My Scottie turned 13 in June and really went downhill. We thought we might lose him. He was depressed and wouldn't eat at all. Took him to the vet and he did have an infection and got a 7 day antibiotic. Even when he felt better, he wouldn't eat. Saw the ad from Bright Mind and decided to try it. He not only ate it but in a short time he became more like he was at six. Didn't have to be lifted up on things as he could jump up again. He trots down the road on walks and loves to chase things again. That was on ad on TV that Was true.
We have two 15 year old Border Terriers on Bright Mind. Both are retired service dogs. The food has made an incredible difference. Chewy has started doing things for me again. I had not realized how sluggish she had become. This food is so fantastic that I started my current service dog on it. He is also a Border terrier and will be 8 in January. He is so incredibly smart and I want to protect his brain power.
Since our vet recommended Purina Pro Plan for our 13 year old Sheltie, he does not have the stomach issues. I buy mostly the turkey and rice - no corn, wheat and soy. I also can see a difference in his alertness.

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.
