Mushrooms are becoming increasingly popular as a functional food for humans and our loved pets! Mushrooms have far-reaching benefits, and each variety of fungi has its own unique properties. There are, however, beneficial features of mushrooms that all varieties share. One of the biggest reasons functional mushrooms are good for dogs and cats is because they help their immune systems be more resilient. When our pets consume mushrooms such as turkey tail, reishi, lion’s mane, and cordyceps. Mushrooms activate a the alert system in the body, and a message to send resources where needed.
