Our lab, Bear is 12. He’s been sick with Cushing’s syndrome for the past two years. We’ve managed to get that under control, but noticed last month that he had begun to drift mentally and would occasionally appear to not know who we were. He would sometimes wander in our yard as though he was lost. I did some research, checked with our vet and placed him on Pro Plan for Bright Mind Adult 7+ Turkey & Rice formula (dry). He Loves this food!! That in itself was a blessing as he was beginning to not eat well. After a month, I am seeing a more alert Bear, he’s playing with his toys again, no more issues of looking lost, and occasionally breaks out into a run in the yard. Thank you for providing a solution to this issue.
I am good friends with an Australian Cattle Dog breeder of 30+ years and she just recently put her 12 year old male on Bright Mind and the difference is incredible. He is much more mobile, he wants to play again, and is much more tolerant of all temperatures, which is very important in Minnesota, as our summers are steamy like Florida, and our winters are harsh and cold. Gauley still works livestock at his age! Along with a few supplements, I can see Gauley living longer than he would have originally
I’ve hadSoft Coated Wheaten Terriers for 30 Years and Bright Mind has been invaluable for my older dogs! I’ve fed it since it came out and it made a huge difference in my 15+ year old. My 9 year old is now on the Turkey and Rice 7+ and plays like a young dog. Big thanks to Purina for their support of canine health research!

We recommend that you keep your dog in ideal body condition and not allow your dog to become overweight. The exact amount of food your dog requires will need to be adjusted according to age, activity and environment. But a good place to start is with these guidelines for an average, active, adult dog fed once daily.
MAKING THE SWITCH TO PRO PLAN
Although you'll be anxious to see the difference Pro Plan can make in your dog, please allow 7 - 10 days to ease the transition from your dog’s current food. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more Pro Plan until you're feeding Pro Plan exclusively. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.
Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.
For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.
