Last month our family switched our senior dog’s food to Purina Pro Plan® BRIGHT MIND Adult 7+®. We have seen such a change in our Lyla’s behavior, interaction with our family, and activity level since switching her to Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind that I had to share with you all the top 5 reasons to start your dogs New Year off with Bright Mind!
Get your precious pets back in action with Purina Pro Plan® BRIGHT MIND Adult 7+® available at PetSmart and help your aging dog!
Reason Number One: Happiness
As pet lovers we want our furkids to be happy. As our pets become older we notice that they just are not as vibrant as they once were. Seriously, we know our pets actually do smile when they are happy but when their diets are not made for their metabolism and age, they are just not as spunky and lively. Switching your pet to Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind affords your senior dog the nutrition it needs and brings out their inner puppy, no matter how old they are. I love seeing the smile back on our Lyla’s face again, but more than that, she is having fun! She used to love barking at the other dogs in the neighborhood, the next door neighbors chickens, and even the neighbors themselves. In the past year we have noticed she no longer did this. At first we assumed it was just due to mellowing in her older age. I mean us humans tend to mellow out and relax about things right? The fact is though, Lyla’s mellowing was due to lack of energy, and not being fed the right food for her age. Once on the Pro Plan Bright Mind food she got her spark back and is now back to barking up a storm and barking at the neighbor dogs does make her quite happy.
Reason Number Two: Energy
Now I won’t pretend to know just how much energy it takes to bark at the neighbor dogs for over an hour. Nor do I know how frustrated my neighbors may get at her doing so. One thing I do know is that before Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind, Lyla did not have enough energy to be outside in the cold longer than it took her to go potty! Now, Lyla is back in action, not only barking but running and playing as well!
Reason Number Three: Interactivity
For about the past six months or more, prior to starting her on Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind, Lyla had been spending a great deal of time alone, in the same area of our home, on the same pillow, removed from the family. We sure missed her hanging out with us and begging to get up on the sofa! We kept encouraging her to spend time with us by brining her pillow into the living room and laying it beside us but she would just go back to that same spot and lay on the hardwood floor. Since she has been on Bright Mind she is back to hanging out with the fam, begging to get up on the sofa again (and of course we let her), and no longer being a loner in the far room of the house. She is also far more responsive. Before Bright Mind Lyla barely acknowledged us when we called her name. Now, she not only looks at us but has her cute little expressions back too!
Reason Number Four: Playfulness
While it is great to have Lyla back hanging out with us again, and being a part of the family, I am also happy to be able to tell you that she is also far more playful than before! Sure barking at the neighborhood dogs is playful but a bit of a solitary event. Granted I could get on all fours and bark along with her but the ground is way too cold for that right now! Instead I am pleased that Lyla is being rambunctious and fun just enjoying fooling around outside, as cold as it may be!
Reason Number Five: Health
I believe it goes without saying that when you look at the four reasons to switch to Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind listed above, that health is another obvious reason to switch your pup as well. We adore our pets, and we want them to be as happy and healthy as they can be, for as long as they can be. When your pup has more energy, is more interactive, more playful, and happy, surely they are exhibiting signs of improved overall health. Thanks to Purina Pro Plan® BRIGHT MIND Adult 7+® Lyla’s got her groove back and we love it and so does she!
After a long day of playing hard, barking her little fluff ball head off, and being young at heart, she can rest on her favorite yucky ol pillow, and her family can rest assured it is not because she is feeling unwell.
Lyla clearly has had enough of the paparazzi and wants her rest time so she put up her paw. With that, Lyla and I leave you with this last thought …
Get your senior pup some Purina Pro Plan® BRIGHT MIND Adult 7+® at PetSmart and look forward to the changes you see in your pet.
