Help For Your Aging Dog

It's so tough to watch our pets age. A lot of elderly dogs experience some cognitive decline. Hearing loss is common which can make them frustrated. Some pet owners report their dog seems confused, barking and most of all anxious. Dog Brain Booster contains research-based beneficial brain nutrients such as Phosphatidyl Serine & Acetyl-L-Carnitine to support brain health. For us, we used the Dog Brain Booster initially when Legend was young to support his brain health due to his epilepsy. In the past year, we noticed him running into a room barking randomly and then seemed confused when we came up behind him. Using the Dog Brain Booster has reduced the frequency of those episodes and seems to give him considerable energy. Many pet owners report their dogs show improvement in their muscle control and see an overall improvement in dementia symptoms. If you have a senior dog and notice any signs of dementia, consider Dog Brain Booster for added brain nutrition.

How Aging Can Affect Your Dog's Brain And Behavior

Just like the rest of the body, aging affects your dog’s brain.  As your dog ages, there is a higher risk of developing neurological or cognitive disorders.   This is because the brain is highly susceptible to free radical damage (oxidative stress) due to its high oxygen use, high fat content and metabolic activity.  Free radicals are reactive oxygen-containing byproducts of metabolism and can cause damage to cell membranes.   Damage to the brain’s cells can affect your dog’s behavior, energy level and motor coordination.   

Common age-related,  neurological conditions seen in older dogs:

Canine cognitive dysfunction (doggie dementia) or Sundowner’s syndrome is similar to Alzheimer’s in people. Small changes in behavior and daily routine, such as sleeping more and seeming disconnected, can progress to confusion, disorientation, anxiety, irritability and disruption of the sleep/wake cycle.

Vestibular disease or “old dog disease” is often confused with the symptoms of a brain tumor or stroke. Dogs with these conditions may exhibit a loss of balance, uncontrolled eye movement, and difficulty in standing and maintaining balance.

Dogs may exhibit motor coordination issues as they age. Senior dogs that begin to stumble when they walk or those that knuckle and scuff their paws may be showing signs of a neurological condition.

Ask Ariel’s Dog Brain Booster is an all natural supplement that promotes dog brain health and provides important cognitive support for dogs with dementia, brain tumors and neurological motor coordination disorders. It contains powerful, science-based brain nutrients, such as phosphatidylserine and Acetyl-L-carnitine, that have been extensively researched and proven to enhance memory, improve mental acuity and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Dog Brain Booster is the most comprehensive canine brain boosting supplement available to support your dog’s brain health.
