Precautions for Using Cordyceps for Dogs & Cats

While Cordyceps is generally considered safe for dogs and cats, it’s important to use it with caution and take proper precautions. Overdosing or misusing Cordyceps may be harmful to dogs and cats alike.

To keep your furkiddo safe, it’s best to opt for pet-specific Cordyceps products and consult a veterinarian before use. This is especially important if your little one is on any medications or has an underlying health condition.

How We Use Cordyceps 

NHV’s master herbalist and holistic vet responsible for our formulations included Cordyceps in Natures Immuno. This all-natural blend contains five different highly researched medicinal mushrooms – Turkey Tail, Reishi, Shitake, Agaricus, and Cordyceps for dogs and cats.

When choosing a mushroom blend for your furkiddo, it’s important to make sure that the bioavailability of the mushrooms is taken into consideration. NHV’s Natures Immuno blend is in liquid form and is readily absorbed into the digestive tract, unlike powdered or raw mushrooms.
