How To Fight SuperBugs

Pets get superbugs just like people do. Pets can get a chronic infection that just keeps coming back. Superbugs in pets occur when bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites develop the ability to resist the effects of the antimicrobial drugs (such as antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals) that were designed to kill them. This can occur when a pet gets a chronic infection and needs recurrent antibiotics. The number of reported cases of superbugs is increasing in both cats and dogs. One such bacteria is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius (MRSP), similar to MRSA in humans. If your pet is getting chronic infections, it could be due to their diet. Feeding a low carbohydrate, hypoallergenic diet can often help along with using a few immune support supplements like probiotics, Olive Leaf Extract and Immune Harmony.
