We all want to support our dogs’ immune systems and make sure their bodies are in balance, without resorting to harmful synthetic drugs. Thankfully, there are many options for supporting our pets naturally, including our favorite adaptogens! In this episode of Your Natural Dog with Angela Ardolino, we’re joined by Dr. PJ Broadfoot, integrative veterinarian of 40 years, who advocates for natural medicine, and believes if you give the body the right tools, it can take care of the bulk of problems by itself.
