In the past if your dog was suffering from epilepsy or canine cognitive dysfunction syndrome (also known as Doggy Alzheimer’s), the most that could be done was to treat your four-legged friend with anti-seizure medications. But now there is a nutritional way to help your dog that works in combination with the medication.
Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets NC NeuroCare Canine Formula is the first and only diet to nutritionally manage dogs with epilepsy as an adjunct to veterinary therapy. It is formulated with medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil, which has been shown to help reduce seizures in epileptic dogs on medication. It also helps to nutritionally manage dogs suffering from canine cognitive dysfunction syndrome (CDS).
How does it help a dog with epilepsy or cognitive dysfunction syndrome?
Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets NC NeuroCare Canine Formula adds ketones as an energy source for the brain, an approach used extensively in children with epilepsy. Dogs readily metabolize MCTs to produce ketones, scientists and researchers believe MCTs may have direct anti-seizure effects by blocking certain receptors in the brain. Purina NeuroCare formula also features eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), antioxidants and B vitamins, which research has shown can help dogs with cognitive dysfunction syndrome. Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets NC NeuroCare Canine Formula has no known side effects.
Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets NC NeuroCare Canine Formula is available in 6 lbs. or 11 lbs. bags.
