Bright Minds Dog Food – What It Can Do For Your Dog – Review

Unfortunately, if you are a dog owner, there comes a time when your dog starts aging and isn’t able to do the same things he used to do. As your dog ages, he might be interacting with you less, or have lower engagement in daily activities.

I am a dog owner of a 11-year-old Golden Retriever, and I started seeing it a few years ago. I switched his dog food to Bright Minds Dog Food, and within two weeks there was a noticeable change in him.

He started joining in with the family again, wagging his tail more and sometimes, jumping and running around like a puppy again. He seemed to pay more attention to what we were doing, and wanted to be more involved with us.

What Is Behind Bright Minds Product

Purina Pro Plan has studied aging in dogs for the last decade. What they wanted to find out was if nutrition could positively impact a dog’s cognitive health.

This is what their research found. At around age 7, the glucose metabolism in a dog’s brain begins to change. This can affect things like memory, learning or decision-making. Purina also discovered that enhanced botanical oils can be used as an additional energy source for a dog’s brain, helping him think more like he did when he was younger.

Reviews and Ratings

There are hundreds of reviews available from people who have purchased Bright Minds Dog Food, and all theBright Minds dog food reviews are very positive. The most common report from dog owners is that their dog is more active both mentally and physically since they switched to Bright Minds.

The amount of time it took to notice a difference in their dog widely varies from as little as a week to 3 months. But most report that their 7+ dog now plays like a puppy, is more involved and doesn’t sleep as much as he used to.

Most reports also state that they were happy to have their dog back that they were missing. The biggest negative that was reported, and why some of the different formulas rate a little lower is the value of the product for the money it costs. It is definitely a higher priced dog food.

Turkey and Rice Formula – rates 4.9 stars out of 5.

Chicken and Rice Formula – rates 4.7 stars out of 5.

Large Breed Formula – rates 4.7 stars out of 5.

Small Breed Formula – rates 4.8 stars out of 5.

Beef and Brown Rice Moist Formula – rates 5 stars out of 5.

Turkey and Brown Rice Moist Formula – rates 4.3 stars out of 5.

My Thoughts

Since I have actual used this product, and have been using this product for about 2 years, I would not just consider this a review, but a testimonial to the product. Bright Minds dog food has made a big difference in how my dog is acting.

I feel that it works and has made my older dog actually act a bit younger than he really is, and isn’t that what all of usBright Minds dog food want, more time with our dogs? There are several varieties to choose from for the picky eater, to the smaller dog, to the large breed, moist or dry. Whichever works best for your dog.

I would suggest giving it a try to see if you notice a difference with your aging dog. What do you have to lose? If you try it for 30 days and don’t notice a change with your dog either mentally, physically or both, you can get a full refund for the product and you will only be out the stamp to mail your request in. I would consider that a pretty low risk test.

One other important item to point out, this dog food is made in the U.S. I feel that is very important, since there has been several times dog food and treats made in different countries has caused fatalities.

 

If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below. Or, if you have been using Bright Minds, I would love to hear from you on how it is working for your dog.
