Category: Dog Food for Cognitive Function

Dog food for cognitive function is specially formulated to help older dogs regain some of their brain health.  As dogs age, some get the equivalent of Alzheimer’s disease.  They may not be as interactive, forget what they were doing (going outside to potty and then forgetting to potty), etc.  Certain nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids help support brain health.  I recommend these diets instead of a traditional senior diet.

When is your dog considered a senior?  It depends on their size.

  • Small dogs: 11–12 years old
  • Medium-sized dogs: 10 years old
  • Large dogs: 8 years old
