Bovine Heart Valve & Colostrum

My mother has a bovine heart valve and has an Immunoglobulin deficiency and her WBC is still low a year later.  Her infusions do not seem to be increasing her levels so I had read about Colostrum because it has 35% Immunoglobulins.  Since the colostrum is bovine, would it cause an effect to her bovine heart valve?

There are no reported cases of colostrum causing any type of immune reaction with the bovine heart valves.  Should be fine.  Best of luck.

Are you thinking of offering her colostrum orally because of its immunoglobulin content?
