|Marley yeah echinacea is a good one but best for acute or short term use at the first sign of poor health if possible.
I think it's important after antibiotics to give probiotics. For immune health, you could use prebiotics also. The digestive system is in sync with the immune system so probiotics will do a great deal to help his body get back in balance and keep him overall healthy.
I'm new to learning about this still but Chinese medicine (herbs, mushrooms) have gotten my attention recently when they were used to cure a dog's skin allergies. The more I read about them, the more I want to consider them up there with other natural alternatives. Chinese medicine is centered around the immune system, but there are so many to choose from. Like is Marley suffering allergies or is this a type of kennel cough? Would help determine which ones. I'm thinking this is kennel cough right? The way he continues to sneeze though I wasn't sure.
There's also turmeric, spirulina, bioflavonoids, garlic..more that I'm not remembering.. but whichever you choose, the foundation for a good immune system is good diet, limited stress and chemicals, and exercise..imho if you save money on supplements and spend it on the best diet you could afford that is going to do much better than the supp. (except acute times)
