We made the switch to Purina ProPlan Bright Mind dog food a little while ago.  We have been surprised at how quickly our dog’s mind has perked up. He is remembering his old tricks again.  We saw visible results within 30 days. 

According to Purina experts, around age 7 dog’s minds begin to change because the glucose metabolism changes and can affect their memory, learning, awareness or decision making. Purina Pro Plan discovered a way to promote alertness and mental sharpness in dogs 7+ through nutrition and has introduced BRIGHT MIND Adult 7+ formulas.

Buddy, our dog, does not like squirrels in his yard. And I am completely on board with this. I find squirrels a nuisance and apparently so does Buddy. He chases them right out of the yard. He has done such a good job in the last couple weeks that we no longer have any squirrels. But he keeps watch so that no rogue squirrel invades his territory.

The Purina ProPlan Bright Mind food found at PetSmart contains enhanced botanical oils. I love that they are using these in their food. I have been using essential oils to support my mind and body. So why shouldn’t I use them for our dog too.  The enhanced botanical oils are shown to promote alertness and mental sharpness in dogs seven and older.  This amazing food has helped Buddy remember his distaste for squirrels. And he loves the food!

Below is a video of a day in the life of our senior dog, Buddy. I narrate for him because while the food helps his memory and awareness, it doesn’t make him talk. 


I have been very impressed with this food. If you have a dog that is considered a senior (7+), There is a coupon for you.  Right now if you Spend $10 on any Purina Pro Plan Dry Dog or Cat Food* at PetSmart between 8/31 and 10/4, you can save $10 on your next Purina Pro Plan Dry Food purchase, 14-lb. or more, on or before 11/1.

Do you have any pets? Are any of them considered Seniors (7+)? What are your pets favorite things to do?

Too bad Buddy's new food couldn't teach him how to talk...that would have made for a good video! Thanks for sharing! #client
