I recently told you about our Switch to Purina® ProPlan® Bright Mind for Mr. Cooper. For senior dogs, Bright Mind is designed to improve alertness and mental sharpness in dogs age 7+.
We started by slowly switching out his then current dog food for Bright Mind, and he is now only eating Bright Mind. The improvements seen with Purina ProPlan Bright Mind are enough for us to keep going.
One of the first improvements seen with Purina ProPlan Bright Mind that we also started to notice with Mr. Cooper was his response rate.
I had been thinking he was going deaf when he wouldn’t come in the first few times he was called. I’m realizing it was more his lack of alertness than lack of hearing.
Over the last few weeks he’s started to respond by the second and even first time he’s called versus the fourth or fifth. Thankfully his hearing is fine, and now his alertness is returning to normal too!
Remember Mr. Cooper’s lack of interest in playing fetch that I mentioned before? He would forget we were playing or have no clue the direction his toy went.
According to experts at Purina Pro Plan, around age seven the glucose metabolism in a dog’s brain begins to change, which can affect memory, learning, awareness or decision making. I have a feeling that is what was going on with Mr. Cooper.
Now, he’s on top of his game again! He heads in the right direction the first time, without hesitation, and brings the toys back to keep the game going. He’s remembering that we are playing and aware of the direction we are throwing. Fetch is fun again!
We’ve noticed a difference in our interactions with Mr. Cooper, and his interest in play and ability to adapt and cope with changes. These are differences pet owners may notice when feeding their senior dogs Purina ProPlan Bright Mind as a daily diet.
Wondering why that is? Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind contains enhanced botanical oils shown to promote alertness and mental sharpness in dogs seven and older with visible results within 30 days and I’m thankful we did!
Dogs are considered senior by the time they reach age seven and there are approximately 87 million dogs in the U.S., and an estimated 44 percent of them are seven years and older. If your dog is one of them, give Purina ProPlan Bright Mind a try!
