Cat’s immune systems are both the surveillance and the defense systems that protect your pet from any type of foreign invasion including fungi, viral, and bacterial infections. It also helps to protect against pollens, toxins, and microbes. If this immune system becomes weakened, every body system and function of your cat is placed at risk.
There are several natural treatments for the immune system that can fight off most any type of outside invasion and they will include vitamins as well as several herbs and herb supplements. There are two parts of your cat’s immune systems; the innate portion and the adaptive portion. They work separately of each other but they also work very closely together when it is necessary. The can be considered the outside and the inside defense systems, but the real battle that your cat fights starts with the outside, or their skin and hair coats.
Any type of living organism has an innate immune system and your cat is no different, as their skin is the first part of this system. It is considered both non-specific as well as non-adaptive in that it is designed to keep everything out and it does not change even after repeated attacks. The skin of your cat produces and than secretes antibacterial substances that will counter attack and hinder the growth of bacteria, viruses, or fungi.
But https://www.tebu-bio.com/blog/2017/10/10/six-new-reporter-cellular-lines-for-immune-checkpoint-drug-discovery/ does not stop with the skin, as it also includes stomach acid produced as a defense, as well as mucous in the respiratory system. The adaptive portion of your cat’s immune systems is the back up to the innate form and reacts much more different and is very sophisticated. It has a memory that keeps tract of any type of invasion and if attacked again, it reacts much quicker than the original attack; it also reacts differently to each type of attack and adapts as needed.
Working together these systems prevent most types of attacks, but just like any system, they can fail or get out of sequence. Causes of immune problems: Most cats will suffer from some type of an allergy during their lifetime. Allergies are simply an over reaction by your pets system to some type of an allergen. When these allergens attack your cats system, it reacts rapidly and releases histamine as a defense. If it reacts to the wrong type of infection or an attack, it is called autoimmunity; if it over reacts, it is called hypersensitivity.
