COGNITIVE PRODUCTS

Just like cognitive decline in elderly people, there is no “one size fits all approach”.   but research has shown that the best approach is a combination of these things:

  • Daily walks
  • Cognitive diets (Neurocare from Purina, b/d from Science Diet)
  • MCT supplementation
  • Selegiline (a prescription medication that helps with cognitive function)
  • Fish oils as per this chart: https://vetmedbiosci.colostate.edu/vth/services/orthopedic-medicine/fish-oil-dosing/
  • B Vitamins
  • Melatonin
  • Sensory stimulations — daily brushing, touching and balance exercises
  • For obese dogs, caloric restriction has also been shown to help

* L-theanine: An amino acid found naturally in green tea. It directly stimulates the production of alpha brain waves, which create a state of deep relaxation, wakefulness, and mental awareness.
* Magnolia / Phellodendron: The combination of Magnolia and Phellodendron extracts appears to be synergistic, with the combination controlling stress and anxiety more effectively than either compound used alone.
* Whey Protein Concentrate: Contains NMXSLQ05®, a trademarked high quality protein source which supplements ten essential amino acids including the precursors of glutathione and serotonin.
