Plant sterols are naturally occurring fats that are present in fruits, vegetables, and other plants. Two of these plant sterols – beta-sitosterol (BSS) and its glycoside (BSSG) – have been shown, even at very low levels, to enhance the activity of cells that are well known to have positive immune system activity. In particular, these two plant sterols enhance the activity of the T-helper cells. The T-helper cells are arguably the most important cells in adaptive immunity, because they are required for almost all adaptive immune responses. The T-helper cells not only help activate B cells to secrete antibodies and macrophages to destroy ingested microbes, they also help activate cytotoxic T cells to kill infected target cells. ModucareVET improves the ratio of T-helper 1 to T-helper 2 cells, and, as a result, the companion animal’s cellular immunity is enhanced and overactive immune responses are down-regulated. The potential of Moducare® to optimize immune function in humans has been demonstrated in clinical studies.
ModucareVET also helps maintain a normal ratio of two hormones produced by the adrenal gland – cortisol and DHEA. An optimal balance of these hormones helps to buffer negative stress responses as they occur. ModucareVET is for dogs, cats, and horses.

My furry girl has a autoimmune disease that suddenly turned into Stomatitis. I had in months before been giving Moducare. (for humans, a powder in a cap) You needed to give away from food. And it was hard to do as I was already spacing meds and i have a job. (maybe if I had stuck with it, it would have saved her so much pain) Found these chews ! She loves a treat and after so much meds or supplements, it nice to give something that puts me in a favored light. To be honest she wont touch them. While light in color they have a smoky smell. Shes never been a fan of anything smoked. I bought some Dental greenies and mixed them with the ModucareVet chews. After a wk the 2 had blended scent and flavor. Now she sees it as a treat. Gobbles it right up ! Wonderful ! These arrived a day early, and I live where overnight takes a wk. The chews not hard,nor super soft. For her sore mouth I break them up. Shes eating them now , tho its only been a few days. I will update this review when its closer to reorder. At the very least I feel like Iam trying something. And the science behind this makes me believe it will help. Want to add that I love that I can down load and print all the info. Nice to have in my files.
