Our experts have been studying aging and the effect of nutrition since 2003.
This research led to the remarkable discovery that nutrition can indeed make a difference.
Maybe your dog is interacting with you less. Or has lower engagement in daily activities. These are just some of the signs your dog may be aging. And like you, we’ve wondered why?
For the more than a decade we’ve studied aging in pets and asked, “what if nutrition could positively impact a dog’s cognitive health?” And we made a remarkable discovery: it can.
There is a reason your dog may be experiencing these age-related changes. Around age 7, the glucose metabolism in a dog’s brain begins to change – affecting things like memory, learning or decision making.
We discovered that enhanced botanical oils can be used as an additional energy source for a dog’s brain, helping him think more like he did when he was younger.
