Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only food for us! I saw some advertising for Bright Mind a few years ago and decided to look into it...our dog was then about 9 years old, and while her food was okay, I liked what I had found about the Pro Plan series and thought we’d give it a try. Amazing! Just as some of the ads have said, give it a month — you’ll see the difference! Her weight was down, her energy up, she loved the taste, and she was somehow more “herself” than she’d been in a while. We are definite believers in the power of Bright Mind, and our now 12 year old agrees...we’ve never considered another food, and the next puppy will be on Pro Plan her whole life long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Shepherd LOVES this! I bought this after my 10 year old Shepherd/Rottweilers annual check up. She was on a different senior brand - I won't name names - but just didn't seem herself anymore. For starters, she is much more excited to eat this than she's ever been for any food - happy puppy makes for a happy fur momma. Also, she seems more playful with my other dogs. She has also started developing some arthritis in her hips and knees, this food in combination with a daily OsteoPlex supplement - which I HIGHLY recommend - has taken away all of her limping. I will definitely be using this food for all of my dogs! Thanks ProPlan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you for helping my dogs feel better!!!! We have 2 fur babies (one is 12 and the other is 7). We heard about your product on TV and decided to try it. It has made the biggest difference in both our boys. Buster our oldest was not acting like himself, not playful as he once was. Didn't want to play, wanted to sleep. One month after giving them the pro plan bright minds he was acting as young as Clyde! It gave us hope. Last year we lost his brother to heart disease (who was the same age as Buster)We were so worried about losing Buster. This has made the biggest difference. We have told everyone we know how good the product is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have my dog back!!! My 11 year old Catahoula, Bayou was suffering from Canine dementia and sun downers syndrome...When the sun went down, she started barking and pacing. Sometimes she could not figure out how to jump off the bed and sometimes she would look at me as if I were a stranger...I had to put her on strong sedative at night so that we both could sleep...After three weeks of eating Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind I noticed that she had more energy and could figure out how to jump off the bed...After a month she is off the sedative and has no more night barking or pacing...Thank you for giving my dog back...She is her old self and I will always be grateful for your wonderful product. I tell everyone about the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow - What a difference! I have a 9 year old Labrador, retired show champion. She has had 3 neurological surgeries that had left her with limited mobility compared to her pre-surgical activity level. Lyra has been on large breed Bright Minds for the past 3 weeks and the change is nothing short of miraculous. She is engaged more with the other dogs, she plays and retrieves and is back to her old self. I have my old show girl back. She's bright, she's energetic and I thought I would never be able to show my girl again. She lives to go to the shows and I will now be able to return to the ring with her at Specialty veterans classes. Thank you Bright have given me my girl back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purina pro plan Bright Mind Large Breed I started "Morgan" my Bernese Mtn Dog on Bright Mind 6 months ago. It really has made a difference in his cognitive behavior and ability and willingness to play and try new things. Morgan is 9 years old and was slowing down mentally, so when I heard if this product I was willing to give it a try and I really am grateful for the results, which I noticed within a couple of days. It also seems to help with his mobility as well. Thank you Purina. I have 5 Berners and I only feed Purina products. We also have a terrier adoptee that loves the products. As well as several cats.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You did not have a question about dog allergies? I have raised four Dobermans and two rescued Greyhounds on Pro Plan and was very satisfied with the product. During the month of May in 2010, I adopted a mixed Labrador/Retriever male who was supposed to be about 3-4 years of age, who had a problem with constantly licking his feet. The vet tried many medications for constant licking of feet. A friend finally told me about Pro Plan Skin and Sensitive dry mix and I took him off all medication and slowly introduced it to him. He is still licking his toes, but not as bad as before. I am hoping he continues to improve

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New brand out, just in time! My dog of 15 years was diagnosed with spinal Spondylosis. She was not maintaining weight around her spine and suddenly not able to walk. She would hang her head down low and seemed distant. I purchased a bag of Bright Mind and started to feed it to her. After about two weeks she was raising her head and putting more oomph in her walking. After about one month she was gaining weight around her boney spine. Although we still have a long way to go, we are walking around 2 blocks at one time. I am happy with the results and look forward to our next bag.

<p>RECOMMENDED DAILY FEEDING AMOUNTS</p> <p>Using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 115 g of Pro Plan.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>MAKING THE SWITCH TO PRO PLAN®</p> <p>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.</p> <p>Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.</p> <p>For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.</p>
