance
