Wholesome nutrition, based upon feeding functional foods, is the key to maintaining a healthy immune system and resistance to disease. Discussion will focus on: Nutrition and thyroid functions affect on dogs; Nutrigenomics, an emerging science that studies the molecular relationships between nutrition and the response of genes in promoting health. Dr. Dodds will also cover how different diets elicit different patterns of gene and protein expression as well as metabolite production…these are termed Molecular dietary signatures. The talk will describe how basic functional food ingredients and immune-balancing nutrients help to maintain health and reduce inflammation and disease. Discussion around promoting healthy endocrine and immune function for longevity, well-being and cognitive awareness will be included. This is especially important to help maintain thyroid function and normal behavior in dogs with heritable and familial thyroid disorder.
