You know they are in there somewhere, in those eyes that follow you everywhere, the tail that wags whenever you come near, hidden in the head that tilts to the side, hanging on your every word. But maybe you feel like time has stolen away that silly pup and you wonder if he is gone. Around age 7 dogs really begin to slow down and show the signs of aging. The glucose metabolism in their brain begins to change, This affects memory, learning, awareness, and decision making. Botanical oils can help combat that and bring back at least glimpses of your sweet pup.
Purina®Pro Plan® Bright Mind* formula was created using these Botanical oils to promote memory, attention, and trainability. My girls- aged almost 10 and just 8 years have been on it for 3 months now and I am noticing that they are more alert than they were and sharper throughout the day when they perk up to play. I also love that chicken is the first ingredient in their formulation- the girls love the taste., as well as an amino fatty acid, and glucosamine- my achy older senior seems to have definite improved mobility.We have now switched over exclusively to the Bright Mind formula after our initial gradual introduction.
What are some other things you can do to ensure your dog feels great and gets bursts of playfulness like the puppy from long ago?
Make sure they have plenty of cool clean water to drink inside and out.
Provide your vet recommended allowance of dry food like Bright Mind to your dog.
Give them exercise daily, but don’t overdo it.
Provide a comfy and quiet place to rest when they need it.
Rotate toys, give them something to keep them busy when you aren’t home.
You can’t tell this senior she isn’t a puppy, despite that white little muzzle, she is still convinced that she is the great lizard hunter and she is always on the prowl outside.
Give it a try and see if you don’t get some results in bringing the puppy back out in your senior dog. I grabbed another bag while we were shopping at PetSmart for the girls along with new bed and some toys.. These pups no matter their age are part of our family and are very special to us, what you feed them is just as important as whats in your own food.
