Purina® Pro Plan® Bright Minds™
Around age 7, a dog's glucose metabolism in the brain begins to change, which can affect memory, learning, awareness or decision-making.
WHY SHOULD I FEED A PURINA® PRO PLAN® BRIGHT MIND™ ADULT 7+ PRODUCT?
When dogs reach middle age (around 7 years), the metabolism of glucose in their brains becomes less efficient, which can affect memory, learning, awareness or decision-making. Purina® Pro Plan® Bright Mind™ Adult 7+ formulas contain enhanced botanical oils shown to promote alertness and mental sharpness in dogs age 7+, with visible results within 30 days.
WHAT ARE ENHANCED BOTANICAL OILS?
Enhanced botanical oils are plant-based oils like palm kernel oil and coconut oil that have been modified to primarily consist of specific medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCTs are an effective energy source for the brain cells of dogs age 7+.
WHAT ARE MCTS?
The MCTs, which stands for Medium-Chain Triglycerides, in our Purina® Pro Plan® Bright Mind™ Adult 7+ products are derived from botanical oils. MCTs provide an easily absorbed, additional source of fuel for the brains of dogs age 7 and older. MCTs naturally nourish senior dogs’ minds — helping them think more like they did when they were younger.
WHEN SHOULD I START FEEDING MY DOG A PURINA® PRO PLAN® BRIGHT MIND™ PRODUCT?
You should begin feeding your maturing dog a Purina® Pro Plan® Bright Mind™ Adult 7+ product around 7 years of age.
DOES MY OLDER DOG HAVE DIFFERENT NUTRITIONAL NEEDS?
