A key ingredient of healthy immune function is good nutrition, or simply put, what a dog eats. “What a dog eats impacts overall health,” says Ebenezer Satyaraj, Ph.D., Purina Senior Research Scientist. “Because the immune system and metabolic system, being essential for survival, co-developed during evolution, a dog’s diet has a significant impact on his immune health, both positive and negative.”

Immunonutrition is an emerging field that evaluates the impact of diet on immune function, particularly the diet of an individual dog in relation to his or her health condition.
