Colostrum is the first milk produced by mammals, the 24 hours following childbirth. It is an
extremely important component of an infant’s immune system andoverall health. Mothers passalong important antibodies in the colostrum that help protect theinfant from infectious agents, and can even help prevent allergic responses.
Benefits for Dogs
Colostrum has all the same benefits for dogs as it does for people. It is especially useful for helping to reduce allergic reactions in dogs. Dogs can have allergic responses to a number of different things, and it’s not always easy for us to detect specifically what is causing the allergy. Colostrum contains praline-rich polypeptide, which helps soothe or eliminate symptoms experienced during allergic reactions. It is thought to suppress the release of white blood cells and T-cells, which are responsible for the
immune system’s response to allergens. Colostrum may also contain antibodies to common allergens, to build resistance.
