Why should I feed a Purina® Pro Plan® Bright Mind™ Adult 7+ product? Around age 7, the metabolism of glucose in dogs’ brains becomes less efficient, which can affect their 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.
