Recently we had a chance to start my Granddog Lyla on Purina Pro Plan® BRIGHT MIND 7+ which meant a trip to PetSmart for Lyla!

Our precious Lyla is important to us, as all of our pets are. If you are a pet lover I am sure you feel the same about your furkids too! When we began to see a decline in her energy levels, and attention levels we were concerned. We also know that as dogs age these things can be expected. We wanted Lyla to have her spunk back, and be more active so when we learned that Purina Pro Plan® BRIGHT MIND 7+ could potentially restore energy and spunk in our Lyla we knew we had to give it a try!
We loved learning more about Purina Pro Plan® BRIGHT MIND 7+ during our visit to PetSmart and Lyla made a new friend.

It is difficult for us to think of Lyla as a senior dog, to us she is still a puppy, but she had not been acting like a puppy recently.
According to experts at Purina Pro Plan, around age seven, the glucose metabolism in a dog’s brain begins to change, which can affect memory, learning, awareness and decision making. We began to notice this change in our Lyla and knew we had to do something to help her.
Lyla used to be such a rambunctious puppy and of course like any living being as we grow older we mellow, but Lyla had become so disinterested in play, lazy, and was acting sad. It made us feel like we were doing something wrong. We also noticed that she had very little energy. She loves taking walks, even after she started changing she still loved her walks, but her walks went from fifteen minutes down to about five minutes before she wanted to come back in. She was worn out and lacked interest in no time. It was not just her physical energy though. Her mental alertness had slowed substantially too. Lyla just acted as if she was not connecting with us as a family any longer. She had an almost "spaced out" expression on her cute little puppy face. It was heartbreaking!

Since using Purina Pro Plan® BRIGHT MIND 7+ Lyla has a lot of that puppy spirit back, and we love it, so does she!
Purina Pro Plan works because Purina Pro Plan BRIGHT MIND Adult 7+ formulas contain enhanced botanical oils shown to promote alertness and mental sharpness in dogs seven and older with visible results within 30 days and when added to the daily diet of dogs 7+. Formulas that contained enhanced botanical oils promoted memory, attention and trainability.
Pretty cool if you ask me, after all a lot of you already know that I am a huge advocate of natural oils and use them for my human family in everything from cooking to health care! Botanical oils are good for my human family and my furkid family too!
|Week 3 On Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind - The Spunk Is Back!|
"Owners who feed their senior dogs Purina Pro Plan BRIGHT MIND Adult 7+ as a daily diet may notice differences in owner-dog interaction, interest in play and the ability to adapt and cope with change."I have to say this statement has been true for our Lyla! We have noticed her more lively, more interactive, more interested in play, more spunky, fun, and more like her "old self" again, which means her younger self! She has more spunk, her tail is wagging happily again, and she is far more interested in play and interaction with the family. She is back to chasing after the cats in the household. In addition, she absolutely loves the way it tastes!
Lyla is thriving on Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind and we all so happy! Lyla eagerly awaits for Santa's arrival in hopes of more Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind!
