Secret Benefits of Turkey Tail Mushroom for Dogs and Cats

Herbs For Pets 3 min read

Ever wondered about the benefits of turkey tail mushroom for dogs and cats? This fascinating fungus is not only beneficial to us, but it also holds the potential to support your little one’s health and well-being. Studies have even shown that this mushroom benefits many types of cancer! That’s why, today, we are giving it the spotlight it very much deserves. Let’s jump straight to it!

First Thing First: What is Turkey Tail Mushroom?

You can usually spot turkey tail mushroom (Trametes versicolor or Coriolus versicolor) in regions with a lot of woods. They thrive on tree trunks! The mushroom stands out due to its vibrant colors and special shape resembling a turkey’s tail feathers – thus, the name. 

History of Trametes Versicolor

This medicinal mushroom has its roots in ancient Chinese and Japanese medicine. For millennia, people have used turkey tail mushroom to address various health conditions. Its historical significance traces back to the Han Dynasty  (around 200 BC) and the Ming Dynasty (15th century). While initially a part of Eastern practices, the Western world has also recognized its merits through clinical trials.

This unassuming fungus may help support vitality and liver health and could help with bones and muscles. Rich in antioxidants, turkey tail also helps protect your little one’s cells from damage and chronic inflammation caused by something called oxidative stress. This is very beneficial because some severe health issues are linked to having too much oxidative stress, including certain types of cancer and heart disease. 

The antioxidants in turkey tail mushroom can help with certain types of cancer and heart disease.

Furthermore, this functional mushroom is known for improving our furry friends’ immune function. It contains two protein-bound polysaccharide complexes, PSP & PSK, which help stimulate the immune response. These components may also help slow tumor growth. To top it all off, the herb’s immune-supporting properties may help with numerous other health issues like infections in your little one.

Precautions with Turkey Tail Mushroom for Dogs and Cats

One thing that is very important to note is: Do not use turkey tail mushroom if your little one is allergic to mushrooms. If they indeed are allergic to mushrooms, we recommend our other cancer support, NHV ES-Clear, instead. This herbal extract can also help ease cancer symptoms and balance your furkid’s compromised immune system.

Otherwise, turkey tail mushroom is safe for dogs and cats when administered in the correct dosage. That’s why you should always opt for supplements formulated by veterinarians. If your furkid is already taking other medications, please remember to respect a break of at least 30 minutes between the drugs and the herbal supplement. Keeping your local veterinarian informed of your pet’s full regimen is recommended.

NHV Natures Immuno with Coriolus Versicolor

Because of its extensive health benefits, our vets have added turkey tail mushroom to one of our herbal blends, NHV Natures Immuno. This ingredient is added to help support pets with cancer, viral infections, or other conditions that cause their immune system to be compromised. 

On top of turkey tail mushroom, Natures Immuno contains 4 other medicinal mushrooms (Cordyceps, Reishi, Agaricus, and Shiitake). They work together to serve as an anti-cancer and anti-tumor support, help strengthen the immune system to fight diseases, and help increase energy and promote general well-being. The herbal formula may also be useful for your sweetheart’s cardiovascular, liver, kidney, diabetic, and endocrine health.

The health and safety of your little one are our priorities. For this reason, a holistic veterinarian and master herbalist with over 50 years of combined experience formulated all our supplements. On top of that, we have a team of knowledgeable pet experts to help with your furmily.
