Global animal health business Diamond V introduced TruMune to the international pet food industry at the recent Petfood Forum 2019 in Kansas City, Mo. TruMune is Diamond V's most advanced immune health product specifically for use in dog and cat diets, according to an announcement from the company.
"TruMune offers benefits for all types of pet foods, including complete foods and treats," said Ilya Frumkin, director of companion animal business for Diamond V. "TruMune's new dual-action helps support both immune function and digestive health for optimal pet performance, health and vitality."
According to the company, scientific research demonstrates that TruMune supports the potential of the pet's immune system for greater mobility, higher activity levels and overall performance, health and vitality.
"We tested TruMune over the course of two years in controlled scientific studies conducted at universities and an independent canine research center," said Dr. Tammi Epp, director of monogastric health research and technical support with Diamond V.
The canine research center studies showed that the product improved stride length, activity per kilometer and average moving speed per kilometer compared to dogs fed the same diet without TruMune, the announcement said.
Epp noted that Diamond V products work naturally with the biology of the animal to maintain immune strength, support digestive tissue integrity and promote a healthy microbial balance.
