Advancing Brain Health

Brain health gets little attention until owners notice neurological or behavioral problems in pets. By the time these changes are observed, there may already be potentially irreversible damage to the brain. But what if we could intervene earlier?

Purina’s research has led to nutritional innovations that can help veterinarians protect brain health, manage age-related cognitive changes in dogs and cats and improve outcomes associated with idiopathic epilepsy in dogs. Only 2% of veterinarians are aware of the link between brain health and nutrition.1 Greater knowledge and understanding is an opportunity to have more proactive conversations with owners of senior pets.
